1976 British Grand Prix - Well up to standard

  If there is one thing that you must admire the British for, it is their consistency. Once they get hold of a good idea they do not let go of it easily, though some people think they tend to flog a good idea to death. Chaos would reign at the 1976 British Grand Prix following a first lap crash that took out several big name drivers including home favourite, James Hunt. Photo: Motorsport Images...

Book Reviews

"Why Finish Last?", by Andrew Cowen. 129 pp. 8 in. x 5 in (Queen Anne Press Ltd., 49, Poland Street, London, W.1. 21s.) Nick Britten got his account of preparing for and driving in the London-Sydney Marathon off to a quick start.

Road Test and Owner's Impressions

The Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce A classic sports car of the past, available in the present. Those who prefer the claustrophobic glasshouses of saloon cars will possibly dismiss my love for open-air motoring as masochistic eccentricity. Yet last year's long, hot summer probably encouraged many other converts to the cooling, invigorating benefits of wind-in-the-hair fresh air, a sensation which...

The Yellow Rose

30 years on Trevor Taylor reflects contentedly on his life in Jim Clark's shadow "Even on the road, I don't drive quickly, me. I live in Yorkshire and used to pop down to Ledbury to see John Thornburn. John could do it in an hour and half; I did it in two and a half hours. I'd get up early in the morning to miss the traffic and the maximum I do is 60, 65mph. I don't know why! But I used to be a...

Never say never....

No special FX

The worst car I ever drove In the days before Patrick Head, Frank Williams ran a very different team from the standard - Setter we know now, as Henri Pescarolo found out to his cost in 1972. Adam Cooper reports This year Henri Pescarolo did not take part in the Le Mans 24 Hours for the first time since 1969, when injuries sustained in a testing crash kept him away.

Sleep of faith

Porsche's 917 is one of the greatest cars ever. But that's no reason, says Gary Watkins, to build a new one and race it at Le Mans a decade after the original had been pensioned off Imagine coming up with the bright idea of building a replica of Mazda's 1991 Le Mans winner for the 24 Hours — this year. Could you imagine the reaction if you rang Japan asking for the original chassis drawings and a...
