Continental Notes and News

THE SPORT ABROAD. Continental Notes and News. WITH the coming of April the motor racing season may be said to open in earnest, and the first really big event of the Continental Feason, the Italian 1,000 Miles Race, is due to take place on the 11th and 12th of the month. The Alfa-Romeo firm, which has won the race for the last three years, is, of course, again going to make a big effort, and...

No medals for rule meddling

Doug Nye is remarkably prescient in this month’s Motor Sport. When he filed his story about Formule Libre and mused how ‘run what you brung’ could find itself back in fashion in these straitened times, we had no idea that within a matter of days the FIA would announce an unfettered (at-a-price) Formula 1 rules package for 2010. Spooky. It was almost as if they knew… It’s not quite Formule Libre,...

Formula One: Australian Grand Prix

Bowing out Gerhard Berger sustained his winning momentum to reel off his second victory in a fortnight when the Grand Prix circus arrived in Adelaide for the Australian Grand Prix, the final round of the sixteen race 1987 World Championship series. Despite the fact that the 28-year-old Austrian was feeling distinctly below par all weekend with a raging sore throat and ear-ache, once strapped into...

Past winners flocked Monaco historic GP

No fewer than six Monaco Grand Prix-wining cars head a glittering entry for the second Grand Prix Historique, with Sir Stirling Moss reunited with Maserati 250F '2522' in which he triumphed in 1956, for an event which is guaranteed to bring the hallowed streets of Monte Carlo alive on May 27-28. Many other machines which shaped the history of the principality's famous race are coming from around...

Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 23 Hudson-Essex THE Hudson Motor Co. was founded in 1909 by Roscoe B. Jackson, R. D. Chapin and others, financial backing having come from Joseph L. Hudson of the great J. L. Hudson Company of America, Mr. Hudson being uncle of Mr. Jackson's wife. Hence the name Hudson for some of the U.S.A.'s most successful cars. The first model was the 4-cylinder Twenty and Hudsons were introduced to the U...

Bank Holiday Brands—September 3rd

Traditionally the Summer Bank Holiday meeting at Brands Hatch features powerful cars, and this year, after an apparently unsuccessful attempt with Formula Two in 1967, the organisers plumped for Group 4 with a huge supporting cast of Formula Three and saloon cars. The race carried added interest as it was the final and deciding round of the season-long R.A.C. Sports Car Championship. Prior to the...

Hates losing, is embarrassed by winning

As the Venturi-Larrousse team announces its plans, Robin Herd reflects on his rationale in F1 fourth time around "I think it's pretty normal with most sportsmen. I'm not saying I'm a top sportsman but certainly a lot of tennis players and golfers will tell you that losing is a much stronger emotion than winning." says Robin Herd. "It's the thrill of the chase. Stevenson said. 'It's better to...

Aaltonen back in mini at race retro

Some great weather and some exceptional cars kept enthusiasts happy at the 2009 edition of Race Retro, at Stoneleigh, Warks. It was great to see Rauno Aaltonen reunited with his original 1964 Monte Carlo Rally Mini Cooper S, before he joined Mark Higgins in the 2008 Aston Martin GT V8 rally car. Another reunion involved Russell Brookes and his Opel Manta and Sierra Cosworth. On top of all that...

Article on Austin

Sir, Regarding the article on Austin 7, CA 6577, perhaps you would be interested in the following. I purchased the original 1924 CA 6577 in 1955, for £10, from a gentleman in, or rear, Twickenham. It had been unused since 1933, when the body had been removed to facilitate storage! Due to lack of time, I sold the car to my cousin and helped him to construct a Special. This had a Cambridge body,...
