Prophet without Honour

Sir, Re WB's comments on Cameron Earl, Autosport reported at that time that he died testing, not R14B, but a G-type ERA, for which he was the technical advisor. He was also described as responsible for the post-war research on the pre-war German GP car. What he really should be remembered for was the Autocar article in 1951 where he did his best to kill the then-current BRM concept. Lots of...

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,...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

Working with the Warwicks Sir, I write to say how very much I enjoyed Simon Taylor’s article on lunching with Derek Warwick in Jersey (April issue). Some 40 years ago my father, Samuel Lee, was company secretary to Warwick Trailers in Alresford and he always said Derek would be the next World Champion. Derek, as was stated, was frequently in the wrong car and place! I never met Derek but tales of...

Triumph from despair

1982 German Grand Prix Patrick Tambay (Ferrari 126C2) The 1982 German GP was by no means a classic. The enduring image is not of a great on-track battle, but of two drivers indulging in televised fisticuffs. But it was the race result that counted. From the depths, Ferrari scored a win that could not have been more timely. Ferrari's '82 season has been recounted many times. Suffice to say that...

Around and About

Who is Johnny Cecotto, anyway? Imagine it's a sunny Silverstone Saturday and you've wandered along, as our intrigued reporter did, in the hope of seeing some motorsport on two wheels. The day promises much, as the 750 FIM contenders tackle Silverstone as it should be, sans Woodcote chicane. Perhaps, as one well-known motoring national newspaper writer confessed to us, you are one of the growing...

'Ring of untruth'?

Sir, I am writing in response to a letter in October's issue of MOTOR SPORT in which Mr Johnson-Hill suggested Stirling Moss was superior to Jim Clark on the basis that he was was 6sec faster in practice, 6sec faster in the race and 1minl7sec ahead by the end of the 1961 German GP at the Niirburgring. Mr Johnson-Hill must be joking, surely? First of all, Moss was at his peak in 1961, while Clark...

A Place in the History Books

Porsche has, to date, won just one World Championship grand Prix. The driver was Dan Gurney who now talks to Adam Cooper about the marque's troubled relationship with Formula One. Over the past few seasons in Formula One, Ferrari and McLaren have been embroiled in a battle for supremacy at the top of the all-time Grand Prix winners list. The current score is 119 to 116 in favour of the Italians,...

Matters of Moment

Farewell, MG Writing farewell to MG is far more heart-breaking than was Lee Strout White's moving "Farewell to Model-T", because whereas that famous Ford was merely departing to make room for the new Model-A, and later the celebrated Ford V8 and a host of subsequent successful Ford models, it looks as if the death-knell has sounded for the Abingdon-built MG sports cars. Whatever the financial...

Taking the strain

Until lap 16 of the fifth round of the European F3000 Championship, the German GP support race at Hockenheim, David Coulthard appeared to be heading for an eight-point championship lead. Six days earlier, the Scot had taken his first F3000 victory at Enna, in bizarre circumstances of a kind which are unique to the outmoded Sicilian circuit. In Germany, infused with confidence, David was driving,...
