The World Championship of MakesOsterreichring, June 29th With victories in both of what will probably prove to be the last two rounds of the series, Alfa Romeo have won this year's World Championship for Makes, taking the title for the first time in their history. For the small crowd that witnessed the Austrian event however, it won't be the Italian conquest that sticks in their minds, but the...

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Notes on the Cars in Austria

Making notes about the Ferrari ears at the Osterreichring was quite simple; there were no Ferrari cars. After the German Grand Prix the Commendatore withdrew his team, ostensibly for the rest of the 1976 season, for reasons dealt with elsewhere. The March team had to undertake one of their biggest rebuilding programmes ever, after the Nurburgring. The cars of Brambilla and Peterson were virtually...

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....

The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

Notes on the Cars at Monaco

THE McLAREN team had a new tweak on M23/9, which World Champion Fittipaldi used all during practice and in the race itself. This was a lever on the left of the cockpit coupled to the ends of the front suspension anti-roll bar by Bowden cables. Moving the lever backwards or forwards caused the roll bar arms to extend or contract, thus allowing the driver to alter the roll stiffness of the front...

Endurance racing survey

An uninspiring start IF YOU thought last year's World Championship for Makes was more than a shade uninspiring, you should have seen the first European round in this year's endurance racing series. The opening round of the championship had taken place amidst the bare expanses of the Daytona Speedway in early February, but it was the six hour race at Mugello, near Florence in Italy's Appenine...

The Spanish Grand Prix-Catastrophic

Barcelona, April 27th WE SHOULD have seen the writing on the wall when the transporters carrying the Formula One circus crossed the frontier into Spain with little or no trouble, unlike previous years when there had been long delays and muddles over paperwork. "Best trip we've ever had" said the UOP-Shadow crew. One man who did have a bit of bother was the driver of the Texaco "entertainment"...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

Another Ferrari domination Terlamen, Zolder, May 25th Two years ago the Belgian Grand Prix was held on the little Zolder circuit before it was really ready to accept the full onslaught of the Grand Prix "circus" and the result was a shambles, to say the least. Most of the teams and drivers stamped off saying they wouldn't come back, while one or two people said "You know, apart from the surface...

The Brands Hatch Six Hour Race

Victory for Lancia on a sad occasion  The second round of the World Championship for Makes run at Brands Hatch on March 16th may not have been the most exciting long distance race ever, but at least it provided an unexpected result. Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbos finished first, second and fourth, the first time a Group 5 car from the under 2-litre division has over won a World Championship...
