  • Description

    The big controversy in Grand Prix racing born of the deaths of Luigi Musso, Peter Collins, Archie Scott-Brown, the Marquis de Portago and other top-class drivers, braked sharply in London yesterday August 26 with the pronouncement that present-day lightweight cars are neither too light nor too fast.

    The men who know: Mike Hawthorn, Stirling Moss and Roy Salvadori. They are the men at the top in Grand Prix racing, the men whose closest rivals and best friends raced to their deaths in world championships.

    After a two hour meeting yesterday called by the Royal Automobile Club - representatives of Britain on the International Sports Commission - came the decision to press for a status quo in the formula of lightweight cars.

    S.O.F. Hawthorn, Moss, Salvadori and John Cooper, the racing manufacturer, commenting.
