A Question of Numbers

Talking to Patrick Head, the designer of the Frank Williams team cars, he queried why the specialist motor magazines insisted on quoting the chassis numbers of his cars with two noughts before the number, i.e. 004. "There is no way we are going to build 999 cars, so why not call the cars 1, 2, 3, 4," he said. Sound Head logic I agreed, but pointed out, on the car by which we were standing, the...

XXI Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. sweeps the board Monte Carlo, May 26th. This year it was the turn of the Monaco Grand Prix to be called the Grand Prix of Europe, but more important it was the first Grande Epreuve of the 1963 season. This was unfortunate in some ways because it did not encourage anyone with a new design to try it out, the accident hazard on the street circuit being rather formidable. However, some new...

XIX Grand Prix of Monaco

What a race ! Monte Carlo, May 14th. With no races being held in the Argentine this year the Monaco GP was the first Grande Epreuve of the season and naturally everyone wanted to be in it but, as usual, the number of cars permitted to start on the narrow and twisting 3.145-km circuit was limited to sixteen. This year a different arrangement of selection was used, in place of the previous idea of...

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

Goodwood, Sussex, (April 11th). About 30,000 spectators attended the International Easter Monday meeting at Goodwood, the last to be held at the Sussex circuit, and it was limited to Formula Two cars as being the fastest cars. The dry and sunny day began with a Formula Three race, in which there were a lot of non-starters, but the main stars took part and Chris Williams (Brabham-Ford) set a very...

The Private Teams

The names of Team Lotus, Cooper Cars, Owen Racing Organisation, etc. are household words, for they are constantly in the full glare of publicity. But what of the smaller teams and private owners, without whom there would be very little racing at all? In an effort to rectify the disproportionately small amount of publicity received by the small teams we have asked them a few questions about their...

Formula One - Japanese and Australian Grands Prix

Far Eastern Fantasy The worldwide Formula One Championship took the travelling 'circus' to Japan on October 21st, to the medium fast interesting Suzuka circuit with its unusual figure of eight layout with a flyover in the middle, and then south to the Adelaide street circuit in Australia on November 4th, there to wind up the 1990 season of sixteen races. The Australian Grand Prix was the 500th...

The Cooper Driving School

Last winter the Cooper Driving School selected six drivers from their many candidates to take part in races during the 1960 season in Formula Junior. At the time it was anticipated that the best two drivers, Bill Lacey from Ireland and Don Rickman the motorcyclist, would be given a Formula Junior Cooper on permanent loan for the whole season, but as things turned out this was not possible....

On The New Formula Two

When the F.I.A. announced that Formula Junior would finish at the end of 1963 and be replaced by two Formulae, one above and one below in technical standards to the existing Formula Junior, it seemed like a sound move. It meant that there would be two reasonable stepping-stones up the ladder of single-seater racing to the pinnacle of Formula One or Grand Prix racing. However, the detailed rules...

The 11th Grand Prix of The United States of America

First Victory for Rindt Watkins Glen, USA, October 5th The 1969 World Championship had been settled while the Grand Prix cars were still in Europe, but to some minds there was even more at stake at Watkins Glen. The circuit, which is run on a non-profitmaking basis, attracts a huge crowd and after last year's race there was a large surplus in the kitty. Some of this went to local charities, some...

Brighton Speed Trials and S.T.D. Register

The 54th Brighton Speed Trials attracted 280 entries this year and showed no sign of losing its popularity in spite of the attraction of the T.T. at Goodwood. The weather was perfect all day and apart from a number of false starts and a fire in some canvas screens the long meeting was concluded without incident. Some of the more interesting entries did not materialise or had mechanical troubles,...
