Cast of Characters

It's like being back in the Sixties! "We’re at Silverstone during the Coys Historic Festival. The speaker is a tall, burly, silver-haired man, who alternates between inspecting cars and greeting old racing friends: Cliff Allison, Tim Parnell, Bruce Halford, for he too is a Formula One driver of those days. The results tables don't proclaim Ian Burgess as one of the greats, but there was a time...

Victory Ts

The Revolutionary 312T began a golden period for Ferrari. Niki Lauda and its creator, Mauro Forghieri, tell Alan Henry why it was so good From 'the moment' Niki Lauda first tried Maranello's 312 `trasversale' in late 1974 it was clear to the young Austrian that his new car might well be the class of the field in the following year's World Championship. So it proved. Powered by the brilliant 3-...

Moss runs 'Ring around Clark

Sir, With regard to Moss versus Clark in your 'Uncrowned Duels' feature (August issue), the most telling comparison was at the 1961 German GP at the Niirburgring: Moss in the Rob Walker Lotus-Climax, Clark in the Team Lotus-Climax. Practice: Moss 9min 01:7sec, Clark 9min 08.0sec. Race: Moss 9min 01.0sec, Clark 9min 0'7.2sec. Result: Moss first in 2hr 18min 12.4sec, Clark fourth in 2hr 19min 29....

Rumour Scotched

Sir I was most interested to read "Rich Rumour" in October's issue. Having had access to official Mercedes archives, I am able to establish with a fair degree of certainty that the remains of Dick Seaman's crashed Mercedes are not buried in the grounds of Pull Court, near Tewkesbury. This has nothing to do with any pro or anti-German feelings of Mrs Beattie Seaman, but to the fact that Mercedes...

The grit in the oyster

Chris Irwin The social revolution of the sixties was mirrored in racing by a swathe of free-wheeling, up-and-coming hotshoes. Chris Irwin was listed among them, but, as Adam Cooper reveals, he stood apart from the crowd For the last couple of years I've been working on a biography of Piers Courage, and it's been fascinating to talk to all who knew him well. But there's one man whose name keeps...

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 HMSO and Motor Racing

I remember what a surprise it was, back in 1948, when I received an unbound, gestetnered publication with the title of Investigation into the Development of German Grand Prix Racing Cars between 1934 and 1939 (Including a description of the Mercedes World's Land Speed Record Contender) by Cameron C Earl. The other day I came upon this publication among a pile of other historic bits and pieces....

Brown-eyed handsome man

He was blessed with looks, charisma and speed and rivals thought the world of him. He won but a single World Championship Grand Prix, but there was more to Lorenzo Bandini than such simple statistics imply Writer: Nigel Roebuck Lorenzo Bandini... Such a mellifluous name for a racing driver, it always seemed to me, like Clay Regazzoni or Johnny Servoz-Gavin. And they all looked the part, too....
