National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Formula Two review

Tragedy and disorganisation at Rouen The annual Formula Two race at the impressive Rouen Les Essarts road circuit has always been a favourite. The track itself is fast and extremely challenging, the surroundings are extremely pleasant and the meeting has always had a relaxed air. This year it was rather different and a shadow was placed over the whole proceedings by the death in practice of the...

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...

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Nigel Roebuck's legends

It is 30 years since Niki Lauda's fiery crash left him hovering between life and death; 40 days later he raced again, and finished fourth in a grand prix. It was an extraordinary feat of determination and personal bravery Monza. The 2006 Italian Grand Prix is a few days away as I write, and 30 years have passed since the most remarkable happening I have ever encountered in motor racing. In the '...

Rally review

The cockpit of his E-Type Jaguar, the garden of a Routier between Sarthe and Milan, a restaurant table on a cross-Channel ferry and the transit lounge at Orly are all places where one can imagine D.S.J. having sat down to write his monthly "European Letter". We have all been compelled many times to begin writing in odd places, but the one in which I now find myself beginning these words must take...

Rolling thunder

F5000 stormed the early seventies and now it's ready to rumble once more. Bob Evans, the 1974 Champ, proves lighting can strike twice He had sounded keen on the phone. Jumped at it. Now he's not so sure. Can't say I blame him. Silverstone hardly rests easy on the eye even on the most glorious of days, and this morning has dawned slate grey, dank and dour. The Nissan Micra hire car he's driven...

In the hot seat

Bobby Rahal He won at Indy but had to turn down a Le Mans drive with Sauber. He doesn't care if he's underrated but does promise not to be another overprotective 'race car dad' Your father was a pretty useful driver. Did he pass on any tips when you started racing, and do you do the same for your son Graham? Chris Rees, Bracknell I don't know if my father passed on anything except the love of...

No sugar, no beer, no fizz

The Fittipaldi brothers lived the dream with their F1 team. But, they tell Marcus Simmons, when Copersucar and Skol pulled out it all turned flat A switch in management at Skol beer 25 years ago had the biggest effect on the destiny of the 1982 Formula One World Championship. Eh? Come on, that's got you! Want an explanation? Okay— read on. Consider this: in 1980 there was a neat little F1 team....
