The Battles Continues . . .

The Battle Continues . . . THE new season of World Sportscar Championship racing which begins at Suzuka on April 8th shows every promise of being the finest in the history of Group C competitions, dating back to 1982, and will be if FISA doesn't throw its huge spanner in the works. In particular, the 24-Hours of Le Mans would be, and should be one of the most competitive events since 1923, and...

Question over open-top cars

The new-for-2014 rulebook for the Le Mans 24 Hours could spell the end for the open-top prototype. One of the proposals is that the new breed of prototype, which will be smaller and lighter than the current cars, will have to be a coupé. This would bring to an end the long Le Mans tradition, interrupted only by the Group C era, of allowing open and closed prototypes to race together. Open and...

Jody Scheckter - Better than trophies

Silverware doesn't mean much to me but the cars I raced through the '70s do. They are prized relics of my old life and each has a story of its own. They're not a bad investment, either By Damien Smith The past is of little relevance to Jody Scheckter. He lives in the moment, so buffalo, mozzarella and ice-cream fill most of his waking thoughts — and probably his dreams, too. Laverstoke Park, his...

Gulf wins "economy" Le Mans

The combination of a fuel-consumption formula (all the cars had to run for 20 laps or more without refuelling), the absence of many graded drivers, and—worst—the lack of Matra, Alpine, Ferrari or Alfa Romeo prototypes, all combined to make this year's Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans decidedly a non-event, and the spectators reacted by staying away in their thousands.
