I am speaking of Historic Formula Junior, in which one can - quite literally - race every weekend between April and October, and which has a pool of over 200 cars...

Muddy waters

Sports car racing begins the long haul back to respectability in 1993, based on the concept of homologated Grand Touring cars. National championships will take place in Britain, Germany, France, Italy, America and Japan, but nowhere will there be common regulations. Lacking any sort of lead from FISA, John Quenby (chief executive of the RAC Motor Sports Association) has taken the initiative in...

Kremer versus the Spice boys

GpC/GTP I Dijon I Sept 25-26 Tyre choice was the critical factor in the first race as the Group C/GTP season concluded at Dijon. A brave decision to take slicks despite light rain proved the right choice for Casper Elgaard (Kremer CK6 Porsche 962), but he had to wait until lap 19 before taking the lead on a drying track (below). Nigel James chose wets on his Spice SE86 and ran away at the start....
