Better from America

There have been doubts about whether America would embrace Austin's Grand Prix - but it sure did... By Adam Sweeting Will Ferrell's NASCAR movie Talledega Nights featured Sacha Baron Cohen as gay French F1 driver Jean Girard, who was fond of listening to opera, drinking espresso and reading Albert Camus as he lounged pretentiously at the wheel. A farcical caricature obviously, but might the...

Historic racing on a budget

How you can & why you should Club motor-racing is the future of automotive enjoyment and you need look no further than the nearest great road to have been blighted with speed cameras to know it. And while there's joy to be killed, revenue to be raised and a nanny state to be built it will only get worse. Besides, there has been, for some time now, a nagging doubt in the office that we were,...

The N.S.U. fills the bill

Sir, Superficially your last editorial (Buy British) makes very good sense, but when put to the test (in my case at least) the British motor industry is sadly lacking. Three and a half years and 42,000 miles ago, I took delivery of a new Mini and immediately suffered an incredible number of faults due to poor manufacture. Thereafter the car was great fun when it was going, but, oh the hours I've...

Letters from Readers

Look Mazda, no hands Sir, It was excellent to see your article about Mazda's 1991 Le Mans win. It brought a number of memories back for me, primarily because it was the first time I had marshalled at the event. I was there with a group of British marshals manning Post 35bis, which is situated just south of the Hunaudieres Restaurant on the outside of the circuit. This must have been one of the...

Matters of Moment

A new sports car—The Jensen-Healey We began the year with the suggestion that a sports-car renaissance might well be a feature of the nineteen-seventies, based on the assumptions that the motor car continues to be a status-symbol or, put less blatantly, a pleasurable possession, and that, in open two-seater form, it adds the benefit and enjoyment of fresh-air motoring, good handling and a sense...

Damien Smith's Off the line

Up for the Cup Normally one-make racing does little to raise my blood pressure. Having reported on two years of Formula 3000 for Autosport  at the start of this decade, I'm more than aware that it often lacks the spectacle and zest of the open formulae. But still I find myself tingling with expectation as I arrive at Brands Hatch for the 'inaugural round of the A1GP championship, the self-styled...

1972 British Grand Prix race report - Uninspiring

  Amidst three days of fun and games in the Brands Hatch Stadium the British Grand Prix took place over 76 laps of the full circuit, and thanks to John Player Ltd. and a very large crowd of paying customers, the whole affair was considered a great success by all except those who had to work and live in the grotty paddock, or try and operate from the mini-pits, and those drivers who crashed or got...

The worst car I ever drove - Formula flawed

Johnny Herbert – 1986 Quest SF86 Formula Ford 2000 While some of his Formula One seats have left a bit to be desired, Johnny Herbert tells Adam Cooper about his FF2000 nightmare Now the longest serving driver in Grand Prix racing, Johnny Herbert made his debut in Brazil in March 1989 — some three months before current Sauber team-mate Jean Alesi appeared on the scene. Winner of two Grands Prix...
