Credit where it's overdue

Nino Vaccarella is remembered as a Targa Florio specialist, when in fact he won all the big events in sports car racing’s golden age By Michael Oliver We’d wager that Nino Vaccarella wouldn’t immediately spring to mind if you were asked to draw up a list of great sports car racers. A Targa Florio specialist surely, we hear you say, a one-trick pony. But consider this: Vaccarella is one of only...

51st Grand Prix de I'A.C.F.

Those Scots again Clermont Ferrand, France, June 27th.

This is a circuit constructed by the Automobile Club d'Auvergne in the hills near...

Surtees (Ferrari) Wins Again ADENAU, August 2nd. The German Grand Prix took place on the 22.81 kilometre Nurburgring, in the Eifel mountains and there were four separate practice sessions, two on Friday and two on Saturday, with sufficient time in between each day for fairly major jobs to be undertaken.

36th Italian Grand Prix

That Apprentice from Scotland Monza, Italy, September 12th With no major Grand Prix race since the German Grand Prix at the beginning of August, the factory teams had plenty of time to prepare themselves for the annual high-speed race at Monza, on the 5.75-kilometre road circuit. A very full entry was received and Lotus, Brabham, Ferrari and Centro-Sud fielded three-car teams, the Ferrari one...

Belgian Grand Prix

An Unsatisfactory Finish Spa, Belgium, June 14th. When practice began late on Friday afternoon the sun was still burning down on the wooded slopes of the Francorchamps circuit and, apart from the two works B.R.M.s of Hill and Ginther, there seemed to be a reluctance for anyone to start practice, or perhaps it was that they were not ready. Ginther had his regular car, but now with a new gearbox,...

The German Grand Prix

BRABHAM WORKS HARD Nurburgring, Germany, August 7th. THE Automobile Club von Deutschland, who organise the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, were rather afraid that they would not get enough Formula One cars to make up a good starting grid and to keep the 22.8-kilometre circuit occupied for 15 laps sufficiently to satisfy the spectators, so they invited eleven Formula Two entries. These...

Grand Prix of the United States

Hat-trick for Hill Watkins Glen, Sunday, October 3rd. The World Drivers' Championship for 1965 was clinched before the G.P. circus crossed the Atlantic, so the U.S. Grand Prix, held for the fifth year in succession at the Watkins Glen Circuit, was not surrounded with quite so much daily paper "ballyhoo" as usual. Autumn at the Glen was not so far advanced as in some previous years and the...

Enzo Ferrari's Magnificent Machines

A complex man, few were ever allowed much more than a glimpse into the inner persona of the enigmatic Enzo Ferrari. But to understand his character properly, it is rarely necessary to look further than the nosecone of one his cars, and essentially from behind the steering wheel.
