Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far.

Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

First-class second class

Le Mans 24 Hours

In a sparkling new era of fuel efficiency and high technology, how fitting that Le Mans should be the scene of a 24 Hours that harked back to how it used to be. We’ve taken astounding levels of reliability for granted in recent years, as top-line drivers select sprint mode for the great enduro, despite the length, duration and grind that awaits them.

Grand Prix Historique, Monaco

What is it about Monaco? The high-rise apartments have trashed the old Victorian elegance, the streets and traffic are brain-fryingly chaotic and the almost palpable smell of money leaves a vulgar aftertaste. And yet no matter how many times you go back, each visit lures you in. You become transfixed. Perhaps it’s the glimpse of lives most of us can barely imagine. Mostly, at least in the month...

Silverstone Classic

Silverstone Classic BY ANY MEASURE, THE 2011 SILVERSTONE Classic was huge.

Brands Hatch Historic Superprix

Brands Hatch, Kent THE 2011 EDITION OF THE BIGGEST historic meeting on the Brands Hatch schedule was easily the best yet, with a vast entry of 450 cars spilling out of the paddock and into the spectator car parks. Ironically, while the HSCC's grids were packed, the headlining FIA Historic F1 field was down to just nine cars - the smallest grid in its history. A raft of no-shows, for many and...
