TheVRL News Brief

Jim Clark's Lotus 33 R11 makes first public appearance in more than 40 years at Race Retro 2017

In the annals of motor racing, few machines are as iconic as the Lotus-Climax Type 33, chassis number R11, the car driven by Jim Clark to first place in the 1965 Belgian, British, German and Syracuse Grands Prix and the Lotus in which he won his second World Championship. It is only right that this amazing piece of motorsport history be the centrepiece of the MotorSport Hall of Fame at Race Retro, the international historic motorsport show, held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, England, from 24 – 26 February, where R11 will make its first public appearance in over four decades.

SVRA adds hill climb event in North Carolina

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) recently announced that the vintage racing organization will host a hill climb event for the first time near the historic "Tail of the Dragon," one of the most heavily traveled sport bike and car enthusiast roads in America. Called "Slaying the Dragon," the new event will take place on what is considered one of the safest competition hill climb roads in America.

2017 Arizona collector car auctions: It's gonna be huge (probably)

Optimism and bravado combined with nonstop TV coverage and the high-proof auction juice served up at bidders’ bars in copious amounts can make for a mix more potent than Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway’s notorious absinthe-laden cocktail. This year’s Scottsdale auctions — headlined by the colossus that is Barrett-Jackson — could be among the biggest seen in the Valley of the Sun since the subprime-mortgage meltdown of 2008.

Gilda, a sublime 1955 turbine car, offered at Barrett-Jackson

From a time when designers and engineers were attempting to blend automobiles with jet aircraft comes the 1955 Chrysler Ghia Streamline X, nicknamed Gilda after the Hollywood film and its glamorous leading lady, Rita Hayworth. Gilda was a concept car commissioned by Chrysler design chief Virgil Exner and styled by Giovanni Savonuzzi with coachwork by Ghia of Turin, Italy. It was first shown at the 1955 Turin Motor Show, where it created a sensation. Remarkably streamlined after wind-tunnel experimentation, Gilda is considered to be a breakthrough design that influenced styling features from Chrysler for the rest of the decade.

Formula 1 cars will corner 'up to 25 mph faster' for 2017

F1 cars will see some major changes for 2017. Compared to last season, they'll be wider and lower, which we've heard will increase cornering speeds and reduce lap times by as much as five seconds. Now, we've got a handle on just how much faster they'll be in the corners, and it's a lot. Motorsport reports that according to F1's deputy race director Laurent Mekies, "every single team has been asked to provide simulations for their 2017 cars. We used these simulations to feed our simulation software," Mekies told reporters. "We therefore simulated every single track with the 2017 car, so there is much higher cornering speed. It's up to 40 km/h [25 mph] faster in high-speed corners."
