The Henderson Napier Rolls-Royce

Sir, I was very interested to see a photograph of one of my old cars in the November issue of Motor Sport, page 1148, "The Henderson Napier Rolls-Royce". I bought this Car, LX 4377, from Colonel Henderson on the condition that he should deliver it to me in Glasgow by road. He accomplished this run in one day on about 40 gallons of petrol.

GRAND PRIX de la BAULE. Etancelin, Wimille and Zehender on 2.3 Alfas, and Guerin on one of the old 2-litre Guyot Specials.

Eyston was victorious at the wheel of a Bugatti. The race is similar to the Southport 100 Mile...

So near, yet so far

It will be a long time before Damon Hill forgets about the German Grand Prix.

"This disappointment is about a million times worse than...

Modern Times

By Simon Taylor Every Newspaper and Magazine I pick up seems to be telling me that 1998 is going to be the most completely new and different Grand Prix season anyone can remember. A fascinating and unpredictable prospect. A clean sheet of paper. A whole new ballgarne. Well, they say that every year.

Fragments on forgottten makes No 71: The New British

Readers of Motor Sport  are very co-operative in keeping me in touch with odd items of motoring history which appear from time to time in unexpected places. Thus we were recently sent a cutting from a paper with the splendid title of the Black Country Bugle dealing with the short-lived New British light-car. The paper had devoted nearly a page to this forgotten car but its Editor generously gave...

Love Thy Neighbour?

What went on in the Williams pit as its cars raced wheel-to-wheel for the Australian GP? Mark Skewis listens in Where most teams step in with team orders at the merest hint of conflict between its drivers, Williams traditionally leaves its men to settle their own disputes.
