R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship—1963

The R.A.C. British Hill-Climb Championship season commenced on April 27th with the Severn Valley M.C.'s Hill-Climb on the lengthened 900-yd. course.

1967 British Grand Prix race report - Team Lotus Dominate

The choice of the R.A.C. fell on Silverstone this year, so with the help of the BRDC and most of the country's motor clubs the British Grand Prix was held on the wide-open spaces of the airfield circuit. Entry was by invitation and all the big teams were represented along with more than the usual number of private owners, some newcomers being given a chance to try their hand at Grand Prix racing...

R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship—1963

Our last article on the R.A.C. British Hill-Climb Championship appeared in our July issue and gave the position after the Midland A.C.'s Shelsley Walsh Hill-Climb. Since then five other qualifying rounds have taken place; these being Bo'ness, Rest-and-Be-Thankful, Bouley Bay, Great Auclum and Craigantlet.

R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship—1963

SINCE the last summary on the R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship for 1963 appeared in last month's issue, two further qualifying rounds have taken place, one being a newcomer to the contest, the Barbon Manor course at Kirkby Lonsdale, the other, one of the oldest, Shelsley Walsh. Organised by the Westmorland M.C. on May 25th, Barbon Manor nearly became the event that wasn't, when H. Murray's Spikins...

D-type snippets

Production Numbers Contemporary records indicate that there were 76 'short nose' Ds. Five had XKC chassis numbers, respectively XKC 401 (the prototype) followed by 402-405 (this last car was never completed), while the sixth was the first to be stamped XKD (406). The Production versions started at 509. There was also apparently a glass-fibre experimental vehicle (544) that was supposedly scrapped...

The Shelsley Walsh Story by Simon Taylor. ISBN184425 090 3, published by Haynes, £30.00 Before we get accused of bias, yes Simon Taylor is the author. And yes there is the lingering threat of a P45 appearing in the internal post should the review be less than glowing. Fortunate for us, then, that it's actually a very enjoyable read, recounting the history of the hallowed Worcestershire hillclimb...

The rub of the Green

Picture the scene: on the southern slope of the Sussex Downs a Ferrari GTO races through a right-hander shortly after the start, the corner lined with straw bales, while the crowd cranes forward from behind tapes and paling fencing, basking beneath a clear, blue sky. Shortly afterwards, it is followed by another GTO, this time in the livery of Maranello Concessionaires, which wails off into the...

Shelsley Walsh (August 26th)

Those who braved the elements to witness the last Shelsley Walsh Championship Hill-Climb of the 1962 season were rewarded by one of the best entries to grace the Championship series so far. Tony Marsh made a welcome return after his Rest-and-BeThankful crash, reverting back to his 2½-litre B.R.M. David Good (the current Champion) should have had a 1½-litre, twin-cam Climax engine in his Formula...

Around and about

Group 1 grumbles ENTERING ITS SECOND full year, Group 1 standard saloon-car racing starts the season on a note of discord and controversy. In the centre of all this is the RAC Minorsport Division who were responsible for reorganising the regulations but only announced their deliberations two weeks ago and only five weeks before the start of the season.
