An Interview with Henri Toivonen

An Interview with Henri Toivonen "METEORIC" is the best way to describe Henri Toivonen's rally career. The 26-year-old Finn only started rallying seriously four years ago, and yet in that short space ol time has won one of the sport's premier events, the RAC Rally, and has finished runner-up on both the Portuguese and Sanremo World Championship qualifiers. Yet Henri, son of 1966 Monte Carlo...

Renault 5 Finale

Thirty-one cars and 250 personnel were shipped out to Estoril in Portugal by sponsor Autotrans for the final round of the Renault Elf Turbo UK Cup. Winning at 77.38 mph, David Gibson netted £1370 from the various awards donated by Philips, Elf, Renault UK, Renault Portugal, Renault Loan, Michelin and Straw — this is lucrative racing! As usual the 12-lap race was eventful. Oldacre and O'Dell...

Ruling favours Team Lotus

Ruling favours Team Lotus Team Lotus came out on top when Justice Peter Smith issued his judgement on the fight for the use of the Lotus name in Grand Prix racing. While Group Lotus won on several lesser counts in the complex High Court case, Tony Fernandes took the big prize — the right to retain the Team Lotus name. Group Lotus can still use 'Lotus' in relation to its sponsorship of the Renault...

Outlook Promising

In general, the outlook for the British motor industry and its specialised component parts is set fair for a prosperous future. We reported last month on the party at which the government displayed its appreciation of the importance and growth of the industries directly associated with motor racing.

1974 British Grand Prix - Scheckter finishes first

  Brands Hatch, July 20th: Britain's World Championship qualifying round arrived at Brands Hatch for its 1974 edition, the bumpy and undulating Kent circuit being just about as far removed from Silverstone's wide open spaces as it is possible to get.   The one common factor which this year's race shared with the 1973 Grand Prix was major sponsorship from the John Player tobacco conglomerate, and...

Kent buy me love

I thought I'd take the time to say what a good time I had watching the DTM at Brands Hatch in May, a thoroughly fantastic series in a wonderful setting. The price was a fraction of what I'd expected to pay to see a top-class competitive series, something Bernie and the Fl crowd should heed. The pit walk on race day was brilliant — no one took umbrage with me leaning under barriers to take photos...
