Rob Walker Equipe Wins Again MONTE CARLO, May 18th. THE organising committee of the Automobile Club of Monaco deserve full marks for not pandering to the present-day ideas of the F.I.A. in turning Grand Prix races into " sprint-type ” events, for they kept the XVI Monaco G.P. to a traditional full-length G.P. of 100 laps of the tiny, narrow, 3.145-km. street circuit. On the other hand they...

Meeting, in Connaught, Maserati and Aston Martin Cars An extremely large crowd of some 50,000 attended the International Race Meeting at Goodwood on Easter Monday, when the summery weather set off the picturesque setting, the Paddock thronged with people and the sports-girls more exotic or attractive than ever. Many entirely new...

The Castle Combe National Race Meeting

Bob Gerard's Cooper-Bristol Beats Flockhart (B.R.M.) at Pleasant Meeting on August 28th. Two Class Records Fall. At the risk of being accused of repetition, I will say that the Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. race meetings at Castle Combe circuit, adjacent to the picturesque Wiltshire village of Castle Combe, near Chippenham, are run effectively, yet with a minimum of "red tape." So it was on August...

Silverstone Sidelights

Scintilla magnetos were used by the Connaughts. During the afternoon "Goldie" Gardner circulated the M.G. record-car and the Royal Corps of Signals gave a very creditable display of motor-cycle trick riding - after which we felt that at least the patrolling mobile police motor-cyclists should have come round standing on their saddles ! The enormous streams of traffic flowing from the circuit...

XVIII Grosser Preis von Deutschland

Fangio again Adenau (Eifel), August 5th Probably the most outstanding thing about the German Grand Prix was the fact that no British cars were entered. Not one of our Grand Prix teams made an entry which was not only surprising, but depressing as well. It was left to Italy, the real home of Grand Prix racing, to make up the bulk of the runners for one of the toughest events in the World...
