National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Watson on Prost

They got on famously at first, only for McLaren to favour the young pretender. Even so, John Watson is still in awe of former team-mate Alain Prost. Here ‘Wattie’ spills the beans on ‘the Professor’ I’d like to talk about Alan (he uses the English pronunciation) Prost,” says John Watson after some thinking time. He’s like that, always has been: he’s a thoughtful man. “There were some interesting...

The Formula One scene

The last Formula One race to he held was the United States GP at Watkins Glen, and that was on October 5th, almost three months ago; during that time an incredible number of things have happened that will have a bearing one way or another on the Formula One scene in 1976, which should start in a few days lime with the Argentine GP at Buenos Aires on January 11th. Almost every week since that last...

New Grand Prix Cars for 1974

After all the "wheeling and dealing" was finalised and the paint shops put into action, new cars for 1974 began to appear, some being shown to the Press in metal and glass-fibre form, others in purely photographic form, but none-the-less the colourful Grand Prix scene looks like being as varied a hotch-potch of engineering, sport and big business as ever it was. While some teams are continuing...

Morocco Rally Revived

Nine years ago, among the ten qualifying events of the World Rally Championship for Makes was one which has never since been included; one which ranked with the Safari as one of the world's most challenging endurance rallies. In 1977, the world series became decidedly poorer and less colourful by the absence of one of its toughest and most demanding ingredients, the Morocco Rally. For various...

Monte-Carlo Rally

Yorkshiremen would liken it to apple pie without the cheese, Welshmen to the Llanelli rugby posts without their sospan cappings, whilst Scots would probably mutter darkly about kilts without their sporrans. The latter are essential parts of the former. Separated, they become meaningless, and many will consider this to have been the fate of January's Monte-Carlo Rally, its essence destroyed by the...

There but for fortune

Just as it finally seemed within his reach, a broken titanium component crushed Peter Revson's F1 dream Peter Jeffrey Revlon Revson had it all. Good looks, breeding, an attractive personality and an ability to drive race cars fast. In 1973 he won two Grands Prix races for McLaren, in one of them defeating the best opposition fair and square. After a struggle against his silver spoon background,...
