Bernie the team player

Mr Bernard Charles Ecclestone has many claims to fame – not least as a serial Formula 1 team owner.

Swan Song

The Connaught Story Part 4 It is ironic that the Connaught Type B was the company's most successful car, for it was conceived as a stop-gap, against the time when a suitable engine would allow an advanced, rear-engined, monocoque design to be completed. It is ironic, too, that the team's most stirring performances should have come in the final twelve months or so of its existence when its...

Second B.A.R.C. Members' Meeting At Goodwood
