The Expendables

Despite it being a new era for global touring car competition, seven tin-top action heroes are still setting the benchmarks Remember that movie The Expendables? If it passed you by, you can be forgiven (it was never going to trouble the BAFTAs). But it’s the one where all those cheesy action heroes of the 1980s and ’90s – Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and more...

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Bigger than ever and glorious as always, the 22nd Festival was significantly more competitive than in recent years. The supercar shoot-out proved hugely popular with the enormous crowd, and Sébastien Loeb’s record attempt in the Pikes Peak Peugeot 208 T16 had fans cheering all the way. The nine-time world rally champion took fastest time of the weekend, but was still three seconds away from Nick...

From stage fright to stage-struck

Motor Sport’s editor Damien Smith experiences the highs and lows of rallying after being persuaded to turn novice co-driver for Tony Jardine Co-drive? Who wants to co-drive? If you want to go rallying, you’ve got to be the bloke behind the wheel, surely. That’s what I’d always thought. So I wasn’t overly tempted when TV pundit and motor sport mover and shaker Tony Jardine began a campaign to lure...

Hyundai Veloster

I don’t know for sure, but I think it entirely possible that this is the first time a Hyundai road car has been seen within these pages. This new Veloster is here not because it breaks any new conceptual ground (even the single rear door idea has been done by cars as diverse as the AMC Pacer and Mini Clubman), but because it remains fascinating to me to see how swiftly and confidently Hyundai has...

C G Grey, when editor of The Aeroplane, observed that humbug is the essence of politics, except when politics become imbecile, and that of the two he preferred humbug; but that we I should be careful to distinguish between politics and statesmanship which emerges once in a generation among politicians. We might think along these lines today, when so much humbug is rife. Examples? Well, that...

Just seven days after that brilliant wet-weather win in the British Grand Prix here was Lewis Hamilton at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, eager to meet his adoring public and bask in the deserved glory...

New peaks to conquer

He’s surely modern motor sport’s most versatile man, but endless success has not diluted Sébastien Loeb’s appetite for a challenge Writer Anthony Peacock So there it is. The end of an era, or perhaps the dawn of a new one. After more than a decade of effortless dominance of the World Rally Championship (to the extent that he won every single stage of the 2005 Tour de Corse, for instance)...

Haul of the mountain king

A spate of big accidents marred the first Pikes Peak hillclimb to take place on a full-asphalt course this summer. Jeremy Foley and co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov survived a terrifying plunge down the Colorado mountain, while a six-yearold girl sustained minor injuries in a separate incident. The increase in accidents was not just down to the faster track surface, according to some of the racers, but...

Subaru impressive

On his first visit to Indonesia, Colin McRae adapted to the unusual humidity and took an early lead in the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship Whenever a group of organisers get together to link their different international events into a championship series, it's not long before the FIA steps in, claims it as its own and applies its own rules. It happened in Africa and it has now happened in the Far...

New Cars for 1991

The economy may be heading for a depression, there may be a positive downturn in trade and there may even be the threat of petrol rationing should the Gulf erupt in flames, but that did not stop the world's manufacturers from putting on a tremendous show in Birmingham in September. While many of the models displayed are already on the road, it was a chance to examine models that had not until...
