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...

Two sucessful specials

The Cooper-Daimler The practice of using a V8 engine, other than a Formula One Climax or B.R.M. unit, has met with little success in this country, although the Americans have been using Buick-engined Scarabs, inspired cohsiderably by Cooper design techniques, for several seasons. The first really successful conversions to meet with any degree of reliability are the Cooper-Daimler, owned and...

The Aintree International '200' Race

A fine victory for Jim Clark's V8 Lotus Aintree, April 28th This Aintree '200' saw the first corning-together of the majority of the 1962 works teams, the exception being Porsche, whose flat-eight engine is not yet racing. 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...

Godiva laid bare

Sir, I enjoyed reading of the completion of the Kieft Formula One car (March 2003) and to learn that it had been rightfully united with the Coventry-Climax Godiva engine. Judging from the photos it looks a task well done. Such a pity that it never raced in the era for which it was intended. I should like to point out, for sake of historical accuracy, that the engine fitted to the Shannon Formula...

REASONS FOR RETIREMENTS Sir,. There are two small items of information I can give you, that may be of some interest to you in compiling those extremely good and accurate race reports that are such a feature of your magazine. Firstly, in the race at Snetterton on March 27th for single-seater racing cars, our car, driven by Klaas (Jimmy) Twisk, was lying second behind the Cooper-based Maserati-...

Madgwick Moments

For two decades Goodwood served as a proving ground for racers, team owners and mechanics. Mark Hughes asks some to recall the lighter times at the track. Rob Walker - renowned privateer team owner "In 1957 after practice was over, Stirling came over to me. In those days you'd have a general mixed session for half an hour at the end of the day where anything could run, so there were MGs mixed up...

Lola's Formula One heritage

1962: Eric Broadley is persuaded by Reg Parnell to build a Formula One car for the Bowmaker Racing team. Designated the Mk 4, this secures pole position for its first World Championship encounter, the Dutch GP at Zandvoort, in the hands of John Surtees. This tally has still to be added to in 244 attempts! Surtees retires on this occasion, but the car proves a consistent frontrunner, taking the ex...

The Cars of Paul Emery

Although the building of specials is a world-wide occupation, the British have a particular flair for it, it's part of the great amateur tradition, I suppose. Look into the background of most racing car designers, and a good few leading production car designers, and you will find a special which, not infrequently, was raced. Some will even tell you that their first attempt with the parts of an...

Ferrari dominates the Aintree "200"

On April 18th the Grand Prix  circus moved on to the three-mile circuit built round the Grand National course at Aintree, where a very fine entry list had been obtained for the International "200" Race. This race has suffered in the past from poor entries, which has hardly classified it as "International," but the programme for this year's event was almost of Grande Epreuve status. Enzo Ferrari...

14th International Trophy Meeting

Silverstone, May 12th. With the Dutch Grand Prix only a week away the British teams came to Silverstone for the final round of the British "season" in a much more advanced state than at Snetterton, Goodwood or Aintree, although one cynical observer remarked that most of the British cars are worn out before the real racing starts. Lotus still had only one V8 engine, the Climax unit which had...
