Indianapolis 500

A rookie at the Brickyard After twenty-five years in motor racing, I suddenly found myself a "rookie" — American for a first-timer. I had, in fact, been to the famous track they call the Brickyard once before, but not in the hallowed month of May. Everything felt so different that I really did feel like a newcomer.

The Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival

In the end, it surpassed the wildest expectations.

LE MANS 24 HOURS

The Porsche factory was successful at Le Mans every year between 1981 and 1987, a run finally ended by Jaguar, and it has taken the Zuffenhausen company seven years to return to the ACO's podium. Porsche's 13th Le Mans victory was achieved on June 19 by Yannick Dalmas, Hurley Haywood and Mauro Baldi in a Dauer 962LM Porsche running in the Grand Touring category, and they were a single lap ahead...

Different Class

Stateside, CART Championship review

The right stuff! Indycar racing witnessed a clear shift in its delicate balance of power in 1988, although its turbocharged formula continued to provide more competitive racing than Formula One could a new Penske chassis took over from March or Lola as the thing to have, while Ilmor's Chevrolet V8 finally ousted Cosworth's DFX as the dominant powerplant — a combination of circumstances which...
