Formula Two Review

Giacomelli's Crown Italy has crowned its first European Formula Two champion. At Hockenheim, in Germany, on September 24th Bruno Giacomelli won the final round of the series in his works March-BMW 782, but the boy from Brescia had actually clinched the title nearly two months earlier at Enna Pergusa, in Sicily. Our review of the series in the August issue of Motor Sport took us up to Giacomelli's...

National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Formula Two Review

With five of the 12 rounds of this year's European Formula Two Championship run two Swedish drivers head the points table. On paper Stefan Johansson has the lead on 19 points but fellow countryman Eje Elgh (18 points) is appealing against a disqualification from the results of the Thruxton round, which cost him six points. Elgh finished runner-up to Maurer team-mate Robert Guerrero at Thruxton...

Home Rule for Mercedes

Continuing what now looks like a repeat whitewash of the World Sports Prototype Championship, the Sauber Mercedes team notched up another 1 —2 success at the Nürburgring in August. The Silk Cut Jaguars were fast and reliable, finishing in third and fourth places one lap behind, and Mark Blundell was "best of the rest" in a solo drive taking his Nissan to fifth place, three laps in arrears. It...

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

World Sportscar Championship: Dijon 480-kms

That magic ingredient What seemed like a formality for the Sauber Mercedes team at Dijon on May 21, and therefore a contest for third place, turned into a splendid success for an underdog Porsche, a Reinhold Joest 962C driven by Bob Wollek and Frank Jelinski. It might seem rather far-fetched to describe a Joest Porsche as an underdog, but it had been almost two years since a product of Weissach...

The South African Grand Prix

A pointless exercise Kyalami, Johannesburg, February 7th Notwithstanding the lack of support from Ferrari, Renault, Alfa Romeo and Talbot Ligier, the Formula One Constructors Association entered a total of nineteen drivers for this year's South African Grand Prix at Kyalami, although whether FISA will ever formally regard it as the first round of the FIA World Championship is hard to say. With no...

Blind AMbition

Twenty-three years after its Le Mans win, Aston Martin returned to La Sarthe. Sort of. Richard Heseltine explains how a one-time club racer fired up a sleeping giant and got a rude awakening When club racer-turned-entrant Robin Hamilton moved into the big league with his ill-starred Nimrod Group C venture, he was tarred with the more derogatory connotations of the word 'amateur'. But he was...

Johnny was a Bute

What a fantastic article detailing the career of Johnny Dumfries. He has long fascinated me as he not only raced in the era that I find the most interesting but has the added intrigue of being titled. For me he is exactly the sort of British driver that we never really saw the best of, and your article seems to bear that out. It brings to mind so many people from the late-70s or early-80s who had...

The Pearl Of Warwick

You have to sympathise with Jean Todt and the Peugeot Talbot Sport team. Winners of four Sportscar World Championship races this year, dominant at Le Mans, and confirmed as world champions in August, they find that paddock talk is confined to the paucity of entries, and the near certain demise of the series in October. Derek Warwick, who shares the drivers' championship with Yannick Dalmas,...
