GOOD RACING AT DIEPPE. Leltoux (Bugatti) beats the official Molsheim Team. 2000 C.C. category won by Count Czaikowski, with Earl Howe (Delage) second.

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters ⁂ Sir, In reference to Harry Hawker's Mercedes-Sunbeam aero engined special — you say that after Hawker's death in 1921 the car disappeared. Well, not according to an article in the Riley Record of July 1934.

Nigel Roebuck's Legends

He used to be ill before a race.  No wonder James Hunt only started enjoying motorsport once he stopped driving... After who knows how many years, I went back to Brands Hatch in late September for the inaugural A1GP race, and as I walked into the paddock I was struck overwhelmingly by thoughts of James Hunt, who had some of his greatest days there. Man and place are inextricably woven in my mind...

Cars in books

Cars in books Cecil Lewis, still writing at 95, but perhaps best-remembered for his wonderful account of flying with the RFC during the First World War (Sagittarius Rising, published in 1936 by Peter Davies and commended by no less a person than Bernard Shaw, so that it went into at least six impressions), caused me and the LeaFrancis OC some problems when, in a later book Farewell To Wings (...

The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

Chauffeur's Corner THE SON of a Wiltshire blacksmith, Mr. R. J. Wells — he likes to be called James — left school at 15 and entered the service of Sir Ernest Wills, of tobacco fame, as a gardener. The estate-gardens at Littlecote, near Hungerford, were the finest in the south of England, and you can still visit them today.

The South African Grand Prix

Scheckter is the new national hero, Kyalami, March 1st The six-week break between the Brazilian Grand Prix at the end of January and the South African Grand Prix on March 1st provided welcome relief for most Grand Prix teams, giving them time to reflect on their own individual situation after the first two events of the season and enabling several of them either to complete new machinery or try...
