Obituary – Tony Fall

At the age of 67, Tony was doing what he enjoyed most, working with fellow rally men as an official on the East African Safari when, at the night halt in Arusha, he passed away in his sleep. His rally career started while he was...

Called to account Mark Hughes’ April column sums up brilliantly what us long-term addicts could not have done so pointedly. That having been said, we the spectators/paying public, have long been sacrificed to the Gods of the almighty dollar, as he states so well, but good luck getting any of them to react.

Only the necessity to close last month's issue for press before results could be obtained has reduced the amount of coverage Motor Sport would otherwise give to this...

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933 Alpine In recent times many retrospectives of former important competition events have been held, for classic and other cars. They are commendable in that they provide good sport with a flavour of the past for those who take part, and perhaps they enhance the value of some of the cars so publicised. But none of them, for a variety of rather obvious reasons, can quite...

Ian Appleyard Ian Appleyard BSc, arguably Britain's most successful international rally driver of the early post-war years, died in early June. An Olympic skier, he had an uncanny affinity for the Alps and scored his most famous successes in the Alpine Rally, driving initially SS Jaguar 100s and later his famous semi-works XK120 registered NUB 120. In 1949 he put up best performance in the Alpine...

Jaguar XK120

The quintessential Jaguar – it looked the part, it had the performance and it spawned the C and D-types. Needless to say, the XK120’s legacy lives on By Richard Heseltine Time spent away from racing clearly hasn’t blunted his competitive edge. National racing legend Dave Coyne, the man who yo-yoed between junior formulae for much of the 1980s, was a surprise entry for July’s Silverstone Classic....
