Letters from Readers

N.B. -Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and MOTOR SPORT does not necessarily associate itself with them. -Ed.Bring Back the E-type Sir, I have enjoyed the outpourings of your diminutive scribe D.S.J. for many years, especially with regard to his driving of Jaguars, which have been my own transport for 23 years.

Glorious Goodwood

Take a stately home, a dedicated team and add the finest seledion of historic racing cars ever assembled, and you have the ingredients for an unforgettable motorsport weekend. Only one thing could have made the second Goodwood Festival of Speed better for me and that would have been the presence of Daniel Sexton Gurney at the wheel of one of his fabulous Eagle Weslakes now owned by Miles Collier...

Bristish aces star at Californian Ferrari festival

Laguna Seca | Aug 13-15 The 31st running of the USA's top historic race meeting drew over 400 entries to California's Laguna Seca circuit.

The classic restorers Hall & Hall

Hall & Hall On a windswept Lincolnshire Airflied, once the home of BRM, the Shriek of a supercharged V16 can still sometimes be heard. But there's no supernatural agency at work: 20 years after the team folded, Gordon Cruickshank visits a firm which is perpetuating the legend The instructions say, 'Turn left at Owen's Barn'.

Signed, sealed and reliveried

When I was wittering last month at bygone Formula 1 heroes for talking BS about use of illegal Formula 1 engines, a reader confessed he’d quite enjoyed the piece despite my “agonising detail”. That’s an inconvenience about attempting not only to establish the truth, but also to be seen to be doing so. It’s necessary to consider all evidence to the contrary.

Fabulous Fourth Goodwood

It's now the greatest historic meeting of all, says Alan Cox - but can Lord March's team keep it up?
