RUMBLINGS

If Winter Comes . . . ALTHOUGH we should really be shaking the moth from our leather waistcoats and getting down to Monte Carlo Rally schedules, that great Grand Prix at Donington is difficult to forget and enthusiasts this autumn seem to weakly disregard the coming winter and to talk happily of the next racing season. Racing under the new Formula will be extremely interesting. New cars are...

Some Cars in War-Time

Some Cars in War-Time S. H. Statham reminds us that, war or no war, you can't quench enthusiasm for the Sport.—Ed.
