Two decades of the Dakar

It started as a new year’s jolly for high-living Frenchmen in the 1970s but became a high-tech showpiece in the ‘80s. Jeremy Hart looks at the most gruelling rally of them all – the Paris-Dakar January 1982. Tears at Number 10, newsreaders scrabbling for a map of north-west Africa and travel agents panicking to get News of the World scribes on the first plane to Timbuktu. Lost, for reasons still...

Goodwood International Meeting

Easter Monday, March 30th. The main event in the B.A.R.C. Easter holiday programme was the 42-lap Formula One race for £350 and the News of the World Trophy, but before this took place the large crowd around the edges of the Goodwood airfield circuit were treated to a couple of 10-lap races. The first was for Formula Three cars, in which there was a depressing number of non-starters, and Stewart...

Mosley turns the screw on NOTW

Max Mosley has continued his litigation against the News of the World by launching a libel suit against the newspaper, with specific regard to the April 6, 2008 edition – the follow-up to its original exposé a week earlier. Mosley won his privacy action against the paper after Justice Eady deemed that there was no evidence that the FIA president’s S&M session with five prostitutes involved...

The BBC: are they ready for the switch?

Twelve years after it lost out to ITV, the BBC has won back the contract to screen F1. That was the easy part – now it has to win over GP fans and casual observers alike… By Adam Sweeting In 1976, the BBC was so enthralled by the drama of the championship decider between James Hunt and Niki Lauda at Fuji that it showed edited highlights of the race lasting an entire 20 minutes. Both ITV and the...

The BBC and Motor Racing 2

Sir, May I make a plea concerning motor-racing on television, or do I mean lack of? I agree entirely with Mr. V. A. Winwright and Mrs. J. Colston (May letters), but please don't waste your money writing to motoring magazines, as these are surely the converted. We all want to see motor-racing back on the television (except the hierarchy of the BBC), so I suggest that we write to our Members of...

Aston Martin 1,2,3 in T.T.

Porsche Triumphant in 1,101-2,000-c.c. Category. Team Lotus Win Up-to-1,100-c.c. Class. Moss sets Sports Car Lap Record to 93.3 m.p.h. Some of the interest vanished from this year's R.A.C. Four-Hour T.T. race, held at Goodwood by the B.A.R.C. under the sponsorship of the News of the World, when Ferrari withdrew his entry and, because they then lacked transport facilities, Equipe Nationale Beige...

Reflections – Why Mosley is wrong to hang on as FIA president – Memories of Max’s predecessor – the late Balestre Recently it has become very fashionable in the mainstream press to denigrate Formula 1, to describe it variously as boring, offensive, obscenely rich, not a sport at all. A particular flood of invective was unleashed when it was announced that – in the absence, I’m told, of a bid from...

A Thomas-Special in retirement

Details of one of the four-cylinder card now in New Zealand Some light on what has become of the 1 1/2-litre Thomas-Special racing cars which the late J.G. Parry-Thomas designed and built has been given by a letter written to us by Sgt. G. Easterbrook-Smith, of the Royal New Zealand Air Force, whom readers will remember as a great Ansaldo enthusiast.
