Rome Grand Prix (May 19th)

Vallelunga Autodrome—Two Heats The little Vallelunga Autodrome just north of Rome has recently been lengthened to 3.2 kilometres to the lap, but still remains very much an enclosed stadium, and here a Formula One race was held in two Heats with the addition of the results forming the general classification. It was essentially an event for private owners and gave Bob Anderson a good opportunity...

The man who played with fire

Hockenheim brought the spectre of fire back to Grand Prix racing. In his first interview for almost two decades, former BRM chief Louis Stanley, who pioneered means of eliminating such risk, recalls the days when safety was a dirty word In his heyday on the Grand Prix circuits Louis T Stanley cut an imposing figure. Tall and corpulent, ruddy of face and silver of hair, his blue blazer and old...

Lotus 20/22

With Formula Junior regaining popularity, now’s the time to invest in one of Colin Chapman’s creations. Which type will you go for?By Richard Heseltine It always was a catchy title. Fifty years young, Formula Junior is undergoing something of a renaissance, an under-the-radar second – or possibly third – coming with packed grids attracting newbies and old hands alike to entry-level historic...

Penske Racing's car-building offshoot in Poole may be run on deadly efficient lines, but the man in charge is also one of the great motor sport enthusiasts It has been said of Nick Goozée that you can see all four seasons in a day on his face, but the fact that he's the one saying it tells you a lot about the man. "I guess I am lucky, because I probably struck right at the period of time. If you...

XXIII Pau Grand Prix: A Team Lotus demonstration

Pau, France, April 15th With Easter being rather early the traditional Pau Grand Prix, held on Easter Monday, suffered from many possible entries not being ready, neither Ferrari nor A.T.S. being sufficiently advanced with their new cars to take part in the 100-lap "round-the-houses" race. Fifteen drivers were assembled for the first practice, which took place on Saturday afternoon, but only...

At 200mph, you and I would be transfixed, white-knuckling the steering wheel, holding our breath, fearing to blink lest we missed some vital visual clue. But for Michele Alboreto, travelling at such velocities was almost an everyday experience. His shoulders and arms would've been relaxed, his eyes flicking down into the cockpit taking in readouts, his mind filing away information to be passed on...

100 things that made F1 great

As Formula One fights to restore its credibility and rediscover its core values, we take a (not always) light-hearted look over the stuff that we miss most from the (not always) 'good old days' of F1. Some of our selections are fundamental, some may seem frivolous, but all of them are heartfelt and so, in no particular order... Monza without chicanes It was crazy and more than a little dangerous...

In the heat of the moment

When Phil Hill's Cooper crashed and burnt to a crisp in the 1964 Austrian Grand Prix, Peter Miller was on the spot with his camera, helping hand and words of warning The 1964 Austrian Grand Prix, seventh of 10 rounds counting for the championship, was held on the makeshift airfield circuit of Zeltweg.

The Grand Prix scene

Now that the dust has settled after two World Championship Grand Prix races and five non-championship Formula One races (this is being written and printed just before the Monaco GP), it might be as well to take stock of the situation. The remarkable thing about 1971 so far is that we have had five Formula One events not part of the World Championship series, and these have allowed new drivers to...

Bob Anderson

It is with regret and sadness that we have to record the death of 30-year-old Bob Anderson, who died as a result of a crash while carrying out some testing at Silverstone on August 14th. Anderson was one of the few men who was courageous enough to sink everything he had into a Formula One car and who had the ability to prepare and maintain it himself so that he could go Grand Prix racing. Coming...
