The Iron Age

This ex-Jim Clark Lister is still going strong after a long and busy life – and Motor Sport was offered a chance to put it through its paces at Goodwood Writer: Paul Parker, Photographer: Stuart Collins Welcome to an age where design and detail were sometimes lacking, sometimes just what was needed, and what passed for aerodynamics were just smooth curves. Few realised then that more air was...

The 250F Maserati -- Part Three

(Continued from the July issue) While the Maserati factory team was enjoying a successful season in 1957 with the three "Lightweight" cars, 2527, 2528 and 2529, it was also experimenting with a car for the future. Originally this was going to be an entirely new car, with a 2-1/2--litre flat-12 cylinder engine, following the 250F layout by being front-mounted and still using a gearbox in unit with...

Historic Healey seeking new owner

As someone who learned much about old cars from the late, great Bill Boddy and even more so from Denis Jenkinson, I am by reflex a sceptic. The legendary status of the Austin-Healey 3000 as 'The Big Healey' has always passed straight over my head. For one thing a 3-litre in-line 'six' is not particularly big. Nor is the 3000 itself. But I suppose within the rallying context such a roily sports...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC

The Entertainers Anthony Mayman had his worst day in many at a VSCC race meeting when he won only one race at Donington Park on Whit Monday, and was second in two others. At the same meeting, the first of two planned Donington visits by the VSCC this year, John Harper won twice. The day started badly when Alastair Pugh overturned his Frazer Nash during practice, and was taken to hospital with...

A long way from Holmes Sir, With regard to Snetterton and the AD016 (Austin 1100) race, I was there taking photos. The cars that were loaded back onto the transporters afterwards were not the same shape as the ones that arrived! I recall the fun the drivers had on the grid, putting on their handbrakes and easing out clutches, forcing the cars into a synchronised porpoising motion on their...

Speed --Fast times, gripping stuff. Red lorry, yellow lorry ?

Famously described as a fast truck, the Ferrari Daytona was an unlikely racing car. Built for comfort as well as speed, so was the 550 Maranello. Yet both proved winners. Richard Heseltine drives them to find out why Should have seen that coming. Giving impulse free reign, goaded into pressing on by the searing frenzy of that pure-bred V12 nearing its sweet spot, understeer beckons. And how....

An excellent vintage Oulton Park meeting

The VSCC Race Meeting at Oulton Park on June 13th had a big attendance (paying spectators 4,000 they said), and there was some excellent racing, run (would you believe?) in sunshine. It opened with a confusing 5/6-lap Handicap in which the winner, who appeared to be Howell's venerable blown 3-litre Sunbeam, wasn't given the flag and which the official results now tell us was Rawson's Austin 7,...

Monza 1,000 Kilometers

Surtees/Parkes win for Ferrari Monza, Italy, April 25th The 1,000-kilometre race at Monza on Monday, April 25th, a national holiday, provided Ferrari with a hollow victory, rather like that of Ford's at Daytona, for there was no serious opposition to the works-entered 4-litre V12-cylinder four-overhead-camshaft 330P/3 with new coupe bodywork. There was no car in the entry of 40 that was any...

The passage of time leaves in its wake an ever increasing stream of historic racing cars, outmoded by technical advancement and changing formulae. What's to be done with them all? There's nothing so forlorn as a once active and competitive racing car posed like a stuffed dynasaur on a museum plinth. Thanks to an expanding hard core of enthusiasts there is an increasingly thriving selection of...

International Trophy

Silverstone return.—Jackie Stewart returned to Silverstone for the first time in two years and scored a very convincing victory in the International Trophy meeting for Team Tyrrell. Here he has just passed an unhappy Mike Hailwood (Surtees TS14) at Club Corner, while, in the background, can be seen Emerson Fittipaldi's abandoned Lotus 72 which retired on the first lap when the flywheel sheared....
