Feast of endurance

You were there

This is the latest chapter in our series for photographs taken by you. This month we take a look at Trenton Speedway, The Tasman Cup, Silverstone, Mallory Park and a Bo'Ness hillclimb. It is not often that we are sent photos of the Indycar scene of the early 1960s so when these shots from Trenton Speedway in 1961 dropped on our desks we pounced on them Charles J Bough's candid portraits of the...

Formula 1’s first American venture featured a three-way title fight that ended in unconventional fashion Writer Simon Arron, Illustrator Guy Allen America had maintained a token presence on the F1 championship calendar from day one, thanks to the inclusion of the scarcely relevant Indianapolis 500, but this was the first time the nation...

Some young drivers have an open cheque book, others an open mind. Simon Arron speaks to one of the latter You wait decades for a promising young driver to come along, and then… More than 40 years since New Zealand’s golden age, when Chris Amon, Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme raced with distinction on the world stage, precious few Kiwis have made the grade.

Obituaries

Jonathan Williams A prolific F3 and F2 competitor during the 1960s, this Cairo-born Englishman has passed away aged 71. Although he scored a number of significant victories in junior categories, his world championship F1 career was restricted to a single race, standing in for injured Ferrari driver Mike Parkes in the 1967 Mexican GP.

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history.

Notes on the Cars at Zolder and Imola

With the Belgian GP and the San Marino GP on successive weekends (April 29th and May 6th) there was precious little time for anyone to return to base between the races so most of the teams set off for Belgium with sufficient equipment for the two weeks.
