A test with Tyrrell

The first call was made to my brother Jim, He was asked if I might be interested in driving or racing a single seater. I'd driven a good race in an Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco at Goodwood and the track manager Robin Mackay had called Ken Tyrrell to suggest he have a look at this guy. Anyway, my brother told Ken that yes, I might be interested, though at that time I was more focused on my shooting...

The best kept secrets...

The story of the first Tyrrell was a cloak-and-dagger affair, as Neil Davis tells Rob Widdows Neil Davis was one of Ken Tyrrell’s most trusted and loyal employees, preferring to down tools rather than move to Brackley when BAR took over the team. “I wasn’t terribly impressed with Adrian Reynard when he came to talk to us in Ockham so I decided to call it a day,” says Neil. “He told us he’d never...

Legends - Ken Tyrrell

There were 23 starters in the 1970 race of whom a mere five were in the 1975 race, these being Ickx, Andretti,...

German Grand Prix

Tenacity reaps the reward Nürburgring, Germany, August 6th. During the three weeks since the last Grand Prix most of the teams had been very busy, either stocking up with cars and engines, or carrying out test programmes at Goodwood, Silverstone, Zandvoort or the Nürburgring itself, and most teams arrived in good time for the first practice, on Friday morning.

The mechanics of Jackie's racing

"They were the men who put me on the race track, and on whom I depended every time. Rob Widdows spoke to the Tyrrell faithful about our happy days racing together" Sir Jackie Stewart always cared for his race mechanics, being the first to acknowledge that his life quite literally depended upon them.

Regazzoni saves the day Monza, Italy, September 6th.
