International calendar for 1976

At the time of writing these words (five weeks before they appear on sale in the shops) the situation regarding Formula One Grand Prix races in 1976 is muddled to say the least, but not as muddled as the long-distance racing calendar which I will deal with later. The Formula One Constructors Association who offer the Grand Prix circus as a "package deal" to race organisers asked for X-pounds...

The Swedish Grand Prix

A very good race Anderstorp, June 19th Sweden is not the most exciting country to visit, and the Scandinavian Raceway at Anderstorp is not the most exciting of circuits, but even so the Formula One "circus" enacted a cracking good race. Throughout practice Team Lotus had continued the form they showed in Belgium, and though Andretti was not fastest in all three sessions due to a tyre "nonsense",...

Reflection in the Swedish lakes

There were one or two minor lakes in the paddock during practice, as the weather tried to wreck the Swedish Grand Prix, but fortunately the sun won the battle and the water soon evaporated. Until mid-morning on race day everyone was prepared for another Spanish Grand Prix riot, the expectations of tyre-changing being uppermost in most people's minds. The over-night modifications to the pit area,...

The Italian Grand Prix

Forza Ferrari Monza, September 9th On arrival at Monza the most noteworthy thing to see was the first-class job the Automobile Club of Italy had made of the pits and paddock facilities. By very clever pruning of the existing pits and the wall between the pit road and the track they had effectively made the pit road three cars width in place of the previous two. Openings had been cut in the pit...

Jenks on Jarama '76 One thing I like to do is dilly-dally after a race to talk to people after the noise has died down, and wait until the dust has settled and the last car is loaded — or as an American friend says, "Until the last dog's bin hung". At Jarama, the dust never did settle, for in post-race scrutineering Hunt's McLaren and Lafitte's Ligier were excluded for measurements which were...

The 28th Daily Express International Trophy

A tribute to Graham Hill Silverstone April 10th/11th The annual Springtime motoring garden party at Silverstone, organised by the BRDC with the help of the Daily Express, this year took on a new role, as it was named the Graham Hill International Trophy, in memory of that very popular figure who tragically lost his life last year, along with five members of his racing team. The two-day programme...

The Italian Grand Prix

An Anglo-Italian victory Monza, September 11th Despite annual rumours that the race must be moved eventually owing to various local objections, legal sanctions or whatever, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza continues to be the final race in the European Formula One season. Over the years we have seen the Milanese circuits change and evolve in many ways, going from road circuit to a combination of...

Grand Prix Politics LAST MONTH we left the scene in a state of deadlock between the Formula One constructors and the Grand Prix organisers, with the constructors asking for a guaranteed total of starting money and prize money for a field of 20 cars of around k,100000 and the organisers offering a total of about £53,000. Since then the constructors have come down and the organisers have gone up,...

Ferrari For the past couple of years the efforts by Ferrari in sports car racing have been a bit luke-warm with no serious onslaught big enough to worry the Porsche teams. It did not need much imagination to see that the 5-litre V12 Ferrari in 512S and 512M form was not really a match for the Porsche 917, apart from isolated instances and during the past season the Maranello works team has only...

International Calendar for 1977

This time last year there was a wrangle going on between the Formula One Constructors Association and the CSI and officially no Formula One races were scheduled for 1976. However, it was all sorted out and a very full list of events for the World Championships appeared and only one was axed, which was the Argentine GP. The Canadian GP returned to the list and two new events, one in the spring in...
