Hits and near-misses

From title shootouts to pitstop trauma, ex-arrows man David Lowe has seen it all. He spoke to Rob Widdows David ‘Dorky’ Lowe lived in the paddocks and pitlanes for more than 20 years. Why ‘Dorky’? “I can’t possibly tell you that,” laughs David, “not for printing in Motor Sport anyway.” Right, on with this month’s tale then. And we begin at Thruxton in Hampshire in October 1991. The British...

The Ulster Tourist Trophy

A Hard-Fought Victory for Mercedes-Benz  Belfast, September 17th. For the first time the Ulster T.T. became a straightforward, simple race, in which the first car to cover 84 laps of the Dundrod circuit would be adjudged the winner of the Tourist Trophy, presented by the R.A.C. In the past, complicated handicapping systems have invariably resulted in lack of public interest as well as lack of...

On the road with... Simon Arron

Dirty HurryLydden Hill, February 22: European Rallycross drivers gather for pre-season testing Lydden Circuit presents a Festival of Motor Sport: racing cars, bangers, karts and rallycross." I have the programme still, dated May 31, 1976. It was one of my earliest trips to Lydden — and the venue hasn't greatly changed during the subsequent 37 years. Back then the paddock was packed with Commer...

Tip-top tin-tops

Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm was spotted in the Dunlop hospitality paddock – the singer and actress was there to support her half-brother, BTCC racer Paul O’Neill. Fifth Gear...

The Formula One Scene

IT IS with some relief that I welcome in 1982, for it means that the 1981 season is really over and the sooner we forget it the better. In the past we have had the silly season, which is usually a brief moment at the height of the summer, but 1981 was a silly season from start to finish. It began with the absurd idea that the Formula One Constructors Association was more powerful that the...

Bert Hadley Bert Hadley died in July after a short illness, but a long and happy life. He started work at "The Austin" at Longbridge in 1926 where his interest in motors wangled him into the Experimental and Racing Dept. He was assigned to Murray Jamieson and the A7 racing team, and 50 years later, during the rebuild of the works racing Austins at Donington for Tom Wheatcroft, it was Bert who...

Motoring adventures of O.J.

Sir, Your continuing notes on the motoring adventures of O.J. reveal much fascinating detail of road conditions in those far off days. The novel mentioned in the July issue to which he took exception wad undoubtedly "The Fast Lady" by Keble Howard, published by Ernest Benn in 1925 and quite hard to find, despite going through at least 9 subsequent impressions. It concerns the adventures of the...

"Scuderia Impecuniosa"

 [It has long been a private theory of ours that many advantages attach to clubbing together over the matter of sports-car ownership. This is admirably borne out by the excellent article by Jack Cooper which follows. Incidentally, lightly as the article is written, most of us realise what a tremendous lot of hard work and enthusiasm must have been occasioned by the conversions mentioned, while...

Rob Walker's 3 1/2 - litre Delahaye

Rob Walker's 314-litre Delahaye THE DISTINCTIVE blue and white colours of R. R. C. Walker have been connected with motor racing since the early 1950s when Tony Rolt raced ERA/Delage and 2-litre Connaught for his team. Stirling Moss won both the 1960 and '61 Monaco Grand Prix races in an out-dated Lotus 18 and Siffert won the 1968 British Grand Prix in a very up-to-date Lotus-Cosworth 49. Walker...
