Spanish Grand Prix

Gilles Villeneuve's Ferrari 126CK heads the queue of cars battling for the lead of the Spanish Grand Prix at Jarama. He is persued by Jacques Laffite's Talbot-Matra JS17, John Watson's McLaren MP4, Carlos Reutemann's Williams FW07C and Elio de Angelis's Lotus 87. Below, Britain's Nigel Mansell recovered well from a slow start to bring his Lotus 87 home sixth. *   *   * John Watson drove his best...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

Notes on the cars and teams at Imola

Now that the Grand Prix season has begun in Europe and teams can work from their home bases we should see some interesting strides forwards in the mechanical scene in the paddock. For the first three races everyone was "on tour" leading a gypsy-like existence which made it impossible to do much in the way of serious development. The craze of the moment to develop ways of cheating the "no-skirt"...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

Alfa Interlude

A reflection on 20 years endeavour after a day with a T33/3 V8 sports racer On October 28th, 1951 Juan-Manuel Fangio drove his 1 ½ -litre supercharged eight-cylinder Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 to victory in the Spanish Grand Prix on Barcelona’s now-defunct Pedralbes circuit, making the final triumph for the classic Alfetta design which had served the Italian team so successfully since the end of the...

A Model Lancia Lambda

Some time ago I referred to the beautifully made, finished, and detailed TOGI of Italy's model - it is to 1:23 scale and too large to be termed a miniature - of the 1750 Zagato Alfa Romeo. Now another of these fine models is available, to the same scale, and the equal of the splendid Alfa model in every way. It is of a 7th-Series Lancia Lambda torpedo, which you can have either with hood up or...

New Cars - Alfa Romeo 33 1.5 ie

The Alfa 33 is now available to those with tighter purse strings because Alfa Romeo have added to their 1.7 16 valve and 1.7 ie range with a 1.5 fuel injected version of their car which will sell for a modest £9895. Despite being 222 cc and eight valves short of the 140 bhp top of the line model, the 1.5 ie remains relatively punchy with 98 bhp at 6000 rpm and 95 lb/ft of torque at 4500 rpm....

Jantke: Spreading the Porsche Gospel

The recent Brands Hatch venue for a 6-hour round of the World Championship for Makes (Group 5) brought the Martini-sponsored factory Porsche personnel to Kent. While they were here, establishing beyond any possible doubt their second successive title in this fledgling series, we took the opportunity of talking to the man responsible for their sporting policies. Formerly the editor of a West...

51st Targa Florio

Porsche win again Cefalu, May 14th. That Porsche won the annual dice round the Sicilian mountains was no surprise for they invaded the island in force, determined not only to win the 2-litre Prototype class but also the overall classification. For this purpose they had three new cars with the 910 type of space frame chassis and fibreglass bodywork, fitted with 2.2-litre versions of the...

Scrap-book continued

Some more Memories prompted by the study of an enthusiast's book of Press cuttings. The first instalment appeared last month A picture of three works Austins reminds us that the later s.v. cars had "isolated" radiators, no inter-wheel fairings and stumpier tails than the record-breaking job driven by Leon Cushman. Here is the "Nurburg" Frazer-Nash with Powerplus supercharger – Reg. No. MV 2303 –...
