Alta

Sports and Racing Cars Fifty years ago, in 1931, the Alta Car and Engineering Company Ltd. was formed by Geoffrey Taylor, then 27 years old and the owner of a small home-built sports car, the object being to build production versions of this car. Taylor had been earning a living doing contract machine work for the nearby ABC company close to where he lived in Kingston Hill, in SW London. Late in...

Racing-Car Transports

Key to pictures on page 28 (1) European Ambassador. — The best-known English racing van on the Continent must surely be the much-travelled H.W.M. team's green A.E.C. Specially built and given to John Heath by an appreciative enthusiast, it carries the three H.W.M. racing cars and all the equipment the length and breadth of Europe. (2) Personal Transport. — Louis Rosier uses this large blue...

XV Grosser Preis Von Deutschland

Practice Notes One interesting point about the Nurburgring is its excellent concrete Paddock, with lock-up garages around the sides and the majority of teams take advantage of this, consequently there is always much of mechanical interest to be seen during the practice periods. Of the three works Ferraris, Ascari and Taruffi were using the new engines with the magnetos mounted in front of the...

Vintage Postbag

Singer History Sir, Although the correspondence on the team Singers was closed a couple of months ago, may 1, for the sake of future historians, be allowed to correct one or two mistakes that arose? In Mr. Montgomery's interesting letter ( July issue) he mentions J. E. S. Jones as the owner of one of these cars. This should he A. W. Jones, who raced the car before and after the war. J. E. S....

INTERVIEW

The king they never crowned. Life, for Stirling Moss, continues at 150 mph, a series of bends and obstacles to be taken at maximum throttle. But instead of balancing a Maserati 250F, a Vanwall, a Cooper or a Lotus in a delicate four-wheel drift, now he balances the rigours of a hectic schedule of business activities with the same commitment that he brought to his racing. In his heyday he was the...

Looking back with Paul Frere

Just occasionally, to keep a sense of perspective over the subject about which they are writing, motoring journalists try their hand at active motor ,racing. Some in recent years have achieved a fair degree of prowess in saloon car racing categories (including one of our number at Standard House) while others have contented themselves to "dip their feet" from time to time, usually retiring a...

New Blood

Some newcomers to the Sport and their achievements to date One of the most encouraging factors about the post-war resumption of racing has been the number of drivers entirely new to the game and the skill which, almost without exception, they have displayed, often at the wheel of really tricky and potent cars. Before the war organisers, quite rightly, regarded with suspicion newcomers who entered...

Emphasis on sports cars

Two Jaguar X120 engined "Specials," Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar and EP Scragg's Alta Jaguar. One of the more interesting and potent "specials" to appear in this year's sports-car and club races has been Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar. Its successes are rather too numerous to detail, but it will be recalled that at the last BARC Members' Meeting at Goodwood, Moore won a scratch race at 74.61 mph, and was...

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...

Rumblings

Preparations As the new season of racing comes nearer plans and preparations conceived during the winter come closer to fruition. Naturally, in view of the emphasis on Formula II and the splendid showing of the HWM team in this field last year, as described in the September issue of Motor Sport, eyes turn to Walton-On-Thames, where John Heath is well advanced with the 1952 HWM Formula II cars....
