B.R.D.C. "Daily Express" trophy

Silverstone, April 29th. Altering the date of the Monaco Grand Prix this year brought it uncomfortably close to the B.R.D.C.

Neither the works Cooper-Maserati nor Eagle teams were present, while B.R.M., Lotus and Ferrari were represented by a single car apiece. The entry was further reduced when the...

VIII Grand Prix of Portugal Moss and Cooper-Walker are untouchable

Lisbon, August 23rd. Having started Grand Prix racing in Portugal last year with the race at Porto, enthusiasm for such racing continued and this year the Portuguese Grand Prix was held at Lisbon, the National Automobile Club ringing the changes on the venue for their major motor-racing event in the same way as Great Britain does.

The Magnificent Five

With the Silly Season upon us, the five Brits in F1 face an anxious wait as team managers consider who's hot and who's not. Eurosport's John Watson, former winner of the British Grand Prix gives MotorSport his verdict. Damon Hill Formula One's Gazza? Much has been made of Damon being a new man this season.

XXXIII Italian Grand Prix

Grand slam for B.R.M. MONZA, September16th This year the Automobile Club of Milan made two major changes to the Italian Grand Prix, both of them admirable ones. The first was to abandon the concrete banked track and hold the Grand Prix on the road circuit only and the second was to increase the race length to almost 500 kilometres.

48th French Grand Prix

A Race of Surprises Rouen-Les Essarts, July 8th. Every five years the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. leaves the Reims circuit and is held at Rouen-Les-Essarts, having done so in 1952, 1957 and now in 1962. The Rouen circuit does not have the amenities nor the grandness and atmosphere of Reims, but the circuit itself is one of the best in Europe from the point of view of driving and spectating. All the...
