The Iron Age

This ex-Jim Clark Lister is still going strong after a long and busy life – and Motor Sport was offered a chance to put it through its paces at Goodwood Writer: Paul Parker, Photographer: Stuart Collins Welcome to an age where design and detail were sometimes lacking, sometimes just what was needed, and what passed for aerodynamics were just smooth curves. Few realised then that more air was...

The court of King Archie

The most famous Lister still in existence is going under the hammer. Motor Sport was offered the privilege of time at its helm Writer Andrew Frankel | Photographer James Lipman It wasn’t the thought that was strange, so much as the timing of its arrival. If you are busy juggling power and steering as someone else’s very valuable racing car slithers around beneath you on a damp track, your brain...

Working with the Warwicks Sir, I write to say how very much I enjoyed Simon Taylor’s article on lunching with Derek Warwick in Jersey (April issue). Some 40 years ago my father, Samuel Lee, was company secretary to Warwick Trailers in Alresford and he always said Derek would be the next World Champion. Derek, as was stated, was frequently in the wrong car and place! I never met Derek but tales of...

Flockharts - the facts

Sir, Robert Edwards' article of Ron Flockhart in the May edition justifiably highlights Flockhart's third place with the Connaught B7 in the 1956 Grand Prix of Europe as heroic. However, it was hardly a "very close third" as he was a lap down on the winner at the finish. More serious, though, is the assertion that Archie Scott Brown took provisional pole with the Connaught. I spoke to Robert...

Hash and splash

Sir, Two letters in the March issue prompt this one. Mike McDowell writes on Ivor Bueb, and Robert Edwards writes on the Masten Gregory/Archie Scott Brown showdown. More than 40 years on, perhaps it is time to clear the air. As Mike says, Ivor felt himself to be under a lot of pressure, but the amount of brandy he drank before each race, to "steady his nerves", could have lost him his driving...

The cars of Betty Haig

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Late in November I drove out of Hampshire and across the rolling Berkshire downs, bleak under a blanket of grey cloud, to Shellingford, to talk to Betty Haig, grand niece of Field-Marshal the Earl Haig, K.G., G.C.B., O.M., about the cars she has owned, and driven in rallies, races and sprints. As I talked to this keen lady racing motorist in a study...

Special effects

We reveal personal relics from the racing life of Luigi Musso, one of the ‘lost generation’ of ’50s Italian racers Many of you might remember the photographic feature we published on Alberto Ascari in the July 2012 issue. The incredible selection of memorabilia was the property of a private collector who was only too happy to let us take a camera into his home. Fast-forward nine months and the...

Gregory the Great

Sir, I too have always been intrigued by the race between Archie Scott Brown and Masten Gregory at Silverstone in May 1958. David Morgan's letter perhaps suggests Gregory's victory was a narrow one, when in fact it was a walkover. Furthermore, I believe it probably owed more to inspired driving than to mildly revised bodywork. The first-class field for this race included Moss, Hawthorn and Brooks...

Double Scotch

In the first of an occasional series about great privateer race teams, Gordon Cruickshank remembers Ecurie Ecosse, the National team with International appeal and two Le Mans wins National racing teams don't usually inspire loyalties outside their own country, for obvious reasons. But the tale of Ecurie Ecosse, proudly Scottish from beginning to end, is one which inspired support right across...
