1959 British Grand Prix race report - A walk-over for British cars

  As now seems traditional the British Grand Prix never rests in the same place two years running, and this time it was the B.A.R.C. who organised the race, using Mrs Topham's Aintree Stadium for the venue. The entry was a strange one for a World Championship meeting, for the Ferrari team were prevented from appearing by labour disputes in Italy, though the Scuderia Centro-Sud managed to get over...

Gardner's Question Time

Paul Fearnley fulfils a long-standing ambition to meet a man whose achievements bely his legendary status Jeez, you know me better than I do." Frank Gardner is a bit vague over facts and figures. He's every right to be. He has been involved in motorsport for over 40 years as a mechanic, a driver, an engineer and a team manager. Only now he is throttling back, although his idea of 'Dunworkin',...

Nigel Roebuck's legends

The sad thing is, winning Indy – the driving part of it – is out of all proportion to the fame and fortune The last time I went to the Indianapolis 500, in 1993, there was a particularly popular T-shirt in evidence. Relatively plain on the front, the legend on the back read, ‘And Mario’s slowing down’. Spectators at the Speedway had heard veteran track announcer Tom Carnegie say those words many...

A whole bunch of trouble

Pity the poor historian… Even the best documented cars can throw up confusion and doubt when it comes to restoring them Writer Doug Nye For me, a whole bunch of trouble began on December 7 last. Rob Hall of Hall & Hall in Bourne, Lincolnshire, had asked me to inspect the Lotus-Climax 25 which had spent the past 40 years or so in the Donington Collection. For me it was an old friend (I thought...

PICTORIAL REVIEW 24-Hour Race Le Mans 1,000 K's Nurburgring Belgian Grand Prix Brands Hatch Dutch Grand Prix BRITAIN DOMINATED.—Except for the first mile of the first lop when Graham Hill shot into the lead, the Ferraris dominated the Belgian Grand Prix which was held on the fast Spa-Francorcharnps circuit.

Looking back with Peter Arundell

On June 2nd Ivan Capelli won the Monaco GP support race and so, according to motor racing lore, is likely to be seen one day in F1. On June 7th the man who dominated the race in the early sixties left England to start a new business and a new life in the States. A driver of brilliant gifts, he graduated to F1, strung together a series of placings, survived a near-fatal accident, fought his way...

After the rain had come

There are some Formula One Grand Prix events that have the happy knack of establishing themselves from the word "go". The event at the Autodromo Dino Ferrari at Imola is one such, another is the Austrian Grand Prix on the majestic Osterreichring. Others like the Belgian Grand Prix at Nivelles, the Spanish Grand Prix at Jarama, the French Grand Prix at Dijon all seem the fall flat on their faces...

Splendid finale at Oulton Park

Moss Proves He is The Master THE final Oulton Park Meeting of the year was in every way a great success, with exciting racing, in delightful weather, before a big crowd. The Cheshire-C.C. put on the last 2 1/2-litre F.1 race to be held in England before the new 1 1/2-litre Formula comes into operation, and so interesting was this race that Oulton Park should be several steps nearer being...

American Revolution

The arrival of Lotus at Indy turned the Brickyard on its head. Jabby Crombac, who slept on Jim Clark's floor at the track's Holiday Inn, recalls the trials and tribulations of F1's top team as it strove to win the world's biggest race Colin Chapman, to say the least, wasn't impressed by his first visit to Indianapolis, in 1962— even though Dan Gurney had paid his airfare. To Colin's eye, the...

Late in the afternoon of November 22 1963, I was stopped by a policeman and reprimanded for riding my bike at dusk without lights. I carried on to school, chastened, where I found my housemaster looking extremely preoccupied. My first thought was that the copper had reported me but it was rather more significant than that. "Two hours ago," he said, "President Kennedy was assassinated." Thus, that...
