Formula 3 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 F3, made the step at...

Formula 3

With the scheduled F3 opening round at Silverstone on March 2nd postponed because the track was snowbound, the Thruxton meeting the following Sunday actually opened the series. Since the formula introduced a "B" class for year-old cars in 1984, and went 'flat bottomed' last year, it has gone from strength to strength. Twenty nine runners started at Thruxton, there were a further seven entries who...

Veteran to Classic

Morgan memories Some time ago the proud owner of the Morgan Plus-4, KAB 303, reintroduced me to it, reminding me that I had run it as editorial transport in the early 1950s. KAB 303 has more recently changed hands again and its present owner has asked what I remember about it. Too many memories crowd back to put in a letter, so I thought I would write about it here on a sort of "now it can be...

A man of the people

Time is money to Eddie Jordan; usually it's someone else's time and certainly someone else's money. "Money is nonstop", he says cheerfully, and so is he. Any conversation with him that lasts more than 10 minutes is inevitably interrupted. This time it's yet another phone call, for which he excuses himself politely. "That'll be another $3.5 million if they want it," he says brusquely, a man used...

Track visit -- La Châtre

Le Mans, Rouen, Reims, Clermont-Ferrand... France had another international circuit using public roads -- in this case into the 1980s.  Marcus Simmons takes a trip back into obscure F3 history Photography by Glenn Dunbar/LAT  Leaning over the barriers, the team personnel could hardly believe it. Ten laps into this European Formula Three round and the entire field were still swarming around in a...

Race 1999

The final Le Mans 24 Hours of the millennium is also the hardest race to call for some time. With five major manufacturers looking for victory Adam Cooper assesses this year's main entries. Every year people say that the Le Mans 24 Hours will be the best race ever. While those who saw Ford GT40s or Porsche 917s in action might disagree, there's no doubt that the Vingt Quatre Heures is continuing...

Won for the road

This road-going supercar wasn't expected to even finish on its Le Mans debut 10 years ago. But the McLaren F1 GTR beat all the prototypes to win. By Gary Watkins The thing may have looked the part, but there was no way it could win the Le Mans 24 Hours. Not first time out anyway. The world's fastest street machine it may have been, but this particular supercar hadn't been conceived — in anyway,...

Under Scrutiny - Sauber-Mercedes

Bow is Drawn for Silver Arrows Five new Group C cars, model Mercedes C11, will be built at Peter Sauber's headquarters in Hinwil, Zurich in the coming weeks in preparation for a serious programme to retain the World Sports-Prototype Championship. In October, when the flag falls in Mexico, they'll all be museum pieces superceded by the 3½-litre Mercedes C291. There's a new Mercedes racing...

Cotton On

English remains the common international language of motor racing, even though half the drivers in Formula 1 are Italian and only three men who competed regularly last season actually speak English as their mother tongue. Having wrested the seniority in Grand Prix racing from the Italians at the end of the 1960s, we do seem to have slackened our grip on the driver's championship, even if the...

The First Post-War Monte Carlo Rally

Convincing Hotchkiss Victory. Bristol Placed First of the British Cars. Good Showing by Jowett Javelin, Allard, Ford, o.h.v. Simca and rear-engined Renault entries. The Monte Carlo Rally, held last month for the first time since the war, was a great success, and a gruelling test of the modern car which warranted, and received, world-wide publicity. The regulations called for closed cars and the...
