The 20th International British Empire Trophy Meeting

Moss wins with works Aston Martin and equals Gerard's record Held on April 12th at its now traditional venue, the most excellent 2.76-mile road circuit at Oulton Park, Cheshire, the 20th International British Empire Trophy race provided an unexpectedly easy win for Stirling Moss, in a works-entered 3.9-litre DBR2 Aston Martin, after mechanical trouble had eliminated the only effective opposition...

Risk and renumeration

A recent conversation with Tony Brooks highlighted the gulf in pay between then and now – the chances of a driver surviving a crash are higher, too Stirling Moss has always been a fan of his former Vanwall and Aston Martin team-mate, Tony Brooks. Tony was wonderfully neat, stylish and tidy as well as being blindingly fast. He was plainly one of the racing world’s top three drivers. He famously...

Heroes of the Revival The Goodwood meeting was packed with stars, but this trio’s presence was particularly appreciated As far as I’m concerned there were three real heroes of the recent Goodwood Revival Meeting: Sir Jack and Lady Brabham, and dear old Win Percy. ‘Black Jack’ at 81 has been in kidney failure for some time now. He requires dialysis three times per week, yet he – so ably cossetted...

Reflections – The return of Räikkönen, the decline of Massa – How the party turned sour for Ireland at Lotus Save that the order was different – and unique in 2011 – with Mark Webber winning and Sebastian Vettel finishing second, the Grand Prix season finale in Brazil was pretty much a reflection of the whole year: the Red Bulls away on their own, with McLaren next up and then Ferrari (or, to be...

Book news

The spate of motoring books, many of them admittedly of a very high standard and quite irresistible to true enthusiasts, shows no signs of diminishing to any appreciable degree. One hears that Ronald Barker is working on a sports-car history for Batsford which will presumably sort out the complexities of the many and confusing French and Italian fast cars, and that E. R. Hall may compile his life...

The green shoots of sponsorship

As the first fully-backed team in Formula 1, the British Racing Partnership was envied by the works teams – who finally shut them out It’s what every team manager dreams of: a generous sponsor, a big budget, top cars and someone the press can call the world’s best driver. Today it’s the standard objective. Fifty years ago, when sponsorship meant little more than free tyres and oil, it seemed – to...

Goodwood Festival of Speed: Pictorial Review

The sight and sound of the sole surviving V16 Auto Union mountain climb car, a great silver fish of a machine which slithered and growled under expert control, twin rear wheels scrabbling for grip in the omni-present rain, was as unforgettable to the 100,000 people who watched, entranced, at the fifth Goodwood Festival of Speed, as it was to its driver, Hans-Joachim Stuck.

Unfortunately there wasn't space to mention his rally exploits, so I thought I would share with you my memories of when I co-drove him in the 1996 RAC Rally, when it was still a proper RAC spread throughout the UK. Anyone on that year's event will never forget the atrocious conditions, with heavy snow and ice...
