Kyalami 1,000 Kms

Bell's race, Ickx's title For the first time since 1974 the Sports Car Club of South Africa was allocated a championship endurance race, the Kyalami 1,000 Kms event on December 10th being the seventh and final round of the 1983 World Endurance Championship. Run a full two months after the previous round, at Fuji, the South African event attracted a top-class entry, 25 cars from Europe including...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Il Leone rampante

1989 Hungarian Grand Prix Nigel Mansell (Ferrari 640) Some snapshot moments instantly ingrain themselves into the very fabric of grand prix legend. Nigel Mansell is at the epicentre of a remarkable number of these. Has there ever been a more sensational pass than the one he pulled on Ayrton Senna in Hungary? But that move, borne of split-second instinct, was simply the climax to a remarkable...

World Endurance Championship: Silverstone 1,000 Kms

— a cliff-hanger Maybe Jochen Mass made the most prophetic remark after winning at Vallelunga, when he commented that the cars would get better, and the drivers would get used to driving for economy. The opening round had almost been an embarrassment as the leading cars slowed, and then slowed some more to reach the finish line on their allocation of 510 litres, 15% less than last year's 600...

Beyond Midway

When we got to the halfway point of the 1988 season, even the most disinterested follower of Formula One must have realised that McLaren International had won all eight races with its Honda-powered MP4/4. Since then it has won two more and its drivers, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, have been sharing the victories between themselves, quite often finishing first and second. You may wonder what...

Formula One: Belgian GP

Near disaster After the race at Imola, in Italy, the "circus" moved north to Belgium for the next round in the Formula One Championship series. Unlike a true travelling circus the teams did not move en bloc, but all sped back to their homes in Italy, Germany. France and England where rebuilding, development, testing, and experiment continued, together with analysis and reckoning on the results of...

Formula One - Seasonal Review

A glance over the shoulder I don't go much on looking on the immediate past; if I have to look back I prefer to look back 25 years or more, into history. However, 1990 was a significant year in Formula One and much that happened can be translated into serious portent for the future. The year saw the absolute confirmation that the 3½-litre normally aspirated engine formula is a success, thanks to...

A Welcome Return

Montreal, June 12 The Canadian Grand Prix was cancelled last year, mainly due to a dispute between the two big Canadian breweries, Labatt and Molson, as to who should sponsor the event. The decision finally went to Molson's Breweries, but only after the closing date for FIA/FISA acceptance, and in addition to this big-business wrangle there was also the question of the pits and paddock...

Martini, Tarquini and Ninni

Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Fiat all owe Ninni Russo a great debt and he's still going strong. He talks to John Davenport To have seven World Rally Manufacturer titles on your CV of which six were in consecutive years is a pretty powerful indication that as a rally manager you know what you're doing. When you also have a British Touring Car title, then versatility creeps into the equation. Today,...

Formula One: Hungarian Grand Prix

By the banks of the Danube When mention was first made about a possible Hungarian Grand Prix being entered on the 1986 FISA World Championship calendar, most people raised their eyebrows briefly and took little notice. It had been fifty years since Grand Prix cars last raced through a Budapest park and street circuit and although rounds of the European Touring Car Championship were held through...
