The Pug that flew

As Group C climaxed with its 3.5-litre regulations in the early Nineties, Peugeot developed a prototype so extreme, yet so reliable, that it could race for 24 hours at Formula One speeds. Gary Watkins tells the story of the fastest-ever sportscar Take out of the equation those pedal-to-metal laps around the old eight-mile Spa-Francorchamps or the pre-Hella Licht-S Osterreichring, and a Porsche...

On Motor Cycles

Over the past twelve to eighteen months a great number of people have discovered the motorcycle and it has become quite the "in" thing, as long as the sun is shining.

Le Mans

-A French Victory Le Mans, France, June 10th/11th The 1972 Le Mans 24-Hour Race, or Grand Prix of Endurance as it is called officially, will not go down in history as one of the more exciting events, but it will have its place, for it saw the first victory by a French car since 1950, when Louis Rosier and his son won with a Lago-Talbot. This year it was the French Matra team who won, success...

International Lombank Trophy Meeting Snetterton, March 25th

THIS was the first meeting of the season which featured a race for the new 1 1/2-litre Formula 1, and a direct comparison with last year's 2 1/2-litre cars was possible as the Inter-Continental and Formula 2 cars were lumped together in one race; the 100-Mile Lombank Trophy. Team Lotus entered one 2 1/2-litre car for Ireland and a 1 1/2 for Jim Clark, Yeoman Credit entered two 1 1/2-litre Coopers...

Grosser Preis der Schweiz

By our Special Correspondent On paper, and for that matter in practice, the Swiss G.P. for Formula 1 cars, held on the Bremgarten Circuit on June 4th, promised to be a first-class affair, but it turned out to be another demonstration of how to go motor-racing in the grand manner, by the Alfa-Romeo team.

Flat race

Today, Formula 1 teams expect two years' warning of technical rule changes. Thirty years ago, they got four months. Cue panic - then a prime example of pure inspirationwriter Paul Fearnley All stop! The bombshell that sucked the air from beneath their skirts detonated on Thursday November 3: from two tonnes of ground-effect grip to 'two tonnes of flat-bottomed fun'. Yet the governing body's only...
