slip streams

"Airplanes." THE sameness in layout, appearance and performance which has become characteristic of the American motor car, so that only by close scrutiny of the radiator badge or hub cap can one now ascertain the make, is not met with in aircraft of the U.S.A. On the contrary, designs are extremely varied, and often original, which is scarcely what one might expect from a country where rigid...

A remarkable Sunbeam revelation

How Louis Coatalen copied a 1913 Coupe de L'Auto Peugeot for his 1914 TT cars It is accepted that the Sunbeam that won the 1914 TT, driven by Kenelm Lee Guinness, was a direct crib of the famous and successful 1913 Coupe de L'Auto Peugeot. Louis Coatalen, who had come to the Sunbeam Motor Company in Wolverhampton from Hillman in 1909, had shown himself to be extremely keen on motor racing. He had...

Lunch with... David Hobbs

The results didn't always come his way, but over three decades this expat Brit enjoyed the sort of variety in his racing career that today's F1 stars can only dream about, By Simon Taylor David Hobbs is 71 now, still the quintessential Englishman with the deadpan humour that stayed with him through a 30-year-plus racing career.

Goodwood in the Wet

THE July B.A.R.C. Members' Meeting at Goodwood opened in torrential rain, through which splashed nine 1,100-c.c. sports cars. Only de Selincourt (Lola) felt like trying to race and he averaged only 51.87 m.p.h. in winning from Howard (Lotus Eleven Series 2). although his best lap was surely an aquatic record 62.7 m.p.h. The next three Lotus drivers were actually a lap in arrears as de Selincourt...

The 23rd BARC 23rd Members' Meeting

The BARC staged its third Members' Sports-Car Race Meeting of 1956 at Goodwood last month. The races, contested in dull but dry weather, were not especially exciting, possibly because a new rule was in force whereby any driver who spun was disqualified. Only PH Ashdown (Lotus-Climax) suffered under this ruling, when he lost control at St Mary's Corner on the last lap of the third race. Another...

First Round of the 1959 Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy Contest/National Prescott Hill-Climb

This took place at the 34th B.A.R.C. Members' Meeting at Goodwood on April 25th, on the usual points system. A splendid entry of 125 cars had been received but, alas, summer had taken place the day before and on race day rain flooded down, driven by a high wind into a lashing fury. Under the circumstances it is a splendid tribute to their enthusiasm that spectators almost filled the stands and...

Scandal for 'Mr Brooklands'

Sir Alastair Miller made his name as an enthusiastic Brooklands racer, but in 1922 his private affairs reached the newspapers. Bill Boddy explains why When I wrote about Sir Alastair Miller some time ago, I described him as 'Mr Brooklands', based on the fact that he had raced at the Surrey Track regularly from 1912 until 1931, competing pre-war on big Matchless and Martin motorcycles. He was...
