When it was all over many people wondered when the real race was going to start, feeling that 1 hr. 37 min. could not have seen the running of the Grand Prix of Europe. If the F.I.A. go on encouraging this sort of thing we shall soon have to go to Silverstone Club meetings to watch really arduous racing. In case anyone missed the "carnival atmosphere" at the start, the programmes were all printed...

45th French Grand Prix-Grand Prix d'Europe

Ferrari Back on Form REIMS, July 5th. This year the G.P. of the A.C.F., better known as the French Grand Prix, was given the title of G.P. d'Europe, for what it was worth, and attracted a very strong entry of works teams and small private teams, as well as a few independents. As in previous years, a F.2 race was held as well, but this year it was run after the Grand Prix, and the annual 12-hour...

Continental Notes and News

ConfinerecaL Note Newo By OUR CONTINENTAL CORRESPONDENT Teutonic Thoroughness I wonder how many spectators 'at a Grand Prix realise the immense amount of preparation that has gone towards the perfection of the cars flashing past the trOunes? In this vital, yet often tedious, phase of motor racing none are more conscientious than the Germans, as witness a certain expedition across Switzerland to...

Reflection in the Swedish lakes

There were one or two minor lakes in the paddock during practice, as the weather tried to wreck the Swedish Grand Prix, but fortunately the sun won the battle and the water soon evaporated. Until mid-morning on race day everyone was prepared for another Spanish Grand Prix riot, the expectations of tyre-changing being uppermost in most people's minds. The over-night modifications to the pit area,...

7th Grand Prix Rouen-les-Essarts

Another F.2 Win for Moss Rouen, July 12th. This year the Rouen race up-graded itself slightly by holding a Formula 2 race as well as its annual sports-car event, though it always seems a pity that a full Grand Prix for Formula 1 cars is no longer held on this wonderful circuit, which is surely one of the best in France. However, the Automobile Club Normand are not greatly blessed financially and...

The 52nd Grand Prix of the A.C.F.

A Popular Victory Reims, France, July 3rd SINCE the previous Grande Epreuee there were two questions outstanding, what would John Surtees drive as he had terminated his contract with the Ferrari team and whether the H16 B.R.M. would he sufficiently developed to run well in practice and also to race? The first point was solved when the Cooper team arrived at Reims with three Cooper-Maserati V12...

Pity The Poor Historian . . .

One day someone will write a further history of the French Grand Prix, and in order to produce facts and figures he will no doubt turn to the bound volumes of his favourite motor magazine. At the moment there are five weekly publications specialising in race reports and the wealth of information on Grand Prix races is truly remarkable. Now the reporting of action and incidents depends entirely on...

The Second Circuit of the Auvergne

Moss Unbeatable in F.2 Clermont-Ferrand, July 26th The City of Clermont-Ferrand lies more or less in the centre of France, surrounded by the hills of the Massif Central and is a large and thriving city with seemingly little connection with the outside world. Last year the Automobile Club D'Auvergne, which is centred in Clermont-Ferrand, built an entirely new circuit up in the hills overlooking...
