Race of Champions

An enjoyable event Brands Hatch, April 10th  It would have been difficult to find a weekend more unsuitable for staging a non-championship Formula One race than April 9th/10th, for in the International calendar were the 1,000 kilometre race at Monza for Group C cars, the European Touring Car Championship round at Vallelunga, the Formula 2 round at Hockenheimring, a big meeting at Donington Park,...

The worst car I ever drove

Alas poor Warwick Derek Warwick: Toleman TG181 Derek Warwick has driven a lot of terrible cars in his time but, of them all, it was the car which launched his career in Formula One which he now remembers as the worst of a very bad bunch My worst car? To be honest there's a bloody long queue of them. In there would certainly be the March 792 -- a diabolical car -- the Renault RE60 from '85, the...

Notes on the Cars at Jarama

With the Spanish GP opening the season for Formula One Championship races in Europe there was a lot of pre-race testing going on at the little Jarama circuit and some of it was useful for the race itself and some was purely experimental. Since Porsche revealed last year that they had been racing cars with solid rear axles, that is with no differential unit, relying on the distortion in the tyres...

Reflections in the Transvaal

When I left England the trains were not running because the drivers had gone on strike; when I went into the Kyalami circuit on the first day of practice the Formula tears were not running because the drivers had gone on strike. In both cases the reasons were vague and varied and in both cases the disruption did nobody any good at all. In my book strikes are anti-social and from the first one I...

Formula Two Review

Formula Two Review JUST AS Hanschen Stuck dominated the two opening rounds of the European Formula Two Championship last season, Frenchman Jacques Laffite has emerged as the early season pacesetter this year. The 31-year-old Parisian had a rather lucky win in the opening race at Portugal's Estoril Autodrome on March 9th but was consistently the fastest throughout the BARC-organised Easter Monday...

Track test -- Unipart March 783 Dolomite

Something different in Formula Three Formula Three in whatever guise has a good pedigree for producing the next generation of Grand Prix drivers. Occasionally the top Formula Three man will go straight from what is now a 2-litre category into Formula One, the latest example being the career of Nelson Piquet, who dominated the British championship scene before making his debut with the Brabham GP...

Formula 2 review

First year Formula Two driver— "Rookie" the Americans would call him — Thierry Boutsen took the lead of the European Formula Two Championship with a fine win in the eighth round of the series at Enna, Sicily on July 26. With the following round of the closely contested championship on his home soil at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium and with just four more rounds in all, over which to defend his...

Lunch with... Adrian Reynard

Innovator, improviser, impecunious... The founder of a famous British racing institution has been all three, but right now he's flying high once again By Simon Taylor Motor racing is dangerous: it's a truism that doesn't need repeating. And motor racing can be dangerous commercially, too. On the balance sheet as well as on the track, risk can reap huge rewards but can also result in huge crashes...
