Raymond Mays Makes Fastest Time At Shelsley Walsh

Outstanding Runs by Poore, Wharton and Betty Haig AT the Shelsley Walsh Meeting on June 10th the sun shone so strongly that the tar on the road melted and fast times were impossible. What with sun-tops, bare midriffs, shorts, and weird head-coverings, quite a "Freiberg" atmosphere prevailed. Curiously, in spite of plentiful petrol, the crowd was about the smallest we have seen at Shelsley---call...

Industrial Ruin

Sir, I wonder how many readers of MOTORSPORT realise that they are witnessing the demise of the British motor industry. With the imminent replacement of the Metro, Maestro and Montego by Honda-inspired models, there will be no wholly British cars in quantity production. Foreign manufacturers may have assembly lines in Britain, but they employ relatively few skilled workers or technical staff. So...

Good sport at Castle Combe

The Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. opened its 1953 season at the splendid Castle Combe circuit on Easter Saturday, when an excellent entry of 89 sports and Formula Ill cars was received. The meeting was run to schedule before quite a nice crowd of spectators and good sport witnessed. Our only complaint concerns the racket worked by the caterers, who not only demanded 1s. deposit on their cups—sensible...

The Final Club Silverstone Meeting of 1953

N. Staffs M.C. Run Many Well-Supported Races October 10th, one of the lovely autumn days which we enjoyed in the early part of this month, saw the North Staffs M.C. holding the last of the Club Silverstone Meetings of 1953. Very large fields were a feature of almost all the races but, notwithstanding, the meeting terminated just after 4 p.m., having commenced at 11.30 a.m. The seven-lap scratch...

Hawthorn and the "Flying Horse" 100 per cent. Successful at Silverstone

Accidents Mar the Blandford Trophy Meeting

Shillito (Riley) Wins the Formula II Race, Dryden (Cooper) the 500-c.c. Race One's sympathy is extended to the W. Hants and Dorset C.C., whose ambitious race meeting at Blandford Camp on August 27th was marred by serious accidents. The organisation was first-class, the races run off promptly and the Press service excellent, but unfortunately three serious accidents occurred. In the third race...

Sporting Weekend Abroad

Whitsun. The number of motor races being held in Europe increases every year and at Whitsuntide this year things reached a complete impasse, for there were five events of equal importance due to be held on Whit Sunday. These were the Eifel Races at Nurburgring in North-west Germany, the Grand Prix des Frontieres at Chimay, in Belgium, the Grand Prix Supercortemaggiore at Monza, the 12 Hours of...
