Road to Rouen

By starting the 1968 French GP in a works Honda, 40-year-old Jo Schlesser realised his life's ambition. But a mere two laps later the dream turned into a nightmare. Adam Cooper pays tribute to a gentleman driver One of the most fascinating scenes in the film Grand Prix is the GPDA meeting at Spa, in which actors James Gamer, Yves Montand and Antonio Sabato mix it with a dozen real stars — half...

The parade of Anciens Pilotes

The idea of having a demonstration of historic racing cars driven by members of the Club Internationale des Anciens Pilotes des Grands Prix at Silverstone on July 15th, before the start of the British G.P. was an excellent idea, for which credit must go to the C.J.A.P. and the B.R.D.C. But such inaccurate accounts: have been published about it, due to confusion over who drove what car and so on,...

Springtime activities in the workshops

As Easter approaches, and Goodwood opens the international racing calendar as far as Britain is concerned, there is more and more work going on in the various racing departments, and new cars begin to near completion while old ones are being finished off after a winter overhaul. In the middle of March, in time to get these words into print on April 1st, we made a visit to some of the premises...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

A REVIEW Le Mans (Sarthe), June 23rd. This year the Le Mans 24-hour race returned to its normal status of counting towards the Manufacturers' Championship for Sports Cars, because the Automobile Club de l'Ouest wisely decided to drop the limitations on fuel consumption and engine capacity, that they imposed last year. As a result all the important manufacturers entered strong teams of cars and...

IVTH GRAND PRIX DE ROUEN ROUEN. Sunday, June 28th. WITH the Grand Prix de rA.c.F. returning to Reims, the Automobile Club de Normand had to think of some new innovation to justify the enormous expenditure of last year when the Rouen-Les Essarts circuit was entirely rebuilt, to become one of the best in France. Feeling that a simple Formula II circuit race would seem feeble, the Club opened the...

Looking back with Phil Hill

One of the most regular features of the past twenty-five years' Grand Prix racing has been the periodic rise and fall of Ferrari fortunes, peaks of success being relatively few and far between since the advent of the 1-1/2 -litre unsupercharged Formula One at the start of 1961. With the Italian team currently enjoying a welcome renaissance with its flat 12-cylinder 312B3s, a visit to Dijon-...

Ferrari's day in the desert

New enthusiasts often react with surprise as they begin to grasp the enormous breadth of motor racing which went on through the classic period of the 1950s. The World Championship Formula 1 and sports car scenes are well understood – well served by so many books, magazine features and websites – but there’s an even richer background tapestry of long-forgotten and obscure races run at all kinds of...

The 250F Maserati - Part one

Last year there was a race for Maserati cars only, at a VSCC meeting at Silverstone, with a good turn-out of pre-war cars from Bologna and post-war cars from Modena, but unfortunately the VSCC itself and many reporters got into a terrible muddle over the 250F entries. This was not surprising as there are numerous fake 250F type Maseratis about the place and some of them are masquerading under...

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...

XVI Grand Prix De Pau

Ascari Robbed of a Certain Victory. Pau, April 11th. The interest at Pau was not so much the cars that were present, but those that were not, and the biggest surprise was the complete absence of the Ferrari team cars and drivers. After the complete fiasco the Maranello team suffered at Turin they had returned home unhappy about the way the Lancias were going and with much work to do. The entry...
