Boxing Day Brands Hatch (December 26th)

The opening event of the day for G.T. cars gave another victory to Graham Warner's Lotus Elite from Chris Lawrence's more accelerative Morgan Plus 4 which held the lead for a couple of laps. Cohn Hextall moved up into third place in his Thunderbolt while Pat Moss in her first real motor race (although some rallies appear to be thinly disguised races) kept the Sprinzel-Sprite in eighth place. The...

Lunch with... Jack Sears

The epitome of the Gentleman Racer, Jack Sears also possessed a steely edge that he put to good use on the race track – but he always saw himself as a team playerBy Simon Taylor Nowadays “Professional” tends to mean doing something properly, and “Amateur” can mean the opposite.

Lola's street carnival is a hit

Lola ended a year of 50th anniversary celebrations with a street demonstration through its home town of Huntingdon on a sunny Sunday afternoon in October – and the event certainly caught the imagination of locals. The racing car constructor, which has been based in the Cambridgeshire town since 1970, estimated that 10,000 people turned out for the display, and from what Motor Sport could see that...
