A critical look at the Lotus Elan

Colin Chapman's Lotus project has been a significant success story, from humble but enthusiastic beginnings up to World Championship Grand Prix winning and Indianapolis-victorious level. This is attributable to Chapman's genius and drive, allied to the fact that he was a genuine motoring enthusiast before he became a business tycoon—and still is. So far as the sort of Lotus cars you can buy and...

Letters from Readers.

N.B. —Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and "Motor Sport" does not necessarily associate itself with them.— Ed An appalling prospect. Sir, I commend you for your stand against bureaucratic control of the motorist. As an American motor enthusiast I have watched, through the window of your editorial and correspondence pages, the government of your country steadily approach the "...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1965 This annual review is intended as a refresher course for those readers who are interested in the good, bad, and indifferent aspects of the cars that came to us for road-test during the past twelve months. Consequently, it will not be a resume of the Good Life, as provided by D.S.J. last month. Nor do I claim to have toiled so hard at my motoring...

The A.D.A.C. 1,000 Kilometers

Adenau, Germany, May 27th. THE A.D.A.C. 1,000-kilometre race, run over 44 laps of the famous Nurburgring, is fast developing a character of its own, in as much as it is becoming a super International Clubman's event, or stepping-stone for the amateur driver of sports or G.T. cars to branch out into the world of serious motor racing. With its 22 kilometres to the lap the Nurburgring can easily...

Moonlighting

He won 25 grands prix and the Indy 500, but, as Paul Fearnley discovers, it was Jim Clark's exploits away from Formula 1 — whether hustling stock cars or rallying a Lotus-Cortina — which truly showcased the Scot's versatility A staid Sunbeam saloon, a quirky DKW two-stroker, a steadfast TR3, a nimble Porsche 356 coupé, a borrowed Anglia and an eye-opening, 100mph-lap D-type Jag; rallies (from...

A.D.A.C. 1000 Kilometers, Nurburgring

Ferrari Win but Lola-Ford Fast Adenau, May 31st. The annual 1,000-kilometre race held on the Nurburgring this year celebrated its 10th anniversary, and did so with the largest entry imaginable, ranging from works Prototype Ferraris down to a 700-c.c. B.M.W. Special. While the race itself is of vast proportions, starting at 9 a.m, and going on until well after 4 p.m., during which time the leader...

Oulton Park National Meeting (April 8th)

The non-appearance of Jim Clark's Lotus 30 and Roy Salvadori's Cooper-Maserati robbed this B.A.R.C. meeting of much of its interest, for the duel between the 4.7-litre V8 Ford-engined Lotus and the 5-litre V8 Maserati-engined Cooper could have been quite something. As it was both cars were still being worked on at their respective factories. These two cars were intended for the main race of the...

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...

Lunch with... David Hobbs

The results didn't always come his way, but over three decades this expat Brit enjoyed the sort of variety in his racing career that today's F1 stars can only dream about, By Simon Taylor David Hobbs is 71 now, still the quintessential Englishman with the deadpan humour that stayed with him through a 30-year-plus racing career. By his own assessment, misfortune and missed opportunities meant he...

The R.A.C. Rally

Tough 2,000 mile event around Great Britain ruined by protests. This year's R.A.C. International Rally started from Blackpool with 131 competitors (15 non-starters). A feature of the event was the pains taken by the R.A.C. to avoid interference with the public as the cars passed through built-up areas, but, on the other hand, the crews had to spend three nights out of bed, starting at Blackpool...
