A WONDERFUL WORLD'S HOUR RECORD

• A WONDERFUL WORLD'S HOUR CORD The outstanding record attempt during May was undoubtedly the magnificent world's hour figure made by Count Czaikowski. Driving a 4,900 c.c. Bugatti on the Avus Track, Berlin, Czaikowski covered 132.88 miles in one hour, thus beating G. E. T. Eyston's previous record of 130.87 miles on the Panhard at Montihely. After two days practice the 4.9 Bugatti set out on the...

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?

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." But a genuine suicide of this nature actually took place during the practising for the Grand Prix of Czechoslovakia, at Masarvk. A...

THE GRAND PRIX DE LA MARNE

THE GRAND PRIX DE LA MARNE IT was rather a pity, perhaps, that the Grand Prix de la Marne, run over a road circuit in the neighbourhood of Reims, was held on the second day of the Belgian Touring Grand Prix, Sunday 5th July, as the clashing of the two events may have somewhat reduced the field of each. However, the Marne race attracted a satisfactory number of entries, although it was definitely...

Whitney Straight - Racing Driver

I find it astonishing that, whereas books have been written about so many racing drivers, from those of the pioneer days, through the interim periods, to the present day, nothing has appeared, so far as I can recollect, about Whitney Straight, or Earl Howe' for that matter. So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

The Bugatti 3.3 litre Type 59

For many people the Type 59 is the best-looking of all the racing cars built by Ettore Bugatti, the whole car exuding a slender elegance, set off by the finely spoked wire wheels. Like so many racing cars, the Type 59 Bugatti was late in being completed and suffered by being technically obsolete by the time it appeared. The project was started in 1932 to try to combat the "monoposto" Alfa Romeo...

CONTINENTAL NOTES-continued

Fagioli's Plans Settled. One by one the leading Continental drivers are finally settling their plans for the coming season. As soon as it is known that one of them is "in the market," so to speak, Rumour gets to work and whispers a different tale in every car. A good example of this can be found in that tough Italian driver, Luigi Fagioli, champion of Italy for 1933. First it got round that he...
