COMMENT   Three cracking events coming up this weekend. Rally-wise we have the fantastically popular Throckmorton Challenge near Pershore, Worcestershire on Saturday, while on track the Autumn Classic arrives at Castle Combe on Sunday. And talking of Autumn Classics, Prescott Speed Hill Climb is all set for its two-day family-orientated, American themed, fun meeting that always attracts record spectator numbers. Luckily Retro-Speed doesn't need to make any choices, we will be at all three.

RETRO-FACT  
After Juan Fangio broke his neck, Ferrari made the 1952 World Drivers Championship, which ran to the short-lived Formula 2 rules, their own. Ascari, Farina, Taruffi and Fischer swept the board, finishing the season in that order with Villorese 7th. Mike Hawthorn (Cooper-Bristol) was best non-Ferrari, he equalled Fischer for 4th place.
