48th French Grand Prix

A Race of Surprises Rouen-Les Essarts, July 8th. Every five years the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. leaves the Reims circuit and is held at Rouen-Les-Essarts, having done so in 1952, 1957 and now in 1962. The Rouen circuit does not have the amenities nor the grandness and atmosphere of Reims, but the circuit itself is one of the best in Europe from the point of view of driving and spectating. All the...

Nigel Roebuck's Legends

In November 1975 motorsport lost one of its leading lights. But the 'plane crash that claimed Graham Hill also extinguished the life of a likely World Champion of the future: Tony Brise Appropriately, it is November 29 as I write, and — just as in 1975 — there is a thick crust of frost on the windscreen of my car. That evening, 30 years ago, there was an item on the late news about a light-...

Aintree "200"

The Aintree ''200" for Formula One cars received a predominantly British entry and in fact all the cars were British. This fact, added to the miserable northern weather, gave no incentive for Liverpudlians to leave their TV sets as the race was televised by the BBC and the admission prices at Aintree for a family could buy a TV licence. The works Lotus cars were still last year's models and...

Star-spangled spanner

As the long trip by boat from his native Cape Town came to an end at Southampton in the damp spring of 1961, one of Grand Prix racing's most celebrated living mechanics admits to having felt gripping nervousness. At the tender age of 23, Cedric Selzer was on his way to Team Lotus, charged with the awesome responsibility of a new job: working under the command of Jim Endreweit and David Lazenby on...

American Comment

The Great Turbine Controversy finally came to a head last month when practice opened for the 52nd Indianapolis 500. Although this was necessarily written before the qualification attempts or the race itself, the first two weeks produced more than their usual share of extraordinary and, unfortunately, tragic events. The controversy began, of course, when Parnelli Jones drove the S.T.P. Turbocar to...

XX Grand Prix of Monaco

A race of decimation Monte Carlo, June 3rd. Due to a shuffling of the calendar this year the Monaco G.P. was not the first Grande Epreuve, the Dutch G.P. already having been held, so that everyone arrived in the Principality ready to do battle, this year's form having been indicated at Zandvoort, where B.R.M. ran away with the race. Once again the entry of 16 cars for the Monaco race was decided...

4th United States Grand Prix

Clark Wins at Record Speed WATKINS GLEN, October 7th THE success of last year's race guaranteed the return this year to Watkins Glen of the Fourth U.S. Grand Prix. Whereas last year the Drivers' Championship had been settled before the race started, this year's race could still mean a change in the final result. Watkins Glen, situated in North-West New York State, is the area known as the Fingers...

Legends in their own lap times

Sports car racing is in the throes of a recovery, but it seems unlikely it will ever again reach such charismatic heights as it did 25 years ago The whoosh of tyres sliding hopelessly on wet tarmac is something every driver fears. So was the thump! as Barrie Smith's Lola T70 smote the protective banking in front of the Grovewood Suite at Brands Hatch. No mean driver, Smith had lost the Lola all...
