Modern times

Simon Taylor If you're one of those who believes that Formula One is about politics, rather than racing, you've had a good month. In Montreal, a war of words erupted between Minardi's chief minnow Paul Stoddard and F1 grandees Ron Dennis and Sir Frank Williams, with Stoddard threatening to protest any team retaining traction control from the British Grand Prix onwards.

Veteran to classic -- VSCC Speed Trials

Goodwood Festival of Speed

"Just look at that!” gasps Derek Bell, diverting my attention from the startline to the view on our right.
