A Quarter of a Century Apart

Read that heading again. A quarter of a century, 25 years. . . that is the time span which separated the launch of the Jaguar Mk 10 from the second generation XJ6 range. Both prestige models from possibly the most audacious British car manufacturer of them all, each burst onto a market hungry with anticipation for the latest product of the Coventry factory which, at the time of both launches, was...

Reflections on the German Grand Prix

Maybe Ferrari is slow to learn, or maybe there are good business reasons, but the German Grand Prix was a repetition of 1963.
