Parting Shot

Vic Elford gets a mixed reception from spectators on the Targa Florio. Elford shared his Porsche 908/03 with Gerard Larrousse, however the pair failed to finish after Elford hit a rock and shattered the suspension. With no Ferraris to cheer that year, the locals instead had to settle for the Alfa Romeo T33/3 driven by Nino Vaccarella and Toine Hezemans, which won. Presumably much to the delight...

Alfa Interlude

A reflection on 20 years endeavour after a day with a T33/3 V8 sports racer On October 28th, 1951 Juan-Manuel Fangio drove his 1 ½ -litre supercharged eight-cylinder Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 to victory in the Spanish Grand Prix on Barcelona’s now-defunct Pedralbes circuit, making the final triumph for the classic Alfetta design which had served the Italian team so successfully since the end of the...

Around and about

The GP Opel conclusion Last month we published pictorial proof that Opel I, described in Motor Sport for September 1977, and owned by Noel Mavrogordato, is the car which finished 10th in the 1914 French Grand Prix, driven by Carl Jorns and which came to Brooklands as Opel II, entered by Capt. A. G. Miller. Since then I have turned up some engine and chassis numbers for these cars, as declared...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...

Audits & Plaudits

In the final part of his Metro 6R4 story, John Davenport explains how he had to fight to keep the project's momentum going, how inter-company rivalries and red tape conspired against it, and how the team's efforts were rewarded by a euphoric World Championship debut Just as George Orwell gloomily predicted, 1984 started badly with Austin Rover Group endlessly embroiled in the pointless spat...

World Championship for Makes and World Championship for Sports Cars The story so far . . .

The story so far . . . When the Group 5 circus of so-called "Special Production Cars" comes to Brands Hatch on the 24th and 25th of September for the seventh round of the World Championship for Makes, the once fiercely contested title will have already been long decided in Porsche's favour. When this summary of the championship to date was written, the Canadian round at Mosport had still to take...

Martini Trophy

Hezemans Darts to victory Silverstone, June 5th. Two-litre sports-car racing at its very best came to Britain early in June when the Aston Martin Owners' Club ran their major meeting of the year, the Martini Trophy, around the European 2-litre Sports-Car Championship. The two-part Martini race itself was the third round of the series, which was instigated last year, and the first ever to be held...

My only Grand Prix

1978 US at Watkins Glen: by Michael Bleekemolen How did your Formula One chance with ATS arise at the back-end of 1978? I'd made an attempt to qualify a March entered by RAM Racing at the Dutch Grand Prix in 1977. It was a disaster and we'd tried unsuccessfully to arrange something with Ensign for the following year. Then my sponsor, F&S Properties, did a deal to buy me another one-off ride...

Masten memories

Sir, I deeply resent Mike Lawrence's remarks in your June issue concerning Masten Gregory, typically recounting the same anecdotes, not being too specific. Can he substantiate his allegations? The pejorative expression "habitual drug user" is a serious one which unfortunately can no longer instigate an accusation of calumny. If he's specifying that particular 1958 race at Silverstone, did he talk...
