Senna's dirty weekend

It was the kind of thing a team would nowadays doubtless suppress – an F1 star sneaking away to try his hand at rallying. But such things were possible in 1986, even when the driver was Ayrton Senna. He relished every secondWriter Steve Bennett Ayrton Senna – rally driver. Now there’s a cover line any magazine editor would covet. It happened too, on a blustery, grey Welsh hillside in 1986.

It would seem that we were somewhat hasty in assuming that competitors in modern oars find a 1,000-mile run on British main roads at a 25-m.p.h. average boring.

Lunch with… Norman Dewis

During 33 years and more than a quarter of a million 100mph miles, Norman Dewis was a dedicated team player who helped make Jaguar great By Simon Taylor Marque loyalty is an old-fashioned concept these days.
