Mass and lckx Win Economy Run

Early last year there was a terrible shemozzle in the sports car world when FISA decided at short notice to "do a deal" with the American IMSA organisation. They scrapped the proposed fuel economy rules for a start, requiring a 15% reduction in the amount available for a 1,000 kilometre event, to 510 litres, and the works Porsche team was so upset that it withdrew its cars from Le Mans. All that...

Maserati 4CM

No.1128 In the January issue of Motor Sport, in an article about the 1939 British Empire Trophy race held at Donington Park, I mentioned an 1100 c.c. Maserati that was driven by Charlie Dodson and was running in second place until it retired.

Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year.

World Championship for Makes and World Championship for Sports Cars The story so far . . .

The story so far . . . When the Group 5 circus of so-called "Special Production Cars" comes to Brands Hatch on the 24th and 25th of September for the seventh round of the World Championship for Makes, the once fiercely contested title will have already been long decided in Porsche's favour.

European Touring Car Championship, round one

Brands Hatch, March 18th. The opening round of the European Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch on March 19th proved one thing at least. Even though the series had diminished in stature since the demise of the works Jaguars, a Group a race could still produce a very exciting finish, even when it was in effect only a two-car race. From the beginning of practice it was obvious that the only...
