The classic restorers Hall & Hall

Hall & Hall On a windswept Lincolnshire Airflied, once the home of BRM, the Shriek of a supercharged V16 can still sometimes be heard. But there's no supernatural agency at work: 20 years after the team folded, Gordon Cruickshank visits a firm which is perpetuating the legend The instructions say, 'Turn left at Owen's Barn'. There are no signs, just a big black construction looking more...

My greatest race - Trevor Taylor

Mallory Park Formula Three race, July 7 1957 A borrowed sprocket and some strange advice from an unlikely source was enough to turn Trevor Taylor from Formula Three rank outsider to outright race winner I had a bit of a disastrous Formula One career. People always said there's only one way to make a name for yourself, and that's to loop-the-loop in front of the grandstand. I had a bloody good...

Reflections on the Monaco G.P.

I admit freely that tears of emotion welled up in my tired old eyes as I watched Jim Clark pull out a five-second lead in the first three laps of the 1964 Grand Prix of Monaco. It seemed unbelievable that anyone could go that much faster than the rest of the field when for the past three days of practice all the fast drivers had been within tenths of a second of his best time, and yet there are...

Track Test --- TVR

Exhilarating! I confess to being mystified by TVR products, falling totally out of touch when our Mr Gordon "GC" Cruickshank relinquished his V8 and I was no longer subject to his enthusiastic propaganda on the subject. It was therefore a total surprise when the Blackpool factory PR, James Pillar, rang and asked the writer to take over the number 1 "celebrity" car in the 1991 TVR Tuscan...

Racing still shines despite shunt and rain

The historic sports car club's second race meeting of the season was its annual visit to Mallory Park. Some entertaining racing from most of the club's championships was marred by a hefty accident that befell John Bladon's ex-Sam Posey Surtees TS11 F5000. A misunderstanding with backmarker Roger Stone (Lola T142) pitched the Surwes into the barriers approaching Gerards in the Derek Bell Trophy...

Lunch with... Lola

Lola’s founder and its saviour recall 50 years of entrepreneurial effort which has taken in almost every category of motor racing By Simon Taylor There are easier ways to make money than by building racing cars for sale. In fact, the major makers since the 1950s – the likes of Cooper, Lotus, Elva, Brabham, March, Reynard – have all, for one reason or another, hit the buffers and disappeared. The...

Editorial

Whenever Ferrari got on the blower to Cliff Allison to invite him over to test, Brough's finest would jump in his car, drive to Darlington, climb aboard the Kings Cross express, catch a coach to London Airport, fly to Malpensa, north of Milan, where he was (sometimes) greeted by Ferrari people who would often have to explain that the car was not ready and ask if he would mind coming back next...

A Poor Man in Search of Motor Sport by Arthur Mallock

"For unto every one that hath shall he given. But from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath." (St. Matthew, Chapter 25, verse 29). So it is in motor racing. The impecunious enthusiast has the choice of restricting his motor sport to the lowest possible level, or gambling his "all" on a desperate attempt to reach a position where material returns begin to balance outlay....
