Letter from Europe

[By means of which the Continental Correspondent, while he is motoring abroad, keeps in touch with the Editor.] Dear W.

Behind the scenes

Looking at the teams which appear regularly at race meetings The point of recognition between the public and the racing teams that entertain them is only at the circuits where brief programme notes (always about the drivers) do little to enlighten spectators about the cars, their sponsors, the mechanics, and the wherewithal of the team's existence.
