Lunch with... Sir Stirling Moss

Simon Taylor finds out that life for the man they used to call Mr Motor Racing is more hectic than ever. For him it’s a logical continuation of the racing career that ended 44 long years ago Sir Stirling Moss doesn’t eat lunch. At 76 years of age, he’s far too busy. By 7am each day he’s at his desk in his self-designed, high-tech house in Shepherd Street, Mayfair. Lady Moss, his wife Susie, is at...

Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

Modern times

The fine summer enjoyed by much of the Northern Hemisphere this year duly had its effect on agriculture, commerce, horticulture — and Formula One. Every single European race in the world championship was run in rainless conditions, in a season when Bridgestone's wet-weather tyres were expected to be superior, but Michelin's dry-weather rubber was generally better. Ferrari, of course, is the only...

The Glen

Randall Barnett relates how one man's enthusiasm created a Grand Prix venue in New York State.

The greatest party that never happened...

”Imagine this: your greatest heroes and closest friends, both past and present, brough together around a dream dinner table letting the conversation – and stories – flow. Who would you chose? Well, for me, it’s a guest list of some of the most wonderful people I’ve known – and one I’d have liked to have known…” JUAN MANUEL FANGIO Five-time champion, the ultimate driver and gentleman He was my...

Looking back with Tony Rolt

It seems hard to believe that Tony Roll could be old enough to have raced at Donington, but thefact remains that, at the relatively tender age of twenty-one he won the 1939 British Empire Trophy at the wheel of the ex-Bira 1.1/2-litre E.R.A. "Remus". Since that period when many hailed him as a promising youngster, a varied racing career brought him the first Le Mans victory to be gained at an...

Goodwood at Easter

A notable F1 victory by Graham Hill (BRM) Easter seems far away as we look forward to Whitsun but printing schedules precluded any reference to racing that week-end in the last issue and so, for the record, here are a few impressions. Graham Hill thoroughly deserved his victory in the F1 Glover Trophy Race, in a new V8 BRM. He took the lead on the third lap and drove fast and steadily, never...
