The Other Cars of Brian Lister

"In the fifties," says Brian Lister, "you still had two distinct types of successful racing car designers. There were the designer / artists, such as John Cooper and myself, people with an engineering background who designed intuitively, and the designer / scientists such as Colin Chapman. I happen to have been involved in racing at the right time and when we had to make the decision to quit, in...

Rally review

Toughest of them all The Liège If you were to ask Peter Hughes and Mike Armstrong which was most difficult, the East African Safari or the Liège-Sofia-Liège, the answer might be a straightforward vote for the Liège or a rather sheepish grin. The reason is that whereas Mike and Peter finished third and first in works Cortina GTs on the Safari neither they nor any of the other works Fords -finished...

ivory coast rally

Ivory Coast CONVERSATION after the Sanremo Rally seemed to centre not on the World Championship title duel between Stig Blomqvist and Markku Alen, but on the remarkable way in which An Vatanen and Terry Harryman had driven one of Peugeot's four-wheel-drive cars to its second major victory, trouncing both the Audis and the Lancias. The new car had twice made an appearance, and had twice got among...

East African Safari

Easter in Kenya means Safari-time. The East African Safari Rally; the name itself chills spines as you imagine man and machine pitting skills against the ragged car-eating terrains of Tanzania and Kenya or the precipitous escarpments of the mighty mountain Kilimanjaro. All very romantic really, but in fact the myths that surround this great event are slowly being unravelled. To sum it up, the one...

THE East African Safari comes round every year and with monotous regularity reduces a field of about a hundred cars down to what can only be described as a handful. The car that emerges on top is not always from the same manufacturer, for in the past Mercedes, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Ford and now Volvo have supplied the winner but the high average speeds over the local roads have always required a...

The East African Safari

Another East African Safari has run its course, and this time Fords have apparently confounded their critics by not only winning the event outright but backing it up by taking the Manufacturers' Team Prize, the index of price/performance award, and having six of their cars in the twenty-one finishers. Another pointer to the extent of their success was that these were the only examples of British-...

Brighton Jubilee Speed Trials

New Course Record of 22.27 sec. Set Up by R. Charlton (Vincent-H.R.D. Motor-cycle) Any thought that sprints are losing their appeal is dispelled by the Brighton Speed Trials of September 3rd, for they attracted a total entry of 249. This was the Golden Jubilee of this famous event, for in 1905 the Madeira Drive was built as a special motor track, at a cost of £4,000, for just such competitions....

Letters - A Man of Concern

Sir As probably the only English speaking witness to the Suzuki/Caffi incident at Estoril I offer one observation that following the stoppage of the race as the leading bunch passed by the scene it was Ayrton Senna alone who slowed right down to enquire from the marshals as to Caffi's condition. He was indeed the only driver to do so. Surely a most interesting and illuminating observation of the...

And then there were none...

The famed 1961 Liege-Rome-Liege rally destroyed ninety per cent of its entrants. But compared to some rallies, says John Davenport, it was a stroll in the park The year 1972 was a special one for rallying in Africa. To save you rushing for the history books, let me tell you straight away that part of the reason for this statement was that in April, Hannu Mikkola and Gunnar Palm became the first...
