Reflections – Brundle says Sky coverage will be for the purists – Senna’s Williams ride removes Barrichello from F1 – Toro Rosso recruits know to whom they must aspire Although the 2011 Grand Prix season was dominated by Sebastian Vettel and his Red Bull RB7, I think most would agree that, in terms of racing, it was substantially a better year than for a long time. Some of this, true, was...

Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year. When the British summer broke with a vengeance for part of Sunday, it did little to dilute the sizeable crowd's enjoyment....

Club News

South Wales A.C. It was very disappointing that the South Wales A.C. should have had such a bad day for the first of their speed events on their new hill on April 3rd. The heavy hill mist and rain never let up for a moment and reduced the visibility on the 600-yard course to something like 50 to 60 yards, making organising an extremely difficult and very wet job. That this was achieved with the...

The Formula One Scene

IT IS with some relief that I welcome in 1982, for it means that the 1981 season is really over and the sooner we forget it the better. In the past we have had the silly season, which is usually a brief moment at the height of the summer, but 1981 was a silly season from start to finish. It began with the absurd idea that the Formula One Constructors Association was more powerful that the...

Where there's a Williams...

Yet another Williams victory! Mansell? No. Patrese? No. Prost doing some pre-season testing? No — they were racing for the Motor Sport Trophy for historic F1 and F5000 cars, and the victorious Williams pilot was John Fenning. That was the headline race at the HSCC meeting at Silverstone on September 19, which also featured the annual Motor Sport concours, bringing together sporting cars of preand...

Too much Kant

Sir, My favourite philosopher is Friedrich Hegel. In 1800 he published a thesis proving that there could only be seven planets. On the first of January 1801 the eighth planet was discovered.I find that the output of pundits offers similar pleasures. Those who predict the future are responsible for much wry amusement. The time-interval between prediction and it being refuted may be fractions of a...

The vintage years of the Morgan 3-wheeler

(Continued from the July issue) 1926.—Enthusiasm for Morgan was unabated, in spite of one unkind cartoon which depleted a Grand Prix Morgan and two kids in a pram, the caption reading "The Two-Seater They Talk About Before Marriage—And The One They Get!" One Aero owner made a replica of his car to a scale of 3/4 in. = 1 ft. and set it up on the Morgans radiator cap; and in the serious sphere of...

Analysing one Rosberg, relecting upon another and fond memories of a chat with Ferrari’s first World Championship Grand Prix winner González, recently departed If the recent form of Nico Rosberg has caused many to re-evaluate a driver long considered something of an enigma in formula 1, so it has also inevitably put Michael Schumacher’s ‘second career’ into fresh perspective. it may have fallen...

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Presteigne Rally (October 5/6th) The annual Vintage S.C.C. Presteigne Rally has a tradition dating back to pre-war days and this year the pilgrimage into wild wet Welsh Wales again took place and the old cars were once again given the freedom of Presteigne. A very big entry had been received, numbering 59 for the Sunday trial alone, which, in...
