Notes on the Cars at Jarama

With the Spanish GP opening the season for Formula One Championship races in Europe there was a lot of pre-race testing going on at the little Jarama circuit and some of it was useful for the race itself and some was purely experimental. Since Porsche revealed last year that they had been racing cars with solid rear axles, that is with no differential unit, relying on the distortion in the tyres...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

— An air of foreboding Zolder, May 9th WITH the Imola "strikers" returned to the lucrative world of Formula One, the Belgian entry was full to overflowing, but their union shop-steward made it clear that he and his men intended to employ "disruptive methods" and protest against anything and everything.

Dizzy heights: 40 seconds per lap in F1...

Lapping Mallory in 40sec in a ground-effect F1 car — 75 times — must have taken pretty high fitness levels, but that's exactly what happened in the Aurora-backed series. Emilio de Villota was the circuit's star man — he had already won a Shellsport Group Eight round in 1977 with the F1 Lyncar, and another later that year in a McLaren before adding two Aurora victories in 1980 with his RAM Racing...

My only Grand Prix

1975 British at Silverstone by John Nicholson How did you end up graduating from Formula Atlantic straight to Formula One? I'd done Atlantic for three years and won the championship, so what was I supposed to do next? It was a joint decision with my sponsor, Bruno Drury at Pinch Plant.
