Down to the wire

You wouldn't have given tuppence for his chances of victory after qualifying, but when down in Suzuka Damon Hill kept his hopes alive with a champion's drive. From the moment that Michael Schumacher so insouciantly began to hammer home quick laps in qualifying, you began to form the impression that victory in the Japanese GP — and the World Championship — was all but a formality for the dour...

Charity begins at Lords, with hope for tomorrow

To Sir Stirling Moss’s charity dinner at Lord’s, where the only journos in the room were our own Simon Taylor who was compere for the evening, and your correspondent who had blagged a ticket as a ‘guest of’ someone who is altogether more important.

Obituary - Richard Burns

On the fourth anniversary of winning his WRC title, Richard Burns died. He was just 34. John Davenport pays tribute to a British rallying icon. I never had the chance to sit beside Richard Burns in a rally car. But I did watch the RAC Rally in 2000, when he collected his hat-trick on the event.

McCubbin My interest in "specials" was first aroused by reading of other people's efforts in Motor Sport and in 1938 I made my first attempt to produce such a car.
