Louisa Skipper's Diary

Bat and ball fun at the revival The Goodwood Revival ball has become a social highlight of the motor racing season, and this year it more than lived up to its star-studded reputation. A Spanish ‘Seville’ theme allowed over 1000 guests from the motor sport world to explore their inner matadors and flamenco dancers – and I was lucky enough to be among them, as a guest of Maserati.

The F-philes

Anyone will tell you that ferrari is special some are more qualified than others to comment Stirling Moss A difficult bastard, for whom I have great respect.

He has contributed as much to our sport as any man; may the name live and be admired forever. Ken Tyrrell Ferrari is Red;...

Pure class

The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year.

Charity begins at Lords, with hope for tomorrow

To Sir Stirling Moss’s charity dinner at Lord’s, where the only journos in the room were our own Simon Taylor who was compere for the evening, and your correspondent who had blagged a ticket as a ‘guest of’ someone who is altogether more important. Thanks to this obviously significant other, I found myself on the top table with, among others, Martin and Liz Brundle, Sir Stirling and Lady Susie...

Thruxton Silver Jubilee

Mention Easter Monday to a motor racing fan, and the chances are he'll think of Thruxton. For years, the BARC organised Formula 2 racing on that bank holiday which brought the top and soon-to-be-top international drivers to the Hampshire circuit; Stewart, Peterson, Hill, Lauda, Reutemann, Lafitte, and, memorably, Jochen Rindt, winner of the International event in each of the first three years....

Ferari 250 Testa Rossa recreation
