REVENGE FOR MASERATI AT NAPLES

REVENGE FOR MASERATI AT NAPLES FARINA WINS UNINTERESTING BIG CAR RACE The 1,500 c.c. battle continues. At Turin it looked as though the E.R.A.s were slightly faster than the Maseratis, and Bjornstadt's victory seemed to confirm this impression. Nor even in the hands of such a masterly driver as Rene Dreyfus could the Italian cars compete with Britain's racers. As if to upset all form, however,...

Letters from readers

Morganatics Sir, During the past few months I have read in your correspondence columns two violent anti-Morgan tirades, both aptly headed "Oh dear," and after Mr Marsh' letter in your February issue, I feel I must dash into print on the subject. Mr Marsh's formidable array of troubles are really nothing like as serious as they seem, or at least, the causes of them aren't, and I do not think he...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1965 This annual review is intended as a refresher course for those readers who are interested in the good, bad, and indifferent aspects of the cars that came to us for road-test during the past twelve months. Consequently, it will not be a resume of the Good Life, as provided by D.S.J. last month. Nor do I claim to have toiled so hard at my motoring...

Students of speed

The intense sporting rivalry between Cambridge and Oxford stretches beyond the Thames, Lor'ds and Twickenham. Bill Boddy remembers their car and bike battles - a veritable breeding ground for future British Motorsporting talent It is rather pleasing to thing of the sight and sound of racing cars invading usually quiet private drives in country estates, as the Dark and Light Blues compared their...

PERSONALITIES IN ENGLAND

PERSONALITIES IN ENGLAND AN ARTICLE WHICH WILL INTEREST OTHER OBSERVERS AND PERHAPS AMUSE THE "VICTIMS" THE first race which I ever saw was the B.R.D.C. " 500 " run at Brooklands in the autumn of 1999. From that time until I became closely associated with the sport, I saw quite a lot of racing., yet I was a distant spectator, and never at any time came into close contact with ziny of the drivers...

Letters from Readers

Sir, Capt. John Moon, in his interesting article on the Jeep, stated that a few with four-wheel steering were made. Actually, only 50 A4s, four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, were made in 1941. They simply had a normal front axle assembly at the rear, with the steering of front and rear axles effected and coupled by a steering transfer box. Possibly the technique required for handling this...

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933 Alpine In recent times many retrospectives of former important competition events have been held, for classic and other cars. They are commendable in that they provide good sport with a flavour of the past for those who take part, and perhaps they enhance the value of some of the cars so publicised. But none of them, for a variety of rather obvious reasons, can quite...
