Ferrari Wins The Mille Miglia

At the end of April, Italy ran her famous 1,000-mile Brescia-Breseini sports and touring car race under dreadful weather conditions. There was a record field of 383 and of them all, Giannini Marzotto's Ferrari, with its V12 engine enlarged to 2,340 c.c., and a Supperleggera coupé body, gained a convincing victory at 76.57 m.p.h. Ferrari themselves had put in Ascari and Villoresi in the new 3-...

The euphoria as he tasted his own third world title must have been almost overwhelmed by a towering surge of relief— the same emotion that reduced him to tears at Monza after he...

Dream Machines

With one, you just flex the big toe of your right foot and the rev-counter needle leaps a few hundred rpm. With the other, you stab the throttle and it pulls away with the relentlessness of an electric motor, the rate at which it accelerates being the only audible key to which gear has been selected.

In the master's wheeltracks

By Stirling Moss The arguments about who is the greatest racing driver of all time have gone on as long as motor racing itself, and, no doubt, they always will. But the truth is that comparisons between different eras are effectively impossible – you just can’t stack up a Caracciola or a Rosemeyer against a Senna or a Schumacher. If you could take Tazio Nuvolari into a 1998 Formula One paddock he...

1994 British Grand Prix race report - A family affair

  Damon Hill did what father Graham never achieved when he won the British Grand Prix, and he did it in style.   Phil Hill's Ferrari was just ahead. A little further in front of the American was team-mate Wolfgang von Trips' similar car. In his mirrors, Graham Hill could feel Jack Brabham hovering like a Nemesis. His own brakes were fading. Did he try to pass Hill before Copse, or dare he risk...
