Continental notes

A number of readers have expressed surprise that I do not spend the winter months chasing the motor racing to warmer climates, going to Watkins Glen as soon as the European season finishes, and then on to Mexico, California, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Such a world tour would be quite feasible, and it need not finish in Australia, for on the way back to Europe one could take in...

Film Reviews

B.R.S.C.C. Midnight Film Show A popular winter motor-racing entertainment is the B.R.S.C.C. Festival of Speed and Sport, which took place last year on November 22nd.

XXI Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. sweeps the board Monte Carlo, May 26th. This year it was the turn of the Monaco Grand Prix to be called the Grand Prix of Europe, but more important it was the first Grande Epreuve of the 1963 season.

Filipinetti: triumph before tragedy

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Scuderia Filipinetti.

From the archives: Aston Martin's World Championship
