National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Kyalami 1,000 Kms

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

TUNING TEST VW-Brabham's Lighter Formula 3

TUNING TEST VW-Brabham's Lighter Formula 3 JOHN JUDD, business associate of Sir Jack Brabham since 1966 and whose Rugby-based Cosworth DFV Formula I engine building activities were the subject of a MOTOR SPORT profile in 1978, enjoyed August 1982 heartily.

No sugar, no beer, no fizz

The Fittipaldi brothers lived the dream with their F1 team. But, they tell Marcus Simmons, when Copersucar and Skol pulled out it all turned flat A switch in management at Skol beer 25 years ago had the biggest effect on the destiny of the 1982 Formula One World Championship. Eh? Come on, that's got you! Want an explanation? Okay— read on. Consider this: in 1980 there was a neat little F1 team....

The German Grand Prix

A popular win Hockenheimring, August 8th THE great concrete stadium that forms the major part of the Hockenheimring is not the most pleasant place even when the sun is shining so when the skies are grey, and threatening rain, it is truly forbidding. The only spark of imagination in the place as far as the drivers were concerned was the very fast Ost – Kurve at the far end of the circuit, which...

Notes on the cars in Brazil

The results of the six months testing and development carried out by the teams since the last race of 1982, was clearly seen in the Brazilian paddock, with new designs, revamped cars, engine installations, new colours, new names, new sponsors and an on. Not for a long time has a new season started with so much interest, occasioned partly by the new FISA rules banning under-car aerodynamics within...

Formula II Review

THE YEAR 1980 ushered in a new era of professionalism on the European Formula Two scene. Seasoned observers compared it to Grand Prix racing in the late sixties/early seventies, before the whirlwind of commercialism that changed the face of the sport's major echelon almost beyond recognition. The customer car market shrank as a myriad of new chassis designs appeared and the three most powerful...

The Constructors —3

Van Diemen There is an old chestnut about a young man being interviewed for a job at Ford. "Tell me, what do you think we make here?" he was asked. "That's easy, sir," the interviewee replied, "you make cars." "Wrong!" he was told: "We make money and we make money by making cars." Much the same could be said of the Snetterton firm, Van Diemen International Racing Services Ltd. Its founder, Ralph...

(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...
