Downhill all the way

The BRM P201's first grand prix flattered to deceive: it was too little too late. Paul Fearnley tells the story and drives a survivor As his wheezy, knock-kneed steed cantered along Kyalami's main straight at almost 150mph — well, it was downhill! — the 'Cowangie Kid' had plenty of time to mull over his future. Larry Perkins, for it was he, desperately wanted to stay in Formula One — but no...

Notes on the cars at Nurburgring

The McLaren team completed the rebuilding of the car that Jochen Mass crashed at Zandvoort and it was taken to Nurburgring for him to race; this was M23/8, but in the Saturday morning practice session he tried just a bit too hard and crashed heavily, damaging the car beyond immediate repair. In consequence of this he used the spare car, M23/4, for the final practice session and also for the race...

Risk and renumeration

A recent conversation with Tony Brooks highlighted the gulf in pay between then and now – the chances of a driver surviving a crash are higher, too Stirling Moss has always been a fan of his former Vanwall and Aston Martin team-mate, Tony Brooks. Tony was wonderfully neat, stylish and tidy as well as being blindingly fast. He was plainly one of the racing world’s top three drivers. He famously...

Turning point?

Hockenheim has played a pivotal role in the past two FIA F3000 series. And once again, it has created confusion in the perceived natural order of things... When Marc Goossens crossed the line to win the Hockenheim Formula 3000 race, it was significant for several reasons. It was a first F3000 victory for him, and for Derek Mower's small but effective Nordic Racing. It ended Super Nova's...

XIX Grosser Preis Von Deutschland

Fangio the supreme master ADENAU (EIFEL), August 4th. Once again the Grand Prix teams came together to pit their skill and endurance against the fabulous Nurburgring, for the German GP is seldom a split-second race of driver against driver, but more often the result of car/driver combination against the 22.810 kilometres of the Eifel mountain circuit. While there are many people who know every...

Froy - a versatile and talented racer

Froy a versatile and talented racer Asked if I knew anything about race driver Dudley Froy, I recalled that when writing of Captain (later Sir) A G Miller, I had named him 'Mr Brooklands', which I know offended another driver who thought this accolade belonged to him. I based this assessment of Miller upon his many races and records in a wide variety of cars and motorcycles, from 1912 to 1939....

Elisabeth Junek

Obituaries One of the most successful lady racers of all time, Elisabeth Junek passed away recently in her native Czechoslovakia, aged 93. She achieved her most notable results in the 1920s, winning the two-litre sports car GP at the Nurburgring in 1927. In 1928 she led the Targa Florio outright for a while, before dropping back to finish fifth. That was to be her last year as an active...

The Austrian Grand Prix

Not exciting Österreichring, August 18th Austria was enjoying some perfect summer weather when the Formula One circus assembled in the huge paddock at the Österreichring and everything was set fair for some spectacular high speed motoring up the hills and down the swoops of one of the better Grand Prix circuits. There is no way you can class the Österreichring as an Autodrome or Stadium; along...

100 things that made F1 great

As Formula One fights to restore its credibility and rediscover its core values, we take a (not always) light-hearted look over the stuff that we miss most from the (not always) 'good old days' of F1. Some of our selections are fundamental, some may seem frivolous, but all of them are heartfelt and so, in no particular order... Monza without chicanes It was crazy and more than a little dangerous...

A punch-start for 'deaf' Hill

A punch-start for 'deaf' Hill Former Le Mans Jaguar exponent Peter Lumsden of 'Lumsden/Sargent' fame, vividly recalled from so many middle-of-the-night Raymond Baxter radio commentaries in more recent years created a wonderful hotel and restaurant named The Old Tollgate in Bramber, near Steyning, Sussex. Regular BRDC area lunches take place there and for their Christmas bash I took along Phil...
