The WEC's new rules aren't proving so popular Photo: LAT The hopes of having the same machinery competing for outright victory in the 24-hour classics at Le Mans and Daytona have faded after American brands hit out...

Who holds the power?

Ask Chase Carey about his vision for the sport a decade from now, and he’s reluctant to look that far down the line. “I operate in three-year cycles. I don’t like to get too far out there. The sport has all the attributes it needs to be great. So, in reality it’s doing the things we’ve talked about – we’re not looking to change the sport, but we can make the competition, the action on track...

Motorcycles: October 2018

Mike Hailwood's fairy-tale Isle of Man TT comeback proved his brilliance beyond doubt. Or is that merely a myth? Forty years ago this summer, Mike Hailwood commenced his motorcycle racing comeback. In June 1978 he contested his first TT race in a dozen years when he returned to the Isle of Man and famously beat old rival Phil Read in the Formula 1 event. But this was just the beginning. Two...

1986 British Grand Prix race report - In the garden of England

  At Brands Hatch, the Williams team gave a demonstration of dominance and quality. Both cars started from the front row and, apart from the first two laps, occupied the leading positions throughout, not even losing the lead during pitstops.

1983 British Grand Prix - Rather dull

  The last Formula One race was on June 12th, a gap of five weeks in mid-season being an eternity for the enthusiast to wait, but for the teams, it was a welcome break to get stuck in and catch up on the build and design programmes.

1989 British Grand Prix race report - The price of progress

  Ayrton Senna must be wondering who he’s offended these days. Since Phoenix, nothing has gone right for him. In Canada, the engine blew a big hole in itself with mere laps to run. In France, the differential broke at the restart. And in England, it was the new transverse gearbox –and perhaps a touch too much brio –which proved his downfall. Worse, from his point of view, Alain Prost took yet...

1985 British Grand Prix race report - A bit farcical

  The whole affair started off badly when the Friday morning practice session was delayed by the most appalling weather. It wasn't that nobody wanted to go out in the rain, but international rules state clearly that official practice cannot start until full medical services are ready and waiting, and these include a rescue helicopter. Ayrton Senna leads the British Grand Prix in his Lotus 97T. ...
