the big picture

The Aston Martin DB3S didn’t give Jaguar the bloody nose that boss David Brown might have hoped for (p106), but at Le Mans in 1956 it got close to causing an upset. Here the works Aston of Brits Stirling Moss and Peter Collins chases the Ecurie Ecosse D-type of Ninian Sanderson and Ron Flockhart watched by marshals, gendarmes and a scattering of spectators. The two cars would finish in the same positions, with the Jaguar’s extra 45bhp – and resultant 156.8mph top speed on the Mulsanne to the Aston’s 142.6mph – giving a significant advantage. However, the guile of Moss and Collins meant that the Aston completed just one lap fewer than the Jag, six more than the Ferrari of Olivier Gendebien and Maurice Trintignant in third.…


We make no apologies for all the Goodwood coverage this month. On the heels of a rejuvenated Festival of Speed (p14), C&SC is thrilled to reintroduce our Revival preview (p171). Not only does it give us a glimpse of the races, cars, drivers and displays we’ll be able to enjoy in September, but it also gives us a chance to explore the inspiration behind the Duke of Richmond and his team’s perfectly executed period re-enactments. None will be more poignant than a parade to mark 75 years since D-Day. On p180, Jack Phillips tells the story of those who proved their bravery in the theatre of war as well as on the track. The tribute is all the more appropriate because one of those heroes was Tony Gaze who, though not…

where the stars meet

The Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking over the Duke of Richmond’s expansive garden from 4-7 July, had just about everything: sun, supercars, stars and showers. Gone was the Moving Motor Show of Thursday, organisers preferring instead to stretch out the main event for four full days. And as ever with the Festival of Speed, such is its sheer size, it’s impossible to see everything and all too easy to get lost in searching for that car you’ve glimpsed and not remembered where. It’s best to focus out and absorb the sights, sounds and smells almost by osmosis. The hillclimb has become a reined-in, safety-first jaunt for many, more show than speed, but this year things were different – for one car at least. Romain Dumas and the Volkswagen ID.R electric prototype toppled…

abarth scores a giant-killing

The moment Nicolas Edel’s lithe Abarth 250 Monza appeared on the Cartier Style et Luxe lawn it was a hit. It featured in a fascinating Abarth tribute, which included several cars from the Möll Collection, and was an outsider for the win. Particularly against a beautiful set of Bugattis styled by Ettore’s talented son, Jean, and an Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato. But, after passionate debate among the star judges, the one-of-three Abarth beat the Type 57SC Atalante of Friedhelm Loh. Marc Newsome, designer and Bugatti collector, voted for the Bugatti. “Its styling has everything – dramatic tension, voluptuous proportions, and engineering pedigree,” argued the Australian. “In comparison the Abarth is an Italian kit car.” Though all the designers voted for the coachbuilt Molsheim beauty, the Abarth stole the heart of the majority…

our festival picks

PORSCHE 908/03 Perhaps it’s because the Porsche 917 has been grabbing the headlines this year, perhaps it’s the fact that it holds so many stories of Sicilian roads, perhaps it’s because of the model I have seemingly always had; but the Porsche 908/03 is always a joy. Tiny beside 917s and the 935 – despite it being the 2.0 ‘baby’ 935! – it is a pure sports-racer that totally encapsulates ’70s sports car racing. JP BRABHAM BT26 This is where it all began for Williams, yet most preferred the modern cars beside. More important, surely, than ‘Red Five’ that was breaking records at Bonhams (The marketplace, p207). The talented Piers Courage claimed second place at Monaco in 1969 in this the team’s second GP start. Dark blue with white nose fins and V8…

super-size scramble takes off

Bicester Heritage upgraded its regular Sunday Scramble event on 23 June to create the inaugural Super Scramble – and it didn’t disappoint. The main addition in the transition from ‘Sunday’ to ‘Super’ was the use of the historic Oxfordshire site’s demonstration track, so visitors could see the cars in action, along with a series of curated display of vehicles around the restored Technical Site. The latter relegated visitors’ pre-’90 classics to the airfield car park, but these still formed an must-see element of the day. And that’s another change: the Super Scramble is a full-day affair, extended from the usual morning meet. Just as well, with so much to take in – including, as ever, the site’s specialists throwing open their doors to share their work. Scattered around them were the event’s…
