National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

XXI Grand Prix De Pau

An Easy Lotus Victory Pau, FRANCE, April 3rd. APART from being the twenty-first race to be held by the Automobile Club Basco-Bearnais and the first European Grand Prix of the season, the race at Pau also had the distinction of being the first Grand Prix to be held under the new Formula for 1961-64. The first practice session was on Saturday afternoon and there was plenty of activity, for drivers...

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...

Easter Race Meetings

Brands Hatch The first public race meeting held at Brands Hatch this year was on a damp and cold Easter Monday, the B.R.S.C.C.'s programme consisting of nine races, mostly for small sports-racing cars, GT cars and small saloons. The main race of the day was for the Oxfam Trophy, and was not very exciting—Tomlinson's Brabham won from Berrow-Johnston's 1,098-c.c. Lotus, which had led for eight of...

International Lombank

International Lombank Trophy Meeting Snetterton, April 14th THIS was the first event on British soil where entries had been made for Formula One cars using the Climax and B.R.M. V8 engines. Three cars were equipped with the new engines; Jimmy Clark's Team Lotus car, using a "bench engine," Stirling Moss with the latest U.D.T.-Laystall Lotus fitted with their recently delivered Climax unit, and...

Aintree "200"

The Aintree ''200" for Formula One cars received a predominantly British entry and in fact all the cars were British. This fact, added to the miserable northern weather, gave no incentive for Liverpudlians to leave their TV sets as the race was televised by the BBC and the admission prices at Aintree for a family could buy a TV licence. The works Lotus cars were still last year's models and...

15 minutes of fame -- Chevron B41

1979 Aurora AFX Championship, Zolder Romanticising about a second place, especially in a backwater national series, may be over the top, but Tiff Needell's runner-up spot in the Belgian Cup was the closest Derek Bennett's Chevron marque ever got to F1 glory. With a proper F1 car, that is, even if the B41 was just a test hack. "Basically it was Derek's project," recalls Bennett's right-hand man...

Innes Ireland drives brilliantly to win B.R.D.C International Trophy race for Lotus. Lotus also win F.J. race. Salvadori (Jaguar) vanquishes Moss in saloon car contest.

  The B.R.D.C. successfully put on a very full day's racing at Silverstone, but unfortunately a gloom had been cast over the meeting by the fatal accident to Harry Schell who, in the rain,  lost control of his Cooper at Abbey Curve and, hitting the marker wall as the car slid backwards, was thrown out and killed instantly. During the wet practice session Moss "lost" his Cooper as he accelerated...

Talk curve -- Historic motorsport insight -- Why Wilds' thing is racing

In 40 years of motorsport Mike Wilds has gone from DRW to BMW. He talks to Richard Heseltine It didn't really need saying but it was good to hear nonetheless. "I just love racing," says Mike Wilds. "It's still my passion after 40 years." In Britcar saloons, aboard Ian Lawson's BMW 320i for 2005, Wilds remains an active competitor and perhaps the most self-deprecating driver to ever sit in a...

International Lombank Trophy Meeting Snetterton, March 25th

THIS was the first meeting of the season which featured a race for the new 1 1/2-litre Formula 1, and a direct comparison with last year's 2 1/2-litre cars was possible as the Inter-Continental and Formula 2 cars were lumped together in one race; the 100-Mile Lombank Trophy. Team Lotus entered one 2 1/2-litre car for Ireland and a 1 1/2 for Jim Clark, Yeoman Credit entered two 1 1/2-litre Coopers...
