Bernie the team player

Mr Bernard Charles Ecclestone has many claims to fame – not least as a serial Formula 1 team owner. His earliest foray was in part with his great friend – and brilliant driver at the time – Stuart Lewis-Evans. Ecclestone bought two B-Type Connaughts at that delightful team’s closure sale in 1957, and he ran them in New Zealand and then in Formula 1 into 1958. He entered them for that year’s...

Swan Song

The Connaught Story Part 4 It is ironic that the Connaught Type B was the company's most successful car, for it was conceived as a stop-gap, against the time when a suitable engine would allow an advanced, rear-engined, monocoque design to be completed. It is ironic, too, that the team's most stirring performances should have come in the final twelve months or so of its existence when its...

Paul Emery

Paul Emery, who died, aged 75, on February 3, was perhaps the most ingenius and prolific special builder in history. He raced an Emeryson at Brooklands and there was a long, varied succession of Emerysons after the war. He built several fwd 500cc F3 cars, raced his own F1 car throughout the 1950s and even qualified ahead of several Maseratis for the 1956 British GP. A batch of Emeryson F1 cars...

The Emeryson Special

A very advanced Amateur-Built 1,100 c.c. Racing Car that was successful on its first appearance. Two-stage supercharging and independent suspension front and back. The Emerys, father and son, have produced in the latest Emeryson Special a racing car of which a specialised factory might well be proud. Working in a small shed at Maidenhead they have evolved a 1,100-c.c. engine with two-stage...

The 2-1/2-litre V8 Daimler Dart

Something truly new... At long last something refreshingly new is to emerge from a British factory, for last month, at the New York Show, the Daimler Dart made its debut. This new sports car is the work of Edward Turner, managing director of the Automotive Division of the B.S.A. Group. It is revolutionary in respect of its V8 engine and plastic body. The Daimler Company has made sports cars...

Cult heroes

Bill McGovern The forgotten man among tin-top aristocracy, Bill McGovern deserves veneration if only for being the first driver to win the BTCC title three years on the trot. Starting out at Woburn hillclimb in a Vauxhall VX 4/90 in late 1963, he was resolutely trounced by a Mini Cooper S. So he went out and bought one of his own and took FTD at a Brands Hatch sprint a weekend later. A year on he...

MOTOR SHOW 82 It used to be the case that the launching of a new model actually took place on the manufacturer's stand at one of the important Motor Shows. Today. not only have those in the trade already seen, and sometimes driven, the supposedly secret product, but the general public too will have been fed more-or-less unofficial leakages, together with grainy photographs of prototypes in...

Racing At Whitsun

THE Whit-Saturday Goodwood Meeting of the B.A.R.C. attracted a relatively small crowd, perhaps on account of memories of the Silverstone congestion of a week earlier, possibly because of the Derby. The atmosphere of pre-war Brooklands was most enjoyable and the Sussex constabulary were ready and willing to exercise skill in coping with traffic congestion, should it have arisen. The main...

A READER WHO HAS ACQUIRED a Buckler chassis once used by Paul Emery would like to know its subsequent history; it was thought to be possibly the one acquired by Jenks, but as Emery used a 2-litre Aka engine and DSJ wanted the car for its 4-litre Duesenberg engine, these could not be one and the same. Letters can be forwarded.

Springtime activities in the workshops

As Easter approaches, and Goodwood opens the international racing calendar as far as Britain is concerned, there is more and more work going on in the various racing departments, and new cars begin to near completion while old ones are being finished off after a winter overhaul. In the middle of March, in time to get these words into print on April 1st, we made a visit to some of the premises...
