Profile: Lancia Stratos

The Lancia Stratos had incomparably dramatic looks and boasted spectacular successes. We trace the car’s development and detail the history of one works example Words: John Davenport.

Mat Oxley – MotoGP

Italy’s other red star Ducati is a remarkable company. It builds just 40,000 bikes each year and yet it can humble the combined might of the Japanese industry in motorcycling’s biggest race series. The little Italian marque’s domination of last year’s MotoGP World Championship was undoubtedly its greatest success in six decades of existence, cementing the legend that it is the ‘Ferrari of...

"MMM, would you like to try it ?" Just seven words spoken by former sporting and GT racing specialist Mike Salmon, but they brightened what had already been an interesting morning into an extraordinary day, for "it" was a Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer.

1975 British Grand Prix race report - Chaotic

  The British GP, for what it was worth, took place at Silverstone on Saturday, July 19th, in very unsettled weather conditions and had to be abandoned after 56 of the 67 laps had been run, not so much because of the torrential rain, but because there were so few of the competitors left on the track, the majority being tangled up in the catch-fences that now cover the run-off areas. Wilson...

Racing Notes

News from McLaren At the end of last season the McLaren Racing Team decided to cut their losses and abandon the 3-litre Ford-Indy-engined Formula One car project, as well as the abortive Serenissima-engined gap-filler.

Middle-aged but still game

Forty-two years ago the fourth string to Col Hoare’s Le Mans bow carried off an unexpected trophy – and is still flying his colours I will admit it – bawling around the Adelaide Hills in the ex-Maranello Concessionaires Ferrari 275GTB/C is not altogether disagreeable.

Ferrari: 50 years of boom and slump

Ferrari F40

Built to honour Ferrari’s Big 4-0, this adrenalin-charged device was the fastest production car of them all in 1987. But does it still stack up two decades on? When it came out in 1987, the F40 was the fastest car in the world, quicker and more powerful than its rival the Porsche 959, and the first car ever to have a three-digit top speed which began with a ‘2’. Ten years ago I wrote a not...
