THE INTER-'VARSITY HILL CLIMB. Good Displays by Amateur Car and Motor Cycle Competitors at Henley Park. THE organisers of this event, which is perhaps the premier amateur motoring event held in this country, were doubly fortunate this year, first in obtaining the use of an excellent course on private ground at a time when such courses are practically unknown, and secondly, being favoured with...

Kimi's move to Ferrari recalls other feisty driver pairings; Shell film rekindles the bravery that the old Spa demanded, and Brundle goes back to the Fifties with boot polish For the majority of Formula 1 fans, I like to think, that fortnight encompassing Spa and Monza remains the core of any Grand Prix season. As long-time enthusiast Clive James remarked in his column in the Telegraph, “When the...

MOTORING SPORTSMEN (NEW SERIES) VII. WHITNEY STRAIGHT THIS series so far has been devoted to drivers of mature years who have piled up a long experience at the wheel. Now it is the turn of the younger generation, and Mr. Straight's successes of the past season fully justify our choice.

BROOKLANDS EASTER MEETING FINE PERFORMANCES ACHIEVED UNDER DIFFICULT CONDITIONS AUSTIN'S HIGH SPEED ALTHOUGH this was not the first event held this year at the track, one never feels that the season has really started till the B.A.R.C. have held their first meeting, which in this case had the added attraction of being the Easter event, and drew a very good atten dance. The weather over the whole...

Rolls-Royce claims

Some full-page advertisements have been placed in The Times newspaper by Rolls-Royce Motors Ltd. and anything Rolls-Royce does is news, naturally. So far, however, the only comment on these rather unusual advertisements has been in The Times. The first of these layouts seems to have broken out on January 18th last, against the heading "You know all those stories about Rolls-Royce?", after which...

Book reviews

Alfa RomeoFrom 1910 to 2010Maurizio Tabucchi A century is a large slice of history to fit in a book, especially when it is such a packed century as the story of Italy’s greatest marque. (Other contenders are available.)

Turkish Spitfires

Sir I was absolutely fascinated by Mr Hamilton's account of his Le Mans exploits in C-type Jaguars (July 1990).

Les Vingt Quarte Heures du Mans, 1956

Scotland wins economy race Le Mans (Sarthe) July 29th.

This meant that it had to stand on its own and rely on tradition for its success. Every year the Le Mans race is controlled by hundreds of...

1934 RACING CARS 4.-THE M.G. MAGNETTE, K.3.
