Here Brian Muir and Andy Rouse take Paddock Bend at Brands Hatch side-by-side with Vince Woodman shadowing. Left, driving a highly modified Ralt the dedicated Barzilian Nelson Piquet took an easy overall...

National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

£10,000+ raised by private Porsche

Over £10,000 toward the Gunnar Nilsson fund was raised by the enterprise of Henley-on-Thames exotic car dealers Maltins. As the key to their fund-raising activities they chose to run a Porsche 924 round the clock at Silverstone and a series of night public road runs. After auctioning the car at the end - it performed perfectly so far as we are aware, 7,575 miles covered in that seven days and...

New Pilbeam

Former BRM designer Mike Pilbeam is making a return to the international racing scene with a brand new Formula Two "wing car", constructed in his Bourne workshop.

The 1974 RAC Tourist Trophy

Silverstone In an attempt to bring some semblance of reality to the Tourist Trophy race, this year's event was for production saloon cars with hmited modifications, to what might be termed Group 1½. The very full and varied entry indicated that this was a move in the right direction and no single make dominated the scene, which was refreshing to the onlookers.

The great Juan Manuel never won at the track, but his nephew Juan Manuel II looked set to nip this trait in the bud on his first appearance there — until the last lap but one. The lightweight E-type Fangio was sharing with Gary Pearson in the one-hour TT Celebration race was initially involved in a spectacular fight...

Touring Round

Honours were well distributed in the Castrol Anniversary Touring Car Championship There were a lot of doubting Thomases around, including this writer, when the RAC decided to make its British Touring Car Championship for 1974 open to Group 1 production saloons only.

50 years on

In order to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, the HSCC hosted a one-off two-day Historic race meeting at Donington Park, and with the assistance of a number of specialist clubs and groups, including the VSCC and HGPCA, assembled a quite superb entry, which, in terms of variety and quality, was second only to the Coys Festival in the British racing calendar, with on-track action being...
