Wiscombe Park (April 6/7th)

Opening the Wiscombe Park Hill-Climb on April 6/7th was a two-day event organised by the Aston Martin Owners' Club. The Saturday was devoted solely to Club members with pre-war Aston Martins opening the proceedings with a close battle for first place being waged between Tony Riseley (1932 International) and Derrick Edwards (1935 Ulster); the decision finally going to Edwards by a tenth of a...

An Interesting Experiment OULTON PARK, May 1st. AFTER some rather uninspiring years at Goodwood, the T.T. moved to the pleasant parkland circuit at Oulton Park for this year's race, and was organised by the B.A.R.C. for the R.A.C., with the co-operation of the Cheshire Car Circuit Ltd., and financed by the Senior Service cigarette company. Somehow, the idea of a T.T. race on anything other than a...

Guards International Trophy

For the last few years the big B.R.S.C.C. sports-car meeting on the Monday of the August Bank Holiday weekend has provided the best racing in the country at the time. This season's event was well up to standard, fine weather and an excellent entry for all five races on the programme resulting in an even larger turnout of spectators than usual—over 30,000 being estimated by some people. The main...

A.M.O.C. Martini 100 Meeting, Silverstone (July 14th)

Twelve hours of solid rain preceded the Aston Martin O.C.'s "Martini 100" race meeting at Silverstone, and the course did not dry out fully until three of the seven races had been run. Two of these were for sports and sports/racing cars, 1,600-c.c. being the arbitrary dividing line. Mike Beckwith (Lotus 23) won the up-to 1,600-c.c. race without trouble, while Douglas Graham won the larger-engined...

Old Glory's Goodwood

American cars and drivers played a small but intriguing role in the history of the circuit. Paul Fearnley picks out the transatlantic highlights — and lowlights Goodwood is quintessentially British; there's nothing quite so red, white and blue as the South Downs. There is, however, a tinge of Stars and Stripes within that... It was the effervescent, Paris-born, card-carrying American (when it...

Racing at Whitsun

Goodwood (June 3rd) The B.A.R.C.'s National British Race Meeting at Goodwood on Whit Monday June 3rd, although being the secondary meeting to their Crystal Palace International Race Meeting held simultaneously, provided Ferrari an opportunity for free practice for the R.A.C.

Out of the blue

This Tojeiro pioneered the 'cart-before-the-horse' approach to GTs as Paul Parker explains Ecurie Ecosse's Tojeiro-Climax is a landmark car in the history of European sportscar racing. When it appeared in 1962, it was arguably the first professionally-constructed, rear-engined (and closed-roof) GT prototype and was one year ahead of the Lola effort that formed the basis of the iconic GT40. From...

31st International Tourist Trophy

In a blaze of late April sunshine the 1966 International T.T., 31st in the series since it began in 1905, was held for the second time at Oulton Park. It must be said at the outset that, although drivers and mechanics worked really hard, it was a comparatively dreary race which caused the car-park exeunt to begin long before the race ended. Indeed, as the event progressed more attentions seemed...

Some of the 1965 competition cars

The competition car manufacturers start showing their wares to racing drivers early in the year and it is fairly obvious from those which have been shown to the public that builders are concentrating on the large-capacity sports/racing cars. This class should certainly provide some of the most exciting racing this season for apart from the American cars like the Hussein Special, Scarab and the...
