A meeting was held in London on August 15th at which the Brooklands Society was formed, on the lines and with the aims and objects outlined on page 796 of the September issue of Motor Sport. By mid-November 55 Members and 124 Associates had joined, subscription-revenue totalling £72. This is a most encouraging start especially as an intense membership drive has not been instituted, the present...

East African Safari

Easter in Kenya means Safari-time. The East African Safari Rally; the name itself chills spines as you imagine man and machine pitting skills against the ragged car-eating terrains of Tanzania and Kenya or the precipitous escarpments of the mighty mountain Kilimanjaro. All very romantic really, but in fact the myths that surround this great event are slowly being unravelled. To sum it up, the one...

Lunch with Paddy Hopkirk

The PM, Brucie, The Beatles… They all wanted to know this Belfast boy after his Mini win in Monte Carlo. But that was just one of his many successes In the UK at least, the frenzy surrounding Lewis Hamilton’s World Championship win last November spread far beyond Formula 1’s normal audience, and for a few days his name was on the lips of politicians, comedians, media pundits, even the priest on...

Rally review

To be truthful, there is nothing else quite like it in the whole wide world except perhaps its two-wheeled forerunner. The event is, of course, the Tour de France Automobile or, more simply, the Tour Auto, which although it is classified this year by the F.I.A. as a race meeting is still closer to a rally than, say, the 24-hour race at Le Mans, which is why it is being considered in this column....

Rally Pilots Association

Two significant meetings took place in York at the time of the RAC Rally; between them they marked the formation of what has been called the Rally Pilots' Association— nothing to do with aviation. I hasten to say, simply the the of a common Continental word which means Competition driver. For a number of years many professional and semiprofessional drivers have felt that there was no avenue...

Le Tour de Corse

The birthplace of Napoleon is a rally driver's nirvana. a wide-eyed John Davenport remembers some 'on-the-edge' motoring in Corsica They could have called it anything: The 24 Hours of Corsica, The 1000 Miles of the Mediterranean or even the Targa Napoleon. Instead they called it The Tour of Corsica, a title straight out of a Saga Holidays brochure. Admittedly there was a sub-title, Rallye des Dix...

Records.—Once upon a time record-breaking was a very prominent activity in the racing world, but in recent years it has become a dying art. So it is interesting that Italy and Germany have been the scene this year of attacks on c.i. records by Ford and Opel. It wasn't until 1936 that records by diesel-engined cars were officially recognied, although a Cummins-Diesel had covered a flying mile at...

Tilting at windmills

The Tulip Rally aspired to greatness in the 1950s and 1960s but was held back by lack of finance ans a failure to embrace modern methods. As John Davenport explains Thanks to Max Bygraves and his song Tiptoe Through the Tulips, it's not difficult for people who know little about rallying to surmise that the Tulip Rally is something to do with Holland. And, knowing that country is as well endowed...
