Italian Grand Prix

Eight left.—By half-distance there were eight cars remaining in the battle for the lead at Monza. The winning Ferrari of Clay Regazzoni is about to move up past Jack Oliver's BRM and the leading March of Jackie Stewart. Following are HuIme (McLaren), Stommelen (Brabham), Beltoise ((Matra), Cevert (March) and Brabham (Brabham). Brabham spun off and hit a barrier when his engine unexpectedly cut...

100 years of the Tour de France

The automotive marathon has a stop-go past, but has settles into a new historic format. John Davenport hitched a centenary lift. When all the celebrations have died down and the years of the new Millennium start to tick by, the world of motoring will be inundated with centenaries of one kind or another. But one historic event, at least, has managed to observe its centenary before the Millennium...

The year of the cat

Britain's soccer fans may not have created a good impression in Sardinia, but a vast army of 50,000 motor racing supporters who crossed the channel were well behaved and ecstatic with the 1-2 result achieved by the Silk Cut Jaguar team at Le Mans. They joined Tom Walkinshaw with fervour in singing the National Anthem and more than a few tears were shed... of happiness among those celebrating, of...

Hard and fast

Jacky Ickx was blindingly quick in the wet and a man who raced purely for the satisfaction of winning. Although he has long since retired from racing, he never forgets the passion of the fans and all the people who worked behind the scenes to make possible his many victories in sports cars and single-seaters By Rob Widdows Jacques-Bernard Ickx is a complicated man. The thinking man’s racing...

Le Mans 24hrs:

Le Mans, June 19th, predictable but interesting Having celebrated the 50th running of Le Mans last year, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest did not make such a fanfare about the 60th anniversary of the 24-hour race, though the parade of old cars and previous winners has now become a regular and popular feature of the preliminaries. Porsches dominated the entry list with 11 of their type 956 Group C...

History lesson

The first Le Mans 24 Hours took place in 1923, and this year the 60th edition will be run. The race was not held in 1936 due to strikes, nor between 1940 and 1948. Two chicanes were introduced to the ligne droit des Hunoudieres, better known to the British as the Mulsanne Straight, in 1990, slightly increasing the circuit length to 13.60 kilometres (8.45 miles). Maximum speeds were reduced, from...

Alfa Romeo takes Championship Lead

AFTER THE relatively new, modern autodromes of Mugello and Dijon, the stage scenery for the fourth and fifth rounds of the World Championship for Makes was changed to two long-established, classic circuits: Monza and Spa. Both are steeped in tradition, having an ambience that the new tracks can hardly hope to have attained yet, and both are very, very fast, even though there is now a permanent,...

Jochen Rindt As a devotee of Messrs Cook & Moore, I recently learned with horror that most episodes of Not Only… But Also are lost for ever. Back then the BBC would re-use tapes, and Pete and Dud were later submerged by the Horse of the Year Show. It gets worse, too, for Jochen Rindt's mesmeric drive in the 1970 Monaco Grand Prix apparently suffered a similar fate. I was in the Principality,...

Porsche 959

For a car that has yet to be driven by a customer, the Porsche 959 has generated an inordinate amount of publicity. It first appeared at the 1981 Frankfurt Show as a "Studie", then at the 1983 Frankfurt Show as the "Gruppe B" virtually in definitive form. In January 1984 a comparatively primitive form of all-wheel drive was fitted to the Paris-Dakar winning 911, and in January 1986 the much more...

World Sportscar Championship: Spa 1000kms

Silk Cut Jaguar beaten by a length! To the delight of the Belgian crowd, but to the chagrin of the Silk Cut Jaguar team, Thierry Boutsen won the Spa 1,000 Kilometre race by a scant 0.8 seconds, both his Brun Porsche and Derek Warwick's XJR-6 spluttering on their last drops of fuel as they crossed the line nose-to-tail after five and a half hours of close combat. Excitement heightened as the last...
