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...

THE LAIR OF T HFLAS \AS A cheery evening in the bar led to a challenge what would be the daffest racer? GORDON CRUICKSHANK I. ntrigued by anyone who can make a Nash Metropolitan go quite so fast in the St Mary's Trophy, I'm threading through the deep-hedged lanes of Sussex, convinced I'm in the wrong place, looking for CCK Historic. Then, through a narrow gate, I spy a race-prepped Volvo PV544...

In praise of Charles Lucas

Sir, Having been an avid reader of MOTOR SPORT and Denis Jenkinson for over 30 years I long since realise that D.S.J. has a number of prejudices which he likes to parade in his column from time to time. One of these is that historic races cannot be compared with the real thing and whereas they are mildly entertaining, the car's performances in the hands of mainly amateurs are only average. The...

Driven by John Kendall and Mike Walker, they are having a fair amount of success but so far there have been no big wins abroad. In our last “Teams." feature we talked to...

Marshal memories

Sir, It came as no surprise to hear and read of the crowd's reaction to the spectacular saloon car race at the Goodwood Revival meeting in September. That Gerry Marshall won was only right and proper, and to be expected! During the ten years that Gerry drove for our Dealer Team Vauxhall operation at Shepreth in Cambridgeshire in the 1970s he scored over one hundred outright victories in our...

Track test -- Dunboyne

A decade after Dundrod was closed to cars on safety grounds, this Irish circuit was flourishing and claiming lives. Damien Smith reports Nine o'clock in the morning and, just like anywhere in the western world, the roads are jammed. This was once a typical Irish village serving a local farming community and little else. But given that it's only 15 miles outside Dublin, just beyond the city's M25-...

Crystal Palace

Team Lotus scored yet another Formula Junior victory at the B.A.R.C. Crystal Palace meeting on September 2nd, when Trevor Taylor won the September Trophy and made a new F.J. lap record in so doing. The first heat, however, did provide some variety, for Dennis Taylor's Lola led throughout with Hine's team Lola firmly in second place and four seconds behind at the finish. Peter Arundell came third...

B.A.R.C. Easter Monday at Goodwood

Goodwood, Sussex. April 19th. The practice day on the Saturday of Easter weekend was blessed with mixed weather, so that times and starting-grid positions did not give a true indication of the possible outcome of the racing. The Formula One cars had two periods of practice, the first one dry and the second one wet, so that some drivers got caught out by reserving their big effort for the...
