VSCC Oulton Park (June 16th)

Martin Morris was the outstanding driver at this sunny Seaman Trophies Meeting, with both the Seaman Memorial trophy races. He won the Historic race in his ERA, leading from lap 2 after the Bentley-Napier had out-accelerated him. Patrick Lindsay in his ERA "Remus" was in hot pursuit and Arnold-Forster in his ERA got past the aero-engined car on lap 4. The Bentley-Napier then ran out of fuel and...

Letters

Letter of the month Trying to tackle the wrong problem I read with interest of the idea to end the World Endurance Championship season at Le Mans. I fully understand the thinking, as the remainder of the season is something of an anti-climax. It didn’t used to be this way in the heyday of Group C, however. After the 24 Hours we had classic races at the Nürburgring, Spa, Brands Hatch and Fuji –...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

Goodwood on Whit-Monday

GOOD weather, good racing, and a good crowd summarises the B.A.R.C. Whitsun Meeting. Racing opened with a 10-lap F.3 race for the Reg. Parnell Trophy,. which Pike threw away by losing his Brabham-Ford at St. Mary's on the first lap.

Readers letters

Ten kilos of 4-star? Sir, You make a very valid point in January's editorial. Metrication makes calculation so much easier, but we must choose our arms of measure with care. The gallon, and litre, as a unit of measure of petroleum fuels it always been a bit of a nonsense, unless it is related to temperature. A wise man he who fills up first thing in the morning and orders the fuel oil delivered...

Letters from Readers

Type Approval Your gloomy views on the building of specials are, I believe, justified only if the builder is starting from scratch, that is constructing an entirely new chassis, suspension, steering lay-out and the like. When the regulations* to which you refer were in draft the Historic Vehicles Committee did not give their minds to specials as such. We were however worried about another aspect...

Wrong Man(n)

Sir, It is relatively unimportant, but for the record, Patrick Lindsay did not drive our ERA R9B in the "Pre-War Allcomers" at the July VSCC Silverstone meeting. I was the driver on that occasion! My brother Peter lost his second place in the Allcomers by seeing the chequered flag on lap 14 being got out for Simon Philips, and then easing off! He thought the race was over a lap earlier....

Matters of moment

Anticipation Last month we referred to the greater variety which should enliven the 1965 motor-racing season. Certainly it is possible to look forward to this year's races with considerable anticipation. In the field of Grand Prix racing there is interest in speculating on how effective the new flat-16 Coventry-Climax engine will be in the hands of those fortunate enough to acquire one of these...

Mexican Grand Prix

Mexico City, November 3rd, 1968. The final round of the World Championship Grand Prix season for 1968 took place at the Mexico City circuit in the outskirts of this huge city. The cars had been sent down by road from the U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen which took place four weeks earlier. The delay between the United States and Mexican Grands Prix was more than usual this year, due to the...

VETERAN-EDWARDIAN-VINTAGE

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters A VARIETY OF ANCIENT THINGS LATE APRIL and early May gave me an interesting variety of veteran and vintage happenings to attend to. It began one Thursday when I set off in the Reliant Scimitar GTE to intercept St. John Cousins Nixon on his 1,060-mile drive round Britain, sponsored by British Leyland, in the actual 1899 single-cylinder Wolseley which ran, as No...
