Modern Times

The rest of the Silverstone circus

Not content with the Grand Prix there was a fiesta of fun and sport for the spectators. The day opened with the 25-lap Sports-Car Race, in which Flockhart ran right away from the field in the Coombs' 2-litre Cooper-Monaco after Dickson's Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco had retired from the lead with transmission failure.

Modern times

Simon Taylor As far as victory was concerned, the German Grand Prix was finished at the first corner.

Rothmans World Championships Victory Race

Brands Hatch, October 24th. When the Mexican Grand Prix was cancelled Brands Hatch's idea of holding a Formula One race on the same date to bolster up the already heavy Motor Show 200 meeting programme seemed an excellent idea.

Individual Achievements 1957

A tribute to Ecurie Ecosse and Lotus Engineering by Denis Jenkinson A great deal is heard about personal triumphs, but probably the outstanding achievements by individuals during 1957 were the efforts of David Murray and Colin Chapman at Le Mans.
