"Imagine being protested by your own team..."

In an extract from John Surtees’ new book, we look back at the 1963 and ’64 seasons. The Englishman might have become the first racer to take world titles on two wheels and four, but it wasn’t all plain sailing The option of going back to Italy had been hard to resist, but before this I took part in the six-race Tasman series, starting off the season well with two wins and a second place in the...

Ian Appleyard Ian Appleyard BSc, arguably Britain's most successful international rally driver of the early post-war years, died in early June.

In 1949 he put up best performance in the Alpine...

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette IT IS always a pleasure to encounter almost-original historic cars. So I was fortunate last month to drive Peter Green's 1933 K3 MG, which he part-shares with David Dutton. This is one afoot very many of these classic MGs, still in more or less unchanged guise since the days of its considerable and successful pre-war racing career. MG...

The rise of Fall

From Yorkshire and a Mini to a GM competitions boss. Tony Fall tells John Davenport how he did it Tony Fall was a rally phenomenon in the 1960s.

Readers letters

A flight to remember Sir, Norma Henderson’s letter about Webbair brought back memories of a journey to the 1960 Portuguese Grand Prix.

My hero -- by Stuart Turner

My hero: There's only one: Stirling Moss. He was making the headlines when I started out in this sport and I also had the privilege of watching him from behind the fences at Aintree when he beat Fangio in 1955.

Fitting words for Bruce

On the day before the Goodwood Revival I drove the short distance from home to the circuit where I have spent so many happy days over the past six decades. Madame Mégane knows the way too, her turbocharged diesel pulling us effortlessly up and over the Sussex Downs. Tucked away under the trees on the edge of the paddock is a memorial garden, the centrepiece of which is a headstone inscribed with...
