The expensive Mr. Stewart

They don't love Jackie Stewart at Laguna SCCA, or the motoring writer of the San Francisco Chronicle doesn't. That paper pointed out last month that at the Mid-Ohio Raceway for a Can-Am event Stewart cost the track owners a small fortune in alterations to a circuit which has a good safety record. He "didn't like some trees here, a dirt bank there, or the arrangement of some guard rails". His...

The Maidstone and Mid-Kent M.C. National Silverstone Race Meeting (May 10th)

WHEN the Maidstone Club booked Silverstone for its annual race meeting last month it certainly had its money's worth. An excellent entry of 131 and ten races of 10 to 20 laps ensured a full day's sport, but watched by a very, small crowd. Starting-grid positions were decided by ballot, rendering the opening laps startling, and the marshals were kept on their feet by two accidents on the first lap...

George Wicken wins "Daily Telegraph" Trophy

A crowd of 46,000 watched thrilling racing, splendidly organised by the 500 Club under J. F. Gale, at Brands Hatch on August Bank Holiday. This was an International Meeting, but the only foreigners to appear were Johnie Claes (Cooper-J.A.P.), Lex Beels (Beels-J.A.P.) and Phil and Harry Schell (Cooper-J.A.P.s).

New Lap Record At Brands Hatch

The August meeting opened with a threat of indifferent weather but apart from one heavy shower there was virtually no rain. John Bolster should be congratulated upon his excellent commentary of the racing on the broadcast system.
