Anne Hall

The only grandmother to have beaten Graham Hill in a straight fight around the Monaco GP circuit Two years ago a British driver won a historic rally in Holland, driving a Healey 3000. Not so unusual, perhaps; except that the driver in question is a petite white-haired grandmother who concedes only that the first digit of her age is a seven.

T.C. Harrison wins the 1952 R.A.C. Trials Championship

The 1952 R.A.C. Trials Championship was contested over a sporting course at Gandalo Camp, Catterick, in Yorkshire, by kind permission of the War Department.

Letters From Readers - Formative Years

Sir, After reading the interesting article on page 149, I began thinking of my "Formative years" which were during the early 1950s.

1971 British Grand Prix race report - Stewart and Tyrrell again

  Although the British Grand Prix does not have a long and venerable history, like the French Grand Prix, it does have the distinction of being held continuously since 1948, mostly at the Silverstone airfield circuit; with occasional digressions to Aintree and Brands Hatch.
