Racing on the Continent

Grand Prix de l'Europe 1 1/2-litre Alfa-Romeos 1, 2, 3 at Spa. Wimille wins at 95.28 m.p.h. and sets fastest lap at nearly 102 m.p.h.

It was rumoured that before the race Pierre Wimille had done a lap at about 104 m.p.h., almost...

XV Grand Prix De Pau

Pau, April 20th. The Pau Grand Prix took place on Easter Monday over the 2.769 kilometre course which is one of the few remaining of the street-race type, and furthermore one which has not been altered in any way since 1935. Two practice periods were allowed for the twelve competitors, the maximum deemed safe on the narrow twisting circuit, and it is a sign of the times that only two private...

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...

Continental Notes

Before the International Trophy meeting at Silverstone the Scuderia Ferrari were rapidly making history, for out of nine events in which the factory team competed they won eight, these being the Argentine, Mendoza, Agadir, Dakar, Sebring, Giro Sicilia, Syracuse and the Mille Miglia. Their only defeat was by Maserati in the 1,000-kilometre race at Buenos Aires, and everything pointed to 1956 being...

The 1,000 Kilometres Race - Montlhery

Another Victory for Maserati Montlhery, June 10th. The 1,000 kilometre sports-car race, held at the Montlhery Autodrome, south of Paris, was the first real motor race to be held in France since the catastrophic event at Le Mans last year, and this may have accounted for the very strong entry it received. During the winter months the Autodrome underwent a face-lifting operation in which the pits...

Notes On The Cars At Monte Carlo

Ferrari had five cars for his team of drivers, Fangio, Castellotti, Musso, and Collins. They were all modified Lancias, three of them with the Syracuse body style where the pontoons merge into the body, and two with the Argentine layout. Mechanically the cars were unchanged from previous races, the V8 engines still using double-choke downdraught Solex carburetters. In view of the possible...

The 1,000 Kilometre Race at Nurburgring

Adenau, May 27th. This year the A.D.A.C. had their 1,000 kilometre race inscribed in the list of events counting for the Manufacturers' Championship and as a result the greatest collection of sports cars and sports-car drivers ever seen on the Nurburgring were gathered together. With entries from all the leading factories it was a true championship event, the only doubtful point being the...

XIV Grand Prix de Monaco

A really convincing win for Moss Monte Carlo, May 13th. The Classic Grand Prix of Monaco, held through the streets of Monte Carlo, was once again for Formula 1 cars and counted in the World Championship series, being the second in the 1956 list. Naturally all the big factory teams entered, leaving very little room for private owners, and in view of the town circuit being short and narrow a...
