American Comment

ANDRETTI concluded the most successful season in his career in appropriate fashion last month by driving his STP Hawk-Ford to victory in the final USAC race of the year, the Rex Mays 300 at Riverside.

Readers' letters

Another Fling Sir, Although there was a question mark following the title "Final Fling" to Mr Boyle's letter in the June issue of MOTOR SPORT I think it somewhat of a pessimistic heading.

The R.A.C. Rally

Tough 2,000 mile event around Great Britain ruined by protests. This year's R.A.C. International Rally started from Blackpool with 131 competitors (15 non-starters). A feature of the event was the pains taken by the R.A.C. to avoid interference with the public as the cars passed through built-up areas, but, on the other hand, the crews had to spend three nights out of bed, starting at Blackpool...

Power plants for flying machines

Some very early history [So many of us have to do with flying these days that some early history will not come amiss, and Cecil Clutton, in the article that follows, certainly writes as a true historian. – Ed.]  "And flying machines are possible, so that a man may sit in the middle, turning some device by which artificial wings may beat the air." – Roger Bacon, 1214-1292.)
