USAC Silverstone

A.J. Foyt (above) might well be smiling: he had just won 33,445 dollars for covering 38 laps of Silverstone to win the first of the british USAC rounds. The Sunday race was curtailed at 38 laps by rain after being rained off on the Saturday. Foyt's Coyote-Foyt (above left) uses a turbocharged development of the Ford V8 engine with which Clark and Hill won at Indianapolis. Pit stops are a feature...

Karlskoga Races (Sweden)

(August 11th)—Two heats of 20 laps each On the tight little circuit at Karlskoga, a Formula One race was run in two heats, the addition of times deciding the winner. Brabham led the first heat from Clark and Taylor with Lotus-Climax V8 cars, but trouble in the Brabham-Climax V8 just before the end allowed the two Team Lotus cars to finish first and second. In the second heat Clark and Taylor let...

Grand Prix Practice

Could it be improved? Without delving into the archives or pouring over history books I could not say exactly when the idea of practicing for a race first caught on. It is pretty certain that drivers did not practice the routes of the early town-to-town races at the start of the century, for in the beginning it was achievement enough to get from the start to the finish. Testing was certainly...

Suspended animation

Active suspension made a triumphant return at Kyalami, where Nigel Mansell ran away and hid As the dust settles once more on the parched Kyalami and the South African GP, we shall look back in the months to come and truly appreciate just how crushingly superior the Williams FW14Bs were. When Nigel Mansell spoke afterwards of his plan "to build a cushion of 20 seconds" you realised just how much...

Legends - The 1967 season

At present I'm working on a book, and a self-indulgent one at that, for my publisher has left the choice of content to me. So long as I keep to Grand Prix racing, from the beginning of the World Championship to the present day, I am free to write about whatever takes my fancy. What I want at any cost to avoid is yet another potted history of Formula One, and if consequently the book turns out a...

The right stuff

Out of a small workshop, and against enormous odds, sprang an unlikely world force. But Paul Fearnly believes that what made cooper great also caused it to fail Cooper's numerous successes provide the framework from which hang the innumerable anecdotes and fond memories that give this legendary team its winning appearance. You can't help but warm to Surbiton's finest and its ugly-bug machines....

Believe the hype

Bernie’s Mercedes-Benz makes mega bucks as market booms Speculation was rife recently that the market for historic cars was going to come to a grisly end, with machines with strong race pedigrees being left to gather dust rather than face the humiliation of an ‘unsold’ notice in an auction results table. Except this is not proving to be the case. H&H achieved £1.25 million in its inaugural...

To win Monaco once is special. To win five times is incredible. To also win Indy and Le Mans is out of this world. This is how he did it... Streets, cars, fame, desireGraham Hill loved Monaco, and Monaco loved Graham Hill. Paul Fearnley examines the most famous driver/circuit relationship in motor racing Time was running out.

1st Austrian Grand Prix

A lucky win for Brabham Zeltweg, Austria, September 1st. Motoring sport in Austria receives little or no government support or enthusiasm, and the various sporting clubs have to fight hard to maintain any sort of racing programme. It is only the enthusiasm of the Austrian sports people that causes any progress to be made at all, and this year their sport took a big stride forward with the holding...
