Formula Two Review

Giacomelli's Crown Italy has crowned its first European Formula Two champion. At Hockenheim, in Germany, on September 24th Bruno Giacomelli won the final round of the series in his works March-BMW 782, but the boy from Brescia had actually clinched the title nearly two months earlier at Enna Pergusa, in Sicily. Our review of the series in the August issue of Motor Sport took us up to Giacomelli's...

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...

British Grand Prix

A jubilant John Watson holds aloft his British Grand Prix trophy to the applause of Jacques Laffite and the crowd after his highly popular victory at Silverstone at the wheel of the McLaren MP4. Below, Alain Prost was the early leader in his Renault Elf turbo, but dropped out with engine trouble. *   *   * Brazilian rising star Roberto Moreno made no mistakes in the F3 race supporting the British...

Formula Two review

After three rounds in what looks like being a tough year of Formula Two, there have been three different winners, in three different makes of car and using three different types of engine. The European championship was predictably being led by the little Frenchman Rene Arnoux in his Martini Renault but a number of very promising young newcomers to the FIA championship have emerged. These drivers...

The quiet man

A meeting many years ago Down Under sparked something big for both Jack Brabham and Ron Tauranac but while one got the fame, the other shunned it. His classically simple, yet incredibly effective cars won championships in every category for which they were designed; Formulae One, Two, Three and Atlantic. They were so sought-after that buyers literally beat a path to his door. He not only became...

What's gone wrong?

In 1991, Allan McNish's hitherto meteoric racing career hit a serious stumbling block. Where does the young Scot go from here? Here is an interesting conundrum for statisticians. In 1987, after many years of karting success (thrice Scottish junior champion, once British junior champion, once British senior champion), Allan McNish celebrated his 17th birthday and immediately took up car racing. In...

Formula 2 review: Palmer closes on Gabbiani

After the first five rounds of this year's European Championship for Formula Two, it looked as if one man was going to walk away with the title. Beppe Gabbiani won at Silverstone, Thruxton, Nurburgring and Vallelunga and although he retired at Hockenheim, he was clearly the class of the field. "No one who has won four out of the first five races, has ever lost the championship" quoth the sages,...

Formula Three Focus

There has been a great deal of discussion and speculation recently about the future of Formula Two and Formula Three. Formula Two has admittedly declined over the years, in 1978, for example, up to 42 entries were received for a single race and qualifying took place at most rounds. Now almost anyone with a car is welcomed with open arms by the organisers. With the withdrawal of support at the end...
