Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport.

Ferrari Win but Lola-Ford Fast Adenau, May 31st. The annual 1,000-kilometre race held on the Nurburgring this year celebrated its 10th anniversary, and did so with the largest entry imaginable, ranging from works Prototype Ferraris down to a 700-c.c.

Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength.

Chequered history

The Chequered Flag was among the most visible race and rally teams of the '60s and '70s.

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...

Paul Fearnley, Editor Now I'm not going to sit here and tell you that the just-gone Goodwood Revival was bigger and better than ever before. It was merely as good as last year's. That is to say fantastic. Perhaps not every race was a thriller as in 2001, but to see Duncan Dayton hang out David Piper's 275LM, Patrick Tambay and Emanuele Pirro tweak Cobra and E-type through the Chicane, and Win...

Ferrari 512 S & M, by Christian Huet. Cavalliera, £40.00. Few bluffs have ever been so comprehensively called as the CSI's back in 1969. Back then the World Sports-Prototype Championship catered for one-off racing cars with a maximum capacity of three litres, under the Group 6 rules.
