Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey! By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Gugelmin Clinches F3 Championship

My Greatest Race: Martin Donnelly

Macau Formula Three Grand Prix, 1987 Former Lotus Grand Prix driver Martin Donnelly recalls a drunken week in the Far East when, despite a shocking hangover, he was able to beat a grid full of future F1 stars. I'd have to say that the best race of my career was probably winning the Macau Formula Three Grand Prix in 1987. Other races were memorable - winning at Pau in F3000, at Brands Hatch twice...

Happy The Man

“I speak enough Japanese to get into trouble, but not enough to talk myself out of it!"

Much the same could be said of the Snetterton firm, Van Diemen International Racing Services Ltd. Its founder, Ralph...

Toyota's own goal

Toyota will look back on the Silverstone 500 km race as a fairly spectacular own goal. Two weeks previously, the day after the Monza fiasco in fact, the BRDC proposed to reduce the British event, the second round of the Sportscar World Championship, to a mere 200 km. TOM'S Toyota objected so strongly that the race ran its full distance, and was won by Derek Warwick and Yannick Dalmas in a Peugeot...

Autopolis 430 km

Plaudits all round Peter Sauber, nice man that he is, shed a few tears. Dr Hermann Hiereth, the man responsible for Mercedes racing engines, looked dumbstruck. The virus that had plagued and destroyed the flat-12 engines on an hourly basis since August just cleared up and went away, simple as that! Michael Schumacher and Karl Wendlinger drove the race that they and the C291 have long deserved and...

Formula 3

With the scheduled F3 opening round at Silverstone on March 2nd postponed because the track was snowbound, the Thruxton meeting the following Sunday actually opened the series. Since the formula introduced a "B" class for year-old cars in 1984, and went 'flat bottomed' last year, it has gone from strength to strength. Twenty nine runners started at Thruxton, there were a further seven entries who...
