Comment   Closed Road Motorsport in the UK. Subject to agreement by the House of Commons and Lords, an amendment to the  existing Road Traffic Law will allow 'closed road' decisions to be made in future by the MSA. We still have a long way to go, however. For example, the police might not be too happy about the added responsibility and local other interest groups, such as cyclists, will want their share of available dates and venues. All-in-all though, with local councils desperate to make money, the move forward looks encouraging.

Retro-Fact  Alberto Ascari, famously known as the driver who crashed his Lancia into the sea at Monte Carlo, died following an accident while unofficially testing a Ferrari 750S prior to the 1,000km sports car race at Monza in 1955. Superstitious, he was for once without his light blue crash helmet.
