The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

Notes on the cars at Kyalami

Lotus: The Martini Team Lotus produced a brand new car for Andretti, Lotus 79/5 (or ML 23 by the factory’s odd numbering!) to exactly the same specification as the previous cars, and presumably put together during breaks from finishing off the first Lotus 80. Reutemann still had Lotus 79/2 and Andretti’s previous car 79/4 was the team spare. All three carried the name ESSEX on the sides, the name...

Mass and lckx Win Economy Run

Early last year there was a terrible shemozzle in the sports car world when FISA decided at short notice to "do a deal" with the American IMSA organisation. They scrapped the proposed fuel economy rules for a start, requiring a 15% reduction in the amount available for a 1,000 kilometre event, to 510 litres, and the works Porsche team was so upset that it withdrew its cars from Le Mans. All that...

Austrian Grand Prix

“Blow up James! No be sensible and settle for a good second place.” These were the alternating thoughts going through the mind of Shadow DN8 driver Alan Jones for much of the 54-lap Austrian Grand Prix at the Osterreichring on August 14. The 30-year-old Australian driver, son of early post-war Australian ace Stan Jones (winner of the first New Zealand Grand Prix), had moved the Shadow into second...

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. There are exceptions here and there, but largely this has been interpreted as the...

Hidden Glory, The Story of the Crosslé Car Company Alan Tyndall Other volume racing car manufacturers have cultivated higher profiles – March, Lola, Van Diemen and Reynard, to name but four – but one of the UK’s most engaging cottage industries has been ravaged by one-make myopia and many famous names have either gone to the wall or else simply faded away as custom dried up. But not Crosslé. For...

Formula Two review

Tragedy and disorganisation at Rouen The annual Formula Two race at the impressive Rouen Les Essarts road circuit has always been a favourite. The track itself is fast and extremely challenging, the surroundings are extremely pleasant and the meeting has always had a relaxed air. This year it was rather different and a shadow was placed over the whole proceedings by the death in practice of the...

Luck, skill and compatibility

Interview Derek Bell MBE, the reigning World Sportscar Champion, won Le Mans 24-Hour race in June for the fifth time. This is an achievement exceeded by only one man (his former driving partner Jacky Ickx, who had six successes – three of them with Bell) and, at the age of 45, Bell is by far Britain's most successful sportscar driver. After the race, the Englishman talked to us about luck, skill...

Lancia and De Virgilio, At the Center Geoffrey Goldberg When I drove a Lancia Aurelia I was astonished at how sophisticated it was. Much of the credit belongs to Francesco De Virgilio, a brilliant Lancia engineer whose career spanned wartime scout vehicles up to the LC2 GpC prototype. Engineers aren’t much in the spotlight, so it takes a book like this to illuminate the hidden genius of a man...

Letters

Letter of the month Fear of the past? Watching coverage of the German GP qualifying session, I was struck by how poorly F1 connects with its past. The Sky team made brief mention of the old Hockenheim, Jim Clark’s death and John Surtees winning in Germany, but their focus is on the here and now. I don’t blame broadcasters for that, but F1 should do far more to connect with the history of the...
