Stow away in front of Bugatti hordes

British racers Jeff Stow and Nick Faure were two of the stars of the Circuit des Remparts meeting at Angouleme.

Matters of moment

The Le Mans 24 Hour Race

Datsun 240Z

Recognised as the world’s first credible Japanese sports car, the durable 240Z is still sought after, even if the period PVC trim is looking a little passé… By any rational criteria it looked fabulous, but so what?
