Lancia Beta Monte-Carlo

Sir, Your March issue contained two interesting statements: on page 309 in Lancias' advertisement for the Monte-Carlo (and it's nice to sec a national campaign for this type of car) they say: "The handling, with all-round independent suspension and disc brakes on all four wheels is exhilarating." Nine pages later, C.R. comments on the car "Excellent roadholding and handling ... (but) the front...

Donington Park racing

Once again Tom Wheatcroft is going to try and get motor racing going again on the revised Donington Park circuit, with the first meetings scheduled for this spring. Twice in the past it has looked as though racing was going to start, but unforeseen legal hassles and planning problems have held things up, so let us hope that it is a case of third time lucky.

Mallory Park VSCC

In only its third visit to Mallory, the VSCC has proved that it has found an excellent home for the Williams Monaco Trophy race, formerly based at Cadwell Park, and this year's event on the 18th July produced a superb battle for the meeting's title race.

Alfa Moment

The VSCC's Ron Flockhart Memorial Trophy meeting at Donington Park celebrated the popular Scottish double Le Mans winner, who lost his life in 1962 during an attempt on the Sydney-London air record for prop-driven aircraft. For many, the highlight of the meeting was the first public airing of Tom Wheatcroft's Alfa Romeo 'Bimotore', this particular car being based on the smaller 5.8-litre (2x2.9...
