Formula Two Barcelona G.P.

Although Formula Two has been dropped by all but one British race organiser, on the Continent of Europe the Formula opened in 1968 at Barcelona in Spain with a full entry list and many hopefuls being turned away. Even if the British race-going public have been made to think that they do not like the Formula, it still provides the major link between the relatively under-powered Formula Three and...

My Garda: Jonathan Williams

"I only raced at Garda once, in that final year when I won in the de Sanctis, but I remember it as one of the most romantic places of northern Italy. It was a beautiful track and had every sort of corner you could think of. You went through the town, and then when you went up the hill to Tormini it got progressively quicker until you got to the plateau where you'd do about 2km without lifting. If...

Continental Notes

THINGS SEEM to be happening in France in a rather fast and furious fashion and on all manner of fronts. It would seem that 1970 may well go down in the history books as a turning point in French sporting motoring. The French Grand Prix was to have been held on the rather flat, dull aerodrome circuit at Albi, but that idea has been dropped. While the circuit is pathetic, especially for a Grand...

Continental Notes

Now that we have had the first Grand Prix race of the year the alarms and excursions of who hopes to drive what car are over and 1968 season lies pretty clear ahead of us. Clark's win in the South African race with the Lotus 49 means that he has chalked up four Grand Prix wins in a row, the U.S.A. and Mexican races, the Spanish and now the South African, so it is not surprising that he is...

Men of Promise

A Dozen of Britain's brighter hopes for F.1 Motor Racing is a fascinating combination of man and his machine and should continue so for many years to come although it now seems possible that one day our scientists will be able to programme a computer to drive a racing car. The popular press often seems to be preoccupied by the man and to show a complete disregard for the very interesting machine...

Letter from Italy

Brief encounters Dear AH, There is something about Italy. On the way to Imola I was creeping round the Bologna ring road in solid traffic, and not enjoying myself, so I turned off to use the old Via Emilia, rather than the Autostrada. At least there is something to see when creeping along on the ordinary roads, whereas on an Autostrada it is merely tin boxes and lorries, with the occasional...

Yimkin days

Sir, I much enjoyed The Story of Diva (Motor Sport, April 1987) since Don Sim (and Yimkin) were responsible for the first Mini that I raced in 1961. I well remember arriving outside Yimkin's premises in Cadogan Lane, where Don was working, in the road, on a Mini which belonged, as I recall, to Marsh Midda. Don showed me the car as a come-on to doing business, and described Midda's car as "in the...

American Comment

Despite indications of a comeback by their opposition, the McLaren Racing Team of Hulme and McLaren swept the final two races of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup series and finished first and second in this international championship for Group 7 cars. The result continued the monopoly the team established in 1967—when Hulme won the first three races but ran out of luck in the western half of...
