2014 Goodwood Revival

You always know what you’re going to get at the Goodwood Revival. The set dressing, the clothes, the cars, the smiling drivers… it’s the same every time. So how come it still manages to surprise and make its captivated audience, many of whom return year after year, gawp and gasp in amazement? We guess some things are never tiresome. Each Revival leaves defining images that linger, then blend in...

From the archives with... Doug Nye

Phoenix in waiting A distinctive 1960s racer is coming under the hammer, but will need lashings of TLC I will declare an interest. I offer consultancy advice (often justifiably ignored) to auctioneer Bonhams, whose Goodwood Festival of Speed sale includes some real rarities. Among these are the (hopefully) still restorable remains of a uniquely significant ex-Jim Clark sports-racing car – the...

Maserati's 250F

The magic and the myth The English dictionary which graces the shelf in Motor Sport's editorial offices gives the definition of the word classical as "of the first class, of allowed excellence". It's an adjective which has frequently been used to describe the 2 1/2-litre Formula One Maserati 250F ever since the car was racing as a contemporary Grand Prix challenger. More has been written about...

B. Bira: Siam's prince of racing

Prince Bira was much more than a royal with a penchant for racing: he was a gifted driver, a talented artist and the inspiration to a generation of privateer racers. By Robert Edwards To passers-by at Baron's Court underground station, two days before Christmas 1985, he was just an elderly man, but by his appearance not a local one. That he had seen better days was clear; that he had died from a...

The 43rd Grand Prix De L'A.C.F.

Fangio the Master Rouen, July 7th. After trying for many years, the Automobile Club Normand at last succeeded in wresting the French Grand Prix away from the Automobile Club du Champagne, and this year's race was held on the wonderful natural road circuit of Rouen-Les Essarts. This circuit is without question the finest in France and approaches the Spa circuit for the ultimate in Grand Prix...

Letters from Readers

Fascinating restorer stories Sir, I am writing to thank you for your splendid series 'The Classic Restorers'. I began following vintage and classic racing some 20 years ago when I went to live near Silverstone, and became so fascinated with the machinery that I often spend a whole meeting wandering around the paddock examining the cam rather than watching the racing. I often used to wonder who...

Bob Gerard looks back

The history of the ERA in pre-war "voiturette" races has been well chronicled and widely acknowledged as one of the first tentative steps which led towards the development of Britain's post-war dominance in international motor racing. But with the immediate years following the war, the ERA was campaigned with vigour by many private entrants against the measurably more powerful and up-to-date...

The Castle Combe National Race Meeting

Bob Gerard's Cooper-Bristol Beats Flockhart (B.R.M.) at Pleasant Meeting on August 28th. Two Class Records Fall. At the risk of being accused of repetition, I will say that the Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. race meetings at Castle Combe circuit, adjacent to the picturesque Wiltshire village of Castle Combe, near Chippenham, are run effectively, yet with a minimum of "red tape." So it was on August...

At the 1954 Motor Show was a stand on which was displayed two fibreglass-bodied Kieft Climax 1100 cc sports cars, one in racing trim, one in road trim, and an ambitious flat-four air-cooled engine. The history of the engine was covered in November's issue of Motor Sport, for it was the Kieft-modified AJB with Norton cylinder heads. The reason why the cars were at the Motor Show was because the...
