Guards Trophy

Brands Hatch THE B.R. & S.C.C.'s International meeting at Brands Hatch on August Bank Holiday Monday, run over the 2.6-mile long circuit was a pleasant contrast to last year's event—blessed with very good weather, which a very large crowd thoroughly appreciated while watching an interesting programme. Entries for the main race of the day, the 50-lap Guards International Trophy race for sports...

And that reminds me...

Even tiny Jersey has its racing heritage - and heroes Growing up in Jersey with its 40mph limit I was a little short of local heroes; but acclaimed Chevron racer Digby Martland lived there, as did Mike Salmon, who is married to ace 1950s Aston racer Jean Bloxam. Michael’s career was long and illustrious: his irst Le Mans was in 1962, his last in 1984 in the ferocious Group C Nimrod Aston. He then...

Endurance racing review

FOLLOWING the postponement of the races at Brands Hatch and Mugello, the World Endurance Championship finally took off at Monza on April 18th. Those early events were doomed from the very beginning for they did not form qualifying rounds of the Manufacturers' Championship and did not attract the interest of the major teams like Porsche or Ford. That, combined with their positions on the...

Guards International Trophy

For the last few years the big B.R.S.C.C. sports-car meeting on the Monday of the August Bank Holiday weekend has provided the best racing in the country at the time. This season's event was well up to standard, fine weather and an excellent entry for all five races on the programme resulting in an even larger turnout of spectators than usual—over 30,000 being estimated by some people. The main...

"We didn't just talk about doing Le Mans, we actually did it"

Robin Hamilton took Aston Martin back to La Sarthe in the 1970s and ’80s, but works support ultimately worked against him…By Richard Heseltine The rolling Derbyshire countryside before us stretches as far as the eye can strain, the murky months of spring doing nothing to dampen our host’s enthusiasm. Robin Hamilton is outlining his most recent endeavour: a house build on this very plot. Even in...

HSCC Brands Hatch

Fast becoming one of the highlights of the racing calender is the two day HSCC meeting held on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit. There is so much variety which, allied to a full programme of races and generally very good grids makes it just the sort of meeting to take non-enthusiast friends for a first taste of the sport. It was unfortunate that the rains came on the Saturday but if you're...

The Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival

In the end, it surpassed the wildest expectations. Fifty years to the day after its first meeting, motor racing returned to Goodwood with an event none of the 80,000 spectators would argue was not the greatest historic race meeting of all time. The restoration of the buildings, the period livery of staff and traditional BARC and drivers' cricket match are images of an event which recaptured the...

Austrian 500-Kilometre Race

ZELTWEG, AUSTRIA, September 14th. IN spite of being limited to the small 3.2-kilometre L-shaped circuit on Zeltweg aerodrome, the Austrian Automobile Club courageously organised a straight-forward 500-kilometre (300 miles) race for Group 4 homologated sports cars (50 off). They invited an interesting entry of twenty-two starters, in three groups, over 2,000 c.c., up to 2,000 c.c. and up to 5,300...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...
