GKN Daily Express International Trophy

Fittipaldi wins after Hailwood retires Silverstone, April 23rd. In years gone by the Silverstone International Trophy meeting was THE non-championship Formula One event of the season. The entry was often comparable with almost any Grand Prix and Silverstone's fast circuit provided some fierce and memorable battles. It just isn't like that any more and this year's event attracted the smallest...

Maserali 250Fs Sir, The May issue of Motor Sport contains a report on the recent VSCC meeting at Silverstone. In it you compare the performance of Neil Corner's "proper" (as you term it) 250 Maserati with that of my own 250F and the similar car owned by Nick Mason. This very clearly implies that my car is, therefore, not "proper". In the context of historic cars this can only be taken to mean...

Summers' Cars

It was while reading, ten years ago, that very entertaining book about life at Rolls-Royce by the late Mr. W. A. Robotham (Constable, 1970), that I came to realise what an enthusiastic motorist the late Mr. R. F. (Dick) Summers had been. It is in this book, "Silver Ghosts and Silver Dawn", that the description appears of the series of match-races staged on a private road in their steel works in...

Video: HGPCA Historic Race of the Year (56 minutes, HGPCA, c/o Totnes Motor Museum, Totnes, Devon. £49.95). October's 50th anniversary of the last Grand Prix at Donington Park was marked by an adventurous promotion by the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association — nothing less than a 100-mile race, the most demanding challenge most of these cars had faced since their youth. The race was very...

On Your Marques...

There can be no debate that, in only two years, the Christie's Historic Festival at Silverstone has firmly established itself as the world's foremost historic meeting. This year, its reputation was enhanced still further, a crowd of over 27,000 providing solid endorsement of the event's appeal and popularity. That the event should have overtaken other well-established meetings such as the...

On The Road

The Renault 16TS • B.R.D.C. Clubmen's Championship • A 700-c.c. Estate Car • Bugatti O.C.

Return to splendour

The announcement that the VSCC hopes to have an Auto Union actually racing at its Richard Seaman Trophies Meeting at that so appropriate circuit Donington Park, is exciting news which should draw in the spectators. The car is one of the D-type Auto-Unions found in the USSR by Mr and Mrs Karassik, and bought recently by a new owner, after restoration by Crosthwaite & Gardiner in 1993. It would...
