United States (East) Grand Prix

Continental Notes

Ferrari My practical knowledge of motor racing only goes back to 1932, but even so, the name of Enzo Ferrari and his Scuderia Ferrari was well in the news then, and still is today.

In my early days the Scuderia Ferrari was synonymous with Alfa Romeo, and the name Alfa Romeo meant motor racing, and every now...

Sebring 12-hours

Ford Mark IV wins on first outing After the clash of heavy machinery at Daytona, Sebring was an anti-climax. The six Mk. II Fords; two 330 P4 Ferraris, two 330 P3/4 Ferraris and two Chaparrals had dwindled at this, the second round of the Manufacturers' Championship, to two Fords and two Chaparrals. Various excuses were given for Ferrari's non-appearance, the closeness to the Le Mans test day,...

The Paris Salon

THIS year from October 6th-16th saw the 47th Paris Motor Show to be held and even if it is no longer the gay and sparkling array of special exhibits that it used to be, it still has an atmosphere that makes it one of the best of the International Motor Exhibitions. Where motor cars are concerned I am easy to please for I really like all types, though I must admit to liking some more than others,...

"In the race itself, Alonso is the best"

During the Geneva Motor Show, we had an opportunity to chat to Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo about road cars, motor sport... and Bernie Ecclestone's succession writer Andrew Frankel Luca Cordero di Montezemolo is late, but not by much. To be frank, I'm surprised I'm getting to see him at all. It's press day for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, an event likely to be recalled by history as the...

The World Cup keeps turning

Cancelled races, recession, swine flu… all have affected A1GP, the unique World Cup of Motor Sport. But none of this, it seems, will halt its progress by Rob Widdows The Irish commentator was beside himself with excitement, almost choking on a surge of national pride. The Irish racing driver, arms aloft, was shouting with joy as he crossed the line. He’d worked hard for this. A frenzy of Irish...

Top Italian Cars in Britain

Part two of a series in which Motor Sport interviews some of the owners Patsy Burt's hill-climbing and sprinting, activities are sufficiently well known not to need recalling here. She feels that her Ferrari 330GT is the next best thing in general handling to her racing car. The car, which was collected from the factory in 1965, has now done about 30,000 miles, mainly on longer hauls on the...

Second-hand car dealing - with a big, big difference

So what's it like to own a modern Ferrari Formula one car? "If you like golf, it's like playing Augusta with Tiger Woods. If you like tennis, it's like playing Andre Agassi on the Centre Court at Wimbledon." Thai's how F1-2000 owner Paul Osborn describes it. The Essex car dealer has owned and driven plenty of F1 machinery in his time, but nothing compares to F1-2000. "The drive is just so many...
