Lunch with... Mark Blundell

His first home was a caravan, and the school of hard knocks was his only education. It would stand him in good stead on his climb to Formula 1 and beyond Nowadays karting is the kindergarten, where aspiring hotshoes learn to feel through the seat of their pants.

Lunch with...Julian Bailey

He’d have liked ‘sensible’ Damon Hill’s Formula 1 career, but Julian reckons he wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun along the way… By Simon Taylor It’s a common complaint that today’s professional racing driver is too squeaky-clean, too focused on his career to have any fun out of the cockpit. His own personality must be subdued by the requirements of PR and brand image, and what little free...

Formula Three Review It started in November 1982 and lasted until June this year: a one-man domination of F3 that broke all previous records and not a few spirits. And, just as surely as it did for Nelson Piquet in 1978, it will pave Ayrton Senna's path to Formula One. The determined Brazilian, already feared by many rivals even before he'd graduated from FF2000 (where he was equally dominant) to...

Matters of moment

The RAC Rally The second RAC International Rally of Great Britain, sponsored this year by the Daily Telegraph, occupied from March 31st to April 5th, brought the ozone-towns of Hastings, Blackpool and Scarborough into the news—and in some ways disgraced the RAC. Out of 251 entries the only foreign drivers were Becquart (Jowett), Dr Angelvin (Simca), Gatsonides (Ford), Leiner (Mercedes), Merck (...

T.C. Harrison wins the 1952 R.A.C. Trials Championship

The 1952 R.A.C. Trials Championship was contested over a sporting course at Gandalo Camp, Catterick, in Yorkshire, by kind permission of the War Department. The rocky ways were muddy rather than slimy but a lacing of ice made the going difficult. It is a great honour to qualify or be invited to compete in this annual Championship which winds up the trials year, so let us place on record the field...

Persistence Is Its Own Reward

After all the years of disappointment, Nigel Mansell faces his sternest test as he dons the world champion's mantle Adelaide 1986 seems so very far away now, doesn't it? Nigel Mansell drove such a perfect race there, avoiding confrontation, holding back, putting himself in just the right position and taking nothing more out of the Williams-Honda than he had to. Third place was all he needed to...
