Lunch with... Jacky Ickx

He may be his own man, but Ickx doesn’t like discussing his own achievements, preferring instead to acknowledge the efforts of those around him. But all those Le Mans wins, those Grand Prix heroics in the wet – they can’t be ignored Each month for the past five years it’s been my privilege, on your behalf, to take a motor racing name to lunch. Then, on these pages, I’ve passed on to you the...

Hill's Hungary heart

There are some weekends when fate can smile on you and others when she will point her fickle finger in your direction and nearly poke your eye out. Whenever Damon Hill bent over in Hungary, you had to reach for the sun glasses... Michael Schumacher has criticised his championship rival for being 'moody' and there have been times when Hill's tendency to introspection has perhaps made him his own...

Gordon Kirby – The US Scene

Driven to race far from home Phil Hill’s passing near the end of the summer got me thinking about the great era of motor racing that his career straddled, and the large role played in the sport in those days by American drivers, cars and teams. Through the 1950s and ’60s, Phil was a true pioneer of American road racing. Before earning a seat with Ferrari’s factory sports car team, he set the...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

On the Can-Am trail While in North America last month for the Canadian and US Grands Prix I was lucky enough to have a week in between the two World Championship races to spend my time as profitably as possible. Looking through the American calendar I realised I had the choice of the USAC race at Trenton, New Jersey, or the Can-Am race at Edmonton way over in Western Canada. It was a hard...

Lola success continues in Huntingdon

Things happen quickly, quietly and efficiently at Lola Cars, and since the firm's move from the Slough to the Huntingdon Trading Estate just over a year ago, Eric Broadley and his team have achieved a good deal, and further enhanced their already strongly established reputation. Yet Lola do not court publicity to any extent, they prefer to let success and the customer service they offer speak for...

Have a "full-on thrash!"

With a brilliant Revival race as his inspiration, that’s what our man was told to do with two Can-Am greats – Lola’s T70 Spyder and McLaren’s M1BBy Andrew Frankel Did you see the Whitsun Trophy at last year’s Goodwood Revival? If not, and in the scope of what’s relevant to this story, you missed two things. One was one of the best Revival races ever, two was all the explanation you needed as to...

March chair

Three hours into the job it's a trifle premature to pass judgment on Andrew Craig, CART's next president and chief operating officer. Still, you only get one chance to make a first impression. And by all accounts Craig, who is leaving his post as executive vice president and deputy chief executive officer with International Sports and Leisure (ISL), made some good ones with the motor sports press...

Jochen Rindt Memorial Race

A Sunday afternoon drive for Ickx Hockenheim-Ring, Germany, June 13th With the ban on the Belgian Grand Prix by the CSI the Formula One world was faced with three clear weekends between Monte Carlo and the next event, due at Zandvoort. For some who were repairing the ravages of Monte Carlo this was a good thing, while others were taking the opportunity to enlarge their stock of 1971 material and...

Full credit available

At the risk of being branded a heretic, I'd like humbly to suggest that observers of IndyCar racing have been a tad harsh in criticising Championship Auto Racing Teams over the years. True, the restless team owners reversed their field once again last month in Indianapolis when they tossed out the five-vote/seven-man Board of Directors in favour of the "one-franchise/one-vote" Board system that...

(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...
