You were there

Motor Sport articles prompted two readers to share their memories with us, while our third contributor has enjoyed some classic Indianapolis 500s Graham Potter Graham was a keen fan at the 1977 Brands Hatch Six Hours, in which Hans Stuck and Ronnie Peterson gave the BMW 320 Turbo its European debut, as described by Stuck in his recent ‘Lunch With’ (December). {1} Peterson qualified the flame-...

At the risk of being branded a heretic, I'd like humbly to suggest that observers of IndyCar racing have been a tad harsh in criticising Championship Auto Racing Teams over the years. True, the restless team owners reversed their field once again last month in Indianapolis when they tossed out the five-vote/seven-man Board of Directors in favour of the "one-franchise/one-vote" Board system that...

Tour Auto, France (April 7-12) This recreation of the Tour de France provides a glorious journey, both through 20 years of GT cars and the French countryside. From its Paris start to the finish in Cannes, via timed sections on closed roads and visits to the Dijon, Charade and Ledenon circuits, this is a truly fabulous event. Star names pepper its entry list — Danny Sullivan, Walter Röhrl, Bobby Rahal, Jean...

Penske Dominates Indianapolis 500

The Cosworth DFX engine's ten-year winning streak at the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race was broken on May 29 when Rick Mears brought his Chevrolet V8-engined Penske home first, for the team's fourth success in five years. All three Penske PC17s started from the front row of the grid, after qualifying runs in excess of 215mph, and Danny Sullivan scorched into a one-lap lead, only to crash at half-...

Golden days (and nights) at Daytona

Florida’s sports car classic celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. Out of some great finishes during that half-century, we pick 10 stand-out races The origins of the Daytona 24 Hours can be found in the name of the track that this month celebrates the 50th birthday of the event. NASCAR founder Bill France Sr had christened the giant facility that emerged from the Florida scrub in 1958 the...

Testing at Rio

Six days of intensive, exhausting Formula One tyre and development testing took place between January 16th-21st in sweltering conditions at Rio de Janeiro's Autodromo Riocentro in preparation for the first World Championship Grand Prix of the season, scheduled to take place at that circuit on March 25th. The vast majority of competing teams took part in this busy programme of testing, but the...

Still crazy after all these years

Al mighty

Few racers have let their driving do their talking like Al Unser Snr. Despite winning the Indy 500 four times, he tends to shun publicity. But this modest hero spoke to David Malsher about his Brickyard brilliance The Penske team was in trouble. Firstly, its PC16 hadn't worked in the opening rounds of 1987, and now it faced the Indy 500, running year-old March 86Cs. Then, early in practice, Danny...

IMSA-Daytona 24 Hours

Justice done at Daytona For all their achievements in the past, neither Al Holbert nor Derek Bell had succeeded in winning the Daytona 24-Hours, but, with Al Unser Junior, they set the record straight on February 1st/2nd. The failure-rate of the cars was surprisingly high, only five of the 20 quickest machines reaching the finish, and none of the first six to cross the line did so without time-...

Lunch with... Hans Stuck

As the son of a pre-war Auto Union ace, racing was in his blood. Today, ‘Junior’ is a cult hero in his own right It’s intriguing how often sons of racing drivers become racers themselves. In Formula 1 Nico carries on the work of Keke, as did Jacques for Gilles – although so far only Damon and Graham have achieved a World Champion son of a World Champion father. Sometimes grandsons follow to make...
