Germany’s Championship

Turbocharging for (nearly) all Ranging over Germany and Belgium, the deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft is an 11-round series that caters for some superbly engineered cars of extraordinary value.

European Touring Car Championship

The season so far: seven wins to Jaguar, two to BMW, Toyota, Rover and Volvo getting competitive. . . Ever since the creation of Group A racing, the once-moribund ETC series (formerly Group 2, unattractive to manufacturers) has begun to come to life.

The SPA 1000 kilometres

Ickx wins for Matra Spa-Francorchamps The 1,000-kilometre race over 71 laps of the fabulous Spa circuit took place only 10 days after the Monza event, and in consequence suffered from the absence of the Alfa Romeo team who could not prepare their cars in time. Two Matra 670 driven by Pescarolo/Larrousse and lekx/ Jarier, faced a single Gulf-Cosworth V8 driven by Bell/Hailwood, though the Gulf...

BMW win, Jaguar star

BMW win, Jaguar star Silverstone, September 9th THE 48th RAC Tourist Trophy was dominated by two things, the presence of the works Jaguars and the weather. The Jaguars, always a big box office draw at home, were doubtless responsible for attracting a good proportion of a crowd of over 15,000 who came not only to see them win, but also to see Tom \Valkinshaw clinch the ETC Drivers' Championship....

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...
