The Other Cars of Brian Lister

"In the fifties," says Brian Lister, "you still had two distinct types of successful racing car designers. There were the designer / artists, such as John Cooper and myself, people with an engineering background who designed intuitively, and the designer / scientists such as Colin Chapman. I happen to have been involved in racing at the right time and when we had to make the decision to quit, in...

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

Tony Crook — Driver

Sir, "The Other Cars of Brian Lister" (August issue) greatly brought back memories to me, a racegoer for over 30 years. However magnificent a driver Archie Scott-Brown was, it is not correct to say that in 1954 . "The Lister-Bristol driven by Archie Scott-Brown was the only challenge to Roy Salvadori driving Sid Greene's 2-litre Maserati". He may have been the only challenge to Salvadori, but...

RACING DRIVERS DIRECTORY-1

RACING DRIVERS DIRECTORY -I The racing careers of the leading Grand Prix drivers have been repeated so many times that they are well known to most followers of the Sport. We feel that there are just as many interesting stories to be told about the men who race almost every weekend at Club and National meetings up and down the country. We hope that those people who watch the racing from the...

Monaco is Monaco,

— but with reservations, as the headline suggested: 'It's fantastic — but is it a car?' Monaco is Monaco, of course, and close processions have been the way of it there for generations. It was no surprise to see Webber, Rosberg, Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton and Massa lapping all of a group in the late stages, but no one seemed inclined to make a move, and really the tension came only from wondering...

Tojeiro

The way in which John Tojeiro became a constructor is typical of the Fifties — he built a special intending to race it himself then first one, then another, customer arrived on his doorstep and suddenly he was no longer a special builder but a small scale constructor. Ironically, he never did get round to racing one of his own cars. Although little more than 30 Tojeiros were ever built, and...

Accept no limits

Physical disability was no barrier to racing success for Archie Scott Brown, one of the best-loved drivers in a golden age of motor sport By Nigel Roebuck Of late much has been written about Jimmy Clark, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his death, and an indication of his greatness frequently cited was his absolute domination at Spa-Francorchamps, in its fearsome original 8.76-mile...

Showing 'em who's boss

Pitlanes the world over have echoed to the bark of Keith Greene's commands, and his results show why he has always been in demand. Gordon Cruickshank listens to stories from 45 years of motor racing Remember the Alan Mann Ford Falcons? Alain de Cadenet at Le Mans? Rondeau winning at the Sarthe? Renault in touring cars? There's one common factor – Keith Greene, team manager. He has run just about...

Historics

The passage of time leaves in its wake an ever increasing stream of historic racing cars, outmoded by technical advancement and changing formulae. What's to be done with them all? There's nothing so forlorn as a once active and competitive racing car posed like a stuffed dynasaur on a museum plinth. Thanks to an expanding hard core of enthusiasts there is an increasingly thriving selection of...

Reflections

– Chris Amon on why St Jovite was his favourite track – Lewis Hamilton returns to his winning ways – The tackiness of the Monaco Grand Prix – Remembering ‘a damn good pro’, Roy Salvadori St Jovite. I remember years ago talking to Chris Amon about his favourite tracks, and being a touch surprised that he included this place two hours to the north of Montréal. Thinking about it now, though, I might...
