Tasman Championship

This year the Tasman series was held over four races in New Zealand and three in Australia, all except one being of about 100 miles in length, the odd one out being the 75-mile Levin race. The Tasman organisers still insist on running their races to a 2½-litre engine capacity limit, but in spite of this a few European racing-car builders are prepared to build special engines for this obsolete...

MOTOR SHOW 82 It used to be the case that the launching of a new model actually took place on the manufacturer's stand at one of the important Motor Shows. Today. not only have those in the trade already seen, and sometimes driven, the supposedly secret product, but the general public too will have been fed more-or-less unofficial leakages, together with grainy photographs of prototypes in...

Lunch with... David Piper

He is the farmer turned privateer racer who spent years touring Europe, and winning in a succession of great sports cars. Today 'Piper green' Ferraris still grace historic events In motor sport these days, the term ‘privateer’ has fallen into disuse. Outside the professional teams, most serious racers either have access to much personal wealth – their own or somebody else’s – or a commercial...

Winter racing

SOUTH AFRICA The South African season of International races, held in December and January, had a small number of European contestants doing the "tour" of four events. The races were limited to 1,500-c.c. cars so can count as Formula One events, except that whereas the F.I.A. Formula puts a bottom limit of 1,300 c.c. the South African races allowed Formula Junior cars to participate. RAND G.P.—...

Hot VWs

Following the article we published last January on an M.A.G.-supercharged Volkswagen, we have received many enquiries, while details of other "souped-up"  VWs have been coming at us thick and fast!

Portrait of the artist as a racing driver

For 50 years Leslie Marr has been best known as a painter. But before that he bought himself a Connaught and went racing By Paul Fearnley Nursing a bruised face – and a consoling beer – while standing in the raised bucket of a mechanical digger on the outskirts of New Zealand’s southernmost city is an unusual way to conclude a motor racing career, but Leslie Lynn Marr has rarely taken the obvious...
