Matra team repeats the dose in North America

Watkins Glen, July 21st. A medical man would describe the Ferrari sportscar team's health as "as well as can be expected", with one round to go in the 1973 World Championship for Makes. At Watkins Glen late in July two Matras and three Ferraris fought out the 6-Hour Race on the Grand Prix circuit and the event ran true to current form: Cevert claimed pole position, was delayed early in the race...

Lunch with... Chris Amon

He didn’t achieve the results that his enormous talent merited, but no matter: F1’s ‘unluckiest driver’ is just glad to have lived to tell the taleBy Simon Taylor Today’s media like to give our heroes convenient labels. Stirling Moss is “the greatest driver never to win the World Championship” – a glib line which says nothing about The Boy’s unrivalled versatility, or his racer’s heart. In the...

German Grand Prix

A Tyrrell Demonstration Nurburgring, Germany, August 5th With practice for the German Grand Prix on the Nurburgring starting only five days after the unhappy Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort there was a general air of unreadiness on Friday lunch time. It was only a feeling, for in fact all the teams present were in pretty good condition considering the shortage of time for preparation. Those teams...

'A Diversion'

It all started when the Dutch held their Grand Prix on a Saturday instead of the normal Continental race day of Sunday, for this gave me an extra day in my normal week of getting from one race to the next. Normally I never do any serious motoring at weekends, always being involved with races, so it was quite a surprise to find the roads of Europe empty of lorries and vans, and being away from the...

The Dijon 1000 Kms

A Matra victory Dijon-Prenois, France, April 15th. With the cancellation of the BOAC 1000 at Brands Hatch the Automobile Club of Bourgogne were quick to take up the date and organise a 1,000-kilometre race on their new Autodrome north-west of the town of Dijon. This new circuit is carved out of virgin land in undulating countryside and is roughly rectangular, with a straight of 1,100 metres, on...

Formula Two Review

1969 Analysis With the Formula Two season drawing to a close and this month's only Formula Two race, at Zandvoort, cancelled, it seems appropriate to take a look at the future of the second Formula and to glance back briefly at the season thus far. Unless the Italian authorities reverse an already announced decision, the race at Enna which takes place after we have gone to press (on August 24th)...

The Austrian Grand Prix - The best laid plans go wrong

Osterreichring, Zeltweg, Aug 19th. If anyone has doubts about the popularity of Grand Prix racing they should visit the Austrian Grand Prix, for even though the Osterreichring has only had three Grand Prix races there, it has built up a far-reaching reputation. No-one will ever forget the 1970 event when Ferrari finished first and second, and BRM enthusiasts will not forget 1971 when Siffert led...

Rumblings

Renault—that outstanding French make. When the Editor came to write about the cars he drove last year he was somewhat perturbed to find that 1970 went by without a Renault being reported on—perturbed because he has a considerable respect for this great French make, which is making notable, one might say visible, sales inroads on the British market. In previous years we have reported on the...

The 43rd Italian Grand Prix

Deadly dull for Monza Monza, Italy, September 10th. As reported last month in Continental Notes the Monza circuit was slowed down by the introduction of two chicanes so that when the teams began testing and practising for the 43rd Italian Grand Prix there was quite a lot to learn. The wide track in front of the pits was divided in two by a line of rubber cones which kept the cars in the right-...
