Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

Sportscar Survey

The World Championship of MakesOsterreichring, June 29th With victories in both of what will probably prove to be the last two rounds of the series, Alfa Romeo have won this year's World Championship for Makes, taking the title for the first time in their history. For the small crowd that witnessed the Austrian event however, it won't be the Italian conquest that sticks in their minds, but the...

World Sportscar Championship: Brands Hatch 1000kms

Lloyd does it again Last September Bob Wollek and Mauro Baldi won then first World Sportscar Championship race together, but there was no pleasure on their faces as they received the garlands at Spa; their Lancia had won a race shortened by the death of Stefan Bellof and celebrations were cancelled. At Brands Hatch in July there was nothing to mar the victory they achieved in the Liqui Moly...

Looking back with Peter Gethin

The winner of the fastest World Championship Grand Prix ever run talks to Motor Sport It was during his spell as a McLaren works driver, first with the Church Farm Racing M10A in Formula 5000 and later as a member of the Grand Prix team, that Peter Gethin fell in love with West Sussex, the area in which he now makes his home. "I used to drive down through this area when we went testing at...

Happy Birthday Porsche 911!

Twenty years ago, at the Frankfurt Auto Salon in 1963, Dr Ferry Porsche unveiled the Porsche 901 which, through an accident of fate, was renamed the 911 by the time it went into production 12 months later. The British public had its first sighting of the sports car destined for an illustrious career at Earls Court in October, and this month the most powerful normally aspirated version of the 911...

Targa Florio

Surprise Porsche win After fifty-six editions of the arduous Targa Florio, Sicily's Piccolo Madonie road circuit hosted what was touted as being the very last race over the open roads early in May. Next year, the CSI have not allowed it to be included in the International Calendar, the powers that be having run out of events to get excited about banning, and thus been forced to turn their...

Watkins Glen 6-Hours

Watkins Glen, July 13th: When a change of rules was announced for Group 5 sports cars, banning the 5-litre Porsches and Ferraris, the idea was to encourage a number of teams to run prototypes with 3-litre Grand Prix engines. Thus the racing would be more evenly matched and more interesting, so the CSI delegates believed, but in practice the theory has gone wildly wrong. In 1972, the first year of...

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,...

Group 5 Racing - Still in Good shape

Group 5 Racing—Still in Good Shape LONG-DISTANCE sports car racing has enjoyed a chequered career to say the least since its great days in the early Fifties, but six months ago endurance racing for the Group 5 prototypes seemed set for its worst ever year in 1975. Yet the first two rounds of the World Championship for Makes to be run in Europe, at Mugello on March 23rd and at Dijon on April 6th,...
