Ford's Sabbatical

It is just over 20 years since Ford's fortunes were rejuvenated by the introduction of the o.h.v. Ford Anglia. Since then the Dagenham end of the Detroit-based company has won just about everything worthwhile in racing and rallying, a motor sporting policy which has transformed the company's image and sales. Most of the successes have come from the Anglia's successor, the Escort, introduced in...

Rally review

The R.A.C. Rally of Great Britain As it had been arranged that I should cover this year's R.A.C. Rally by occupying the hot seat in a works Saab driven by the Finnish Rally Champion, Simo Lampinen, Rally Review for this month was to have been an account of the rally seen from that point of view. I take little pleasure in reporting that we only managed to complete about one-fifth of the route...

Matters Of Moment

THE SURVIVAL OF THE SPORTS CAR In a World of increasing automation and a softening human race it is a relief to know that the sports car shows no evidence of dying out. Indeed, some promising new sports cars were a feature of the London Motor Show, which should be a cause for congratulation to those who enjoy fresh air, recognise that, properly driven, such responsive cars represent the safest as...

The R.A.C. Rally

Tough 2,000 mile event around Great Britain ruined by protests. This year's R.A.C. International Rally started from Blackpool with 131 competitors (15 non-starters). A feature of the event was the pains taken by the R.A.C. to avoid interference with the public as the cars passed through built-up areas, but, on the other hand, the crews had to spend three nights out of bed, starting at Blackpool...

The worst car I ever drove - Axle tramp

When the steering wheel came off, it still steered from the rear...John Davenport hears about a saloon with an attitude problem. Ove Andersson is now best known as the President of Team Toyota Europe and the mastermind behind Toyota's six World Rally Championship titles - two manufacturer's and four driver's - and this year's brilliant Le Mans GT debut with the Toyota GT-One. Before that, he had...

A Touch of the Midnight sun

In the past, the Swedish Rally to the Midnight Sun has often clashed with the dates of the Coupe des Alpes so that, although both have been qualifying rounds in the European Rally Championship, it has been virtually impossible to compete in both. This year, there was just over a week between them, which meant that, apart from consideration of whether this made reconnaissance of both routes...

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...

The Full Monty

The modern Monte Carlo rally may be a carefully organised World Championship round, but past events have taken competitors to the limits of motoring. Monte survivor John Davenport remembers. The Monte Carlo Rally is not the longest, nor the oldest, nor yet the toughest motor rally in the world, but it is without doubt, the best known and the one most likely to stir some kind of story to the...

Matters of Moment

Saab Wins the R.A.C. Rally The 1960 R.A.C. Rally, which determined the destiny of both the European Rally Championship (won by Mercedes-Benz) and the Ladies' Rally Championship (won jointly by Pat Moss and Ann Wisdom driving B.M.C. products), was a generally well-run but not very exciting event ably organised by hard-working Jack Kemsley, who secured a bright but not vivid feather for the R.A.C.'...
