Club news

We hear Geoff Duke was voted Sportsman of 1951 in a national ballot organised by the Sporting Record. Out of over 223,000 votes Duke polled 61,939, a fine indication of the present popularity of motor sport. Runner-up was Randolph Turpin, with 52,219 votes, Reg Harris, winner in 1949 and 1950, dropping to 30,202 votes. Duke will be presented with the Sportsman of the Year Trophy at the Savoy...

Continental Notes

Only last April I was writing about the growing interest in Grand Prix racing and how Formula 1 events were filling the calendar thick and fast. I pointed out how the Classic events were assured and were being supported by races such as Syracuse, Pau and Naples. Now, after the first of the European World Championship events in Grand Prix, held at Monaco on May 19th, there has been a complete...

Cotton On

WSC Prospects -- False Dawn? Just eight 3.5-litre cars were registered for the 1991 World Sportscar Championship when FISA closed the list on March 15, and the administrators must have thanked their lucky stars that they had decided, somewhat begrudgingly a year ago, to allow the 'unlimited' fuel consumption controlled cars a year of grace. There are 10 of those, making a half-decent grid of 18...

The Racing Mechanics

Continued from the March Issue ”Alf" Francis In order that there shall be no misunderstanding at the outset, the writer would like to make clear that he has never met the subject of this present article, and, to show how the years pass, when your Editor 'phoned the other day and said in a commanding time, "What about 'doing Francis?", he replied with what dignity be could muster, "Bill, I'm so...

Continental Notes

Unforunately it is not very often that any of the big British manufacturers do anything in the competition world that I view with other than antipathy, for most of the efforts are usually so misdirected, but the entry by Rootes of two Sunbeam Rapiers in the Mille Miglia raises the eyebrows and opens the eyes. The remarks by Sir William Rootes about making some sort of effort to wave the British...

Looking Back with Harry Rose

I drove to Manchester the other day, not to report on the prison riots then raging, but to talk about pre-war motor racing with Harry Rose, who drove Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Hotchkiss cars at Brooklands and Donington. We went in a 1.4 LX Ford Orion, very economical (38.6 mpg overall and a decent quantity of unleaded 4-star left in the 10.6 gallon tank after the Wales-Manchester-Wales commute,...

Tax Exile

The Nash-Healey was the first of the post-war Anglo-American hybrids, presaging various Allards, the AC Cobra, Ford GT40 and 71/R Griffith, as well as more refined vehicles from Bristol, Gordon-Keeble and Jensen. It was made only for sale in America, although works cars competed with distinction at Le Mans and in the Mille Miglia. But it was done for by economics and a family rival. In 1949...

The Reims Weekend

Ferrari Has a Clean Sweep Reims, July 13/14th. With the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. being run at Rouen this year the organisers of the Reims circuit were left without a World Championship meeting for their high-speed circuit. As the B.P. fuel and oil company were sponsoring the meeting once again, with enormous prize money as last year, a veritable fiesta of speed and sport was laid on. So great is...

The 43rd Grand Prix De L'A.C.F.

Fangio the Master Rouen, July 7th. After trying for many years, the Automobile Club Normand at last succeeded in wresting the French Grand Prix away from the Automobile Club du Champagne, and this year's race was held on the wonderful natural road circuit of Rouen-Les Essarts. This circuit is without question the finest in France and approaches the Spa circuit for the ultimate in Grand Prix...

Giro Di Sicilia

Palermo, April 5th. The island of Sicily is not big by European standards, but in spite of this the motoring activity is enormous and the Tour Of Sicily, for touring and sports cars, held on Sunday, April 4th, began a very full calendar of events. The Tour of Sicily is run on the same lines as the infamous Mille Miglia, which is to say that competitors start at minute intervals and cover one lap...
