Sterling silver

To conclude our trilogy of significant French motor sport anniversaries, we rewind 60 years to the day that Mercedes-Benz returned to Grand Prix racing – and obliterated its rivals Writer Richard Williams The first outsider to catch sight of the new Silver Arrow hadn’t a clue what he was looking at.

Matters of moment

"It makes you feel sick, actually, the whole FIFA thing, the corruption at the top is nauseating. Sepp Blatter likewise has run it like a dictatorship for so long and he comes up with so much nonsense.” Good on Gary Lineker.

The racing historian, his fighter pilot son, and the Nazi…

One of the most cherished of all the volumes on my library shelves is a first-edition A Record of Motor Racing, published for the Royal Automobile Club by Reveirs Bros of Fetter Lane, London, in 1909.

Where the grassroots are greener

The 750 Motor Club, founded by our own Bill Boddy, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. It continues to thrive thanks to low-cost rules, diversity and – as we found out – good, clean fun Writer Ed Foster, photographer Mitch Pashavair Variety is, according to the dictionary, “the quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity or monotony”.

A nation divided

Behind the shock and awe of era-defining Silver Arrows domination, tension festered in the wake of the Führer’s decision to split state funding between Mercedes and the new Auto UnionWriter Doug Nye Pre-war motor racing was well reported by the British weeklies The Motor and The Autocar, with Tom Moore and friends in Motor Sport having more time to get it right.

Look who’s back

With the news that Ron Dennis has recaptured control of the McLaren F1 team – after five years away – it’s timely to recall just how he surrendered that position in the first place. The tale is a fascinating one of politics and betrayal December 2009, the morning after an awards night: the big news had been all about Jenson Button leaving the team for which he’d just won the world championship,...

by "Baladeur" The Editor of Motor Sport is an indulgent man. That much is obvious from the fact that he is prepared, month after month, to provide this skid-patch whereon his contributor "Baladeur" may perform his evolutions.
