Planes, new terrains and automobiles

Getting a Formula 1 team to all the races on an ever-expanding calendar is an organisational feat like no other. We visited Williams to see how it’s done A Grand Prix racing team spends a lot of time in the sky. More than 300 hours, zig-zagging 150,000 miles around the globe, hauling over 30 tons of equipment and up to 100 people to 19 races in 18 different countries, from Australia to Abu Dhabi...

Continental Notes

THIS season Grand Prix races have been so full of interest and excitement that reports have tended to over-run the Editorial limits and in consequence Continental Notes has had to be omitted. It has been purely this limitation on space that has curtailed these notes, and not a limitation on activities, for the faithful Porsche, even after well over 150,000 miles, continues to be flogged around...

Argentine Grand Prix

Reflections in the dark

ALTHOUGH a Grand Prix may finish at 3 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon we seldom leave the circuit much before 8 p.m. for somehow there is always someone to talk to, something to see, details to cross-check, facts to verify and so on. Long Beach was no exception and with so many cars crashed into walls during the race it was worthwhile hanging about at the paddock entrance to survey the wrecks as they...

Miscellany

The VSCC of America has added selected cars made before 1960 as eligible for its events, plus some later ones if specially approved, as well as pre-war cars.

Why innovation matters in F1 - and always should

Advanced technologies developed in Formula 1 have long benefited the wider world – no matter how restrictive the rules are Not all sports need to have spectator appeal.
