Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

Jim Russell wins wet British Empire Trophy Race

The British Empire Trophy, one of Britain's oldest races has been held yearly except for the war years since 1932, but has seldom proved a racing or commercial success. The latest in the series, held as a F2 race on Saturday, April 11th, did little to disprove this reputation. The first Empire Trophy race was won by John Cobb in the 10-1/2-litre Delage on the Brooklands Outer Circuit at 126.36 m....

XXIII Pau Grand Prix: A Team Lotus demonstration

Pau, France, April 15th With Easter being rather early the traditional Pau Grand Prix, held on Easter Monday, suffered from many possible entries not being ready, neither Ferrari nor A.T.S. being sufficiently advanced with their new cars to take part in the 100-lap "round-the-houses" race. Fifteen drivers were assembled for the first practice, which took place on Saturday afternoon, but only...

An easy rider born to drive

Gary Hocking called a premature halt to his meteoric bike career in 1962. He felt Formula One was a safer option... Paul Fearnley recalls a talent that shone brightly, but much too briefly It was a remarkable opening lap of a remarkable circuit. Rhodesia's Gary Hocking had been drawn at six, his MV Agusta team-mate Mike Hailwood at three and his good friend, Honda's Aussie charger Tom Phillis,...

Brands Hatch – Inter-Continental

The 200-mile Guards Trophy race at Brands Hatch on August 7th may well be the final fling of the Inter-Continental Formula. This rather mis-named formula, which has seen little foreign opposition for the British cars, has taken a poor second place to the new Formula 1. Stirling Moss, who has won three Inter-Continental races so far (Goodwood and the two Silverstone races) will once again drive...

Delirium Tremens -- Jo Siffert remembered

An indomitable will to win IN 1948 at Bremgarten a 12 year-old Swiss boy watched, entranced, as a Frenchman wove his magic driving a Gordini. The boy's name was Joseph Siffert, the Frenchman's Raymond Sommer. Coeur de Lion, they called the latter, Lionheart. It was his name long before anyone ever thought of coining it for Nigel Mansell, and Sommer was an artist, a man to whom the manner in...

J.Stewart (B.R.M. V8) Wins Tasman Championship

Warwick Farm Races Sydney (February 13th) 45 laps, 161 kilometres For the Australian races Graham Hill rejoined the B.R.M. team of 2-litre cars and Attwood was stood down. Clark had things go right for a change with the Lotus 39 fitted with a 4-cylinder 2 1/2-litre Coventry-Climax engine, and had an easy win at Warwick Farm, but Stewart spun early in the race and damaged a wheel rim, which...

Silverstone snippets

Racing is only part of the Historic weekend: visitors needed strong legs to tour all the sights, car and star-spotting. There was a Jaguar re-union of 'Lofty' England, with Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt and the C-type with which they scored their memorable 1953 Le Mans win, immediately before David Brabham, one of the drivers of the GT class-winning X1220C at the Sarthe this year, took over the...

Race of Champions

A Great Day for Anglo-American Racers Brands Hatch, March 12th: With the help of the Daily Mail newspaper the B.R.S.C.C. revived their Race of Champions, which was first organised in 1965, and they gathered in an excellent entry of Grand Prix cars and drivers, the only notable omissions being the works teams of Lotus and B.R.M. Details of the cars and drivers are enlarged upon in a separate...

Coup de Grace

1968:Final season, last works driver Vic Elford was a rally star, but F1 is where he wanted to be. Delighted to be given his chance by Cooper, he discovered a once-great team on the verge of extinction It was 1968. I had already won that year's Monte Carlo Rally, Daytona 24 Hours, Targa Florio and Nurburgring 1000Km — but only now was I about to realise my true dream: to race in Formula One....
