Book reviews

Road Motor sport cinema is presently all the rage – the BBC even has a 1970s F1 drama brewing – but it’s unlikely that much will ever match this for power and raw emotion. Narrated by Liam Neeson, ROAD looks at the world of motorcycle road racing through two generations of the Dunlop family, brothers Joey and Robert and their nephews/sons Michael and William. The headline stories might be...

V-E-V Odds & Ends

Austin 7s seem apt to go to ground in Wales! Apart from the two-seater we mentioned last month, a late-model Ruby saloon which had been in a shed in a Powys town, we believe since the war, was given away by its lady owner last Christmas and was in such good order, apart from the bumpers, that it was able to be driven away to its new home on the coast after the tyres and pneumatic upholstery had...

Books and films

Hard Luck LloydJohn Lingle Lloyd Ruby’s Indycar career didn’t boast the results his talent and determination warranted, with only seven wins to his name. Much of that was down to luck and circumstance (his sports car record boasted two Daytona victories and one at Sebring and he was one of Carroll Shelby’s go-to guys) and this book aims to set the record straight about ‘the greatest driver never...

PREPARING FOR THE MONTE CARLO RALLY SOME PROBLEMS WHICH CONFRONT THE SUB-ARCTIC MOTORIST. By T. G. MOORE. ONE of the great differences between rallies and all other forms of motor sport and one of their charms lies in the fact that in the former so much is left for better or worse to the choice of the individual. Shall he start from a distant control or a more civilised centre is it worth trying...

Serious Opposition

Audi makes its most telling assault yet on the medium saloon sector, wherein the 3-series and the C-class have reigned for so long Audi management probably drew a collective breath of relief when they saw the final drawings for the new A4. They must have known that they'd hit the jackpot with this compact yet immensely handsome form, though it wasn't necessarily blessed with the required dynamic...

Lunch with... David Hobbs

The results didn't always come his way, but over three decades this expat Brit enjoyed the sort of variety in his racing career that today's F1 stars can only dream about, By Simon Taylor David Hobbs is 71 now, still the quintessential Englishman with the deadpan humour that stayed with him through a 30-year-plus racing career. By his own assessment, misfortune and missed opportunities meant he...

Lunch with… Norman Dewis

During 33 years and more than a quarter of a million 100mph miles, Norman Dewis was a dedicated team player who helped make Jaguar great By Simon Taylor Marque loyalty is an old-fashioned concept these days.

My Motoring Month

Tempted by an Exquisitely Restored E-Type This month saw a couple of wonderful steps into Jaguar history. First was a trip to see Henry Pearman at Eagle, the man who'll take a rusty old E-type and turn it into something far better than even Sir William would have ever imagined. I've always had a hankering for an E, failing to be put off even by a rather tired 4.2-litre 2+2 coupe that made a brief...
