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...

Around and About

Tourist Trophy, Silverstone September 18th is the chosen date for Britain’s only qualifying round in the European Touring Car Championship 1977. A series dominated by BMW’s big coupes since the withdrawal of the Ford Capris, Silverstone will mark the first anniversary of Leyland Cars’ efforts to displace the Munich straight sixes with Coventry V 12s. Yes, the troubled Jaguars will be out once...

Notes on the Cars in Austria

Making notes about the Ferrari ears at the Osterreichring was quite simple; there were no Ferrari cars. After the German Grand Prix the Commendatore withdrew his team, ostensibly for the rest of the 1976 season, for reasons dealt with elsewhere. The March team had to undertake one of their biggest rebuilding programmes ever, after the Nurburgring. The cars of Brambilla and Peterson were virtually...

Nigel Roebuck's legends

It is 30 years since Niki Lauda's fiery crash left him hovering between life and death; 40 days later he raced again, and finished fourth in a grand prix. It was an extraordinary feat of determination and personal bravery Monza. The 2006 Italian Grand Prix is a few days away as I write, and 30 years have passed since the most remarkable happening I have ever encountered in motor racing. In the '...

Formula Two review

After three rounds in what looks like being a tough year of Formula Two, there have been three different winners, in three different makes of car and using three different types of engine. The European championship was predictably being led by the little Frenchman Rene Arnoux in his Martini Renault but a number of very promising young newcomers to the FIA championship have emerged. These drivers...

Notes on the Cars at Jarama

With the Spanish GP opening the season for Formula One Championship races in Europe there was a lot of pre-race testing going on at the little Jarama circuit and some of it was useful for the race itself and some was purely experimental. Since Porsche revealed last year that they had been racing cars with solid rear axles, that is with no differential unit, relying on the distortion in the tyres...

Around and About

Around and About Leyland Return to Competitions LEYLAND CARS ("please forget the 'British' bit now") have returned to competitions officially with a three-tier programme encompassing rallying, national touring-car racing and a saloon-car formula.

Derek Bell discusses the cars he has driven in competitions

A career that starts with a Lotus Seven on the 13th of March, 1964 and continues with unabated enthusiasm in 1979 will obviously encompass a variety of racing machinery and a disregard for superstition. In 37-year-old Derek Bell's case substitute for "variety" the word "plethora" and, forgetting our usual conservative use of the English language, see if we can slip in the generally over-used "...

Notes on the Cars at Monte Carlo

There was nothing startlingly new at Monte Carlo, but quite a lot of detail improvements and modifications to existing cars. However, the Scuderia Ferrari produced a brand new 312T2 car, number 027 in the series, and this was given to Regazzoni. The first of the T2 cars, number 025, was relegated to the role of "muletta" or the team spare. Lauda was still with his usual car, number 026, and as...

FIA Graded Drivers

With the arrival of the official FIA Yellow Book for 1979, containing all the rules and regulations for International events of all categories (see page 150), we have the list of drivers who have made the top grade. This year's elite is a bit of a mish-mash containing Grand Prix drivers, the winner of the Indianapolis 500 and those who have been successful in the rather emaciated world of Long...
