Incentives to Win

When Audi Sport UK announced its sudden withdrawal from rallying in July this year, one of the questions which needed answering was whether that decision affected Volkswagen, the other arm of VAG. Volkswagen has been involved in the sport in Britain for a number of years, both in rallying and racing.

Formula Three — A Fresh Start

The 1985 British F3 championship promises to be the best for many years and the opening two rounds have seen large grids, close racing and a greater variety of machinery than we have been used to lately since Formula Three has been basically "Formula Ralt". On the strength of the first two rounds, the Reynard 853 is the pace-setter, having scored first and second both at Silverstone and Thruxton...

Active suspension

Formula One cars' active suspension of the late 1980s-early 1990s took motorsport technology to new levels. Keith Howard explains how springs and dampers almost became things of the past— and then bounced back. Search the worldwide web using 'active suspension' as keywords and you will quickly find claims that Williams invented the technology in 1992, and that it works by predicting the contour...

Formula Two has admittedly declined over the years, in 1978, for example, up to 42 entries were received for a single race and qualifying took place at most rounds.
