Hometown hero

In this The Age of the Celebrity, Mario Andretti is that rarest of public figures: a bona fide hero. For he is more than the 1978 world champion, a four time national champion and the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500 and an F1 race, not to mention the oldest to win an IndyCar race (nor that his exploits have been chronicled by MOTOR SPORT for nearly half its 70 years!): he...

Reflections – Hamilton’s dilemma: McLaren or Mercedes? – Why Monza’s atmosphere still thrills 42 years on – In response to Grosjean misconduct at Spa – Hero Gurney honoured at Goodwood Revival Ah, Lewis, Lewis… In a week in which Sid Watkins died, and Alex Zanardi won two gold medals at the Paralympics, it wasn’t easy to care too much about how many millions – and from whom – will be coming...

Royal Rolls-Royce Motor Cars by Andrew Pastouna, 223 pp. 11in x 7-3/4in. Osprey Publishing, 59 Grosvenor Street, London, W1X 9DA. £25.00. For years, the British Royal Family favoured Daimlers.

Veteran to classic: Brighton Run

Brighton express In spite of its enormous popularity, the RAC London-Brighton run event get far less reportage than it once did. This year Eoin Young in "Automotor" advised any VIPs who had never been on a veteran before to go to Brighton by train! Motor Sport is far more enthusiastic. This time, as the early motoring writers might have put it, "I was fortunate in being invited to go down as a...

A stormy Brighton Run

In spite of floods and a strong wind that tried to blow down the finish arch on Madeira Drive, that great adventure, the 2000 London Brighton Run for pre-1905 cars was its usual success. The entry of 432 from all over the world is remarkable. Oldest vehicle was the 1875 Grenville steam carriage. It was reported to have reached as far as Crawley by midday and finished the 57 miles in 8% hours, in...

The Real Story Of The Hudlass Specials

Some time ago a MOTOR SPORT reader discovered the remains of a Hudlass Special and enquired what we remembered about it. We filled in as much as we could. Fortunately our remarks were seen by John Hudlass, whose father Leonard, at the age of 90, still recalls the cars his family built, and he has kindly sent us the following account of the Hudlass family and the Hudlass Specials. Felix Isherwood...

Day of thunder

Castrol R hanging heavy in the air and the drone of racing cars balanced high on the banking — evocative sensations for a Bank Holiday Monday. Organised by Stanley Mann and Moy Motorsport to benefit the Brooklands Museum, and sponsored by NGK Spark Plugs, this Action Day was entirely non-competitive, but allowed a brief glimpse of great days at the Weybridge track, transported to the modem test-...

Brooklands Notes

Some 12 days before the Brooklands Society held its annual reunion, with runs up the test hill and sprints along the runway, the Brooklands Museum Trust had a sober, black-tie, evening, also to celebrate the track's 85th year. HRH Prince Michael of Kent, the museum's patron, announced that Nigel Mansell has associated himself with the cause, and that the executor of Hugh Hunter's estate had...

EVERY SHOW NEEDS A STAR Never been to Indianapolis? You must. It is one of the great motor racing occasions. In the spring of 19931 was working on the first Goodwood Festival of Speed. Seven days a week, eight if possible, day and night. Then, out of the blue, Lord March asked me to go to the Indianapolis 500 where we would be guests of the Newman-Haas team. Part of the plan was to study the...
