Germany’s Championship

Turbocharging for (nearly) all Ranging over Germany and Belgium, the deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft is an 11-round series that caters for some superbly engineered cars of extraordinary value. Basically the cars conform to Group 5 of the FIA International regulations, popularly known as the Silhouette formula.

Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

Porsche's hottest numbers

In 60 years the Stuttgart firm has produced some glorious cars. Picking the 10 best models would be tricky enough, but the 10 best individual chassis? Time to turn to a true Porsche expert… By Michael Cotton There was a time when I did not care for Porsches at all. There, heresy confessed! My school exercise books were covered in drawings of Ferrari and Maserati Grand Prix cars, beautiful front-...

Silverstone 6-hour Race

Although Porsches swept the board in the third round of the World Championship for Makes at Silverstone on May 15th, with thirteen of the German cars in the top fourteen places at the finish. the Kosset Six Hours proved a much better race than many had dared to expect. It is true that the lone factory Porsche 935/77 driven by Jochen Mass and Jacky Ickx dominated the first halt of the event,...

World Championship for Makes and World Championship for Sports Cars The story so far . . .

The story so far . . . When the Group 5 circus of so-called "Special Production Cars" comes to Brands Hatch on the 24th and 25th of September for the seventh round of the World Championship for Makes, the once fiercely contested title will have already been long decided in Porsche's favour. When this summary of the championship to date was written, the Canadian round at Mosport had still to take...

One that got away

Howden Ganley: 1975 Nürburgring 1000Km Despite owning a brace of year-old Gulf GR7 Mirages, Gelo Racing boss Georg Loos concentrated on his GT Porsches. But the Nürburgring 1000Km was different. His compatriot Willi Kauhsen, who was running year-old Alfa T33TT12s, entered three cars for the first time; Loos responded with both GR7s. His drivers were John Watson/Tom Pryce and Tim Schenken/Howden...

Star Letter

Ascent of K3 Sir, My remembrance of the Porsche 935 K3 (November '04 issue) is from during its heyday in the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschoft (DRM): John Fitzpatrick, Bob Wollek and Klaus Ludwig all drove these fire-belchers. You will notice from the photos you took of the Charles Ivey Kremer car that it doesn't have the Porsche crest on the nose. This is because (as I remember it) it was not...

Before he departed we asked John for some . . . European Racing Memories An understated off-white ski-jacket matched the mood of the plain but effective Golf GTi parked outside our London offices.

Over there & overlooked

Why don't we think of John Fitzpatrick as a sports car star? Because his major successes came in the States, says Gary Watkins The question 'Who won the most major sportscar races at the wheel of Porsche's 935 in all its iterations?' would undoubtedly yield some predictable answers. The name you'd probably get thrown back at you is Bob Wollek, the victor of more than a dozen DRM German Racing...
