Individual Achievements 1957

A tribute to Ecurie Ecosse and Lotus Engineering by Denis Jenkinson A great deal is heard about personal triumphs, but probably the outstanding achievements by individuals during 1957 were the efforts of David Murray and Colin Chapman at Le Mans. I use the term individual loosely, for both gentlemen are the first to point out that their successes at Le Mans were entirely due to the work of a team...

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...

Looking back, with Cliff Allison

Of the Englishmen who drove Ferrari's classic Formula 1, front-engined Dino 246 machines, after 1958 World Champion Mike Hawthorn, of course, most of our readers will recall Peter Collins and Tony Brooks.

Ferrari sent two of the 1962 rear-engined cars fitted with last year's 120-deg engine for Phil Hill and Giancarlo Baghetti, Lotus brought the "chicken coup" V8 car which won at...

455 - not out

As long as the fascination remains, one of F1's longest-serving reporters has no plans to dose his word processor's lid Age, experience and undimmed enthusiasm have endowed him with a deep perspective of the sport and its proponents that, while often controversial, has frequently helped him to strip away the veneer of hyperbole so often associated with new trends and fads.

Looking back with Peter Ashdown

Last November we received a package containing photographs and negatives taken at the Borehamwood race meetings in the early Fifties. A reader had been sorting out his late father's effects, had come across the pictures and had kindly sent them in the hope that we might file them and find some use for them.

Best of British!

In a month when the frenzy of patriotism over Britain's Le Mans challenge reaches a peak, we reflect on Jaguar's last victory at the Sarthe thirty-one years ago. 1957 was a memorable year in many respects for the British at Le Mans. In a year when the Automobile Club de l'Ouest was celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and lap and distance-records were shattered in all classes, the coveted Index...
