Book reviews

Fifty Famous Motor Racesby Alan Henry. 224 pp. 11" x 7½". (Thorsons Publishing Group Ltd, Denington Estate, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN8 2RQ. £16.95.) A nice idea, this, to remember fifty famous occasions - not necessarily superb contests but great events. Alan Henry has chosen races ranging from the 1935 German Grand Prix, when Nuvolari at his peak took victory for Alfa Romeo from under...

A record worth its salt

Fifty years ago Donald Campbell’s outdated Bluebird defied the jet age by setting a new Land Speed Record. The scene remains one of the most inhospitable places in the world Writer James Nicholls It is 50 years since Donald Campbell broke the world land speed record on Lake Eyre in South Australia with his gas-turbine car Bluebird. On July 17 1964 he recorded the incredible speed of 403.100mph in...

Veteran-Edwardian-vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters V.S.C.C. Oulton Park Race Meeting (July 22nd) Oulton Park is such a pleasant venue, reminiscent of old Donington, that this is one of the most enjoyable vintage speed fixtures of the year. This time there were no special attractions, apart from the traditional parade of Concours d'Elegance cars and, indeed, there was little time for anything but the racing,...

Secondhand Car Test with a Difference

Six hours round Silverstone in a 62,000-mile-old Datsun 240Z It is said that International motor racing has become the preserve of millionaires.

The Summer

Frazer Nash by David Thirlby. 206 pp. 91 in. x 7 in. (G. T. Foulis & Co. Ltd., Sparkford, Yeovil, Somerset, BA 22 7JJ, £5.95). If so many people find the Rolls-Royce irresistible, I find Frazer Nashes (and their forerunners, the G.N.s) absolutely fascinating. And so, I know, do all the "Chain Gang". So this second book about all the sporting G.N., Frazer Nash, and relevant BMW cars is very...

Veteran-Edwardian-vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters 1,000 Miles in 24 hours in "Chain-Gang" Frazer Nash cars In 1936 the late Sir J. O. C. Samuel completed a run of 1,000 miles in 24 hours in a Frazer Nash on behalf of Cleveland Discol petrol. From discussion of this achievement at the annual "Chain-Gang" party it was but a short step to speculation as to whether the feat was possible today—and we are now able...

Letters From Readers

N.B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and "Motor Sport" does not necessarily associate itself with them.—Ed. NO MORE FORDS Sir, I note that the majority of London motorists favour a Ford car and I wonder if they realise the risk they are taking, or do Londoners get better service than we provincials, in running a Dagenham-built car ? I have had three reasonably good Fords in the...
