National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

Track test -- Unipart March 783 Dolomite

Something different in Formula Three Formula Three in whatever guise has a good pedigree for producing the next generation of Grand Prix drivers. Occasionally the top Formula Three man will go straight from what is now a 2-litre category into Formula One, the latest example being the career of Nelson Piquet, who dominated the British championship scene before making his debut with the Brabham GP...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club Scene Astonishing Russian If I had suggested a year ago that a Russian car was going to win two British racing championships I would have been considered, at the very least, something of an optimist. When the Group 1 regulations were announced few would have foreseen that there was any hope of the Moskvich 412 being remotely competitive. Apart, that is, from Satra...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club Scene Rondel F2 Car Announced Several months ago in this column we announced the news that the go-ahead Formula Two team, Rondel Racing, had formed an alliance with Denys Dobbie and that with his backing they would construct and race their own Formula Two car and, possibly, also a Formula One. Since then Rondel have recruited Ray Jessop from Motor Racing...

Historic Preparation

Unlike today's Formula One teams, who have to begin preparation for the next season as soon as the present one is finished, those people involved in historic car racing have a clear period of some months in the winter to prepare for the next season. We paid a visit to some of the places where historic cars are being rebuilt or overhauled in readiness for "old car racing" in 1980, whether it be...

Ian Taylor British motor racing was dealt a sharp shock on June 7, when news filtered through that Ian Taylor had lost his life while competing in the Rover 216 GTi Challenge at Spa. He was 45. Taylor achieved much in a long career. He was the first ever Formula Ford Festival winner, in 1972, and the following year won the Forward Trust F3 Championship in his Baty March. He planned to move up to...

International Trophy

Silverstone return.—Jackie Stewart returned to Silverstone for the first time in two years and scored a very convincing victory in the International Trophy meeting for Team Tyrrell. Here he has just passed an unhappy Mike Hailwood (Surtees TS14) at Club Corner, while, in the background, can be seen Emerson Fittipaldi's abandoned Lotus 72 which retired on the first lap when the flywheel sheared....

They Make Racing Cars—Maxiperenco Products

Andrew Duncan lay in hospital after an almighty accident at Mallory Park, in a Formula Three Alexis he was racing for the first time, and decided that, after all, he was never going to be World Champion. Perhaps his talents lay more in the design and construction of racing cars. Several years earlier he had built his first racing car, naturally enough a 750 Special, while still at school. During...

Oulton outing

D.S.J. endorsed my own belief when, reporting on the South African Grand Prix, he said that every Renault owner from humble R5 to V6 saloon must have thought (after seeing René Arnoux win in the RE21) "Man, look at these Renault cars, aren't they something", and that the Renault F1 success must have "influenced a lot of people that Renault was the car to buy". Thinking that, to a lesser extent,...
