An easy rider born to drive

Gary Hocking called a premature halt to his meteoric bike career in 1962. He felt Formula One was a safer option...

Rhodesia's Gary Hocking had been drawn at six, his MV Agusta team-mate Mike Hailwood at three and his good friend, Honda's Aussie charger Tom Phillis,...

New Blood

Some newcomers to the Sport and their achievements to date One of the most encouraging factors about the post-war resumption of racing has been the number of drivers entirely new to the game and the skill which, almost without exception, they have displayed, often at the wheel of really tricky and potent cars. Before the war organisers, quite rightly, regarded with suspicion newcomers who entered...

Vintage Postbag

The Standard V8 Project Sir, Mr. R. E. Lewis wants to obtain details of the Standard V8 project after it had passed into the hands of E.R.A. In fact it never passed into the hands of E.R.A.; in 1939 a new car, the Raymond Mays Special, using a Standard V8 engine, was produced at Bourne, adjacent to Raymond Mays' home, alongside the E.R.A. racing cars, where the present Owen Organisation B.R.M.s...

Well met at Race RetroJust about everyone in the old car business heads to Kenilworth in February for Britain's biggest historic motor sport show A very social do, Race Retro, the UK's historic motor sport jamboree. If you didn't see someone in Paris at Retromobile, you'll bump into them at Stoneleigh. That's why I didn't see half of this year's show — I was stalled by the Motor Sport stand in a...

Vintage Miscellany

Vintage Miscellany (By which means the Editor over-runs his Veteran, Edwardian and Vintage pages commencing on page 1259) THAT 1913 Sunbeam, which was literally dug up from a field near Dumfries, competed in the recent Doune hill-climb. A reader wants to know whether his 1934 Singer Le Mans with triple SUs and a phosphor-bronze head, Reg. No. BNC 39, is still in existence. It apparently raced at...

The cost of motoring sport

4: 750 and 1200 Formulae More than ever, money is the criterion in motor racing today. Starting money, prize money, trade sponsorship and bonuses, form a vital part in the successful activity of a professional racing team, making it more difficult all the time for the true amateur to join in with any chance of success, so we do perhaps tend to lose sight sometimes of the basic reason for taking...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section dedicated to old-car matters Some Lucas History Last year the great Lucas electrical organisation, on which so many vintage and older cars relied for lighting and starting sets, celebrated its one-hundredth anniversary.

"Motor Sport" Conducts the First Published Road Test of the Healey "Silverstone" Sports 2-Seater

A genuine maximum of over 100 m.p.h., exceptional acceleration and splendid braking and roadholding, allied to docility and ease of control, characterise the latest model from Warwick. The Healey has been a car of interest to enthusiasts from the word go. As long ago as January, 1947, Motor Sport published a long article on this then recently-announced make, and those who studied what we, and...

Twelfth knight

BRM entered its final Formula One phase — its V12 era — with a car conceived by a freelance designer, built by an unproven firm and fitted with a sports car engine. Paul Fearnley drives it and explains how this 'recipe for disaster' came to the rescue of a team in distress The closing months of 1967 were tricky for BRM.
