ON THE NEW FORMULA TWO WHEN 1IJE FIA ANNOUNCED THAT FORMULA JUNIOR would finish at the end of 1963 and be replaced by two formulae, one above and one below in technical standards to the existing Formula Junior, it seemed like a sound move. It meant that there would be two reasonable stepping stones up the ladder of single-seater racing to the pinnacle of Formula One. However, the detailed rules...

Team Managers - Cesare Fiorio

No driver has truly conquered Formula One, sports cars and rallying, but one extraordinary manager made it look easy. John Davenport talks to Cesare Fiorio. When a rally driver does well racing, like Walter Rohrl in the DTM, or a racing driver does well at rallying, like Jim Clark on the RAC Rally, it is a source of wonder to all. A much more rare thing is to find a team manager who is fully...

Continental Notes

IN spite of all the fuss and furore that the English raised over the past two years about the 1961-64 Formula for Grand Prix racing, it has now begun and is with us for the next four years. Various manufacturers who said "We won't support it" and drivers who said "We won't drive 11/2-litre cars " are still with us I am happy to say, and the racing scene is quite unchanged and is just as fast and...

A star of stage and screen I have just read the excellent Lunch With... Tiff Needell. Unfortunately there wasn't space to mention his rally exploits, so I thought I would share with you my memories of when I co-drove him in the 1996 RAC Rally, when it was still a proper RAC spread throughout the UK. Anyone on that year's event will never forget the atrocious conditions, with heavy snow and ice...

The 52nd Grand Prix of the A.C.F.

A Popular Victory Reims, France, July 3rd SINCE the previous Grande Epreuee there were two questions outstanding, what would John Surtees drive as he had terminated his contract with the Ferrari team and whether the H16 B.R.M. would he sufficiently developed to run well in practice and also to race? The first point was solved when the Cooper team arrived at Reims with three Cooper-Maserati V12...

Gilles Villeneuve on Didier Pironi: "It's war. Absolutely war."

That’s what Gilles Villeneuve said of his rivalry with team-mate Didier Pironi, who he felt had betrayed him in winning the San Marino Grand Prix. Paul Fearnley unravels the story  Photo: Motorsport Images A tenth. A lifetime. Ferrari tech chief Mauro Forghieri leaned in, shouted. Something. But his ‘innocent believer’ was in another, altogether darker place. Bad-news ticker tape discarded, arms...

Ferrari's Brickyard special

Indy 500, Monzanapolis and an F1 makeover – this car has a multiple history. Now the factory invites a GP driver to try it round Fiorano…By Damien Smith Alook of wonder has spread over the face of Marc Gené. He’s never sat in anything like this before, and the sound, a throaty 12-bore roar – that’s new, too. The oldest car he’s driven is a Jaguar E-type at the Goodwood Revival in September. And...

Jenks on...

Ferrari, 1972 My practical knowledge of motor racing only goes back to1932, but the name of Enzo Ferrari and his Scuderia Ferrari was well in the news then, and still Is today. In 1932 Ferrari was running a team of those beautiful monoposto Alfa Romeos, each with a Ferrari emblem on the bonnet, meaning it was a factory car. There was a great outcry when Alfa Romeo withdrew the monopostos, leaving...

Road Cars

So it's happened. Bentley's much-threatened SUV finally broke cover at the Geneva Motorshow and if its first job was to grab as many headlines as possible, it succeeded beyond every imaginable expectation. At a show where Lamborghini and Ferrari showed perhaps their most exciting-looking cars of the last generation, all anyone wanted to do was talk about the Bentley. Whether Bentley staff will...
