Letter of the month Trying to tackle the wrong problem I read with interest of the idea to end the World Endurance Championship season at Le Mans. I fully understand the thinking, as the remainder of the season is something of an anti-climax. It didn’t used to be this way in the heyday of Group C, however. After the 24 Hours we had classic races at the Nürburgring, Spa, Brands Hatch and Fuji –...

Le Mans Prospects and Long-Distance Racing

The Le Mans 24-Hour Race has many shortcomings, as anyone will agree who has been there, but in spite of them all it still holds an attraction and lure that makes people go to it year after year, whether they be potential winners, hopeless also-rans, spectators or mere supporters. From the motor-racing enthusiast's point of view it has the attraction of being held on a real road circuit, and...

The B.O.A.C. 500

Our best race Brands Hatch, England, July 30th. It is remarkable, hut true, that we have not had a serious motor race, other than Grand Prix events, in Great Britain since 1959; this was brought home forcibly when practice began at Brands Hatch for the B.O.A.C. 500. The assembly of cars was such that British spectators must have wondered if they were not at Nürburgring, Spa or Le Mans. It seemed...

On this and that and the changing times

There is a saying in everyday use at the moment which runs "we live in changing times" and quite often a rider is added "so everything must change". I agree with the first statement, except that it is not new, or original, it is as old as life itself, for times have always changed. It is a basic fact that life must continually change, it is not possible for it to remain stationary; if it tries to...

World Endurance Championship, 1982-85 Porsche's grip is relaxing at last! Too soon though it certainly is to write an epitaph for the current Group C sportscar formula, what we have seen so far will never be regarded as anything but a Porsche benefit just as was the 3-litre/5-litre championship of 1968-1971, and the Group 5 "silhouette" formula of 1976 to 1981. For although it is expected that...

Lunch with... Dan Gurney

My greatest race - John Surtees

1966 Belgian Grand Prix John Surtees' finest hour came in his final race for Ferrari. By allowing himself to be overtaken in the rain, he set the scene for an historic victory for himself and the marque for whom he had been made world champion It's hard to name my greatest race, but if I qualify it by saying it was among my most satisfying, then winning at Spa in 1966 was very memorable. I look...

Begining of the End?

Cotton on... The future of Group C Any motor racing formula needs good management and stability of regulations in order to flourish, and at the present time the World Sports-Prototype Championship 'regulars' are alarmed at the way matters are developing for 1989 and beyond. Definitive regulations have still not been published for next season, FISA has abolished the vital post of co-ordinator...
