Historic scene: November 2018

Exploring how one small British racing team balances options, budgets and expectations on the international circuit Most prep shops I visit have Bugatti sumps and Zoller blowers on their workbenches, so to see inside a current GT outfit broadened my education, particularly in how you make racing viable. It’s not by running your own cars. If you watch GT racing, you’ll know the name Barwell...

TOURING CARS - PAUL RADISICH COLUMN

On top of the world Paul Radisich, Touring Car World Champion – it’s got a nice ring to it. In fact I think I’ll say it again – Paul Radisich, Touring Car World Champion. To retain this title – I won it at Monza last year –doesn’t make up for failing to win the British Touring Car Championship – that’s a year of effort and the World Cup was just one week – but the kudos it carries makes it very...

No half measures

Alfa Corse, the slick, Milan-based racing division of Alfa Romeo, has chosen to contest the BTCC to do rather more than simply raise brand awareness in the UK. Last year, success in the DTM was reflected by increased sales in Germany. The feeling at Alfa HQ is that the profile of the British two-litre series, in which at least 10 major manufacturers will be involved this year, is such that...

Giorgio Pianta, 1935-2014

Giorgio Pianta, who has died at the age of 78, was always dubbed Lancia test driver, but his role within Fiat’s competitions depart was more important than that and led to him being given control of motor sport at Alfa Romeo. The Italian did join up as a test driver and played a key role in development of the Fiat 131 Abarth in which Walter Röhrl won the 1980 World Rally Championship. But his...

Formula One -- Brazilian Grand Prix

At last! After the dramatic inflation of recent months, and the manner in which most of them drive on what pass for roads in Sao Paulo, the local populace is used to scrapes and close escapes. Yet 70,000 of them held their breath throughout the closing laps of the Brazilian GP as their idol, Ayrton Senna, performed perhaps the greatest escape of them all. On seven previous occasions the McLaren...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Consistent, persistent, insistent

Some journalists – no names, no pack drill – seem to think that the British Touring Car Championship is as good as over. It's true that Alfa Romeo stole all the early headlines and that Gabriele Tarquini put together a string of victories at the start of the season, but I'm only 30 points – which can be recouped in the course of a double-header race meeting behind him. This championship is so...
