Continental notes

After the victory by the Ford "Mirage" in the Francorchamps 1,000-kilometre race the question a lot of people were asking was "What is a Mirage?" Put into simple terms it is an improved Ford GT40, but not improved in the same way as a Mark II or so radically redesigned as a Mark IV. It will be recalled that when Ford first started in European racing they took over Eric Broadley and his Lola...

Maserati Miscellany :

Testing the Merak and a brief drive in the exclusive Khamsin Even with the World economic turmoil in full spate there remain those who "have" even if there become more of those who "have not". Those who "have" continue to spend and, as ever, their indulgences include fast, exotic cars, particularly and ironically the "haves" of the oil-producing Middle Eastern countries. Such extravagances ensure...

Forghieri joins Lamborghini

Mauro Forghieri, the chief engineer who presided over Ferrari's Formula One fortunes from 1963-83, has left the company to join Lamborghini, the rival Italian supercar manufacturer now owned by Chrysler.

It was all very confusing because normally I can only keep track of the passage of time by the fact that race day means it...

Lancia Stratos

I was quite frankly relieved to climb out of Alex Moore's Lancia Stratos — my shoulders were stiff, my gear-changing arm ached, and my fingers were numb with the pummelling through the steering wheel. And I was hooked. As soon as I had straightened up, an intense compulsion to leap into it again gripped me — to subject the ears to that blood-curdling wail, the body to that powerboat buffeting,...

Still crazy after all these years

Many things have changed over the past 50 years at Lamborghini. Importantly, though, it hasn’t lost sight of why we all fell in love with it. Two o’clock in the afternoon is not a busy time in the centre of Sant’Agata Bolognese. Most of the shops are shut, as is the Tabaccaio. Just off the main square a lone pizza restaurant remains open and, while it looks like many other pizzerias, there’s...

Interview: Jochen Neerpasch

Der neue Neubauer? As Mercedes-Benz racing cars once more become Silver Arrows, it falls to former Porsche, Ford, BMW and Talbot man Jochen Neerpasch to inherit the mantle, if not perhaps the high profile, of Alfred Neubauer. Mike Cotton analyses the past achievements and optimism for the future of a busy team manager whose commitment to the expansion of international sports-car and saloon racing...
