The racing historian, his fighter pilot son, and the Nazi…

One of the most cherished of all the volumes on my library shelves is a first-edition A Record of Motor Racing, published for the Royal Automobile Club by Reveirs Bros of Fetter Lane, London, in 1909. This was the first great British history of motor sport, and its young author, Gerald Rose, put his painstaking training as an engineer into researching and writing it. He addressed the earliest...

VALUE FOR MONEY AT BROOKLANDS

VALUE FOR MONEY AT BROOKLANDS The J .C.C.

The Editor Brings Together — Two B & M Aston-Martins

The Bamford and Martin Aston-Martins were made a long time ago, in quite small numbers, but interest in them has never been greater, thanks to the research into their history by the AMOC.
