Jim Russell wins wet British Empire Trophy Race

The British Empire Trophy, one of Britain's oldest races has been held yearly except for the war years since 1932, but has seldom proved a racing or commercial success. The latest in the series, held as a F2 race on Saturday, April 11th, did little to disprove this reputation. The first Empire Trophy race was won by John Cobb in the 10-1/2-litre Delage on the Brooklands Outer Circuit at 126.36 m....

The rest of the Silverstone circus

Not content with the Grand Prix there was a fiesta of fun and sport for the spectators. The day opened with the 25-lap Sports-Car Race, in which Flockhart ran right away from the field in the Coombs' 2-litre Cooper-Monaco after Dickson's Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco had retired from the lead with transmission failure. Ashdown's 1,100 Lola made all the big cars look ridiculous by holding second...

The course was half a mile in length, with a poor surface of sandy gravel, slightly uphill, with two gradual curves. After a rainy dawn the weather steadily improved, and later the sun came out to help make...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...
