The Austrian Grand Prix

A Well-Earned Victory – Knittelfeld, August 14th In spite of the Osterreichring being in the middle of the country and difficult of access, from whichever direction you approach, few people miss the annual visit to the very scenic circuit. After the slow, twisty circuits like Monaco and Zolder the high-speed corners of the Osterreichring are refreshing, and after the stadium of Hockenheimring it...

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

Lotus 20/22

With Formula Junior regaining popularity, now’s the time to invest in one of Colin Chapman’s creations. Which type will you go for?By Richard Heseltine It always was a catchy title. Fifty years young, Formula Junior is undergoing something of a renaissance, an under-the-radar second – or possibly third – coming with packed grids attracting newbies and old hands alike to entry-level historic...

1967 British Grand Prix race report - Team Lotus Dominate

The choice of the R.A.C. fell on Silverstone this year, so with the help of the BRDC and most of the country's motor clubs the British Grand Prix was held on the wide-open spaces of the airfield circuit. Entry was by invitation and all the big teams were represented along with more than the usual number of private owners, some newcomers being given a chance to try their hand at Grand Prix racing...

Modern Times

While Ferrari scored a predicted 1-2 at Silverstone, helped no end by the superiority of Bridgestone's wet-weather tyres over Michelin's, the chief excitement of the meeting surrounded the financial fate of the Arrows team. Non-payment of £3.2 million-worth of bills due to Cosworth for the team's engines meant that, on Niki Lauda's orders, the vital electronic control units needed to run at...

Up the creek without a saddle

Nuvolari, Rosemeyer, Surtees and Hailwood were bike stars who made seamless transitions to four wheels, from leaning to sliding. But a two-wheel hero's speed, balance and competitive edge doesn't guarantee four-wheel success. Fate can play a hand, as Colin Goodwin explains Geoff Duke Lancashire's Geoff Duke was at the top of motorcycle racing at the end of the 1951 season. He'd just won the 350...

McLaren: Life after Bruce

When the inspirational leader who drove the team died, McLaren could have spun into the ground. Instead it regrouped and vindicated his vision and his faith Words: Paul Fearnley. Photography: Alex P There was a lot to think about. But Bruce Leslie McLaren — boss/designer/engineer/tester/racer — preferred it that way. Three years of his New Zealand childhood had been spent in plaster, in traction...

Blackballed at the Brickyard

When the CART establishment discovered that Team Lotus was building another Indycar, the reaction was far from positive. Gordon Cruickshank describes the car that became an outlaw It's tough being a new kid on the block, especially if you come from somewhere far away. That's what Lotus found when Colin Chapman decided to tackle Indianapolis. He was doing things a different way, and that didn't...

The Monaco Grand Prix

Gambler's luck  Monte Carlo, May 15th The planning of the 1983 Grand Prix season is not working out too well. It started off all right in Brazil, with everyone surprisingly fit and ready to race, then the scene moved to Long Beach where there was an all-pervading atmosphere of it being the last Formula One race in the Californian sea-port town. The European scene began entirely on the wrong foot...

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...
