The new series III Jaguars and Daimlers

Although it is eleven years since the XJ6 was introduced, the Jaguar/Daimler model range remains unsurpassed in its combination of ride comfort, suppression of road, suspension and wind noise and roadholding. How could Bob Knight and his team of engineers improve on this near perfection? The answer has been to make the coachwork itself more refined whilst leaving the chassis practically unchanged...

The Brooklands Re-Union (June 29th)

Following in the tyre tracks of Rex Judd, whose splendid idea the Brooklands Re-Union of Weybridge racing motorcyclists was, Dudley Gahagan and William Boddy, Editor of Motor Sport, decided that so many people—drivers, mechanics, journalists and spectators—have such happy memories of the old Motor Course that the car side, too, should have its Re-Union. This duly took place at the "Hand &...

A critical look at the Lotus Elan

Colin Chapman's Lotus project has been a significant success story, from humble but enthusiastic beginnings up to World Championship Grand Prix winning and Indianapolis-victorious level. This is attributable to Chapman's genius and drive, allied to the fact that he was a genuine motoring enthusiast before he became a business tycoon—and still is. So far as the sort of Lotus cars you can buy and...

Back in the Saddle

When Lotus made their first tentative Formula One steps, Cliff Allison and the Nimble 12 scored the first points for this famous team. After 43 years apart, we reunited them. David Malsher reports Blip, blip, buzz — pause — clunk, sputter, sputter. This Lotus `queerbox' is in perfect condition. But it's still a sod. Next lap, into the first corner, there's a confident blip, blip, and a creamy...

Formula One scene: Engine design trends (part one)

Engines a la mode Like the shape of our shoes and the cut of our clothes, engine design is subject to fashion. After years of "conventional" straight fours, V6s, V8s and V12s, the Grand Prix world is rushing to develop engines of unusual design. V10s and broad-arrow 12-cylinder power-units are now all the rage. But historian David Hebb argues that such apparently novel configurations have many...

The Jaguar XJ-S

A New Breed of Cat A new Jaguar model is a rarity, every one a landmark in motoring history. Styling has met with world-wide acclaim, performance has been something for other manufacturers to aim at. In performance and road manners the new XJ-S, a 154 m.p.h. sports coupe powered by the fuel-injected version of Jaguar's V12 engine and using modified XJ saloon suspension, represents yet another...

Rally review

Swedish Rally Scandinavian winters being what they are, long and cold, it's almost inconceivable that February's Swedish Rally should have taken place on anything but roads plentifully covered by ice and snow. Sweden becomes white for months every winter, and remembering that the Monte-Carlo Rally has snow only on some parts of its route, the Swedish Rally is the only event in the World...

LAST month we made reference to the unique experience of a Nottingham enthusiast who was rumoured literally to have bought an E.R.A. in a cycle shop. This has resulted in a very interesting letter from Flight-Lieut. Harry Mundy, R.A.F.V.R., who was with English Racing Automobiles. Mundy, who is a friend of John Cooper, throws some light on the mysterious 4 and 5-litre E.R.A. engines which our...

He won 25 grands prix and the Indy 500, but, as Paul Fearnley discovers, it was Jim Clark's exploits away from Formula 1 — whether hustling stock cars or rallying a Lotus-Cortina — which truly showcased the Scot's versatility A staid Sunbeam saloon, a quirky DKW two-stroker, a steadfast TR3, a nimble Porsche 356 coupé, a borrowed Anglia and an eye-opening, 100mph-lap D-type Jag; rallies (from...

The Gray Brothers

The Gray Brothers Many thanks for publishing the photograph and my epistle relative to the Gray brothers and the LSR Railton car. For the sake of the historians I would like to correct one mistake of mine — the fifth member of the Gray team was Frank Newbold (not Newcombe). In adding to my original copy surely W.B. was wrong in saying that they had a works behind "The Ship" in Byfleet; my memory...
