Trevor Taylor remembers...

In this day and age of “big money” Grand Prix motor racing, it is difficult to imagine any driver maintaining the same life style after he finished his active participation as he followed before he was involved. Even moderately successful Formula One drivers can earn a reasonable living out of the game and many people quite rightly feel that this desire to sustain a certain standard of living has...

Lotus 20/22

With Formula Junior regaining popularity, now’s the time to invest in one of Colin Chapman’s creations. Which type will you go for?By Richard Heseltine It always was a catchy title. Fifty years young, Formula Junior is undergoing something of a renaissance, an under-the-radar second – or possibly third – coming with packed grids attracting newbies and old hands alike to entry-level historic...

The rest of the Silverstone circus

Not content with the Grand Prix there was a fiesta of fun and sport for the spectators. The day opened with the 25-lap Sports-Car Race, in which Flockhart ran right away from the field in the Coombs' 2-litre Cooper-Monaco after Dickson's Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco had retired from the lead with transmission failure. Ashdown's 1,100 Lola made all the big cars look ridiculous by holding second...

THE R.A.C. TOURIST TROPHY

An Interesting Experiment OULTON PARK, May 1st. AFTER some rather uninspiring years at Goodwood, the T.T. moved to the pleasant parkland circuit at Oulton Park for this year's race, and was organised by the B.A.R.C. for the R.A.C., with the co-operation of the Cheshire Car Circuit Ltd., and financed by the Senior Service cigarette company. Somehow, the idea of a T.T. race on anything other than a...

Continental Notes

The dreadful accident at the end of the French Grand Prix at Rouen demands comment, and it is to be hoped that many lessons will have been learnt. At most French races the crowds tend to swarm on to the track as soon as the winner is flagged in, and to prevent this happening rows of police, or gendarmes, line the barriers to control the crowds. At Rouen this was done with a row of police between...

Modern Times

Today, if you're an F1 driver, that's what you do. There's no mom in your life for any other motorsport. As well as 17 races, there's all that testing: once the FIA's November ban is over, most teams move straight into a hectic programme. McLaren are hard at it in Spain from Monday 4 December. Plus jetting from country to country to remind the fans of the virtues of your sponsor's products....

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...

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...
