Grand Prix Notebook

Malaysia, Bahrain and China Formula 1 left its muted hybrid trail through the early-season far stretches of the globe: amid the rubber plantations of Malaysia, the oil-producing region of the Gulf and the ongoing industrialisation of China.

Goodwood Festival of Speed

"Just look at that!” gasps Derek Bell, diverting my attention from the startline to the view on our right. Beyond the straw bales and the distant treetops, the giant Vulcan bomber floats magnificently into sight, so sedately it seems inconceivable it won’t plummet. We’re mesmerised, and for a moment I forget where I am. So too has Derek, it seems, until our attention is snapped back to why we’re...

LETTERS from READERS

Sir, Surely Mr. A. K. Clerk's letter is a rather unjustifiable attack on Mr. Aidington for writing in praise of a car in which he is interested. The power unit of the Frazer-Nash may be out of date, but in 1937 the 2-litre 328 F.N.-B.M.W. was timed at 103 m.p.h. against the 115 m.p.h. of the 1951 3i-litre Jaguar XK 120, and it was also two seconds faster from 0-70 m.p.h.. than the larger car....
