Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

New series for sports-racers

The FIA European Sportscar Championship of the 1970s will be recreated in 2011 after the Historic Sports Car Club announced plans to run a new pan-European series for 2-litre sports-racing cars built up to 1978. Initially, the new series will take in four or five events in the UK and Europe, but the club has longer-term plans to run the series alongside the successful Historic Formula 2 Trophy,...

Recent Racing Results

As Motor Sport is a monthly magazine it is unable to keep up the weekly flow of information on race meetings all over the world offered by some other publications. Thus we restrict our racing coverage to the major Championship meetings and other important fixtures, but this does not mean that we are not watching and taking note of the events elsewhere. In recent weeks there have been several...

Reflections on the Monaco G.P.

I admit freely that tears of emotion welled up in my tired old eyes as I watched Jim Clark pull out a five-second lead in the first three laps of the 1964 Grand Prix of Monaco. It seemed unbelievable that anyone could go that much faster than the rest of the field when for the past three days of practice all the fast drivers had been within tenths of a second of his best time, and yet there are...

Adrian Hamilton

If you hanker for a car that seems unattainable, you need to speak to Adrian Hamilton’s Haversham firm. There is one car, though, he’ll never sell. Words: Richard Heseltine. Photography: Charlie Hopkinson With a car dealing, Le Mans-winning raconteur for a father, Adrian Hamilton’s choice of career was a given. Not that he ever wanted to do anything else: “I’ve been very lucky in that my hobby is...

Although an instant success on the track, the Marcos had a far from trouble-free upbringing By Richard Heseltine / Photography by Howard Simmons As bad an idea as it so often is to judge a book by its cover, with the Marcos coupé, it’s hard to resist the temptation. That long, priapic nose, improbably low roofline and super-swoopy hind treatment coalesce into one of the most dramatic outlines...

Martini Trophy

Hezemans Darts to victory Silverstone, June 5th. Two-litre sports-car racing at its very best came to Britain early in June when the Aston Martin Owners' Club ran their major meeting of the year, the Martini Trophy, around the European 2-litre Sports-Car Championship. The two-part Martini race itself was the third round of the series, which was instigated last year, and the first ever to be held...

RACING DRIVERS DIRECTORY -I The racing careers of the leading Grand Prix drivers have been repeated so many times that they are well known to most followers of the Sport. We feel that there are just as many interesting stories to be told about the men who race almost every weekend at Club and National meetings up and down the country. We hope that those people who watch the racing from the...

Lancashire hot shot

The name of Chevron is so familiar that it's almost a surprise to remember that it was a major manufacturer only for about 12 years. The car that put the company on the map was the B8, still highly successful in Historic racing. The main force behind Chevron was one man: Derek Bennett, who first made his reputation as a midget racer on Northern speedway tracks during the 1950s. He was a fine...

American comment

The sixth year of Can-Am competition in America saw Team McLaren once again on the receiving end of the major share of a $1-million prize, accessory, and qualifying prize fund. Final tabulated statistics show the overall winner, Peter Revson, to have earned $192,000, and Hulme, who finished in the runner-up position, $138,937, making the tidy sum of $320,937 (approximately £128,000) for the...
