Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

The Brooklands reminiscences of G.P. Harvey Noble

Recounted to the Editor in a recent interview I think that George Harvey Noble has every right, with the late J. G. Parry Thomas, to be remembered as "Mr. Brooklands". He spent so much time at the Track at Weybridge that he had to give up two lucrative businesses. He raced a great variety of cars there, did almost daily stints of test driving, and knew every bump and contour, curve and angle of...

We hear A well-preserved and very small vintage Mercedes tourer of 12-h.p. is to be seen in the Crystal Palace district. The June V.C.C. event seemed to attract vintage small cars, in addition to veterans and Edwardians. We noted a truly beautiful "10/23" Talbot two-seater, an "8/18  Talbot-Darracq two-seater, Barker's "11.4" Lagonda coupé, which went on to the Lagonda C.C. Rally at Northampton...

Cars I have owned, by RC Symondson

RC Symondson is well known in club circles as the steady driver of a Type 57 Bugatti which in club races can usually be relied on to lead home modern, larger sports cars. He is something of a connoisseur of good handling in a motor car, and witness his article on steering in Motor Sport during the war. In the article below he describes the interesting vehicles he has owned, starting with the...

Brooklands Society News

The Brooklands Re-union on July 6th was almost washed-out by continual heavy rain, but it takes more than this to quench motoring nostalgia, and a large number of Members and Associates turned out for the tour of the old Track, by kind permission of the British Aircraft Corporation. As is traditional, pre-war cars headed the cavalcade which wound through the grounds, in at the old Fork entrance...

Students of speed

Bill Boddy remembers their car and bike battles - a veritable breeding ground for future British Motorsporting talent It is rather pleasing to thing of the sight and sound of racing cars invading usually quiet private drives in country estates, as the Dark and Light Blues compared their...

"BIRA" TWICE BEATEN

" BIRA " TWICE BEATEN SENSATIONAL RACING AT THE CLOSING CRYSTAL PALACE MEETING FURTHER ENHANCES ALTA PRESTIGE IN spite of torrential rain, the last Crystal Palace Meeting was immensely enjoyable. It is now a confirmed fact that one does not notice the slowness of the Palace circuit and that Harry Edwards's short races go down very well. The meeting was very fully televised and Dick Seaman started...

RUMBLINGS

If Winter Comes . . . ALTHOUGH we should really be shaking the moth from our leather waistcoats and getting down to Monte Carlo Rally schedules, that great Grand Prix at Donington is difficult to forget and enthusiasts this autumn seem to weakly disregard the coming winter and to talk happily of the next racing season. Racing under the new Formula will be extremely interesting. New cars are...

Racing At Whitsun

THE Whit-Saturday Goodwood Meeting of the B.A.R.C. attracted a relatively small crowd, perhaps on account of memories of the Silverstone congestion of a week earlier, possibly because of the Derby. The atmosphere of pre-war Brooklands was most enjoyable and the Sussex constabulary were ready and willing to exercise skill in coping with traffic congestion, should it have arisen. The main...

etta /1.4 KENT AND SUSSEX L.C.C. The first of the 1937 series of the always excellent Lewes speed trials was held on May 8th. Spectators arrived in plenty, many specials were being exercised and there were some fast runs, indeed the only thing missing was a spot of sunlight to warm and brighten this delightful spot on the downs above the sea. J. Lemon Burton made the fastest run of the afternoon...
