Marcus Pye's Diary

Opposites attract our columnist this month, from a Can-Am monster to a dainty, and obscure, Rhodesian GP winner Goodwood: Incongruous it most definitely looked against the elegant backdrop of Goodwood House, but that is precisely why the 1982 March Can-Am dinosaur was the car of last month's press day for me — and editor Simmons! It's not that I don't appreciate the intricate engineering of a...

Survival of the fittest

Last March the All-American Racers Toyota Eagle Mk3 won the Sebring 12 Hours, but doubts remained that the little 2.1-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine could last around the clock. It did so admirably at Daytona on January 30/31 as PJ Jones, Mark Dismore and Rocky Moran won the Rolex 24 Hours with ease, despite a 74-minute pit stop on Sunday morning while the transaxle was changed. Anyone...

Toyota on top

This year's race, the 40th anniversary celebration, was won for the first time by Dan Gurney's All American Racers Toyota Eagle team.

Marcel Albers The death of Marcel Albers at Thruxton on Easter Monday robbed Dutch motorsport of one its brightest young prospects. The immensely likable 25 year-old was just beginning to realise the promise that he'd shown in 1991, when he undertook his first season of F3 with Alan Docking Racing.

"He Didn't Need a Kiss and a Cuddle"

Little Teo Fabi had an inner steel that made him tougher than he looked. Which was just as well for an Indycar and F1 ace who was dogged by bad luck By Paul Fearnley Only four Indianapolis 500 rookies in 100 years have started from pole: Teo Fabi in 1983 is one.
