Notes on the cars at Buenos Aires

Lotus: Gone are the sleek black and gold creations from Hethel, they are now green with yellow lining. Gone too is the fatuous title "John Player Special", they are now "Martini-Lotus" (though Motor Sport has never considered a Lotus anything other than a Lotus). The reason for these changes is the end of the financial support from the John Player tobacco firm, after a long and successful...

Phoenix in waiting A distinctive 1960s racer is coming under the hammer, but will need lashings of TLC I will declare an interest. I offer consultancy advice (often justifiably ignored) to auctioneer Bonhams, whose Goodwood Festival of Speed sale includes some real rarities. Among these are the (hopefully) still restorable remains of a uniquely significant ex-Jim Clark sports-racing car – the...

(from the Oh Dear! department)  Not too much this month! Due to misinformation supplied and a misunderstanding, with a lack of direct contact, we got into an awful muddle over what the McLaren team have been up to, with regard to the South American races. The easiest way to sort it out is to tabulate the use and construction of all the M29 cars, and this is set out below. One of the...

Lunch with... Derek Bell

He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

Young bloods

After Ascari’s death in 1955, Luigi Musso and Eugenio Castellotti fought for his mantle as Italy’s top driver. Chris Nixon charts the brief and tragic careers of two great rivals. "Listen lads, you won’t have to work too hard to win this race. At the start, I'll set the rhythm. You follow me, and you won't shred your tyres. Ten laps from the end, I'll pull over, and then you two, between you, can...

The power or the glory?

Is Formula One today merely a sad, bloated caricature of its once glorious past or have we, in fact, never had it so good? Shaun Campbell casts an impassive eye over the years and decides Was there ever a golden time of Grand Prix racing and, if so, when was it? What gives it distinction? Are we experiencing one now, or the good old days finally gone forever? And they really that good? Is it even...

He takes to task the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile for being master of our...

Jenks on...

Wins vs titles, 1978 Recently there has been a lot of dissatisfaction expressed over the points-scoring system for the world championship. With five or six potential winners in each race, as well as a couple of outsiders, it is perfectly feasible for a driver to become world champion without ever winning a race. How you view this depends on what you think the object of the exercise is; either...

Jones and FW07 reunited for Melbourne TGP race

Alan Jones, the 1980 Formula One Champion, could star in the opening round of the 2001 FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Car Championship if as looks increasingly likely, the series supports the Australian Grand Prix in his home town of Melbourne, next March. Event organisers are eager that Jones, 54 in November, should contest the event. Winner of 12 GPs, he would become the first ex-F1 driver to...
