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...

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Arnoux's first victory  Sao Paulo, January 27th Few of those who were critical of the decision to hold this year's Brazilian Grand Prix there would deny that Sao Paulo's superb 4.946 mile Interlagos circuit is one of the very best in the world. It winds its way through some fairly mundane surroundings in the Sao Paulo suburbs, but it is a most exacting facility which challenges driving skill...

The Formula One Scene

The last two years have seen some semblance of respectability return to Formula One racing, so that one could justifiably call it Grand Prix racing once more. The petty bickering that went on amongst the small-time entrepreneurs who posed as businessmen has largely disappeared for the simple fact that some of the "performers" have gone and their places have been taken by industrial concerns of...

Walker (E.R.A.) Wins £75 Prize. Poore's 3.8-litre Alfa-Romeo Makes F.T.D. on Extra Run.

The Lotus 49 is significant for me because it was the last F1 car...

Legends

Late in the afternoon of November 22 1963, I was stopped by a policeman and reprimanded for riding my bike at dusk without lights. I carried on to school, chastened, where I found my housemaster looking extremely preoccupied. My first thought was that the copper had reported me but it was rather more significant than that. "Two hours ago," he said, "President Kennedy was assassinated." Thus, that...

NASCAR feels the crunch

The world began to change in NASCAR at the end of last season. More than 1000 jobs were lost as belts were tightened and five teams either merged or closed down. Petty Enterprises, NASCAR’s longest-standing team, was bought by Gillett Evernham and renamed Richard Petty Motorsports. Chip Ganassi and Felix Sabates merged their NASCAR team with Dale Earnhardt Inc, reducing two three-car teams into a...

Triple Treat

Matra's plan was to win both Formula One titles plus Le Mans in just ten years. In the event, it did all that and more. Gordon Cruickshank reports. It's hard to think of a recent equivalent to the Matra racing regime. In one glorious decade, from 1965 to 1974, Matra fielded victorious Grand Prix cars and Le Mans winners at the same time as building F2 and F3 cars and selling quirky roadcars ......
