XX Grand Prix of Monaco

A race of decimation Monte Carlo, June 3rd. Due to a shuffling of the calendar this year the Monaco G.P. was not the first Grande Epreuve, the Dutch G.P. already having been held, so that everyone arrived in the Principality ready to do battle, this year's form having been indicated at Zandvoort, where B.R.M. ran away with the race. Once again the entry of 16 cars for the Monaco race was decided...

The B.R.D.C. Silverstone International Trophy Meeting

Silverstone, May 2nd. The B.R.D.C.'s "Festival of Speed" has become an important fixture for many British spectators, who enjoy a full day's programme for modest admission charges. This year over 100,000 flocked to Silverstone, not, as on the Continent, in carefree fashion to drink in the sun at outdoor tables as the racing cars were driven through colourful streets, but in pouring rain to a...

Go low, aim high

The Lotus 18 forced Cooper to raise its game by building the 'Lowline'. Tiff Needell tries both and reports back to Damien Smith. Photography by Malcolm Griffiths/LAT  Complacency: a strong word when aimed at brittle motor racing people.  But... "Why change it when we're winnin'?"  Sounds complacent, doesn't it?  Well, at the dawn of the 1960s John and Charles Cooper have every right to feel...

The Dutch Grand Prix

A technical step forward Zandvoort, Holland, June 21st After a certain amount of alarm and despondency the Dutch organisers managed to raise the finance necessary to organise their Grand Prix, and, in fact, they did better than expected in that they could afford to take 20 starters according to the Geneva agreement of the Formula One constructors. They had 27 entries inscribed on their list, of...

XXI Belgian Grand Prix

A fine win for Lotus Spa, Belgium, June 17th. The wonderful 14.1-kilometre circuit that runs between Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot, in the hills near Spa, needs little introduction to followers of Grand Prix racing, and this year everyone was looking forward to the Belgian G.P. with keen anticipation as it was to be the first time that the new British Grand Prix V8 engines could be wound up...

Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans, 1955

The Best Becomes the Worst Le Mans (Sarthe), June 12th The Le Mans 24-hour race gave promise of being a gigantic battle this year, and on the Tuesday and Wednesday before the race the cars were presented for scrutineering.

(No) Lunch with... Keke Rosberg

The 1982 Word Champion puts his success down to hard work rather than talent, but there's been plenty of that in evidence too By Simon Taylor According to Keke Rosberg, getting to the top in Formula 1 requires one of two things: “A lot of talent, or a lot of hard work. Nelson Piquet, for example, never wanted to work very hard, but he did have a great talent. Ayrton Senna was special, because for...

BMW in Formula 1

Piques & troughs BMW is quitting F1, its title ambitions in tatters. The same thing could have happened in the 1980s, but for an inspired Nelson Piquet and the stunning Brabham BT52 By Mike Doodson If you ask me, the blokes on the board at BMW lost their nerve. “We communicated our 2009 target four years ago,” said Mario Theissen in Valencia at the roll-out of this year’s car, barely seven...
