More than a fairey tale

He drove an elderly 2.9 Alfa Romeo Tipo B Monoposto cared for by Chertsey motor engineer J S Worters.

European letter

[By means of which our roving European reporter keeps in touch with the Editor.] Dear W.

The following year the RAC again organised a British Grand Prix at...
