Gugelmin Clinches F3 Championship

This year's Marlboro British Formula Three Championship has been the strangest in years for no one driver has emerged as the star of the series. It has also been one of the closest with the outcome being decided at the final round at Silverstone on October 13th.

A Brazilian Proving a Point

Roberto the racehorse had a successful career, capped by a 1972 Derby success with assistance from Lester Piggott. For Roberto the racing driver, life has yet to scale such happy peaks, even though — by rights — it ought to have done a long time ago.

In a career that has been dogged by more than its fair share of ups and downs, the final blow came at the end of last year when he was unexpectedly sacked by Mercedes.
