THE J.C.C. HIGH SPEED TRIAL

THE J.C.C. HIGH SPEED TRIAL BEST PERFORMANCE BY FRAZER-NASH B.M.W. ONLY a few days before the 11th J.C.C.

The Swedish Grand Prix

A Maserati Victory Kristianstad, August, 11th. Although the race in Sweden was entitled Grand Prix, it was for sports-cars and had the importance of counting towards the Manufacturers' Championship. Held on the same narrow bumpy circuit as in previous years, the race differed only in that this year it was for a period of six hours, instead of 1,000 kilometres, it being felt that a time race would...

B.M.C.R.C. EASTER MEETING.

B.M.C.R.C. EASTER MEETING. Good Entries but Mild Racing at Brooklands. THOUGH the above meeting attracted a very large A concourse of spectators, the afternoon's sport cannot be described as thrilling, for none of the events proved very exciting, though Horsman endeavoured to enliven the proceedings by bursting a tyre in one of the races. Dixon showed us some very pretty gear work, and his get-...

THE A.D.A.C. 1,000 KILOMETRES A Remarkable Race ADENAU, GERMANY, May 281h THE. r,000 kilometres race over 44 laps of the famous Nurburgring probably affords more people the opportunity to motor race and to try their hand at cornering, than any other motor racing event.

Pebble Beach

Track tests  You may know it better for golf and the concours d'elegance, but in the Fifties this lush resort introduced road racing to America's West Coast. By Colin Goodwin All we have to go on is a crumpled circuit map that Editor Fearnley pressed into my hand back in England. That and the knowledge that, each year from 1950 to '56, a race meeting was held at Pebble Beach. You enter the estate...

Brands Hatch International

The International meeting at Brands Hatch on August 29th gave the relatively small crowd some of the most exciting and some of the dullest racing seen at this tiny track since the same meeting last year. The main event of the day was the Kentish "100" Trophy for Formula 2 cars, which was divided into two 42-lap parts, the winner being decided on aggregate times. The vast majority of Formula 1...

THE TOP 100 DRIVERS, PART ONE...

THE TOP 100 DRIVERS, PART ONE.. SIR, It will always cause controversy and debate creating a list of any 'Greats'; racing drivers especially so. But however you look at it, Mark Hughes has some amazing whoopsies in his selection so far. Firstly, the list is incorrectly entitled Greatest Drivers.
