Three colours red

Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Ferrari flew the flag for Italy with elegant style – and success. How they did it, so rapidly after the ravages of war, is a remarkable tale grounded in politics and passionWriter Richard Williams Alfa Romeo’s team of cherry-red Tipo 158s took the first three places in the inaugural round of the Formula 1 world championship at Silverstone on May 13, 1950, with Nino Farina...

DREYFUS SCORES HIS FIRST VICTORY FOR FERRARI

DREYFUS SCORES HIS FIRST VICTORY FOR FERRARI Dreyfus and Chiron Win the Two Heats. Good Performance of Lewis and Martin. The New Maserati not au Point THE organisers of the G.P. de la Marne seem to be affected by some perverse streak of bad luck.

Continental Notes and News

Continental Notes and News By HAROLD NOCKOLDS A Racing Suicide. S0 far as my memory serves me, cases of people committing suicide by crashing a car have so far been confined to the pages of Michael Arlen's " Green Hat "and the Earl of Cottenham's " Sicilian Circuit."
