Events of the month

BTCC Brands Hatch The crowd at Brands Hatch experienced something unusual during the BTCC finale: it wasn’t raining. Well, not for the first few hours, anyway. Not since 2011 had there been a dry championship decider, which has added to the excitement – or stress, depending on which side of the paddock fence you sit. But the track was dry as the grid lined up for race one, championship leader...

Lunch with... Alastair Caldwell

He rose from cleaner to team manager at McLaren, walked out on Bernie Ecclestone and then found a way to fund a passion for fine cars Writer: Simon Taylor | Photographer: James Mitchell Spending a day or even an hour with Alastair Caldwell, listening to his fund of stories about Formula 1 from the inside 40 or more years ago, is an unforgettable experience.

Vintage Miscellany

A 1904 single-cylinder Rover, with a channel-section chassis having very thin dumb-irons, awaits restoration in Wales, where a 1927 Morris-Cowley 2-seater and a 1930/32 Austin 12/4 saloon are derelict. Michael Sedgwick, Curator of the Montagu Motor Museum, has bought a 1934 Tipo 518L Fiat Ardita with a Steyr-Daimler-Puch cabriolet body. He wonders if any other Arditas are around? The Charles...

From the archives with... Doug Nye

More vintage, less whine There was a time when being Formula 1 world champion seemed to mean so much more than today When I was first hooked on motor racing, what turned out to be a life-changing image was a magazine photo shown to me by my big brother, Rod. It depicted Reg Parnell in the works Alfa Romeo 158 at Silverstone. ‘Uncle Reg’ was crouched behind the steering wheel, muscular arms...

A sense of perspective The Ferrari conundrum Farewell to a friend Back in 1964 three British drivers – Jim Clark, Graham Hill, John Surtees – went to the final Grand Prix, in Mexico, to settle the world championship. In the end the title went to Surtees, after Clark’s Lotus had led all the way until its engine seized on the last lap, and Hill’s BRM had been delayed by a coming-together with...

ZANDVOORT ZIDESLIPS

When Graham Hill came running into the pits on lap 22 we thought for a moment that he had the Lotus single-seater under his arm ! With the large and heavy Graham in a Lotus and "pea-sized " Lewis-Evans in a Vanwall we wonder if it is not time for British Grand Prix car constructors to think about driver-designs. The Dutch Grand Prix was a nice tidy race on a nice safe circuit and to help with the...

The Passage of Rarities

Back in the 1980s I was occasionally asked to buy classic and competition cars on behalf of the wealthy Japanese collector Yoshiyuki Hayashi. His pink Italya Trading sponsorship livery became quite familiar on assorted Group C cars, racing not only in Japan but also internationally. Those occasional commissions proved a useful avenue to my actually handling some great cars, and learning so much...

Notes on the cars in Austria

There was quite a lot of detail development work taking place during the Austrian Grand Prix practice periods, and on the day prior to official practice beginning. The 1972 Tyrrell, number 005, had been undergoing some stress testing in England and the chassis had been found wanting, so in order to relieve the situation temporarily the inboard-mounted front brakes had been discarded and...
