Mods and rockers

The wild world of Special Saloons and Modsports went out of fashion as the traditional grass roots became swamped with one-make championships. But now they’re back in vogue – and blooming Writer Gordon Cruickshank, photographer Howard Simmons There I was, slicing through Silverstone’s Bridge Corner, just clipping the apex when suddenly there were four cars stationary in front of me... Which is...

Memorable John Button What a shame… and what a shock to be informed of John Button’s passing in your editorial. Having seen or heard nothing in the media, my wife and I were taken aback, since we frequently watch BBC news headlines and I admit to being a Facebook addict. I had the pleasure of meeting him at last year’s Festival of Speed. I had been ushered into the ‘red carpet’ area, for a cuppa...

You, me and WB

The spirit of Bill Boddy was surely travelling with our two-man Bentley crew as they sprinted to John O'Groats and back At midnight on June 27, 1938, a 4¼-litre Derby Bentley eased away from Parliament Square and turned to the north. At its wheel was a 25-year-old lad who was already the editor of Motor Sport and would go on to become the longest-serving contributor to this or, so far as we have...

A quick dash of Martini

A pair of Lancia LC2s will race in Group C races in Europe this season with Americans Richard and Benton Bryan driving. The ex-works Martini Racing cars were built in 1984 and one was raced by Bob Wollek, Riccardo Patrese and Mauro Baldi.

A Racing Driver's Aeroplane

I would not like to attempt to list all those personalities who have been associated both with motor racing and aviation; Voisin, the Farmans, Harry Hawker who gave his name to so many great aeroplanes, the number is legion. Fewer racing personnel have been associated with the construction of aeroplanes named after them. Captain D K M Marendaz was responsible for one or two Marendaz machines, and...

Teaming Metropolis

Into the tight right-hander at Lodge Corner. There's room for a Rover Metro and a couple of inches of daylight down the inside. Wait for his brake lights to come on. Count to three, grit teeth and go for it . . . now! You're through the corner as one, but the tighter line confers a couple of inches' advantage as you aim slightly left up the hill at Deer Leap. Perhaps you're too busy concentrating...

Sage Recollections

Sage Recollections Your article on the Sage car in the September issue is interesting, as you mention A. Graham Forsyth as Chief Designer. In 1957 I joined Fairey Aviation / Marine as Naval Architect and my first assignment was to design a fast motor boat around a new marine gearbox and drive system designed and built at the Hayes factory by A. G. Forsyth. He was first introduced to me as Captain...

Mallock's half-century

Mallock will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the debut of its first sports-racing car with a weekend dedicated to the constructor at Silverstone in August during a 750 Motor Club race meeting. The cars were initially built and raced by Major Arthur Mallock and since his death in the mid-’90s his eldest son Richard has built cars for the Clubmans race series. Brother Ray has taken his team into...

Looking back with Dick Jacobs

Earlier this year another era ended in the history of MG when a compulsory purchase order forced the closure of W. Jacobs and Son Ltd., Mill Garage, the most famous of all MG dealerships, run by that famous MG racing driver and entrant Dick Jacobs in Chigwell Road, South Woodford, Essex. Jacobs and Mill Garage possibly gave the MG marque more publicity in the '50s than the entire Nuffield or BMC...
