Reluctant hero

He pulled Niki Lauda from the wreckage of his blazing Ferrari, fought in Vietnam and now pilots humanitarian flights for seriously ill children, but Brett Lunger plays down his many achievements… Writer Andrew Marriott Brett Lunger has always been understated, self-analytical, supremely fit and serious. That was his manner back in the 1970s when I handled his public relations in Europe and now,...

Matters of moment

Following our revealing interview with FIA president Jean Todt last month, you may recall that we posted a copy of our ‘Formula 1 manifesto for change’, printed in our April issue, to Luca di Montezemolo. The Ferrari chairman has taken it upon himself to cajole the major players to discuss the future of Grand Prix racing, and we couldn’t resist giving him a nudge towards our ideas to shake up the...

City slickers

Street racing in Britain has been to Motorsport what Holland has been to Downhill skiing, but the vision of one man gave it a foothold. Had it received a vital leg-up at the right time, it might still be with us. David Malsher recalls the rise and of fall of Birmingham's Superprix For those living outside Birmingham, the Superprix erupted out of nowhere. Even readers of the specialist Motorsport...

The Porsche 928

A Car for the Eighties Even under the accumulated mud of a couple of thousand miles spent in a round-Britain pursuit of the RAC Rally the Porsche 928 is a striking car, its bullet shape, futuristic wheels and vacuum-operated headlights pointing naked to the sky often attracting more enthusiastic gapers than the cream of the world's rally cars whenever our manual gearbox test car was parked nearby...

Brian Henton

At thirty-six-years old, Brian Henton can probably best be described as one of international motor racing's eternal optimists. Over the past 12 years he has won championships in Formula Vee, Super Vee, F3 and F2, but always seems to have been thwarted in his efforts to establish himself in Formula One. Last year, as Michele Alboreto's partner in the Tyrrell line-up, he demonstrated a solid...

Eric Dymock Eric’s oeuvre of motoring and racing books and his long career writing in newspapers and magazines on the subject might lead you to think he had a narrow world view. In fact he’s equally hot on World War II and Gilbert and Sullivan, though the story he has uncovered about the sad fate of Ecurie Ecosse founder David Murray is a very long way from light opera. Franca Davenport Daughter...

Performance road test: Broadspeed Bullit

As we commented in a brief paragraph devoted to the Racing Car Show recently, the converted Capri appears to be the modified car for 1971. At the Show both BVRT and Broadspeed displayed sophisticated versions of the 3-litre, though the manner in which they were decorated may have put off the very people who could afford these 120-plus m.p.h. machines. We were unable to borrow the BVRT car, the...

FORMULA ONE AT WATKINS GLEN 20 YEARS OF THE UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX 1961-1980 Michael Argetsinger Editor-in-chief Nigel Roebuck has always had a soft spot for Watkins Glen. "For me," he wrote in the December 2010 issue of Motor Sport "it had a magical quality, and if ever Formula 1 had a spiritual home in the USA, this was surely it." was Nigel also talked a few months earlier about how Fl had...

Vettel shows mettle Sir, How enjoyable for me to have got home from work and find the newly-crowned Formula 1 World Champion to be Sebastian Vettel. The way practice had panned out I fully expected Fernando Alonso to have taken the title and for it to have then be tainted by the antics of the Ferrari team at Hockenheim. Vettel has proved to be the fastest in what has sometimes been a fragile...

Indy GP

I thoroughly enjoyed Andrew Marriott's article on the Indianapolis 500 (MOTOR SPORT, August 1987), as well as AH's From the Archives on the various past locations of the US Grand Prix. In the Detroit Grand Prix report, AH mentioned that many of the Formula One drivers were dissatisfied with the Detroit street circuit — Prost having remarked that there were plenty of better tracks in the US on...
