With Moss in the Mille Miglia

On May 1st motor-racing history was made, for Stirling Moss won the 1,000-mile Mile Miglia, the first time in twenty-two years that this has been achieved by a British driver, and I had the very great privilege of sitting beside him throughout this epic drive. But let us go back to the beginning, for this win was not a fluke on the spur of the moment, it was the result of weeks, even months, of...

Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...

An Afternoon with an Aston Martin DB3S

The Deputy Editor airs the Midlands Motor Museum's Works Team car When I announced to a couple of Aston Martin enthusiast friends that I was to drive an Aston Martin DB3S - an ex Team car at that - they said knowledgeably: "A better car on the road than the circuit, you know." They may well be right, for the DB3S was less highly strung than some of its thoroughbred sports/racing contemporaries,...

X-ray spec: Ferguson - Novi

Despite scoring Formula One's only win for four-wheel drive, this British company's system appeared better suited to Indianapolis. By Keith Howard. Funded by Harry Ferguson, but inspired by Freddie Dixon and Tony Rolt, Ferguson Research Ltd. spent a fruitless 15 years after WWII trying to promote its four-wheel drive vision to an apathetic motor industry. Then in 1960 it decided on the not...

100 years of Maserati

It seems so improbable: a century has elapsed since Alfieri Maserati set up shop in Bologna, initially carrying out general engineering work and perfecting his own brand of spark plugs. Scroll forward to the present, and his surname is synonymous with exotic GTs and illustrious racing cars. Alfieri and his siblings forged a legend, one that cannot be distilled into an attention-grabbing soundbite...

Miscellany

The popular VMCC Banbury Run for pre-1931 motorcycles returns to Banbury this year, on June 18, centred on Drayton School. I am glad to note that the 'Banbury' is for vintage bikes, that there was a run for those with gas lamps, and that the VMCC Founder, CE 'Fitch' Allen, BEM, is still active. * * * The VSCC of America, Inc asks me to make it clear that, founded in 1958, it catered only for...

The hot seat

This is my first issue of Motor Sport, and I feel privileged to take over the editor’s chair on such a respected title; a magazine I have read since… well, since I could read. I’m the 17th person to hold the position and I’ve joined at a great time, as the magazine moves towards its 84th year of publication with a fresh design and renewed vigour. And what an issue to start with. My first day on...
