Obituary – Andrea de Cesaris

Sadly, the history books will relate only that Andrea de Cesaris took part in 208 Grands Prix without a single victory – an unenviable record that stands to this day. What the history books will not relate is that the racer from Rome was a wonderfully typical Italian racing driver: passionate, charming, mercurial and occasionally wild. He was a tough competitor, in love with his sport, and a...

Letter of the month Reasons to be cheerful... Whether it’s Nigel’s reporting, Andrew’s perfect reviews or Mark Hughes’s deep insight, there is much to choose from in Motor Sport. But always near the top was Letters; the experiences, reminiscences and general enthusiasm of racers and fans make our sport stand apart. It is sad, then, that Letters has become littered with pessimism. I just cannot...

Formula 1 season preview podcast Rob Widdows: Just returning to last month’s magazine and the Formula 1 Revolution. Do we honestly think that any of the ideas that we’ve put forward are likely to happen? Mark Hughes: Yes Comrade… I think it’s more to put it out there and it seems to have struck a chord with a lot of followers of the sport. There’s definitely been a bit of a reaction since the...

Tinker, tailor, soldier, fly

It’s 6.30am and I’ve just woken up face down on the hot Tarmac in the pitlane of the Potrero de los Funes circuit in San Luis, Argentina. I can hear trucks moving and so scramble from my one-man tent into the blazing sunshine. Squinting towards the pitwall I see the form of Race2Recovery team founder Tony Harris. “I thought you’d f***** off already!” he grins.Welcome to the Dakar Rally bivouac...

Gordon Murray on F1 changes and what he’d do if he was in charge. “I don’t really like the direction F1 is taking at the moment; I think it’s quite false in some areas. I can understand completely the desire to create overtaking, but there were much more simple ways that had a technical background and not an artificial one. I do see the reasoning, though. “In terms of the current direction and...

The Aston Martin DB3S

The Aston Martin DB3S Sportscar, by Chris Nixon. Palawan Press, £375. Perhaps Palawan is pioneering the "homologation special" of car books. Its fabulously expensive limited editions seem to be snapped up more eagerly than the £30 products of conventional publishers, just as Ferrari could have charged whatever it wanted for an F40, or Porsche for a 959, when saloons were hard to shift. We were...

Porsche Prices

Sir, I feel that the letter from Andrew 'Whyte of Jaguar Cars (Motor Sport, April) in which he states that the Porsche 911S is £2,000 more expensive in Britain than in Germany, cannot be accepted without comment by this company. The purpose of his letter was to correct the errors he infers were made by Mr. Carroll in your January edition, and in doing so he has made some rather vital errors...

Clubs news

Ulster A.C. The July issue of the Monthly Review contains a good report of the County Down Trophy Race from various aspects together with several very excellent photographs. Those who were at the race and have not seen a copy should write for one—we can find no price on the cover, but no doubt club funds are open to fortification! The story of the teddy-bear that never looked other than straight...
