Martini Trophy Meeting (July 6th)

The National Open Martini Trophy Meeting, with five races round the full Silverstone circuit, organised by the Aston Martin O.C. in conjunction with the Martini International Club, was marred by bad luck and bad weather. In practice on the Friday the Hon. J. Dawnay lost his Aston Martin DBR1/300 at Woodcote and spun into M. Fielden's Lotus standing at the pits. The driver, who was sitting in the...

Boxing Day Brands Hatch (December 26th)

The opening event of the day for G.T. cars gave another victory to Graham Warner's Lotus Elite from Chris Lawrence's more accelerative Morgan Plus 4 which held the lead for a couple of laps. Cohn Hextall moved up into third place in his Thunderbolt while Pat Moss in her first real motor race (although some rallies appear to be thinly disguised races) kept the Sprinzel-Sprite in eighth place. The...

R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship—1963

The R.A.C. British Hill-Climb Championship season commenced on April 27th with the Severn Valley M.C.'s Hill-Climb on the lengthened 900-yd. course.

Wiscombe Park (April 6/7th)

Opening the Wiscombe Park Hill-Climb on April 6/7th was a two-day event organised by the Aston Martin Owners' Club.

Mallory Park (April 15th)

Despite running a Brands Hatch Meeting on the same day, the B.R. & S.C.C.'s National British Mallory Park race meeting produced a good entry with the exception of the Formula Junior race, which had only eight contestants. The main attraction of the nine-race programme was the 20-lap Formule Libre race, won by Tony Marsh's 2 1/2-litre B.R.M. from John Taylor's 1 1/2-litre Cooper-Ford and Brian...

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....

The 19th British Grand Grix

Team Lotus Dominate Silverstone, England, July 15th The choice of the R.A.C. fell on Silverstone this year, so with the help of the B.R.D.C. and most of the country's motor clubs the British Grand Prix was held on the wide open spaces of the airfield circuit. Entry was by invitation and all the big teams were represented along with more than the usual number of private owners, some newcomers...

Shelsley Walsh's 90th

In the old-fashioned English summer we have been experiencing this year, the 90th birthday of the oldest speed venue in this country, Shelsley Walsh in the peaceful Teme Valley, was celebrated on August 13. It was also the occasion of the 13th round of the RAC Hillclimb Championship — the 12th, at Craigantlet, another long-lived venue, had been abandoned after the fatal accident to Mark Colton in...

A mini adventure

40 years ago Goodwood held its last Formula One race. It was the final year of the 1.5-litre formula, which despite its critics provided some of the finest racing ever at the Sussex track. By Gordon Cruickshank. Photography by James Mann.   Picture it. The FIA has just decreed that racing's top formula will now run with 2-litre engines. Instantly the field is open to a stack of small teams, and...

Going West

On a journey to Wiltshire last month I spent an interesting afternoon with Mr Freddie Henry, 'talking Austin'. He started an apprenticeship with the Longbridge Company in 1926 and remained with Lord Austin's concern for many years thereafter. He shared lodgings with Ralph Secretan, who spoke fluent German and helped Austin on visits to that country, etc, and who bought a Bugatti from Malcolm...
