Fuels paradise

The opening rounds of this year's European F3000 Championship have contained several surprises, all but one of them welcome. The exception was the late decision -18 days before the race – to switch the third round of the series from Jerez to Barcelona, long after teams and other associates of the formula had committed money to non-returnable flight and hotel deposits, not to mention extensive...

Taking the strain

Until lap 16 of the fifth round of the European F3000 Championship, the German GP support race at Hockenheim, David Coulthard appeared to be heading for an eight-point championship lead.

Lola's Nick Langley was looking forward to going to Spa. The company's Formula 3000 project manager has had a rum year in Europe, where not one T93/50 chassis has been sold, and he went to Belgium hoping to drum up business for 1994.
