Memories of Bev Bond

I was sad to read the Bev Bond obituary in last month’s issue, but it brought back memories of his career in karting during the Sixties – something that provided the impetus for his subsequent success in 1000cc F3. Bev was a top-notch driver in the Class IV gearbox category and moved up to F3 at a similar time to a number of others, like Chris Lambert, Roger Keele, Barrie Maskell and Tony Dean,...

Lunch with... Derek Bell

He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams

With over 700 races and 250 rallies behind him, Williams continues to entertain on and off track No British race report is complete without a shot of a car ludicrously crossed up with Barrie Williams beaming through the window. Ruddyfaced, always chuckling, he seems to be everywhere at once in this, his 40th competition year. After leaving Hereford Cathedral School, he began rushing up Prescott...

A tough man who gained hearts and respect over a long career Former Ferrari and Williams grand prix driver Gianclaudio ‘Clay’ Regazzoni died in a road accident near Parma, Italy, shortly before Christmas.  A tough and uncompromising competitor, Regazzoni won five grands prix during an F1 career lasting from 1970 to 1980, most memorably victories for Ferrari at Monza in 1970 and 1975.

In the hot seat - Barrie Williams

He won in a car Jan Lammers thought too slow and could have been a rally star if he hadn't bid for the Land Speed Record. Just don't mention Roberto Moreno's grundies You were a winner in F3. Did you ever have any Fl aspirations? John Keen, Wolverhampton I suppose so, at least directly after winning in F3, but then my teammate Chris Lambert was killed at Zandvoort. That really affected me: I...

Thrill of the chaseEmerson Fittipaldi felt the heat ahead of the 1973 Argentine GP, but knew the race could be won Passage of time is an extraordinary thing. Everyone over 40 will be very familiar with how much it then accelerates. But Emerson Fittipaldi began the defence of his 1972 World Championship in the John Player Special Lotus 72 forty years ago, and his success in the 1973 Argentine...

Lunch with... Barrie Williams

But Simon Taylor finds Barrie can tell a story about almost every one Photography: James Mitchell Forty years ago a struggling young F3 driver came to kip on the floor of the dingy North London flat I shared with journalist Andrew Marriott and fellow F3 racer Chris Lambert. Whenever Barrie Williams came...

" I was never thinking about the World Championship. I was just racing day by day. I enjoyed life. That was the maximum for me."

Clay Regazzoni lived life to the full and still does. Adam Cooper talks to one of Ferraris favourite sons about life in the F1 firmament and the accident that ended his career Everything changed for Clay Regazzoni on March 30 1980.

Derek Bell – Enzo: his part in my downfall

There are few might-have-beens in this man’s distinguished career. But riding the Prancing Horse, then slipping off into sports cars might have been a mistake. Not a huge one – the lure of the red cars was irresistible, but a catch that somehow slipped through his fingers. Hindsight, though, brings clarity of vision… This is the man who started as a marshal at Goodwood, won his first ever race in...

Regga's opera

Sometimes theatrical, sometimes stubborn, sometimes brilliant Clay Regazzoni lived his Formula One dream for a decade. Then it became a nightmare Alan Henry profiles one of racing's bravest. Consider the following. "I have "to say that what I saw that day at Monza was unethical, unsporting and dangerous. It was the start of a breakdown of discipline among the grand prix drivers and the beginning...
