Formula 2 review: end of an era

A series of four races held in Brazil and Argentina during November brought to an end the 1,600-c.c. Formula Two which had been in effect from the start of 1967. These events, two at Sao Paulo's Interlagos track and one each at Porto Alegre and Cordoba (Argentina's single race) marked a dramatic turn in the fortunes of European Trophy victor Ronnie Peterson and March generally for they failed to...

Race of champions and surprises

Brands Hatch, March 18th. BRANDS HATCH'S Race of Champions has, for several years, started the European Formula One season but anyone looking for a pointer for the year from the results of the 1973 race can forget it—unless the lesson learned is that Formula One cars are going to be more unreliable than ever before. It turned out to be a quite extraordinary race during which the lead changed five...

Fathers, sons and brothers

- is the younger always the better?

Keen judgement, quick reflexes, above average eyesight and co-ordination, balance and competitive spirit are necessary for a successful participation, whether...

Argentine Grand Prix

Lotus win a classic race BUENOS AIRES January 28th. THE 1973 Grand Prix racing season opened, despite all the recent squabbling, with a classic contest at Buenos Aires Municipal Autodrome in late January. It was the kind of battle packed with intrigue and excitement, which surely made every one of the 100,000 plus spectators resolve to come again next year. Isn't that what motoring racing is all...

Race of Champions

Hollow victory for Hunt Brands Hatch, March 20th. Due to the magnanimous and benevolent attitude of the Formula One Constructors Association the annual Race of Champions at Brands Hatch was able to take place as a Formula One event. The Formula One "eminence" has decreed that the hard-worked and busy members of the Association cannot spare the time to take part in more than one non-World...

Mark Braddel

Mark’s day job is in films, but as he was born in earshot of Brands Hatch, racing was bound to get him. An early memory is of waiting at Pilgrim’s Drop for his hero Carlos Pace’s Brabham to appear. It was DSJ’s writings which interested him in race circuits, and he wrote to Jenks on the subject. He still treasures the handwritten reply suggesting tracks to visit, and he’s been at it ever since.

1974 British Grand Prix - Scheckter finishes first

  Brands Hatch, July 20th: Britain's World Championship qualifying round arrived at Brands Hatch for its 1974 edition, the bumpy and undulating Kent circuit being just about as far removed from Silverstone's wide open spaces as it is possible to get.   The one common factor which this year's race shared with the 1973 Grand Prix was major sponsorship from the John Player tobacco conglomerate, and...

Lunch with... John Watson

‘Wattie’ was always quick on track, but he was no politician off it, which could be why he didn’t enjoy more success in F1 – and why he remains Britain’s most underrated GP driver By Simon Taylor Here’s a man who was Britain’s top Formula 1 driver for six consecutive seasons. A man who scored two of the greatest from-back-to-front victories in F1 history, and in his best year came oh-so-close to...
