1958 British Grand Prix race report - British supremacy shattered

  After the defeat by Ferrari at Reims it seemed almost certain that Vanwall would regain their pride of place at Silverstone, their own home ground and a medium-fast circuit on which the Ferrari handling characteristics would not appear ideal. Added to this was the fact that Silverstone is not a circuit where high power and maximum speed are so important, as at Spa or Reims, while if Vanwall...

British G.P. Cars Sweep the Board ZANDVOORT, May 26th (Whit Monday). THE last time that a Grand Prix was held at Zandvoort was in 1955, the year that Mercedes-Benz conquered all the opposition, and since then the K.N.A.C., who organise the race, felt they could not afford the capital outlay to run a World Championship event.

XXVIII Gran Premio d'Italia

A TRULY WONDERFUL VANWALL VICTORY Monza September 8th. Realising the impossibility, from a technical angle, of running a race on the combined road and track at Monza, the past lessons having been absorbed, the Automobile Club of Italy decided to hold this year's Grand Prix of Italy on the road circuit only. The last time this was done was in 1954, before the banked track was built, and then the...

V Grand Prix of Caen

Behra Banishes B.R.M. Bogey Caen, July 28th. Taking place one week after the British Grand Prix and one week before the German Grand Prix the race at Caen did not hope for a very exciting entry, relying mostly on private-owners and the smaller firms. However, Jean Behra was keen to take part and as the Scuderia Maserati were not interested in supplying a car, being too busy preparing for...
