MARRIAGE COUNSEL

The 1994 IndyCar season may look healthy on the surface, but beneath the 30-car grids lies a political minefield that requires urgent sweeping No matter how you cut it, it's a long way from the United States to Surfers Paradise. In my case, exactly 28 hours elapsed from the time my first flight pulled back from the loading gate until my last flight touched down at Coolangatta Airport. Thanks to...

Board games

Nigel Mansell's victory at Nazareth Speedway having turned the IndyCar finale at Laguna Seca into something of an anti-climax, it was only natural for the talk on the Monterey Peninsula to centre on Bill Stokkan's successor as CART chairman. Little more than a month earlier, Stokkan caught everyone off guard by announcing he would not seek to renew his contract beyond the expiration of his...

The other life of Brian

Brian Redman's Formula One record is poor compared to his sparkling sportscar career, yet he preferred to race single-seaters — and had plenty of success in them, too. So exactly why did he turn down Ferrari, asks Tim Scott? As a sportscar driver, on his day Brian Redman was a match for the very best: Ickx, Siffert or Rodriguez. But there is an incongruity in his CV. At a time when top drivers...

Jackie Stewart talks to Alan Henry

The big interview Things Alan learned when he sat down with Sir Jackie at the Australian GP: that Cevert would have won the '74 title; that Button is the new Amon; and a masterclass in racing psychology It's now 33 years since Jackie Stewart embarked on his final season as a Formula One driver.

Is America ready for touring cars?

There is widespread agreement that FIA Super Touring sedans will be racing in the United States in 1996. The creation of the North American Touring Car Campionship, at the behest of Gerald Forsythe, Roger Elliott and Alan Gow, has seen to that. The question is, will Championship Auto Racing Teams sanction the NATCC? More significantly, the manner in which that question is decided will speak...

Winning

The Racing Life of Paul NewmanMatt Stone and Preston Lerner There are so many quotes from famous names in this book that describe Paul Newman, the racing driver. But my favourite comes from race engineer Mark Schomann: “Now that he’s gone, I realise I always thought of him as Paul Newman the race car driver, who pretended he was an actor… He was a race car guy who wanted to drink a beer and have...

Lola's Formula One heritage

1974: Graham Hill commissions the T370 for his fledgling Embassy-backed team. Looking very F5000, this proves a disappointment. It collects just a single constructors' championship point when Hill finishes a lapped sixth in the Swedish GP at Anderstorp. This occasion also provides his team-mate Guy Edwards with his best result of the year, seventh. 1975: Hill and Rolf Stornmelen begin the year...

For some years now we have had Grand Prix races in Canada and the United States and they have been arranged to take place on consecutive weekends, sometimes the United States being first, sometimes...

Brave new world

Be careful what you wish for," goes the saying, "because your wish might come true." Never have truer words been spoken when it comes to IndyCar racing. For more than a decade the PPG IndyCar World Series was one of auto racing's best kept secrets. The competition was close and spectacular, the drivers were skilled and accessible; and the politics, though byzantine and often bitter, seldom had an...
