Porsche 928S

Series 2 Porsche’s success in the world markets, and particularly in Britain, throughout the recession remains a phenomenon. A brief cutback in production in 1982 was the result of lower demand in the States as the 928 model temporarily lost ground in the performance market and the 924 model yielded to the 944, but in the UK it was business as usual with higher registration figures being...

Extended Testing

Road tests, usually, are a matter of cramming as many miles as possible into a seven-day loan and hoping that all the virtues, faults and foibles will be uncovered. So it is possible to miss the fact that the heating system may not be much good if we test the car in the summertime, or that the ventilation is poor if the test is carried out in the depths of winter! As we mentioned in our Golf 2...

Audi Coupe Injection

In 10 weeks the managing editor has covered 5,300 miles in his Audi Coupe Injection at a surprisingly good average of 30.2 mpg, the five-cylinder engine having used two litres of oil in this time. At the time of ordering it was a straight choice between the new Sierra XR4i and the Audi Coupe, both priced at a shade under £10,000 "on the road" with radio, delivery charges and the rest. The Sierra...

Brands Hatch 1,000 Kms

Fine Canon team win The 1984 World Endurance Championship events are, generally, spaced out a month apart as the teams wished, but with a fine sense of timing F1SA allowed the BRSCC organised, British Aerospace-sponsored Brands Hatch 1,000 Kms race to be held on July 29th, just a week before the Mosport 1,000 Kms. A few teams, notably John Fitzpatrick's Skoal Porsches, decided to do both but for...

World Endurance Championship

Fuji 1,000 Kms Europeans lose face Nine years ago Niki Lauda made a decision which cost him the Formula 1 World Championship, when he pulled out of the Japanese Grand Prix at Fuji. It was pouring with rain and the track was flooding in places, and in those conditions he felt that he might have his second major accident in a space of three months. In October the World Endurance Championship teams...

Continental News

Continental News THE FRIBOURG HILL-CLIMB. Hill-Climb was run on THE Fribourg Hill-Climb was run on Sunday, the 26th July. As this event counts towards the European Hill-Climbing Championship for 1931, the entry list was well filled, and the competition for fastest time very keen. A certain amount of interest was taken from the event, however, by the absence of the Nacional Pescara racers, driven...

ADAC 1,000 Kilometres

Having just had their Monza victory confirmed following an appeal to the ruling body, Derek Bell and Stefan Bellof went ahead in the World Endurance Championship for Drivers with a very narrow victory on the new Nürburgring circuit, 4.55 kilometres of twisting, plunging track which puts heavy demands on good braking. The more important Constructors' Championship is already a foregone conclusion...

Matra moves on

Imola, June 2nd Alfa Romeo's sweeping victory at Monza in April flattered only to deceive. As last year, the Matra-Simca team has had to overcome engine unreliability early in the season but having done so, no team can stand up to the speed and teamwork of the French . At Imola, a 5.1-kilometre track near Bologna, the Matras of Beltoise/Jarier and Larrousse/Pescarolo formed the front row of the...

Gulf wins "economy" Le Mans

The combination of a fuel-consumption formula (all the cars had to run for 20 laps or more without refuelling), the absence of many graded drivers, and—worst—the lack of Matra, Alpine, Ferrari or Alfa Romeo prototypes, all combined to make this year's Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans decidedly a non-event, and the spectators reacted by staying away in their thousands. Victory always seemed within...

Speed from Italy - The Fiat Abarth OT 1000

Attractive lines and GT performance from the one-litre engine make the Abarth a favourite. Strictly speaking the Fiat Abarth Coupe we tested is not a modified car, but a recognised model in its own right. Carlo Abarth has developed a number of modifications for this pretty Fiat model, all of them within the F.I.A. Group 3 competition regulations, and the finished article is offered in this...
