Aston Martin Hat-Trick in B.A.R.C. 9-Hour Sports-Car Race

David Brown’s Aston Martins finished first and third in the Nine-Hour Race at Goodwood on August 20th, with the lone Ecurie Ecosse D-type Jaguar as meat in the Feltham sandwich. The race, revived after a lapse last year, bringing Le Mans atmosphere to Sussex, has always been won by Aston Martin. This year the field of 35 promised a battle between three four-cylinder 3-litre Ferraris, three...

Honda withdrawal leaves team in fight for survival

Honda’s withdrawal from F1 has sent shockwaves through the sport, and left Ross Brawn and Nick Fry scrambling to find a new team owner before the start of the season. Coming 40 years after Honda closed its original F1 operation, the decision was made public in Tokyo on December 6, although the management had known for a week. Prior to the announcement rumours had begun to sweep round the...

XIII Gran Premio Napoli

Another Bad Day for Ferrari Naples, May 6th. It seems that neither the English nor the Italians can ever take any notice of one another's calendar, for once more the Naples Grand Prix was held the same weekend as the International Trophy at Silverstone. The Continental teams of Ferrari and Gordini divided their interests, while Maserati refrained from entering at either race. The first practice...

Continental Notes

There is a rule in Grand Prix racing that allows a team manager to change his drivers from one car to another during a race, providing, of course, that this is done at the pits, and with the World Championship events this is frequently done, not only in an attempt to gain a victory, but to keep the top drivers supplied with points. In many ways this is a reasonable regulation, but in other ways...

A racer and a gentleman

Michele Alboreto loved his job. That's why he pounded on in F1 cars that could never do him justice. That's what led him to sportscars and a tragic death. David Malsher recalls his hero Wednesday April 25, 2001, had been a bad day at the office, and I drove home with Springsteen blaring out. Upon arrival, the phone was taken off its hook, the TV turned off and, for 10 hours, I was deaf to the...

Vallelunga 6-Hours to Matra-Simca

Rome, March 25th. Last year's onslaught by Ferrari on the World Championship for Makes was impressive, but not entirely without fault, and had there been any strong opposition the Italian team might not have won ten races from ten starts. At the Vallelunga circuit near Rome, for the first European round in the 1973 championship, Matra-Simca sent two cars to oppose Ferrari and dominated the...

Elf fuels controversy

The Brazilian Grand Prix commenced at Interlagos on March 26, and was won in Paris 18 days later. Instead of having shot from the starting blocks, Formula One had, for many, shot itself in the foot. Michael Schumacher, who, like David Coulthard, was disqualified for running irregular fuel, did not attend the International Court of Appeal. He has seen enough of Paris. In the course of the last...

Targa Florio

Sicily - 720 km. - June 10th. Unlike last year the Targa Florio was not in the World Championship series and as a result it lost a lot of its glory and the entry was small. Run over 10 laps of the 72-kilometre Little-Madonie mountain circuit the only factory entries were a Ione 3-litre Maserati driven by Taruffi, two 3.5-litre Ferraris shared by the pairs, Collins/Castellotti and Gendebien/...

Competition Notes and News

News from the F.I.A. Since the provisional classification of cars for International events was published last Autumn some detail changes were made before this Appendix "J" came into force for 1966. The most important being in Category C—racing cars, where groups 7, 8 and 9 have been reshuffled. For those who like to know in detail what is going on I append a complete list of the F.I.A....
