VETERAN TYPES A SINGLE CYLINDER SIZAIRE = NAUDIN CAR-BREAKERS' dumps have long exercised over me a sort of horrible fascination. There is something melancholy but arresting about the sight of a relic, once a proud ship of the road, now a mechanical carcase. The bonnet does not fit, the hood is in tatters, someone has parked a lorry engine with a broken crankcase in the back seat, but that little...

Matters of moment

Mercedes win in Mexico The great victory of Mercedes-Benz in the recent arduous Mexican road race is significant news. It will be remembered that in 1951 this Mexican race, then an exciting innovation in an area unaccustomed to International contests, attracted widespread attention when it was won by the 4.1-litre Ferrari, driven by Taruffi and Chinetti, from another 4.1 Ferrari, handled by...

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Presteigne Rally (October 5/6th) The annual Vintage S.C.C. Presteigne Rally has a tradition dating back to pre-war days and this year the pilgrimage into wild wet Welsh Wales again took place and the old cars were once again given the freedom of Presteigne. A very big entry had been received, numbering 59 for the Sunday trial alone, which, in...

Italian Victory in Le Mans 24-Hour Race

Chinetti Brings Lord SeIsdon's 2-litre Ferrari in First at Over 82. m.p.h. Delage and Frazer-Nash Second and Third. Heat Takes Heavy Toll, but Six British Cars Finish. Before the war Le Mans was a household word in British motor-racing circles, as well it might be, with British cars winning this gruelling 24-hour sports-car race outright on six occasions. The Germans did much damage to the famous...

Racing car evolution part II: 1909-1916

In the issue of March, 1942, we published a long article by Cecil Clutton dealing with racing car evolution between 1895 and 1908. This contribution was so very well received that it occurred to us to continue this account of the development of the racing car down the years. Articles of this nature involve an immense amount of thought and research, and the author of the original was quite unable...

A 1924 Grand Prix Sunbeam by Anthony S. Heal the present owner After their historic victory in the 1923 Grand Prix at Tours the Sunbeam Company were not content to rest on their laurels but made a determined effort to produce another world-beating design for the following year's race. The piece de resistance of the event at Tours had undoubtedly been the employment of forced induction on the 8-...

Vintage postbag

The Magneto Scare Sir, Re the pre-W WI magneto situation, when I entered the auto-electrical industry in 1940 I was puzzled by the obvious similarity between the different makes of magneto; they all shared similar methods of construction, shaft and contact breaker taper, etc, and were mostly metric threads. In fact no basic change of design was apparent until the advent of the polar inductor...

" ALPHONSE I I ." SOME of the readers of MOTOR SPORT who are of fairly long standing may remember an effusion which once appeared in these pages entitled "Alphonse." For the benefit of those who do not, however, I may remark that the screed in question disclosed various curious details of the later life history of a Hispano-Suiza car which first saw the light of day in 1912, and I would add that...
