No sugar, no beer, no fizz

The Fittipaldi brothers lived the dream with their F1 team.

Eh? Come on, that's got you! Want an explanation? Okay— read on. Consider this: in 1980 there was a neat little F1 team....

Second to none

F1 success was slow to come, but in F2 the spectacular Jochen Rindt set the benchmark – even for Clark and Stewart By Paul Fearnley It was the ‘Summer of Shove’ – for Jim Clark at least. All-of-a-sudden Cosworth DFV shove. Most powerful engine, world’s best driver and most advanced car – the just-bolt-it-on-the-back, still-a-bit-twitchy Lotus 49: no contest. From June 4, when he dominated the...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

On the Can-Am trail While in North America last month for the Canadian and US Grands Prix I was lucky enough to have a week in between the two World Championship races to spend my time as profitably as possible. Looking through the American calendar I realised I had the choice of the USAC race at Trenton, New Jersey, or the Can-Am race at Edmonton way over in Western Canada. It was a hard...

The Constructors —3

Van Diemen There is an old chestnut about a young man being interviewed for a job at Ford. "Tell me, what do you think we make here?" he was asked. "That's easy, sir," the interviewee replied, "you make cars." "Wrong!" he was told: "We make money and we make money by making cars." Much the same could be said of the Snetterton firm, Van Diemen International Racing Services Ltd. Its founder, Ralph...

Gil power

You'd be forgiven for thinking that competition was the last thing on Gil de Ferran's mind during the 1992 British F3 season. De Ferran gave Paul Stewart Racing its first title after four years in the formula, and the Brazilian topped the points table for most of the season. Comfortably, at that. No question, de Ferran and the PSR Reynard 923-Mugen were the strongest, and most consistent,...

They make racing cars: Ensign

The West Midlands is the heart of the British motor industry, but strangely, the building of competition cars is centred around trading estates in Huntingdon, Slough, and so on. However, racing cars have at last come to the "Black Country" with the formation of Lewis-Nunn Racing, producers of the Ensign. The Ensign is the success story of the 1971 season so far, for Ensign Formula Three cars lead...

Notes on the cars

The Scuderia Ferrari produced a brand new Tipo 312T2 for Lauda, number 031 in the series, and the previous car 030 became the "muletto". It was unchanged in layout and design, apart from slightly different radiator air exits, there being nothing new on the suspension front, in spite of numerous experiments being made at the Maranello test-track. Reutemann retained 312T2/029 as usual. In the...
