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...

The ADAC 1000 Kilometres

Victory for Martini-Porsche Team Nurburgring, May 30th The ADAC 1,000-kilometre race was held only two weeks after the Targa Florio, so the Porsche teams were still licking their wounds and the Alfa Romeo team was very confident. As at the Targa Florio the Porsche factory loaned 908/03 models to their two main customers, the J.W. Automotive-Gulf team and Hans-Dieter Dechent's Martini...

Notes on the cars at Monaco

With the circuit being in the streets of the town there is no normal paddock at Monte Carlo and most of the teams base themselves in the large Renault garage in a side-street by the Automobile Club. The Ferrari team commandeered the basement for themselves, everyone else being crowded into the workshops at ground level. The only exceptions to this communal working were BRM, who were in a garage...

Lunch with... Derek Bell

He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

"Ban the Belgian GP"

DSJ comments on the cancellation of this year's Spa race This year is the 75th anniversary of the The Royal Automobile Club of Belgium, and they were forced to celebrate it without the traditional Belgian Grand Prix. This was no direct fault of the RACB but the culmination of a lot of hysterics and well-meaning actions by people and bodies who were never heard of in 1896 when the RACB was formed...

The Citroen SM

The best of two worlds The people behind the design and construction of Citroën cars are seldom, if ever, referred to by name, and in their own publicity material Citroën refer to "engineers in Citroën's research division". Little is heard about the research and development department of Citroën cars, and even less about the design department. The whole firm must be chock-ablock with brilliant...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...

The German Grand Prix

Well done Regazzoni Nürburgring, August 4th: For what it was worth the German Grand Prix was given the title of the European Grand Prix this year, a dubious honour it last received in 1968. As long as it remains a 14 mile-per-lap drive round the Eifel mountains the Nürburgring will always remain the Nürburgring, no matter how much it is smoothed out, widened or made easier, for the better the...

Formula Two Review

Rouen, June 28th It seemed almost too good to be true when Hubert Hahne finally broke BMW's Formula Two duck at Hockenheim on June 14, but better was to come a fortnight later at Rouen-les-Essarts. Once again a BMW won, but this time the victory was somehow more convincing, for although the race was a slipstreamer the quality of the entry was much higher. The winner was Jo Siffert, who, like...
