Lunch With... Paul Tracy

This ever-determined, hard-charging Indycar driver didn’t always mind his Ps and Qs but invariably gave his all in the cockpit Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer Michael McNamara These days your average professional racing driver tends to be slight and slender. He is unfailingly polite to team personnel, to sponsors and to rivals, and speaks to the media in unexceptional sound-bites while a PR...

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...

This month on the Motor Sport website

Nigel's Q&A Nigel Roebuck has stirred things up on the website this month in his Q&A column after Pat Kenny asked whether it would leave a bad taste if Alonso were to win the 2010 F1 title following the team orders drama at Hockenheim. “I grow rather weary of the anti-Alonso sentiment which seems rife in this country,” wrote Nigel. “What I find staggering is that for countless years...

No Lunch With... Richard Petty

A quiet superman who doesn’t brag about his 200 NASCAR wins, his seven championships or his charity work for disabled childrenWriter Simon Taylor | Photographer Jessica Milligan The great perk of this job is the privilege of getting to know, often quite well, so many talented, single-minded people who have carved out great careers in the cockpit, at the drawing board or in the pits. In doing so...

Marcus Pye's Diary

Opposites attract our columnist this month, from a Can-Am monster to a dainty, and obscure, Rhodesian GP winner Goodwood: Incongruous it most definitely looked against the elegant backdrop of Goodwood House, but that is precisely why the 1982 March Can-Am dinosaur was the car of last month's press day for me — and editor Simmons! It's not that I don't appreciate the intricate engineering of a...

The VW 1300

Increased Performance Greatly Enhances Top-Quality Small Car The Volkswagen is an enigma. It has survived thirty years without change in its basic design or styling, in its fatuous Beetle form. Yet it continues to sell, and sell, and sell. And not only sell, but give service and satisfaction to countless customers throughout the civilised, and not so civilised, World. It is a fact that to date...

Three blokes and one chap

A small team but a lot of manpower went into creating Peter Bryant’s unique titanium Can-Am car. If only the rewards had been more forthcoming… In racing, new ideas are high-risk. Get it right and you’re a visionary. Get it wrong and you lose, publicly. McLaren MP4/1 – first carbon-fibre chassis, changed the world. Ti22 – first titanium chassis, evaporated without trace. But it so nearly...

Still hectic, after all these years

Late in 1976 DSJ and I were swept around the Lotus Cars facility at Hethel in Norfolk. A succession of interviews and a memorable first drive in a then new Esprit made it a day that could justifiably be headlined Hectic Hethel. Some 16 years later I was back at company HQ to write a belated Part II of that feature. There was no DSJ, no Colin Chapman (its now 10 years since the founder passed away...

Mann of the decade

His career was confined to the 1960s but what an era it was, with Alan Mann acting as a lynchpin in Ford’s competition drive By Richard Heseltine It holds true in broad outline that the closer you get to the truth, the more the legend evaporates. Racer-turned-entrant Alan Mann has just skewered an eminent figure of ’60s motor sport, outlining how he was caught with his fingers in the corporate...
