That Other German GP

Michael Schumacher had two ambitions before the start of this year's German GP, which he won so convincingly at Hockenheim. One was to prove victorious in front of the vast crowd of German spectators who were showing him so much enthusiastic support, the other was to be the first German driver to win this prestigious race for 56 years. It was that long ago since a National had scored a first...

The complete works

Once a champion co-driver, Gino Macaluso gave up reading pace notes to run the family firm. Then a chance ‘barn find’ led to his creating a stellar collection of ex-works rally cars by John Davenport. Photography: Ian Fraser The approach is low-key: we appear to be heading for an industrial estate. But, past the gate, there are neat hedges and a cobbled area between two buildings, with gently...

The Italian, the Count and a swift exit from Le Mans...

One of the lesser known – and in my view rather underrated – international racing drivers of the early 1960s was the Italian Carlo Mario Abate. Driving most notably Ferraris owned and entered by the youthful Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata’s Scuderia Serenissima organisation, Abate quite regularly gave a good account of himself. Fifty years ago this season he won the over-2½-litre Gran Turismo...

BMW tests KERS as fears grow

BMW Sauber became the second team to run a KERS system on track when test driver Marko Asmer drove a modified F1.07 at Miramas just before the German GP. Christian Klien then gave the car a public outing in the general test at Jerez, just after the Hockenheim race. The first team to try a Kinetic Energy Recovery System on track was Honda, but other teams admit they are still some way off from...

Blood red brothers

Bill Boddy recalls a time when Ferrari were the young upstarts. Their thrilling battle with the well-stablished and hugely successful Alfa Romeo team ensured that the just-launched Formula One World Championship got off to a flying start When war ended Motor Racing in Europe in 1939, the Grand Prix Formula stipulated cars of up to 4.5 litres with atmospheric induction of the fuel mixture, and up...

Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport. One raced his own marque of Formula 1 car, then spent 35 years as a top team manager in endurance...

European Letter

(By means of which our European reporter occasionally keeps in touch with the Editor.) Dear W.B., For a change I am starting to write this one from the offshore island of Great Britain, instead of the Mainland of Europe, the reason being that I went on strike and flatly refused to go and watch the German GP being run at the Hockenheim Stadium. Over the past months we have heard various out-...

Continental Notes

It now looks as though there is more than meets the eye in the "manoeuvrings" to get the German GP away from the Nurburgring. One "ministry man" involved with the Constructors Associations is clutching on to a fading document said to be "signed by all the F1 drivers" in which they unanimously agreed not to race at the Nurburgring in 1977. This was signed by those in action at the time at Monaco...
