Classic Car Comment  Not that long ago we were warned: ever expanding online technology would spell the end for books and magazines. Well, not true, the printed word on paper will never be replaced, supplemented yes, but never replaced. You read it here first.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  The first Monte-Carlo Rally was held in January 1911 when, of the grand total of 23 cars that started, 16 reached the finish, including Henri Rougier who was declared winner. Von Esmarch who arrived first thought he should have won, refused his sixth place prize, and was excluded for poor sportsmanship.
