Book reviews

Ken Miles by Art Evans ISBN 0 9705073 3 Published by Photo Data Research, $49 It was clear to all who watched that Ken Miles could race. He was better still as a test driver. But it was also clear to all who met him that he was always honest, in a brutal sort of way. Commendably, family friend Art Evans’ book doesn’t hide from that. There are contributions from those who met Ken, from when...

Now we know

Sir, Bob Burnard, one of our most promising sports car drivers, raced with considerable skill and generalship in several events last season to win the Veedol Motor Racing Competition and its major award, the most advanced Formula Junior Racing car obtainable, a Lotus 27. Since then, discounting two appearances early in the year with his Ace-Bristol, now sold, Bob Burnard (and his racing car)...

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

Lotus 20/22

With Formula Junior regaining popularity, now’s the time to invest in one of Colin Chapman’s creations. Which type will you go for?By Richard Heseltine It always was a catchy title. Fifty years young, Formula Junior is undergoing something of a renaissance, an under-the-radar second – or possibly third – coming with packed grids attracting newbies and old hands alike to entry-level historic...

Forever with blue genes

Alan Mann Racing’s cars are famous for being cloaked in red and gold – but a strong association with Ford, now as in period, is equally symbolic. With the team on the verge of scaling back, we took a lingering glance at a fleet that will soon partially be dismantledWriter: Gordon Cruickshank Photographer: Matthew Howell It fits, somehow. Henry Mann, son of 1970s racing team boss Alan Mann, has a...

Little cars, big grids

Sir, I can only marvel at your dexterity in managing to compile a 10-page Historic Season Preview in the April edition of Motor Sport - without more than the briefest passing reference to the 2003 Historic Championship of the Year. I am speaking of Historic Formula Junior, in which one can - quite literally - race every weekend between April and October, and which has a pool of over 200 cars...

A mini adventure

40 years ago Goodwood held its last Formula One race. It was the final year of the 1.5-litre formula, which despite its critics provided some of the finest racing ever at the Sussex track. By Gordon Cruickshank. Photography by James Mann.   Picture it. The FIA has just decreed that racing's top formula will now run with 2-litre engines. Instantly the field is open to a stack of small teams, and...

Broadley speaking

It is hard to pinpoint precisely when Eric Broadley went from being a special builder to becoming a constructor, but in 1958 he appeared with his Lola-Climax Mk1 and at the beginning of the 1959 season there were four of them and he was on his way. At the time 1100cc sports-car racing in Britain mast serious business, the equivalent of Formula Three today, and Lotus dominated by running works...

Continental notes
