The sports-model Altas

Alta, the product of keen engineering fettler Geoffrey Taylor, is a comparatively neglected sports-car. Even books devoted expressly to sports cars either omit it or give it very little space. Yet this admittedly small-production British make not only made a number of successful competition apearances but Alta engines were used by British racing teams of the calibre of HWM and Connaught. It is....

Sixth Grand Prix of Mexico

Clark all the Way Mexico City, October 22nd. Twenty entries were invited for this year's Mexican Grand Prix, which took place at the same time as the Mini-Olympics. Of the 20, 19 were all ready for the first four-hour practice session on Friday afternoon, the one missing car being the Cooper down to be driven by Rindt. This was withdrawn due to a haggle over starting money which the Austrian...

Reflections – Button feel-good factor lost in diffuser row – Why Lewis should share in McLaren’s shame – A childhood trip to Aintree and glory for Behra What a pity it is, in these early races of this World Championship season, that controversies elsewhere have rather shaded the achievements of Jenson Button. In his rage over the diffuser dispute Flavio Briatore may have denigrated Button – and...

Williams FW18

Williams has achieved massive success since it scored its first Grand Prix win in 1979, but none of the team's cars has been anywhere near as successful as last year's Renault-powered FW18. World Champion Damon Hill and runner-up Jacques Villeneuve won 12 of the 16 Grands Prix, a record bettered only by McLaren's unrepeatable 15 wins with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost back in 1988, when Honda got...

Driven by design

The greatest racing car designer of his generation was curious: how would it feel it away from the drawing board and be let loose in two of his own creations spanning 20 years of Formula 1 evolution? When Adrian Newey asked, we were thrilled to oblige BY DAMIEN SMITH Early September, a couple of days after the Belgian Grand Prix and a few before the Italian at Monza. Christian Homer has just...

Vintage Veerings

Those clubs who are fortunate in being invited to hold rallies and driving tests at Esso House, near Abingdon, are fortunate indeed. The Esso organisation not only places its estate roads, which wind amongst charming thatched cottages and neat laboratories, at the disposal of competitors, and marks out the tests with white lines and clean Esso oil drums, but provides every competitor and official...

Continental Notes

The Formula One Constructors Under most circumstances I am in favour of dictators, providing their ideas coincide with mine, and particularly in motor racing I like dictators. Ettore Bugatti never stood any nonsense from anyone, nor did Enzo Ferrari or Tony Vandervell, neither does Colin Chapman. When things become on friendly and democratic confusion and indecision usually take over and for this...
