Timing is everything

The symbiosis between watchmaking and motor racing is complete. In both worlds, time and accuracy are all that count. It's no wonder that some of the most familiar commercial partnerships in the sport, between teams and individual drivers, have been forged between the timepiece elite and their track counterparts. Here, in this special supplement, we acknowledge that bond and investigate how — and...

Taking Red Bull by the horns

It is 30 years since Casio entered motor racing - and the firm now finds itself at the sport's cutting edge Many of Motor Sport's readers will remember the 1983 European Formula 2 title fight between Mike Thackwell and Jonathan Palmer.

Formula 2 review: Palmer closes on Gabbiani

After the first five rounds of this year's European Championship for Formula Two, it looked as if one man was going to walk away with the title. Beppe Gabbiani won at Silverstone, Thruxton, Nurburgring and Vallelunga and although he retired at Hockenheim, he was clearly the class of the field. "No one who has won four out of the first five races, has ever lost the championship" quoth the sages,...

Limited revolution

When Formula Two was fading, Bernie Ecclestone came up with an alternative. -- A new home for a castrated DFV. By Damien Smith Michel Ferté was on a mission. This was going to be a tight finish. The Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit is a daunting challenge at the best of times, but in this weather it was lethal.

Readers' Letters

Stacey’s sock tactics Sir, Interviewed by Simon Taylor in July, Peter Warr mentioned Alan Stacey who had lost part of his right leg in a motorcycle accident. One of my National Service pals, Dave Pearce, worked with Alan at de Havilland and recalled one of his favourite stunts. Before using an electric pistol drill near anyone unaware of the artificial limb he would say, “I’ll just test this one...

F3000 A Promising Start

The idea of Formula 3000 as a replacement for F2 has been around for couple of years, the impetus coming partly as F2 shrivelled and partly due to the final decline of the Cosworth DFV engine. The main reason why F2 failed was escalating costs and the reluctance of sponsors to invest ever-increasing amounts into a category which attracted relatively small crowds and, in Britain at least, almost...

Never Mind The Quantity

The Le Mans 24 Hours was, after all, a success if measured as a sporting event, though a financial failure for the Automobile Club de l'Ouest. Next year's race will not be submitted to FISA for the Sportscar World Championship, and since Jean-Marie Balestre (president of the FIA and of the French Federation) has done a complete backflip and given the ACO his support, it seems unlikely that FISA...
