Star letter

Gilles:  Epic talent  -- our correspondent this month was also our correspondent when Gilles first showed his talent. Sir, I thoroughly enjoyed the 'Year Zero' feature on Gilles Villeneuve (October issue), particularly as I was in Trois-Rivières that weekend. I believe I took the action photographs of his March 76B which probably accounts for them being ever so slightly fuzzy. During my seven...

Return of the Native

Dan Gurney is set to relaunch his Indycar team. His racing sabbatical doesn't worry him unduly At a time when Indy Car greats are retiring from active competition left, right and centre Mears, Unser, Rutherford, Andretti, Sullivan its good to have an American hero return to the sport. That's just will happen when Dan Gurney's All American Racers and Toyota debut the first Eagle Indy Car in a...

Pat on the comeback The 1990s have seen IndyCar racing dominated by two men and their teams: Roger Penske and Carl Haas. Together, Marlboro Penske and Newman/ Haas Racing have won 50 races, including three Indianapolis 500s, and three PPG championships. It was not always so. Throughout the 1980s a third man matched Penske and Haas in terms of on-track success and off-track influence: Pat Patrick...

Lunch with... Stefan Johansson

He drove for both Ferrari and McLaren in Formula 1, starred in Champ Car and won Le Mans. But for this cultured Swede, there’s more to life than motor racing He’s had a lifetime of racing whatever he could get, grabbing any opportunity, rolling with the punches when it went wrong, and never losing his laid-back, good-humoured approach. Having started with karts as a pre-teen, he’s still getting...

Stock taking . . .

Postcard from America The headlines look grim for IndyCar racing. First Danny Sullivan is cut loose by Rick Galles and winds-up with a five-race Winston Cup deal, then comes word that Carl Haas and Michael Kranefuss are going NASCAR racing. . . together. To hear some people talk, it's the beginning of the end of IndyCar racing. But not so fast. . . The circumstances surrounding Galles' decision...

Once in a lifetime...

Gunnar Nilsson won just one Grand Prix before his tragic death, but, thanks to his courage and character, his memory still lives large among his friends today. Mark Hughes pays his respects If a racing driver has to die young, there is an almost gladiatorial rightness that he do so in his element on the track. Gunnar Nilsson was denied even that, succumbing to cancer at 29. His friend Ronnie...

"It was a partnership that would be impossible today"

Ken Tyrrell was much more than just my team boss – he was a lifelong friend too, and one whom I never tire of talking about, as I recently told Nigel Roebuck When we speak of legendary partnerships in motor racing, perhaps the one that would spring first to most minds is that of Colin Chapman and Jim Clark: throughout his eight-year Formula 1 career Jimmy never raced other than a Lotus, after all...

Ready Eddie

Once a hero to legions of motorcycle racing fans, Eddie Lawson is preparing for his first full season in major league car racing It’s understandable if Rick Galles is nervous: he just hired a 37-year-old with perhaps two dozen auto races to his name to drive his Indycar. But it's also understandable if Galles looks like the cat that swallowed the canary: his new driver is Eddie Lawson. And...

Formula One: The Detroit Grand Prix

Surprises Downtown, Detroit, June 5th The big surprise, albeit a pleasant one, was that another Formula One race was held in Detroit. By any standards the 1982 event was a bit of a shambles and justified the simple rule that was not adhered to. Any new venue for a World Championship race is supposed to run a non-championship race first of all, to get the circuit and organisation working properly...
