By Tim Nicholson. 138 pp. 8 4/5 in. x 6 1/2 in. (Cassell and Co. Ltd., 35, Red Lion Square, London, WC1. £1.65.)

A second-tier sport? Improved though it might be, IndyCar racing still has hurdles to overcome if it is to be regarded as a truly major league sport Indycar racing stands at a critical juncture in its history in this autumn of 1994.

Who'd buy an F1 team?

Toro Rosso is up for sale, but buying a piece of the F1 action requires far more than just money. Still, there are rewards to be had  By David Tremayne F1 team for sale: it’s not exactly a new phenomenon. In these expensive days of Formula 1, teams tend to change hands quite frequently.
