Grand Prix Historique, Monaco

What is it about Monaco? The high-rise apartments have trashed the old Victorian elegance, the streets and traffic are brain-fryingly chaotic and the almost palpable smell of money leaves a vulgar aftertaste. And yet no matter how many times you go back, each visit lures you in. You become transfixed. Perhaps it’s the glimpse of lives most of us can barely imagine. Mostly, at least in the month...

Rookie with a record

It’s difficult to think of Simon Pagenaud as a rookie, given how long he’s been knocking around Indycar racing. The Frenchman was a promising 21-year-old with a background in Formula Renault when he decided to cast his lot in America in 2006. Since then, his Indycar career has been stop-start – which is why seven years later he’s become perhaps US single-seater racing’s most experienced Rookie of...

Thoroughbreds cause a stir at British GP

The Silverstone Thoroughbred Grand Prix car race during the British Grand Prix weekend in July drew interest from several senior members of the current grand prix paddock. "This is great. I haven't seen some of these cars for so long," said McLaren's team co-ordinator Jo Ramirez as he stood in the TGP pitlane on Saturday afternoon. "All these cars are driven hard. I remember the Williams FW07...

Chasing new highs Duncan Dayton’s Highcroft team won last year’s American Le Mans Series with an Acura ARX-02a LMP1 driven by David Brabham and Scott Sharp, with Dario Franchitti joining them for the longer races. This year Dayton’s team is expected to repeat its championship success in a depleted field of prototypes. The demise of Acura’s P1 programme means that few, if any, LMP1 cars will...

The Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival

In the end, it surpassed the wildest expectations. Fifty years to the day after its first meeting, motor racing returned to Goodwood with an event none of the 80,000 spectators would argue was not the greatest historic race meeting of all time. The restoration of the buildings, the period livery of staff and traditional BARC and drivers' cricket match are images of an event which recaptured the...

Simon Taylor's Notebook

The first Silverstone Classic boasted a huge entry, a chaotic paddock, and every type of historic racer Silverstone's new Classic meeting was a fine achievement, in particular because such an immense and high quality entry was assembled for the hectic two-day programme. Almost 550 cars, from the 1920s to the 1990s, started 17 races, and they echoed almost every racing epoch. Of course, a classic...

Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year. When the British summer broke with a vengeance for part of Sunday, it did little to dilute the sizeable crowd's enjoyment....

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...

Oily rags to riches

This was the seventh iteration of an event which was launched in 1997 and, after a three-year pause, has...
