The A.D.A.C. 1,000-Kilometre Race—Nurburgring

Aston Martin's Greatest Victory Adenau, May 26th. With a race of the nature of the 1,000-kilometres at Nurburgring the practice periods are more in the nature of proving and testing periods than practice as applied to a Grand Prix race.

Petrol Problems

The rich petroleum industry, automatically associated with tough 'oil barons' in the Ewing image, palatial office premises, and understandable jealousy over brand names, has a lucrative customer in the world's vehicle users. In the main, it can be said that it has served us well. Even before it saw the enormous profits that could be earned it made it possible for autocarists to buy the essential...

Club News

We hear... Flt.-Lt. Protheroe now has his Type 37 Bugatti on the road after its major "blow-up" at the 1947 Gransden meeting. It now has full-pressure lubrication, and new valve end-caps of KE 226 and its owner uses it as a completely reliable hack, finding its performance distinctly refreshing after ownership of a F.I.A.T. 500 and a 4-1/2-litre Bentley.

Mille Miglia News.

Mile Miglia News. The Mille Miglia continues to be the finest sports car race in the world. NO finer test of men and machines has yet been devised, and its single lap of 1.000 miles puts it above all other races of this category.

Cecil Clutton crystal gazes

In this extremely erudite and absorbing article Cecil Clutton does his share of gazing into the future – a habit which excellent war-news encourages. His suggested designs have their claims carefully explained, and Clutton also offers us a new basis of comparing existing sports cars. – Ed. I spent a day of my last leave stirring up my motoring file with a slide rule, with a view to ascertaining...
