2014 Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort

Circuit Park Zandvoort’s third Historic Grand Prix event, on August 29-31, attracted a record 50,000 spectators and featured not only the cream of Europe’s racing championships but also competitors from as far afield as Australia, the USA and Dubai. Michael Lyons topped the scoring with three wins, a repeat of 2013’s FIA Masters Formula 1 result in the family Hesketh 308E and, splendidly, the...

Lunch with... Nigel Mansell

Love him or loathe him, there's no denying that 'Our Nige' is a true racer – and today he's still full of fighting talk. Nigel Mansell talks through his career over lunchBy Simon Taylor Surely no World Champion has provoked greater extremes of adulation and criticism than Nigel Mansell. From his earliest days in Formula 1 he was the darling of the British crowds: when he scored his first Grand...

Stateside, CART Championship review

The right stuff! Indycar racing witnessed a clear shift in its delicate balance of power in 1988, although its turbocharged formula continued to provide more competitive racing than Formula One could a new Penske chassis took over from March or Lola as the thing to have, while Ilmor's Chevrolet V8 finally ousted Cosworth's DFX as the dominant powerplant — a combination of circumstances which...

Preview: Goodwood Festival of Speed

Whether your taste is 1960s sportscars, Indy racers or today's F1 heroes, it's all at Lord March's party. Gordon Cruickshank looks ahead to June 24-26 There isn't a more colourful historic car gathering in the world than the Goodwood Festival of Speed, so it's appropriate that this year's theme is 'Racing colours — National Pride and Culture'. Expect to see quintessential machines spanning a...

That's entertainment?

And so the 77th running of the Indianapolis 500, the self-proclaimed 'Greatest Spectacle in Racing', is history. It was a remarkable race for any number of reasons, ranging from Emerson Fittitpaldi single-handedly slaying the Ford/Cosworth hordes to Nigel Mansell's splendid speedway baptism by fire and the astonishing facts that the top six cars were covered by six seconds at the finish, four...

At the risk of being branded a heretic, I'd like humbly to suggest that observers of IndyCar racing have been a tad harsh in criticising Championship Auto Racing Teams over the years. True, the restless team owners reversed their field once again last month in Indianapolis when they tossed out the five-vote/seven-man Board of Directors in favour of the "one-franchise/one-vote" Board system that...

Postcard from America: Leagues apart?

The great American divide continues. Who holds the upper hand The Indy Racing League opened its new Walt Disney World Speedway last month and, in early December, released an entry list for the inaugural IRL race at Disney World. Although the innovative new facility's track was positively received, the entry failed to meet even the most mediocre of expectations. The list featured a whopping 41...

The Brickyard comes to Goodwood

This year's Festival of Speed will celebrate the Indy 500 centenary in style, with roadsters, racers - and even its own yard of bricksBy Rob Widdows Can you believe we are approaching the 19th Goodwood Festival of Speed? No, neither can I. But we are. And yes, we always say this, but it looks like being another absolute treat. We are rapidly running out of superlatives to describe what some...

A BIT OF INDY MAGIC Gordon Kirby THE WEATHER WAS GLORIOUSLY HOT FOR THIS YEAR'S 100TH anniversary running of the Indianapolis 500. After days of rain and uncommonly cool, overcast skies, the sun and humidity burst forth on race day and what a race we had! Furiously fought all the way, it turned into a game of fuel strategy at the end. Scoff Dixon and Dario Franchiffi in Chip Ganassi's pair of...

The Speed Show

For 2 hours 41 minutes and 18. 248 seconds the 74th running of the Indianapolis 500 gave over 400,000 spectators the most glittering display of sustained speed that I have witnessed. Even amongst hardened Indy onlookers the 185.984 mph pace of Arie "Dutch Boy" Luyendyk was something special. For a European watching his first "500," and the first Common Market citizen beating the Americans since...
