Modern Times

If a litre of optimism is worth a second a lap, a lot of lap records will be broken this year. As each Formula One team has launched its new car to the press we've been subjected to buckets of fine words and dry ice. And the more there is to prove, the more theatrical the launch - none more so than for this season's completely new team, British American Racing. Actually, these days no team is...

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

Good things come in small packages

... but talk to the chassis designer before you begin building him a Formula 1 engine. Back in the early 1980s, John Barnard established himself as the dominant design leader within Formula 1. His composite chassis, electrohydraulic finger-flip gear changes and brutally pared-down overall packaging proved both race-winning and trend-setting. He was certainly no politician and tended to bulldoze...

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...

Reflections in the dark

ALTHOUGH a Grand Prix may finish at 3 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon we seldom leave the circuit much before 8 p.m. for somehow there is always someone to talk to, something to see, details to cross-check, facts to verify and so on. Long Beach was no exception and with so many cars crashed into walls during the race it was worthwhile hanging about at the paddock entrance to survey the wrecks as they...

Bluebird CN7

When future Champ Car designer and B.A.R. technical director Malcolm Oastler was growing up in Australia, Donald Campbell's record-breaking attempts caught his attention and admiration You can't ignore a car like Donald Campbell's Bluebird — it's so striking. It's so different from the earlier record cars, which in comparison were just trucks with big engines in them, whereas Bluebird was a new...

Modern times

In the tight-kint, suspicious world of Formula One, it's not easy to keep a secret. Just like the unlovely beargarden of modern party politics, there's usually someone with an axe to grind who is ready to betray a confidence. Gossip precedes most things that happen (as well as many things that don't), and rarely is one completely surprised by a piece of news. Which is why the BAR reshuffle came...
