The Corse of true love

…never did run smooth between garagista Enzo Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. Yet their turbulent partnership through the 1930s laid the bedrock of the Ferrari legend Writer Paul Fearnley A chill March day yet his car is naked: tubes, wires, rivets. He’s road-tested bare chassis before. That, though, was a long time ago, and this is momentously different. In suit, shirt and tie, he, never the most agile,...

Ferrari’s 20 greatest F1 drivers

Ferrari will have two crowned champions at the helm when it wheels its cars to the grid for the 2014 Australian Grand Prix – a first in world championship terms since Italy 1953, when Alberto Ascari and Nino Farina formed part of a six-strong line-up at Monza. The team has hired many illustrious names before and since, but which 20 most capture the essence of Ferrari?Writer Simon Arron A curious...

The Editor looks at the legand of the invincible Talbot-Darracos

One of Louis Coatalen's great interests was motor racing and when he became Chief Engineer of the STD organisation he was able to indulge this whim to the full, perhaps at the expense of the share-holders. Naturally, he set his sights on winning the Grand Prix. In 1912 his small cars, based on the standard Sunbeams, had given the bigger cars a fright. In 1913 Coatalen's side-valve GP Sunbeam had...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

TUNING TEST VW-Brabham's Lighter Formula 3

TUNING TEST VW-Brabham's Lighter Formula 3 JOHN JUDD, business associate of Sir Jack Brabham since 1966 and whose Rugby-based Cosworth DFV Formula I engine building activities were the subject of a MOTOR SPORT profile in 1978, enjoyed August 1982 heartily.

On the trail of Tazio

In the Italian town he called home, a new exhibition pays tribute to Tazio Nuvolari’s skills at the wheel – and with a cameraBy Rob Widdows In this part of the world you can gaze up at the balcony made famous by Romeo and Juliet. You can wander the streets of Brescia, home of the Mille Miglia, and imagine Moss and Jenks whistling through in their Mercedes-Benz. You can meander down to Maranello;...

Whitney Straight - Racing Driver

I find it astonishing that, whereas books have been written about so many racing drivers, from those of the pioneer days, through the interim periods, to the present day, nothing has appeared, so far as I can recollect, about Whitney Straight, or Earl Howe' for that matter. So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

Continental notes

Swiss Grand Prix The Swiss Grand Prix used to be one of the classic motor races, held on a very fast and challenging circuit in the forest of Bremgarten, on the outskirts of the Swiss capital city Berne. It all started in 1931 when a big exhibition to encourage sport was held in Berne, and the local motorcycle club organised some racing on the paths through the forest. This motorcycle racing...

FOCA to Blame

Sir, While DSJ is right in saying that the Long Beach GP will no longer take place because of lack of money, this statement needs a qualification. The Swiss GP is now cancelled, and the Las Vegas and New York GPs are almost certain non-runners. What are the common denominators? 1. The Formula One Constructors' Association; 2. Television rights to live broadcasting. In all events FOCA are...
