Kamm tail: The All-American Chrysler-engined C4R with Briggs Cunningham driving finished fourth at Le Mans. One of the team cars was a coupe that featured a cut-off tail section under study by an aerodynamicist named Professor Wunibald Kamm, whose name graces the innovation.
British Motor Corporation: BMC was formed in 1952 out of the Nuffield Group and the Austin Motor Company and placed under the direction of Sir Leonard Lord.
Monaco: The Monaco Grand Prix was run for full-fendered sports cars instead of Grand Prix machines. Ferrari took the top five spots.
Allard J2X: The formidable Allard J2X with a Cadillac V8 engine appeared and was one of the cars to beat in American sports car racing.
12 Hours of Sebring: Alec Ulmann had already created a sports-car race in central Florida around the taxiways and runways of an airport. In 1952, he secured an international date from the FIA to hold a 12-hour endurance race at the Sebring track. That 12-hour race continues to this day as America's premier long-distance sports-car endurance test. With a highest placing of sixth overall, an MG team of three TDs took the team prize at that first Sebring 12-hour race.
National Motor Museum: Lord Montagu of Beaulieu in England opened his collection of six veteran cars to the public in 1952. He did this largely to honor the memory of his father, John Scott Montagu, who was one of motoring's pioneers. Since that time the museum has increased in popularity and today houses many hundreds of cars that are important to British motoring history. The website address is www.beaulieu.co.uk
Disc brakes: The C-Type Jaguar began experimenting with disc brakes for racing.
