Alpine Rally The rather innocent title "Alpine Rally" in fact implies one of the most strenuous tests there is of the modern motor-car. The Alpine Rally is, to the summer, what the Monte Carlo Rally is to the winter, in this respect. Only the necessity to close last month's issue for press before results could be obtained has reduced the amount of coverage Motor Sport would otherwise give to this...

Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

The B.AR.C. All-Sports-Cars Meeting at Goodwood

Duncan Hamilton (D-type Jaguar) Wins 21-Lap Johnson's Challenge Trophy Race A sun drenched Whit Monday rendered the B.A.R.C. International (sic) Goodwood Meeting, which, a vintage-car race apart, was confined to sports cars, exceedingly pleasant. Duncan Hamilton's D-type Jaguar led throughout to win the Johnson's (Wax Polish) Challenge Trophy Race very comfortably from Berry's similar Jaguar,...

Something different

The Alpine Rally A NUMBER of my friends kept disappearing, saying, "We're going on holiday," and when they returned they talked about the change from the normal routine of their lives being as good as a rest cure, and kept asking me when I was going on holiday. Now, for as long as I can remember, my life has been one long holiday, watching motor races every weekend, all over Europe, enjoying...

Matters of Moment

The Monte-Carlo Rally in Retrospect The 1958 Monte Carlo Rally, thanks to seasonal weather in Europe and England, turned out to be a thoroughly tough, proving contest, from which France proved victorious through the medium of a meticulously prepared and superbly driven Category 2 Renault Dauphine. So severe were the ice and snow that the Rally was very definitely decided on the road and choice...

Vintage week-end

(August 13/14th) AUGUST 13/14th was a vintage week-end for me. On the Saturday I drove to Silverstone in the comfort and luxury of a 3-litre Rover Mk. III coupe (of which, more in the next issue) to see the Austin Healey/M.G./Mini Seven Clubs' B.M.C. Sports Car Parade, and some very exciting racing. Accepting a lift across the track with John Eason-Gibson (who also favours the 3-litre Rover), I...

Around and about

Redex Economy Run  Traditionally, the Hants & Berks MC ran another Economy Run this year, much in the former format, thanks to sponsorship from Redex, who in return injected 5 c.c.-per-gallon of their upper-cylinder lubricating additive into the fuel tanks of the 40 competing cars. This was no petrol-conserving dawdle. The route of more than 1,000 miles took in the Wrynose Pass in the Lake...

The M.C.C. National Rally (Nov. 10th-13th)

Mk. VII Jaguar Driven by E. R. Parsons and Mrs. J. G. M. Vann Wins Arduous Event. Morgan Plus Four and Triumph TR2 Finish Second and Third. This year's M.C.C. Rally, sponsored by Redex, attracted an entry of 385 cars, and was in every way every worthwhile event. The entry (not quite a rally record, for the last London M.C. London Rally had an entry of 401, in spite of which the programme called...

LADY competition drivers

LADV competition drivers [The women did pretty well in motor racing before the war and by 1936 even the cautious Brooklands' authorities permitted them to compete on a level basis with the men. There was Gwenda Hawkes who was faster round Montlhery in the 2-litre Derby-Miller than John Cobb was round Brooklands in 24 litres of Napier-Railton, Kay Petre who looked exceedingly feminine but tamed...

Matters of Moment

Come along Britain! Mercédès-Benz, with the aid of two Englishmen, have won Italy's Mille Miglia, one of the world's toughest motor races. The German firm spared no effort or expense to achieve this victory, as will be apparent from the account of the race published in this issue of Motor Sport. This month another important sports-car classic takes place in France, the Le Mans 24-Hour Race of...
