April fuel I’ve just been reading about your article in April’s issue on your ideas for shaking up the world of F1. I was particularly interested in the use of the word ‘punkish’ to describe what the sport needs right now. This grabbed my attention as I happened to use the same language to describe the approach we’re taking on some of the work that we’re doing for motor racing, in particular F1...

A.D.A.C. 1,000 kilometres

Sweeping victory for Porsche Nurburgring, Germany, May 28th What the entry list for the annual 1,000-kilometre race on the Nurburgring lacked in quality it made up for in quantity. As it was held only two weeks before Le Mans the Ferrari team did not enter any 330P4 cars, nor did any of the agents enter their 330P3/4 cars. Ferrari sent a token entry in the form of a Dino with 2.4-litre V6 engine...

Britain is Supreme in International Motor-Cycle Racing

C. Posthumus reminds us that Britain is Supreme in International Motor-Cycle Racing A survey of our past and present success in the Two-Wheeler Field, in which, for example, since the Kaiser War British motor-cycles have won the 500-c.c.

Continental Notes

Usually when the Le Mans 24-hour race is finished we hear no more from the district of Sarthe until the end of the year, when the regulations for the next event are published. This year it has been a different story for ever since the end of the 24-hour race the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and its dignitaries have been closely involved with members of the C.S.I. in actions contrary to the rules of...

Matters of moment

The future of Le Mans Le Mans, instituted in 1923 and once regarded as the most important sports-car race of all, is now being openly criticised, this year's race being described as uninspiring or downright dull. This seems to stem from the quality of the entries, there being no "works" Ferraris or Alfa Romeos. It has caused a plea for a return to the "traditional" Le Mans, contested by "touring...

FISA abandons the Sportscar Championship

Two lines in the FISA Bulletin published on October 7 sufficed to terminate a World Championship: "Due to the extremely small number of manufacturers interested in entering, the 1993 Sports Car World Championship has been cancelled."

The 55th Targa Florio

A black day for Porsche Cerda, Sicily, May 16th This year the Targa Florio was unusual, for the island was not ringing to the sound of V12 Ferraris as in the past; in fact not even a flat-12-cylinder Ferrari engine rent the Sicilian mountains, for Enzo Ferrari gave the race a miss this year, which was strange, for the little 312P would have been very competitive, but no doubt he felt that one car...
