Brands Hatch vs Silverstone - where should the Grand Prix go?

The battle for Britain's round of the Formula One World Championship intensifies by the week. Marcus Simmons steps back from the hype to find out which track stakes a better claim. "The only thing that would make Brands Hatch compatible with the Grand Prix cars of today would be to put the coordinates for NATO aircraft right in the centre of it, bomb it and start all over again." Derek Warwick is...

Reflections on Brands Hatch

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Brands Hatch on July 11th, but it was more in keeping with a Bank Holiday meeting than a serious Grande Epreuve, and as for being the Grand Prix of Europe, it seemed even less likely. It appears I was not alone in holding these views, for a number of people have since said that during the Grand Prix they had to keep pinching themselves and...

Eyre gives new Brands Hatch layout a good airing

HSCC: Brands Hatch Superprix A brace of well-supported Orwell International Supersports races were the highlight of the 14th running of HSCC Historic Superprix at Brands Hatch.

Richard Eyre won both Supersports races in his mighty 900bhp McLaren M8F and also...

The Heat they wouldn't Hire

Russell Brookes was a talent ripe for the top level of international rallying, so why was he overlooked? He talks to John Davenport Not too many British rally drivers can claim that their name qualifies under the definition of 'household', but Russell Brookes is certainly one of them. But although he was celebrated in his home country, his international career never took off as it should have...

The last of the open two-seaters?

We drive the new Jensen-Healey What is the fate of the open two-seater sports car ? British Leyland, purveyors of such machines to countless Sprite, Spitfire and MG-B owners, seem little interested in introducing any new models, the latest American regulations regarding roll-over strength, which will come into effect well before the end of the decade, give little hope, while GT manufacturers,...

Didier's strong quartet

If you wish to observe clearly the dissimilarity between two things which are quite different, the best way is to place them side by side so that their differences become more pronounced. Show a peach to an Eskimo and then show him an apple and he may think they are the same fruit, but show them to him together and he will realise that they are not. The contrasting inherent characters of rallies...
