The man who played with fire

Hockenheim brought the spectre of fire back to Grand Prix racing. In his first interview for almost two decades, former BRM chief Louis Stanley, who pioneered means of eliminating such risk, recalls the days when safety was a dirty word In his heyday on the Grand Prix circuits Louis T Stanley cut an imposing figure. Tall and corpulent, ruddy of face and silver of hair, his blue blazer and old...

McLaren: Life after Bruce

When the inspirational leader who drove the team died, McLaren could have spun into the ground. Instead it regrouped and vindicated his vision and his faith Words: Paul Fearnley. Photography: Alex P There was a lot to think about. But Bruce Leslie McLaren — boss/designer/engineer/tester/racer — preferred it that way. Three years of his New Zealand childhood had been spent in plaster, in traction...

Three blokes and one chap

A small team but a lot of manpower went into creating Peter Bryant’s unique titanium Can-Am car. If only the rewards had been more forthcoming… In racing, new ideas are high-risk. Get it right and you’re a visionary. Get it wrong and you lose, publicly. McLaren MP4/1 – first carbon-fibre chassis, changed the world. Ti22 – first titanium chassis, evaporated without trace. But it so nearly...

The wheel of fortune

Heir to a multi-million dollar fortune, a genius driver and married to Miss World, Peter Revson seemed to have it all. But reality, says Mark Hughes, was not so simple He was the Grand Prix driver straight from the Hollywood A-list. An offspring of one of modern America's icon dynasties, this handsome, debonair sophisticate would kiss goodbye to any one of a number of beautiful women, climb into...

Two Sides of the Coin

Two Sides of the Coin McLaren's effort on both sides of the Atlantic IT IS little more than ten years Since the first European constructor seriously designed a car to run at Indianapolis and took on the Americans at their own very specialist style of oval track racing. Almost predictably, the enterprising man who took this major step was Lotus chief Colin Chapman and not only did he spark off a...

A sight for sore eyes

Vision Express founder Dean Butler has put his fortune to good use – with a collection of classic cars and a restoration business in Cincinnati By Damien Smith The directions were excellent, and it’s just as well. You’d never spot Zakira’s Garage from the road. Yes, here’s another humble motoring business that doesn’t go in for the big image. Perhaps it’s better that way, because behind the doors...

The bear facts

Gruff and insular, Denny Hulme was always a reluctant star who gave away little about himself. Adam Cooper talks to the two women who knew him best in search of a clearer picture Between this year's Australian and Malaysian grands prix, Mrs C and I used up a free week with our first visit to New Zealand. On our travels around the wonderful countryside we came across the town of Te Puke. It was a...

Hard men and histrionics

To Monaco came a welcome reminder of the days when Grand Prix drivers endured pain with clenched teeth and sealed lips Television viewers the world over cannot have failed to observe - perhaps even been saddened by - the histrionics of Nigel Mansell as he sagged, near to collapse, at the end of the Principality's 50th Grand Prix. I found myself wondering what Denis Clive Hulme made of it. At the...

Jody Scheckter - Better than trophies

Silverware doesn't mean much to me but the cars I raced through the '70s do. They are prized relics of my old life and each has a story of its own. They're not a bad investment, either By Damien Smith The past is of little relevance to Jody Scheckter. He lives in the moment, so buffalo, mozzarella and ice-cream fill most of his waking thoughts — and probably his dreams, too. Laverstoke Park, his...
