Jim Russell wins wet British Empire Trophy Race

The British Empire Trophy, one of Britain's oldest races has been held yearly except for the war years since 1932, but has seldom proved a racing or commercial success. The latest in the series, held as a F2 race on Saturday, April 11th, did little to disprove this reputation. The first Empire Trophy race was won by John Cobb in the 10-1/2-litre Delage on the Brooklands Outer Circuit at 126.36 m....

"Ban the Belgian GP"

DSJ comments on the cancellation of this year's Spa race This year is the 75th anniversary of the The Royal Automobile Club of Belgium, and they were forced to celebrate it without the traditional Belgian Grand Prix. This was no direct fault of the RACB but the culmination of a lot of hysterics and well-meaning actions by people and bodies who were never heard of in 1896 when the RACB was formed...

7th Grand Prix Rouen-les-Essarts

Another F.2 Win for Moss Rouen, July 12th. This year the Rouen race up-graded itself slightly by holding a Formula 2 race as well as its annual sports-car event, though it always seems a pity that a full Grand Prix for Formula 1 cars is no longer held on this wonderful circuit, which is surely one of the best in France. However, the Automobile Club Normand are not greatly blessed financially and...

101 damnations?

Ken Tyrrell outlines some potential pitfalls ahead for the Stewart-Ford dream team They once formed a sporting partnership to rival the likes of Lillee and Thomson, Torvill and Dean, or Clough and Taylor. Three times in five years Ken Tyrrell and Jackie Stewart proved their combination to be the best in the motorsport world. Two decades on, they are still friends. Soon they will be rivals, too....

The 20th International British Empire Trophy Meeting

Moss wins with works Aston Martin and equals Gerard's record Held on April 12th at its now traditional venue, the most excellent 2.76-mile road circuit at Oulton Park, Cheshire, the 20th International British Empire Trophy race provided an unexpectedly easy win for Stirling Moss, in a works-entered 3.9-litre DBR2 Aston Martin, after mechanical trouble had eliminated the only effective opposition...

Lunch with SIR JOHN WHITMORE In more ways than one, Sir John Whitmore is different. Since this monthly series began in Motor Sport six years ago I've been lucky enough to take some 80 motor sporting personalities to lunch, and I don't think any of them has had so short a racing career. Probably none has had so strange a life since walking away from the sport, either. But John makes a worthy and...

Club News

We Hear A Bangor garage apparently has in hand a 500-c.c. "Special" with d.t. Douglas engine and Austin Seven transmission. W. A. Wiseman has a 1920 D-type "23/60" Vauxhall (with an absolutely unchipped starter ring, incidentally!), and he hopes to restore it to very good order indeed. In 1946 he bought a 1927 Armstrong-Siddeley Fifteen tourer for £45 and in 10,000 miles the only trouble...

"Marathon In The Dust"

"Marathon In The Dust", by Innes Ireland. 208 pp. 8 7/8 in. x 5 7/8 in. (William Kimber & Co. Ltd., 6 Queen Anne's Gate, London, SW1. 36s.) Having chided my friend Innes Ireland so frequently about his promised book not appearing, I am obliged to refer to "Marathon In The Dust" now that it has made the review lists. The trouble is that it is sadly out of date, the Daily Express London-Sydney...

Innes Ireland drives brilliantly to win B.R.D.C International Trophy race for Lotus. Lotus also win F.J. race. Salvadori (Jaguar) vanquishes Moss in saloon car contest.

  The B.R.D.C. successfully put on a very full day's racing at Silverstone, but unfortunately a gloom had been cast over the meeting by the fatal accident to Harry Schell who, in the rain,  lost control of his Cooper at Abbey Curve and, hitting the marker wall as the car slid backwards, was thrown out and killed instantly. During the wet practice session Moss "lost" his Cooper as he accelerated...

1959 British Grand Prix race report - A walk-over for British cars

  As now seems traditional the British Grand Prix never rests in the same place two years running, and this time it was the B.A.R.C. who organised the race, using Mrs Topham's Aintree Stadium for the venue. The entry was a strange one for a World Championship meeting, for the Ferrari team were prevented from appearing by labour disputes in Italy, though the Scuderia Centro-Sud managed to get over...
