Letters

What would Jenks say? Sir, Since I was old enough to stand I have been a Ferrari fan and never a fan of McLaren. While I am a tifoso, I feel that after the arrival of Schumacher, Brawn etc, the entire ethos of that team changed, to the detriment of Grand Prix racing and to motor sport in general. In contrast I like Ron Dennis’ candid approach and believe that fairness is at the heart of the team’...

FORD 83C TO RACE!

FORD 83C TO RACE! The stillborn Ford 83C sports-racer is set to return to the tracks in 2005 following a protracted 10-year rebuild. If current plans are realised, the car should be tested in the spring by touring car and former works Aston and Jaguar Group C driver David Leslie: it could then be in battle before the end of the year in a Group C/GTP race. The 83C was the successor to the C100 and...

Ginetta G4

Few sports cars that emerged from the 1950s specials boom have had the lasting appeal of the achingly pretty road-legal racer from Essex By Richard Heseltine / Photography by Howard Simmons What it lacked in accuracy it more than made up for in repeat usage: “All roads lead to Witham,” declared Ginetta’s promotional spiel for year after year. Not unless you pluralise the B1389, they don’t. This...

Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport. One raced his own marque of Formula 1 car, then spent 35 years as a top team manager in endurance...

Simon Taylor's notebook

HSCC Roadsports is one way you can go historic racing without a millionaire's budget, or a trailer The generally accepted wisdom is that if you go motor racing it will cost you, and if you go motor racing in an old car it will cost you a lot. At the major historic meetings, priceless cars arrive in huge transporters operated by hired hands who maintain and mend. The owner just turns up to drive,...

Around and About

As young as you feel!

Ginetta G4

One of few cars eligible for both contemporary and classic racing, the little G4 has been a useful track tool for almost half a century By Richard Heseltine There is something vaguely heroic about the Ginetta G4’s reluctance to play dead. It just keeps on coming back, strutting its not inconsiderable stuff. This shapely tiddler was conceived in the 1950s, arrived in the early ’60s and never...
