IT'S ALL HAPPENING . . . . There are compensations about being a heavily-taxed, Police-hounded motoring enthusiast. For instance, there is so much to do, so many diverse events to attend, that boredom is kept effectively at bay. Races of all kinds happen every summer week-end, with the March F1 car upholding its promise, although harried by Jack Brabham, with Rindt's old Lotus snatching a last-...

The Bugatti O.C. at Silverstone

R. C. Symondson Wins 48-Mile Final in His 575 Bugatti The first of the Club Meetings at Silverstone took place in perfect weather on June 18th, organised by the Bugatti Owners' Club, and all the fun and games of club days at Brooklands and Donington before the war were re-enacted again at the new R.A.C. circuit. It was a most enjoyable day. The invited one-make clubs co-operated warmly and an...

Suggestion This year of Jubilee has served as a reminder that no adequate history of the Motor Industry has yet been written. The task of compiling such a history, admittedly, would be involved and arduous, and much of the required information would have to be supplied by the manufacturers themselves. This leads to the suggestion that if individual manufacturers would undertake to compile...

World Rally Championship: Safari Rally

In developed Europe, much of a team's strategic resources may be buried deep in concrete jungles, never actually seen, whilst even their en route service points are very often in secure garages from which prying eyes are kept well away by doors which are slammed shut after the cars enter. But in the wide expanse of Africa, everything is clear for all to see; the fleets of mobile workshops, chase...

The clubs at Silverstone

Maidstone & Mid-Kent MC chose delightful weather for its Silverstone race meeting on May 24th, which started late, but was run off efficiently, over the "long" Club circuit. The seven-lap 1,100-cc sports-car race should have been a gift for Len Gibbs' Riley, but it was not on form, so C le S Metcalfe won after a steady drive in his Persil-uniform and Balilla Fiat, Gibbs second, Wilson's "...

Books for Christmas

"Cape Cold to Cape Hot," by Richard Pape. 256 pp. 9 in by 53/4 in. (Oldhams Press Ltd., 96 Long Acre, London, WC2. 18s.) This is a book by a journalist rather than a writer, a record-breaker rather than a traveller. Those who might be misled by the title into expecting a genuine travel book will be disappointed, but those who like a racy action story will find it to their taste, even though they...

Victorious Equipment

G.E. Ansell's E.R.A. had its internals lubricated with Essolube for the British Empire Trophy race, which it won, and ran on Dunlop wheels and tyres. This car and the next three finishers in this race had Lodge plugs fired by Lucas ignition equipment, and were slowed for the corners by Ferodo-lined Girling brakes. The winner and 3rd and 4th home had Luvax-Girling dampers to control the suspension...

TO celebrate its 40th birthday and the 70th anniversary of the historic 1,000-Mile Trial the Veteran CC is staging a very exciting and strenuous event, which commences on May 1st. It is a reasonable approximation to the pioneer Trial but whereas that event was obviously confined to pre-1901 autocars, the 1970 event will include cars of up to 1914, the most intriguing of which is Philip Mann's...
