Tackling North Wales by Lancia Stratos and RAF Hercules (sort of...) before pondering Formula 1's current passing problem I had been to Machynlleth in North Wales before, back in the late 1970s. I remember too-tight restraint belts quite painfully preventing me from holding my breath as skilled rally star Andy Dawson hurled ‘our’ Chequered Flag Lancia Stratos round one of the great classical...

1983 British Grand Prix - Rather dull

  The last Formula One race was on June 12th, a gap of five weeks in mid-season being an eternity for the enthusiast to wait, but for the teams, it was a welcome break to get stuck in and catch up on the build and design programmes.

1989 British Grand Prix race report - The price of progress

Australian races

Warwick Farm (February 14th.) Races used to be Cooper benefits, but they now look like becoming Brahham benefits, and the Warwick Farm race would have been but for that well-known Scot and his well-known Cheshunt car, though Graham Hill in the Scuderia Veloce car was all set to win when steering trouble dropped him back. 45 Laps-164 Kilometres 1st : J.
