Veteran to Classic - Carrera Panamericana

The Carrera Panamericana is a 7-day marathon dash through Mexico in what are essentially pre-1955 cars commemorating the Fifties event and such great names as Fangio, Hill and Kling, to name but a few, tearing down the Pan American Highway in Lancia D24s, Ferrari 375s and lightweight Mercedes 300 SLs. There were and are classes for small-bore sports cars and big, limited production sports cars as...

Patrick's paternal flame

Michael Head’s exploits at Goodwood in the 1950s were a defining influence on the life of his young son. Now the reflective legend of F1 design is preparing for a suitable tribute to his father Writer Rob Widdows, photographer Mitch Pashavair "Mmmm, I see you’ve only used 5100,” he observes gruffly, peering down at the rev counter. “I hope we’re going to push harder than that. Is there a rev...

A perfect period drama

The sun shone, the racing ran from dawn till dusk, and people dressed up and played their part. The 10th anniversary Goodwood Revival was indeed a special occasionBy Rob Widdows All arms and elbows, four-wheel drifts, tails out, touching the turf, drivers grinning and spectators cheering. This has to be September in Sussex. Boy, oh boy, this Goodwood Revival is good stuff, a reminder of how and...

Rally Preview - The 1991 Season

The World Series for 1991 Much has happened in world rallying circles in the past year, but no-one can argue that the most significant issue of 1990 was not the overthrow of Lancia drivers for whom the World title had been a preserve since Peugeot left the fray after 1986. Lancia did win the World Rally Championship for Makes last year, but the person, the real, flesh-and-blood driver himself who...

Pure theatre

Sir, Your November editorial considered reasons why and how watchable motorsport may develop in coming years. What you didn't address is why people want to watch. Surely the pure theatre of seeing drivers balance cars with steering wheel and throttle brings not just an adrenalin rush but an urge to buy another ticket and come again. Historic racing is strong in this area: anyone who saw Ludovic...

50 years on

In order to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, the HSCC hosted a one-off two-day Historic race meeting at Donington Park, and with the assistance of a number of specialist clubs and groups, including the VSCC and HGPCA, assembled a quite superb entry, which, in terms of variety and quality, was second only to the Coys Festival in the British racing calendar, with on-track action being...

That Edwardian Race

The VSCC Edwardian race at the two-day Oulton Park Meeting last July aroused so much enthusiasm and favourable comment that I am encouraged to take another look at it. The entry was varied and excellent but could have been even more enjoyable. Of the big Edwardians which made such an impression when the VSCC first introduced them to spectators in 1936 some were missing. For instance, the 200hp...

Slippery Lappery

The forecast said rain, and rain there was! So during the Shuttleworth & Nuffield Trophies Meeting at Donington Park on September 19, finale of the 1987 VSCC racing season, spins and wild slides at the chicane provided additional entertainment. Most older cars used to oversteer, but many owners have since made them understeerers, as the slippery conditions clearly demonstrated . . . The...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...
