The British Racing Partnership

The British Racing Partnership lasted just six seasons in Formula One before falling victim to its own success. Yet, as Robert Edwards reports, its legacy changed the face of the sport for ever When Alfred Moss and Ken Gregory chose Tony Robinson as the chief mechanic of their new enterprise, the grandly-named British Racing Partnership, thus neatly depriving Bruce Halford of the best mechanic he...

Memorable moments at Spa and Monza European classics were always held in awe For one brief period every year Grand Prix racing goes back to its roots: at the end of August we are at Spa, and then we go to Monza, and if you have any feel for the meaning of motor racing, this fortnight is emphatically the highlight of your season. If Spa, by general consent, is the greatest circuit visited by...

Clark and Lotus define an era of brilliant innovation and driving skill. But it is also a deadly decade, prompting Stewart to begin his safety crusadeBy Eoin Young Formula 1 changed forever during the 1960s, as did the world. Front engines were finally phased out. Enzo Ferrari finished with his heroic front-engined cars at the end of the 1960 season – and immediately snatched the world title in ’...

Ifs Motor Sport readers' favourite circuit and ifs Frankers too THE POLL ON THE MOTOR SPORT WEBSITE TO discover your favourite Grand Prix circuit of all time brings back memories of two trips I did around Europe for the magazine at the end of the last century.

Brands Hatch International Meeting (August 30th)

A warm sunny day, a large crowd and some of the world's leading drivers combined to make this the finest day of racing ever seen at Brands Hatch. As expected, after the phenomenal amount of practice he had done, Stirling Moss won the Kentish "100" Trophy for Formula II cars, but he had to fight very hard to do so, overcoming some very stout resistance from Jack Brabham and Stuart Lewis-Evans....

Mono shock

As the likes of Hill and Clark fell by the wayside, Innes Ireland splashed through the puddles for he BRP-BRM's only win. By Gordon Cruickshank A huge budget, the best car and a star driver - a team manager's nirvana. And that's pretty much what Ken Gregory had in the early years of the British Racing Partnership. A budget of £40,000 to spend on Formula One Coopers and £20,000 to run the team...

Moss at 80 – For for my next track...

In my era we raced more than one type of car in more than one championship – and sometimes on the same day! It was a lot different from the challenge that today’s Grand Prix drivers face. In my new book Stirling Moss: All My Races, written with the help of my good friend Alan Henry, I recount every race from my professional career between 1948-62. This extract, from a month in 1959, shows the...

The Unforgettable Harry Schell

Or so he should have been. Robert Edwards looks at his rarely remembered life and concludes there is no justice in this world. It is purely an age thing, I suppose, this, peculiar tendency we have to forget whole swathes of people who did their stuff before a certain age. An atrophied sense of history. At the age of twelve, in 1968, I can remember exactly what I was buying when my friend Michael...

Consumed by ambition

Despite his supreme talent, those around him always feared the young Ricardo Rodríguez might fall foul of a ferocious drive to win - and not just his ownBy Nigel Roebuck 'For sure he would have been World Champion…’ Down the years column inches without number have been given over to young racing drivers who appeared to have it all, yet perished before their potential could be realised, leaving...

Brief encounter

Jack Lewis shot to F1 in no time, but his star shone only momentarily as he and racing parted company By Paul Fearnley There are racing drivers who do not look like racing drivers – for example, Bobby Rahal, bless his fireproof socks – and there are those who do. I cannot cite a single scientific fact to support my bold statement, but I can cite Carlos Reutemann. If the craggy Argentinian –...
