Lunch with... Kenny Bräck

He reached Formula 3, stepped back to Renault Clios and then went on to conquer Indianapolis... via an argument or two with Tom Walkinshaw Writer: Simon Taylor, Photographer: James Mitchell Every sportsman tends to be remembered, above all, for one particular achievement: one win, one record, one defining moment in his career. Kenny Bräck feels that most people primarily recall his victory in the...

Sydney's opera horse Problems with a 4wd Ferguson trigger memories of bygone engineering complexity Late on the Saturday night at Goodwood’s ‘72’ meeting, I was walking through the paddock when I happened upon a perplexed little group huddled over the fabulous four-wheel-drive Ferguson P99. Owner/driver Stuart Rolt explained that its Climax engine had subsided into silence on his first practice...

On the road with... Simon Arron

All the wolds a stage... Cadwell Park, June 22: the perfect alternative to a cancelled ’Ring trip When I awoke this morning, the first thing I heard was a cuckoo…” The Historic Sports Car Club’s CEO Grahame White seemed rather pleased about his unexpected alarm call, one that perfectly summarised the appeal of Cadwell Park and its surrounding Wolds. My original weekend plan had been to attend the...

A season of contrasts Brands Hatch, May 25 & June 8: blast from the past plus a visit from the brash-and-bash brigade There’s an argument that Britain has too much motor sport, but I’d counter that the year simply needs a few more weekends. I’d never previously attended the Masters Historic meeting on the full version of Brands Hatch, not least because the Monaco Grand Prix had occupied my...

All mod pros and cons

Rose-tinted spectacles are a wonderful invention, but they don’t always focus accurately. Modern life, then, is not necessarily rubbish… Writer Andrew Frankel Although it probably didn’t seem so at the time, as the grid assembled in Melbourne for the first Grand Prix of the new millennium, the world of Formula 1 was a somewhat simple place to be, at least relative to where it is today. The cars...

Figures of 8

After eight seasons, 2.4-litre V8 F1 ended as it began, with a Renault-engined car taking the title. Renault Sport linchpins Rob White and Rémi Taffin discuss the passing of an eraWriter Simon Arron The sonic cocktail is almost 37 years old, but remains distinct. When first I attended a Grand Prix, at Silverstone in 1977, a significant proportion of the field could be identified by ear alone....

Strengthening the squad

Having read your online comments about the difficulties in publishing specialist magazines at this time (and some of the negative comments on the website), I’d like to offer my congratulations on the recruitment of Mark Hughes. It makes a very strong line-up for the magazine and justifies my subscription for another year. Your website proved to be a godsend in 2013. For a while I had my leg in...

Amon tests new Hulme Can-Am

If you attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2006, you may well have spotted a striking machine called the Hulme F1 in the supercar paddock. Then it was just a concept car and Goodwood an exercise for its Scots-born but naturalised Kiwi creator Jock Freemantle to see if there might be sufficient demand to put it into production. It seems there was because in January a clip appeared on...

Sauber waits on grid slot, as Mercedes eyes Brawn buy-in

Four years after buying the team BMW has sold Sauber to Qadbak Investments, a Swiss-based foundation with Qatari connections which was recently involved in the purchase of Notts County Football Club. Having lost a guaranteed place on the grid when BMW declined to sign the Concorde Agreement the team has been listed by the FIA as the 14th entry for 2010, and thus has reserve status, pending the...

REFLECTIONS - Amid the excitement, DRS is a gimmick too far - It's time the Formula 1 got rid of the 'one move' rule - A joke or several courtesy of Frank Gardner You could hardly fault the Chinese Grand P • in terms of action — and this on a track rdly renowned for it. At different points five drivers led the race, and all afternoon there was more overtaking than any longtime Formula 1 observer...
