A Worthwhile Experiment

From time to time various saleable objects arrive at the MOTOR SPORT office, sent in by manufacturers or agents in the hope that they will get a write-up in the Editorial columns, thus getting many pounds-worth of free advertising for the cost of one article. Much of this stuff is rubbish and goes into the waste bin, but occasionally something worthwhile arrives and justifies a write-up. Some...

The Swedish Grand Prix

The Six-wheelers Win Anderstorp, Sweden, June 13th Although the manipulators behind the scenes of Formula One racing have managed to bring about a degree of uniformity to most things, almost to the point of dullness, they have yet to remove all the variety from the circuits on which the Grand Prix races are held. After the seemingly unreal atmosphere of racing round the streets of Monte Carlo,...

1963 British Grand Prix race report - Clark (Lotus-Climax) uncatchable

  Silverstone, July 20th Amidst a veritable feast of racing and circus stunts, that went on for a long and full day, the BRDC were able to organise the British Grand Prix that ranked as a Grande Epreuve, and they offered some 115,000 spectators more than their money's worth. With two and a half weeks since the last Formula 1 race the Grand Prix teams not only had plenty of time to prepare their...

Continental notes

One of the most interesting occurrences in the opening of the 1965 racing season was the win by the Ford GT coupé at Daytona in the 2,000-kilometres race. Two cars were entered and they finished first and third, and though they were not the pace-setters, Gurney and Surtees doing that, the Fords showed reliability and sufficient speed. Now that Eric Broadley and Lola are no longer associated with...

The Motor Sport Month - Formula 1 & BTCC News

Unrest within FOTAThe unity of the Formula One Teams' Association has come under threat after it was suggested that Red Bull Racing did not comply with the Resource Restriction Agreement last year. Christian Horner has denied that the team did anything that conflicted with the RRA, pointing out that Red Bull was also accused of technical infringements but that FIA investigations came to nothing....

The Ferrari 312P Sports/Prototype

Making rules to govern sports-car racing is never an easy task, especially when Ferrari and Porsche give a "helping" hand and then play the game right up to the limit of the regulations. The classic sports-car races such as the Le Mans 24 Hour race and the Targa Florio are important races to win for any manufacturer of high performance cars, and the more recent classic events like the Sebring 12...

Lancia Stratos

I was quite frankly relieved to climb out of Alex Moore's Lancia Stratos — my shoulders were stiff, my gear-changing arm ached, and my fingers were numb with the pummelling through the steering wheel. And I was hooked. As soon as I had straightened up, an intense compulsion to leap into it again gripped me — to subject the ears to that blood-curdling wail, the body to that powerboat buffeting,...

A Hard-Fought Battle CEFALU, SICILY, May 3rd THE PORSCHE factory has won the Targa Florio for the last five years as well as five times before that, but not consecutively, and to many people that would be sufficient, but not for Porsche. This time they came not only to win hut to pulverise any opposition that might appear and the whole weight of the racing department was thrown into the attack....

United States (East) Grand Prix

Not a Lotus Day Watkins Glen, October 1st The United States Grand Prix, held at Watkins Glen, used to be one of the newer events on the calendar, starting in 1961 after trial events had been held on the Sebring airfield and at Riverside in California. Now in its eighteenth year at Watkins Glen the United States race is well established, though it does not seem to have developed the character of a...

Renault's balancing act

The Elf controversy notwithstanding, Renault's bid for a fourth successive Constructors' title got off to a flying start. Both of its customers, Williams and Benetton, have already crossed the line first, prompting Ferrari's Gerhard Berger to ponder: "The way that engine works, there's no way I can catch them; not in one race, not in five. Renault are in another world..." Renault Sport's goal for...
