Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

Seconds out

Should, but wasn’t… Writer Simon Arron, illustrator Guy Allen The end was nigh for Formula 3’s 1-litre era – and this was a fitting reminder of just how good the racing could be. Aussie Dave Walker (Lotus 59) was tussling with Tony Trimmer (Brabham...

F3 review

The final four rounds of the Motor Sport/Shell Formula Three Championship built up into an amazingly exciting climax which was finally decided at Brands Hatch on October 18th. An earlier Brands Hatch qualifying event, on August 31st, had been won by Gerry Birrell, who was not previously very well placed in the Championship and had shot into the ratings with the help of some new Dunlop tyres. At...

Sportscar Survey

The World Championship of MakesOsterreichring, June 29th With victories in both of what will probably prove to be the last two rounds of the series, Alfa Romeo have won this year's World Championship for Makes, taking the title for the first time in their history.

Recent racing results

Last month we reported that Denny Hulme had won the first round of the Can-Am series with the latest McLaren M20, but only after a scare from Mark Donohue's turbo-charged Porsche 917/10. On July 9th the second round of the series was held and this time the Penske Porsche did win but with George Follmer driving and not Donohue who had crashed and injured his knee in unofficial practising. Hulme...

Formula Two review

Jarier scores maximum points Ford fight back Two opening rounds of the European Formula Two Championship at Mallory Park and Hockenheim were crushing victories for the combination of a March chassis, a BMW engine and the promising, if somewhat impetuous, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jarier.

Dave Morgan: "My best day at a circuit"

"My first ever circuit race was at Mallory, and I went on to be quite successful there in my Mini Cooper S. It was always a very good circuit for me. For the F2 race I had Ed Reeves's Formula Atlantic Brabham. I'd raced it once, at the end of 1971, at Oulton Park. Then Ed said. 'How do you fancy doing F2?' He got David Wood to do an 1860cc engine far more reliable than the 2-litres but less...
