Red, white and blue

There were two red, white and blue cars in the World Sports-Prototype Championship paddock at Dijon-Prenois in May, both prepared in high-tech laboratories, but similarities seemed to end there. The Nissan R89C, designed and built by Eric Broadley, was obviously a state-of-the-art Group C car powered by Nissan, one of the world's leading motor companies, and would soon be an outright winner. What...

Readers' Letters

Sorry for Silverstone Sir, So Bernie has finally carried out his threat and Silverstone is no longer ‘the home of British motor sport’. What a sad and dirty tale of bullying and big business this has been. For my part I am very disappointed. Living as I do within a stone’s throw of the track I have seen both what the Grand Prix has done for the region over the years, and also the huge strides...

Le Mans 24hrs: preview

Equipes et pilotes Only a provisional list of Le Mans entries, without any confirmed drivers, was available at the time of going to press, and some of the race numbers had yet to be allocated. Traditionally this is a time for wishful thinking for some teams (though these dreams have to be backed up by a hefty non-returnable entry fee), but Mike Cotton and Ian Briggs speculate as to which machines...

The Fortune Seekers

THIRTY years after Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby won the 24Hours of Le Mans for Aston Martin, the marque returned to France with a new challenger racing only for the second time. It was, of course, too soon to hope for a result but eleventh place overall was distinctly encouraging, and the team hopes to return to the Sarthe in June with a real chance of pulling off the surprise victory of the...

Aston Martin AMR-1

VICTOR Gauntlett looked the happiest man in the world at Brands Hatch on July 23, after seeing David Leslie and Brian Redman drive the Aston Martin AMR-1 to fourth place overall in only the car's third World Sports Prototype Championship race. Initially the Max Boxstrom-designed Group C car had not created a good impression on its first outing at Dijon in May, but the subsequent 11th place at Le...

New cars -- Porsche 962

Schuppan's Road Porsche 962C An anti-hero is Vern Schuppan. Working from a small factory unit in High Wycombe, west of London, the quiet, totally unassuming Australian has worked in some secrecy to beat Tom Walkinshaw to the draw. This July the first of 50 roadgoing Porsche 962CRs will roll out of the door, bound for Japan with a 195 million Yen price tag on the windscreen. A press release from...

Aston Martin tests Group C Design

Aston Martin's Group C car had its first test session at Silverstone in early December, driven by David Leslie, Brian Redman and its builder Ray Mallock. Fitted with a 6-litre four-valve V8 developed by Reeves Callaway in Connecticut, the carbon-fibre and Kevlar monocoque features an unusually mounted radiator, over the Aston-built transmission where it is fed by two horizontal intake ducts...

In brief

The BRDC has launched a new Superstars scheme to further the careers of young British drivers. The 14 chosen drivers, who were introduced to the media by Damon Hill and former BTCC champion Tim Harvey in March, include 2007 Formula Renault champion Duncan Tappy, Porsche champion James Sutton and British F3 driver Max Chilton.  The new Dome S102 Le Mans challenger has hit the track. The Judd-...

Ecosse efficient racer

Ecurie Ecosse's proud Le Mans tradition - it won there in 1956 and '57 - meant that the team's mid-1980s reincarnation was geared solely around La Sarthe. That it failed to win there, yet wound up with a world title, is one of racing's happier twists of fate. The first Ecosse, C284, was based around Dorset Racing's De Cadenet Lola. Low fuel pressure halted it at Le Mans in 1984, and it was...
