Lunch With... Paul Tracy

This ever-determined, hard-charging Indycar driver didn’t always mind his Ps and Qs but invariably gave his all in the cockpit Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer Michael McNamara These days your average professional racing driver tends to be slight and slender. He is unfailingly polite to team personnel, to sponsors and to rivals, and speaks to the media in unexceptional sound-bites while a PR...

The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

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...

Right man for the job The feeling in the media centre after this year’s 98th Indianapolis 500 was that the right driver and team won the race. Ryan Hunter-Reay dominated the second half of this year’s fiercely competitive 500 aboard one of five Honda-powered Andretti Autosport entries. By winning a heated duel with Helio Castroneves and team-mate Marco Andretti, the 2012 IndyCar champion cast...

Returning to Indy, Monaco’s faded glamour, Rosberg’s guile Sometimes,” wrote Henry Manney in Road and Track half a century ago, “I wish I was in Indianapolis. But not often.” Time was when the Indianapolis 500 was always run – whatever the day of the week – on May 30, Memorial Day, and a public holiday in the USA. And time was, too, when virtually the whole of the month of May, which included two...

Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey!By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

In brief

* The Chevron B8 that John Lepp drove in 1969 has returned to racing in the hands of Ed Lovett. The son of former touring car and Chevron racer Peter acquired the car from the museum at Stavelot in Belgium, and it is thought to have gone un-raced for at least 15 years. The B8, recently restored by Simon Hadfield, will run in Guards Trophy and World Sportscar Masters races. * The three Morgan SLRs...

Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Reliving past glories This is my first column for Motor Sport, and I’ll be back in this space every month in the coming year, which is great because I’ve been reading the magazine for as long as I can remember. I’ll be writing about what’s happening here in the United States as well as looking back on some of the highlights – and possibly low points – of my career. Right now I’m involved in what...

"I'm a car guy"

Racing driver, team owner, car collector, historic series promoter… Zak Brown loves his motor sport. But it’s as a sponsor gatherer for Formula 1 where his real influence lies. We track him down after his dream test day, and ask the big question: is this man the next Bernie? Zak Brown just loves talking about racing cars. But not as much as he loves buying and driving them. He’s just returned...
