Matters of moment

On the Friday ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix a collective groan rose from the Motor Sport office: Jean Todt had confirmed that the Bahrain Grand Prix was on. Wrong decision, we thought, and most of you seemed to agree. Beyond altruistic sentiments, it also gave us a practical problem. I write as we close for press, after the Chinese GP – but before Bahrain. Oh, the frustrations of deadlines on a...

Bond relives F3 era in Lotus

Formula 3 ace Bev Bond was reunited with his Lotus 59 from the 1970 season during Race Retro, when the Gold Leaf Team Lotus car was part of the HSCC’s display. James Wigmore now owns the 1-litre F3 racer. “I last saw that car when I drove it at the end of 1970,” said Bond (left), now 70 years old. “It started off with the nose that it now has again, then halfway through the year we went to a...

Lunch with.. Jody Scheckter

From World Champion racing driver, to million-dollar businessman, to his current guise as an award-winning organic farmer: all his life, Jody Scheckter has been driven to succeed By Simon Taylor If you’re a top Formula 1 driver, you are a driven man. As well as all those skills and physical attributes, you are motivated by abnormally high levels of determination, self-confidence, persistence and...

Racing round-up

Gran Premio de la Republica Argentina, January 24th. After the unfortunate Ferrari/Matra accident in the 1,000-kilometre race at Buenos Aires the Italian team withdrew completely from the Formula One race and the French team entered only one car, so that there were only ten cars on the entry list; the organisers invited three miscellaneous F5000 entries and two American Formula A entries to...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

Formulae progress At the start of the year this column told readers of two new single-seater Formulae being introduced to the British calendar. One was the Motor Circuit Developments-backed Formula Atlantic and the other the Volkswagen-sponsored Formula Super Vee. Now with the season drawing to an end it is perhaps time to assess the progress of the two rivals. Firstly, Formula Super Vee is in...

Player's pleas

15 minutes of fame Lotus 73: Monaco F3 – May 13, 1972 A black-and-gold Lotus smoked its Formula One rivals in 1972, but its Formula Three counterpart coughed and spluttered its way to an early demise. By Paul Fearnley A new era dawned in 1972: Formula One got its youngest world champion, and gained a commercial face that would change it forever. Lotus had ushered in sponsorship as we know it with...

Lunch with... Alan Jones

Williams’ favourite son on dodgy campers, nightmare bosses and gelling with Frank and Patrick. By Simon Taylor Scroll down the roster of drivers who won a single World Championship – names like James Hunt and Jody Scheckter, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill – and for each there’s a different reason why they never took a second title. In the case of Alan Jones, it’s probably down to the English...

Formula Three Review

With five rounds of the popular Motor Sport/Shell Formula Three Championship now run, Tony Trimmer is still in front on points-score. His lead has narrowed considerably, though, and Gold Leaf-Team Lotus drivers Bev Bond and Dave Walker are poised only two points behind Trimmer in joint second place. The last two rounds have both seen new winners, the first being Bond at Oulton Park on May 25th....

The Argentine Grand Prix

Tyrrell-Cosworth and Stewart still supreme Buenos Aires, January 23rd. For the first time, since the beginning of the 3-litre Formula One, the season started in Argentina in January rather than in South Africa in March; in fact it was the first World Championship Formula One race in this torrid South American country for 12 years. The venue, however, was the same, the impressive Buenos Aires...

Around and About

Comment on the Racing and Club SceneThe Lotus engine In this day and age there are precious few companies in Britain, outside the big four, who manufacture their own engines. We can only think of Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce/Bentley, Reliant (for three wheelers and the little Rebel) and now Lotus have joined this élite band. Lotus have, of course, been building the 1600 twin-cam engines for several...
