Endurance racing review

FOLLOWING the postponement of the races at Brands Hatch and Mugello, the World Endurance Championship finally took off at Monza on April 18th. Those early events were doomed from the very beginning for they did not form qualifying rounds of the Manufacturers' Championship and did not attract the interest of the major teams like Porsche or Ford. That, combined with their positions on the...

Formula 2 review

The European Formula Two season effectively came to an end at Vallelunga at the beginning of October when Ronnie Peterson secured the European Trophy with a convincing victory in the 22nd Rome Grand Prix. Thoughts that Peterson might be toppled from his domination of the Formula Two scene were high after the qualifying round at Albi in central southern France a fortnight before the Italian event...

Tales of the unexpected

1996 Monaco Grand Prix, Monte Carlo A cliche, proved less often than you'd think, is that at Monaco, the man who leads at the first corner will win. The 1996 result blew away all preconceptions. Qualifying hardly hinted at it, Michael Schumacher somehow wrestling the Ferrari F310 onto pole, half a second up on Damon Hill's Williams-Renault, which had won four of the opening five rounds. The...

The Le Mans 24 Hour Race

Rondeau's rendezvous Every year, the Le Mans 24 Hours proves something special, whatever the predicament of sportscar racing as a whole. It has a lot to with the unique atmosphere of the Circuit of the Sarthe, and the magic of a race that runs twice around the clock on an ultra-fast eight and a half mile course still largely composed of normal main roads. This year, however, the ACO's Grand Prix...

Downhill all the way

The BRM P201's first grand prix flattered to deceive: it was too little too late. Paul Fearnley tells the story and drives a survivor As his wheezy, knock-kneed steed cantered along Kyalami's main straight at almost 150mph — well, it was downhill! — the 'Cowangie Kid' had plenty of time to mull over his future. Larry Perkins, for it was he, desperately wanted to stay in Formula One — but no...

The Swedish Grand Prix

A Tyrrell Double Anderstorp. Yune 9th. There were a few changes on the driver scene for the Swedish Grand Prix as drivers retired hurt, just retired or were busy doing something else. Arturo Merzario had broken a finger in an accident during the sports car race at Imola, the week before the Swedish event, so his place in. the Frank Williams team was taken by Richard Robarts. In the March team...

To win Monaco once is special. To win five times is incredible. To also win Indy and Le Mans is out of this world. This is how he did it... Streets, cars, fame, desireGraham Hill loved Monaco, and Monaco loved Graham Hill. Paul Fearnley examines the most famous driver/circuit relationship in motor racing Time was running out. On several levels. The most pressing problem, however, was to qualify....

Daytona 24-hours

An American Club Race AS CAN be seen from the results appended below this year's opening round of World Manufacturers Championship turned out to be little more than an American club race. Daytona Organiser Bill France, for some reason, decided to revert back to the original 24-hour format despite the fact that last year's 6-hour event proved popular. This, coupled with a marked reluctance to...

One chassis, Five Le Mans

It wasn’t a 24 Hours winner, but Gulf GR8 chassis ‘802’ was one of the race’s most successful cars in terms of longevity The list of history’s great winning Le Mans cars is probably headed by those chassis which won more than once. Ford GT40 ‘1075’ immediately springs to mind, the Gulf-JW team’s 1968-69 double winner, together with Reinhold Joest’s ‘New Man’ Porsche 956 ‘117’ which did the double...
