2014 Goodwood Revival

You always know what you’re going to get at the Goodwood Revival. The set dressing, the clothes, the cars, the smiling drivers… it’s the same every time. So how come it still manages to surprise and make its captivated audience, many of whom return year after year, gawp and gasp in amazement? We guess some things are never tiresome. Each Revival leaves defining images that linger, then blend in...

In brief

* The Chevron B8 that John Lepp drove in 1969 has returned to racing in the hands of Ed Lovett. The son of former touring car and Chevron racer Peter acquired the car from the museum at Stavelot in Belgium, and it is thought to have gone un-raced for at least 15 years. The B8, recently restored by Simon Hadfield, will run in Guards Trophy and World Sportscar Masters races. * The three Morgan SLRs...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor Looks Back on the Cars he Drove in 1961 ANOTHER busy year is over and it is time to take out my diary and recall the pros and cons, the merits and shortcomings, of the cars I road-tested for MOTOR SPORT during 1961. It was a year during which I covered 18,930 miles on these test runs, 15,000 further miles in staff and personal vehicles, was a passenger for considerable mileages in...

Veteran to classic

Airedale tale Arising from our analysis of Dorman and Riley valvegear (Motor Sport, November 1987), we have received a very interesting note from John Garden of Inverurie, whose first car had a Dorman engine with inclined overhead valves operated, as on later Rileys, by high-set push-rods from two camshafts on either sides of the base-chamber. The car itself, an Airedale, was a rare make even in...

Fast dance saloons

Top event at Goodwood's Revival will be the St Mary's Trophy.David Malsher assesses the chances of the race's two main stars Give me Goodwood on a summer's afternoon and you can keep the rest of the world," said Roy Salvadori.

47th Targa Florio

An Exciting Race Sicily, May 5th. The Targa Florio is a form of motor racing that at one time was the normal thing but is now unique, and drivers and spectators either like it or hate it. If you like it then you return to Sicily every year in the spring for Targa Florio time; if you hate it then you go on running in your sprint races round an aerodrome or in a park. I am happy to be one of those...

Seventh T.T. For Moss

Britain's oldest motor race, the Tourist Trophy, held for the fourth time at Goodwood, received an entry which could hardly be called International and when no less than seven of the entries withdrew, the race lost much of its interest. The Ferraris of Seidel and Berney were withdrawn from the big-car class, as were the Jaguar E-types of McLaren and Wicken; the latter, not having shown...

Matters of Moment

The Monte-Carlo Rally in Retrospect The 1958 Monte Carlo Rally, thanks to seasonal weather in Europe and England, turned out to be a thoroughly tough, proving contest, from which France proved victorious through the medium of a meticulously prepared and superbly driven Category 2 Renault Dauphine. So severe were the ice and snow that the Rally was very definitely decided on the road and choice...

XXI Grand Prix De Pau

An Easy Lotus Victory Pau, FRANCE, April 3rd. APART from being the twenty-first race to be held by the Automobile Club Basco-Bearnais and the first European Grand Prix of the season, the race at Pau also had the distinction of being the first Grand Prix to be held under the new Formula for 1961-64. The first practice session was on Saturday afternoon and there was plenty of activity, for drivers...

Springtime activities in the workshops

As Easter approaches, and Goodwood opens the international racing calendar as far as Britain is concerned, there is more and more work going on in the various racing departments, and new cars begin to near completion while old ones are being finished off after a winter overhaul. In the middle of March, in time to get these words into print on April 1st, we made a visit to some of the premises...
