GKN Daily Express International Trophy

Fittipaldi wins after Hailwood retires Silverstone, April 23rd. In years gone by the Silverstone International Trophy meeting was THE non-championship Formula One event of the season. The entry was often comparable with almost any Grand Prix and Silverstone's fast circuit provided some fierce and memorable battles. It just isn't like that any more and this year's event attracted the smallest...

In a book shop the other day, I noticed by chance a volume on the life and, for want of a better word, works of Mark Thatcher (no, please, stay tuned, I have a good reason for bringing this up). Any mention of the son of the former PM always puts me in mind of Carlos Reutemann and the 1981 Caesars Palace Grand Prix. Sad for Carlos, I know, but it can't helped. After that race, Thatcher was at his...

Blast from the future

Has anyone burst onto the scene as vividly as Mike Hawthorn did in 1952? Goodwood was the stage where he rose from the rank of walk-on extra to name-in-lights star - in one day. By Paul Fearnley From Farnham. Flaxen-haired. Faster on his day than anyone. Even Fangio. Mike Hawthorn blew in on a gale of uproarious laughter, on the back of several swift halts and in a cloud of pipe smoke. Rationing...

Substance with style

Giuseppe Farina is rarely listed among the greats. He deserves more credit, says Mike Lawrence In 1950 Giuseppe 'Nino' Farina became Formula One's first world champion, yet he remains among the least known. In his day sportsmen were rarely interviewed, and besides, he was an intensely private person who hated even posing for photographs. In modern terms he was a sponsor's worst nightmare, yet...

Notes on the cars at Kyalami

After the raveges of the Brazilian GP there was a lot of rebuilding going on in the various teams and also a lot of building of new cars ready for the South African GP. Everybody who mattered managed to get the work done in good time and fly every thing out to Johannesburg the week before the official practice began, some teams finishing off the new cars in the pit lane garages. There were no new...

Bourne to be reviled

When 1976 passed with only one BRM grand prix entry, it seemed that the team from Bourne had reached its end. But suddenly an all-new car was announced. Paul Fearnley examines the fallout from this last, spectacular act in the BRM soap opera There are two sides to every story, they say. Not everything is black and white, however — some of it is British Racing Green. But through the fog of...

Before We Lose Track

In 1973 Wilson Fittipaldi, elder brother of the World Champion, was driving in the Brabham team in Formula One races and at the end of the season he withdrew to return home to Brazil to concentrate on the building of his own Formula One car. With Richard Divilla he studied a number of British Formula One cars constructed around the Cosworth V8/Hewland transmission package, and together they built...

The Winners

We still think that winning is the name of the racing game and that if you win more races than anyone else you are a worthy champion. The success of a car design can be judged by its victories. This page of winners of the Grand Prix races of 1978 is self-explanatory. Carlos Reutemann:  1st Brazilian GP, 1st USA West GP, 1st British GP, 1st USA East GP. Niki Lauda: 1st Swedish GP, 1st Italian GP....

EVEN AT this distance of time, looking back at the wrangling that went on in the paddock before the Spanish Grand Prix still makes me feel sick and very apprehensive for the future of Grand Prix racing. The trouble all stems back to a meeting in Geneva last March, and that goes back to meetings throughout last winter. The European Grand Prix race organisers got together after the end of the 1969...

Around and About

Drophead XJ 2-door produced Lynx Motor Co. of Station Road, Northiam, near Rye, in Sussex are offering to convert the increasingly sought-after XJ6 Jaguar coupe model into a convertible. At present they do not envisage doing the same for four-door XJs (which are in wider circulation, older and usually cheaper) but there may well be a convertible XJ-S from Lynx "in the not too distant future"....
