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...

New Formula One cars

As many new Formula One cars seem to be appearing as the weekly "comics" discover budding new Formula One drivers in Formula Ford, Formula Atlantic or Formula Three, but just as it is a long way from professional Club racing to winning a Grand Prix, it is also a long way from completing the building of a Formula One car to it getting the chequered flag. Although it seems that new cars are...

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...

The German Grand Prix

Well done Regazzoni Nürburgring, August 4th: For what it was worth the German Grand Prix was given the title of the European Grand Prix this year, a dubious honour it last received in 1968. As long as it remains a 14 mile-per-lap drive round the Eifel mountains the Nürburgring will always remain the Nürburgring, no matter how much it is smoothed out, widened or made easier, for the better the...

When two tribes go to war… it’s Senna vs Prost, Mansell vs Piquet as the superpowers turn the wick up on their turbo missilesBy Nigel Roebuck It was the era of Margaret Thatcher, relished by some, despised by others. It was a time of plenty, even excess, not least in motor racing, which went through perhaps the most convulsive decade in its history. The ’80s. “In my time,” said Patrick Tambay, “...

Continental Notes

Porsche plans In 1969 the firm of Porsche were putting as much effort into sportscar racing, both as regards money and materials, as the rest of the racing scene put together. It was an all-out effort to establish Porsche technical superiority as well as race winning and the objective was undoubtedly achieved, culminating in the production of 25 of the incredible 4-litre, 12-cylinder 917 models....

The Formula One scene

As was anticipated around the time of the Austrian GP there would appear to be some changes being made to the management and manipulation of the affairs of Formula One, especially behind the scenes. The CSI feel that within the Formula One Constructors Association there has been too much doubtful dealing, and even sharp practice, going on particularly in connection with demands made on organisers...

The German Grand Prix-Reality

Nurburgring, Germany, August 3rd Once a year the Formula One Grand Prix circus has to face up to the challenge of the 22.835 kilometres of the Nurburgring and they usually manage to come away reasonably unscathed and occasionally with a feeling of a job well done. Even after the Nurburgring's wild and craggy nature was somewhat tamed by the monumental facelift and tidying up process that was...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

Aintree lives—just The passing of the Aintree circuit near Liverpool from the International calendar seems to have evoked remarkably little comment yet it does not seem so long ago that the British Grand Prix was being contested over that exciting three-mile course which nestled alongside the Grand National horse-racing track. Despite the various proposals regarding the sale of Aintree by Mrs....
