Auto-Unions for Goodwood Festival - plus Schumacher?

The sight and sound of Auto-Union grand Prix cars, experienced by so few since they were built in the '30s, is to provide an extraordinary centrepiece to the fifth Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 20-22. Only the boldest drivers, such as the incomparably brave Bernd Rosemeyer and Hans von Stuck, could tame the 200mph monsters, and it is possible that von Stuck's son Hans ex-Audi racer, former...

Whitney Straight - Racing Driver

I find it astonishing that, whereas books have been written about so many racing drivers, from those of the pioneer days, through the interim periods, to the present day, nothing has appeared, so far as I can recollect, about Whitney Straight, or Earl Howe' for that matter. So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

THE Mont Ventoux lull Climb is one of the longest in the world, being 21 kilometres 600 metres in length. It starts at the pretty little village of Bedoin, at which point the road is 206 metres above sea level. The finish is at the Observatory, at a height of 1,689 metres. For six kilometres the road is fairly level and straight, but at St. Esteve the first bad corner is met, and the gradient...

V to C: Odds & Ends

The Journal of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club, now in its 40th year and with over 5,200 members, was full of pictures of machines competing in its varied events, including grass-track racing in the old style, and those of motorcycles at this year's Brooklands reunion including "Titch"Allen replica of the supercharged Triumph with which Wicksteed took the 500 cc lap-record.

Some Eyston Papers

A Glimpse Behind the Pre-War Record-Breaking Scene I have always had the greatest admiration for the late Capt. G. E. T. Eyston, OBE who although he achieved considerable success as a racing driver, made record-breaking his main activity (see Motor Sport for October, 1974). Some fascinating glimpses behind the scenes have come to light in the form of letters and papers left by Ernest Eldridge,...

35 Seconds

A provocative article, in which Gerald F. Hooke, basing his argument on the Shelsley Walsh Hill-Climb record, suggests that there must be a point at which sprint records must level out and become unbeatable.—Ed. After reading the reports and results of the last Shelsley Walsh meeting, my thoughts turned to Shelsleys of the past. The Davenport era, with "Spider" knocking a second off the record at...
