A unique day at Ferrari

A chance visit to the factory where the ultimate in enthusiastic automobile excitement is normal. Tradition, a proud spirit of independent endeavour, and a taste of harsh setbacks overcome. These are qualities that ooze from the cobbled courtyard and ochre-shaded walls as we enter the factory at Maranello. Today there's abundant evidence of Fiat's enormous capital injection into the dusty and...

Rothmans World Championships Victory Race

Brands Hatch, October 24th. When the Mexican Grand Prix was cancelled Brands Hatch's idea of holding a Formula One race on the same date to bolster up the already heavy Motor Show 200 meeting programme seemed an excellent idea. The race was hurriedly given the title of the Rothmans World Championships Victory race and further light-hearted fun was added by the plan to have an Escort Mexico race...

The 42nd Italian Grand Prix

The dice of the debutants Monza, Italy, September 5th. Before the meeting began there was not too much enthusiasm among the Italian populace for the 42nd Italian Grand Prix, even though it was the 50th anniversary of the running of the first Italian Grand Prix. This was because the fortunes of the Ferrari team were at a very low ebb following defeat in the Austrian Grand Prix, the race in which...

Formula One: Belgian GP

Near disaster After the race at Imola, in Italy, the "circus" moved north to Belgium for the next round in the Formula One Championship series. Unlike a true travelling circus the teams did not move en bloc, but all sped back to their homes in Italy, Germany. France and England where rebuilding, development, testing, and experiment continued, together with analysis and reckoning on the results of...

Matters of Moment

Spectators and Racing Spectators are now an essential part of motor racing. There was a time when they were just an unwanted nuisance, as in the Paris-Madrid of 1903, when their curiosity caused the end of town-to-town contests. But because manufacturers and their Trade organisations ceased to build or sponsor cars for research and publicity purposes the science passed to smaller firms, who had...

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.

A Sad World

Dear AH, It is around this time of the year that I begin to get the fidgets and feel it is time that I heard the sound of a racing engine again. It was brought home to me recently when a friend showed me the video tape he had made of the BBC television documentary on the life and times of John Surtees. After some chat and rummaging around some static museum pieces we suddenly saw (and heard!) the...
