The racing at Rouen

ROUEN, FRANCE, July 10th AT the Reims meeting the Formula Two and Formula Three races had been the supporting events, but at Rouen they were the main attractions and as support the V.S.C.C., in conjunction with their French equivalent, organised an Historic Car Race, which to many eyes was the major attraction! The Formula Two race was the third round in the French series, further events being...

Canadian Grand Prix

Stewart back on top Mosport, Canada, September 24th. Jackie Stewart and Elf-Team Tyrrell will remember 1972 as a year of mixed fortunes. Stewart's season started off well enough with a win in Argentina but after that things started to go wrong. There was the ulcer that put him out of the Belgian Grand Prix and, prior to that, he had unaccountably spun at the Spanish GP which he now says was...

10th United States Grands Prix

Watkins Glen, N.Y., October 6th Two weeks after the Canadian Grand Prix held in the ski country north of Montreal the Grand Prix "circus" moved south-west into the holiday area of Upper New York State. The village of Watkins Glen gave open-armed welcome to all race-goers, as it does every year, and, as usual, organisation was of the high standard set in previous years. The technical building had...

Fragments on Forgotten Makes No. 18 : The Pilgrim

SOME interest has been displayed from time to time in "Vintage Postbag" anent the Pilgrim car, so I was glad to be able to visit Mr. E. L. Armitage, whose father, Mr. Edward Armitage, founded the firm of the Pilgrim's Way Motor Company in 1905, and Mr. V. C. Leaper, who was a draughtsman with this firm from 1910 until 1922, in order to glean some details. The Company took its name from the...

Dire straights...

…and the corners weren’t much better either. While we like to celebrate the great race tracks in history, some haven’t always met with universal approval. Adam Cooper recalls the stinkers A few months ago I was heading along the Brussels ring road when an exit sign caught my attention. It bore a name with special historical significance, and it wasn't Waterloo. No, this was the way to Nivelles,...

Swedish Grand Prix

A nice clean race Anderstorp, Sweden, 7une 17th There are some people who think that Grand Prix racing should be made more uniform than it is and bemoan the fact that all circuits do not have aircraft landing strips and motels incorporated in their design. Fortunately, Europe is not uniform in everything and each country still possesses some variation, so that although the cast for a Grand Prix...

Three Formula Two Races

Rouen (July 9th) Most of the star Grand Prix drivers were taking part in this race, except for Gurney who does not approve of top league drivers playing in a lesser league, so that Ferrari's first sortie with his new car and new driver had little chance of shining. This was Jonathan Williams' first Formula Two race in any car, so he was left rather breathless by Clark, Hill, Stewart, Brabham,...

Indianapolis 500-mile race

(May 30th/31st) This year Indianapolis returned to normal, for the U.S.A.C. oval track racers seemed to have learnt how to build and drive the rear-engined "funny cars" introduced by Brabham and Lotus. The result was that qualifying speeds were impressively high and, apart from Gurney in one of his Eagle-Ford V8 cars, the Grand Prix-type drivers were relegated to the back of the grid amongst the...

The Grand Prix of France

A shake-up for Formula One Castellet, July 1st. As the French started their summer holiday season and headed for the Mediterranean coast and the beaches, the Grand Prix circus headed for the Mediterranean coast and the Paul Ricard circuit, and the only time the two parties came together was on the crowded Autoroute going south and on the terribly slow road from Aix-en-Provence to Toulon, off...
