"Daily Herald" International Trophy

Oulton Park, August 18th. Rain has been known to fall. Rain has been known to full at Oulton Park. The weather surpassed itself on August 18th however, when almost continuous rain spoilt the BRSCC Daily Herald International Trophy Meeting. Sports cars and 500-cc racing cars were scheduled to run in the seven-hour programme; but before the lunch interval rain began to fall heavily causing floods...

Matters of Moment

The British Grand Prix After a period of over a month without a major motor race, Aintree became the animated scene of the B.A.R.C. British Grand Prix on July 16th, and, run off in hot summer weather before a vast crowd estimated at 150,000, the race was happily devoid of accident, confirming that Grands Prix with evenly-matched cars driven by the leading exponents are the safest form of racing...

VII Grande Premio de Portugal

A Real Road Race Porto, August 24th Although six previous Portuguese Grand Prix events have been held, starting in 1950 and fluctuating between the Porto circuit and the Lisbon circuit, they have all been for sports cars and, strictly speaking, not Grand Prix races at all. This year a full-scale Formula I event was organised and, in addition, it formed a round in the Drivers' World Championship...

Reflections on the Monaco G.P.

THE decision by Clark and Gurney to compete in the Indianapolis 500-mile race in preference to the Monaco G.P. upset some people and surprised others. It really should not have been a surprise, for both are professional racing drivers and for either of them to become the first road-racing-type driver to win Indianapolis, apart from the vast bag of gold, would be an important and satisfying...

The Greatest drivers of the century - a personal view

Part three of Mark Hughes' examination of the hundred greatest Grand Prix drivers from a century of motor racing features no fewer than ten of the twenty-seven Formula One World Champions and a smattering of pre-war stars with a string of achievements no less impressive.

XVI GRAND PRIX DE MONACO

Rob Walker Equipe Wins Again MONTE CARLO, May 18th. THE organising committee of the Automobile Club of Monaco deserve full marks for not pandering to the present-day ideas of the F.I.A. in turning Grand Prix races into " sprint-type ” events, for they kept the XVI Monaco G.P. to a traditional full-length G.P. of 100 laps of the tiny, narrow, 3.145-km. street circuit. On the other hand they...

XIX Grosser Preis Von Deutschland

Fangio the supreme master ADENAU (EIFEL), August 4th. Once again the Grand Prix teams came together to pit their skill and endurance against the fabulous Nurburgring, for the German GP is seldom a split-second race of driver against driver, but more often the result of car/driver combination against the 22.810 kilometres of the Eifel mountain circuit. While there are many people who know every...

From our Archives - Grand Prix domination

As the Editor pointed out last month, Grand Prix racing has never been in such an open state, with every race wide open as to its outcome. No driver, or make of car, has been dominating the scene and this must be a healthy state of affairs to encourage everyone to put every effort into their racing. Over the years there has often been one team or one driver who has dominated the Grand Prix scene...
