Mallory Park (April 15th)

Despite running a Brands Hatch Meeting on the same day, the B.R. & S.C.C.'s National British Mallory Park race meeting produced a good entry with the exception of the Formula Junior race, which had only eight contestants. The main attraction of the nine-race programme was the 20-lap Formule Libre race, won by Tony Marsh's 2 1/2-litre B.R.M. from John Taylor's 1 1/2-litre Cooper-Ford and Brian...

Forever with blue genes

Alan Mann Racing’s cars are famous for being cloaked in red and gold – but a strong association with Ford, now as in period, is equally symbolic.

Unique Rover

Mann of the decade

His career was confined to the 1960s but what an era it was, with Alan Mann acting as a lynchpin in Ford’s competition drive By Richard Heseltine It holds true in broad outline that the closer you get to the truth, the more the legend evaporates. Racer-turned-entrant Alan Mann has just skewered an eminent figure of ’60s motor sport, outlining how he was caught with his fingers in the corporate...
