1998 - The essential guide to the season

The return of racing to Goodwood may be the highpoint of the 1998 Historic motorsport season, but as Marcus Pye reports, it’s just one of many exciting dates over the coming year. There is a new arrival on the Historic motor racing scene in 1998, and it is already the talk of the motorsport fraternity. The reopening of Goodwood circuit in September, 50 years to the day after it first hosted car...

The Unpopular Brazilian

Sir, Ayrton Senna proved conclusively in Japan that he can never be considered a 'Great' of Formula One alongside such names as Jack Brabharn, Jim Clark, Ronnie Peterson and Gilles Villeneuve etc. He may well be devastatingly fast, but he achieves this by driving like a dangerous lunatic with no regard for his own or fellow drivers' safety, and with nil sense of sportsmanship in contrast to his...

U.S. oil barren

Just over a year on from his debut in Formula One, a young scotsman astounded Brickyard regulars with his speed. Racecraft and refusal to cry over spilt milk Jackie Steward is better known for winning than losing, but there's one glaring omission from his impressive CV. With just eight laps to go, victory in the 1966 Indy 500 slipped from his grasp; the wee Scot would never come so close again....

Ferraris and Maseratis star at Brands Birthday bash

The celebrations of 75 years of Brands Hatch history and 50 years since Ferrari's first grand prix win were dovetailed superbly at the Kent circuit in July. A crowd of around 25,000 was treated to an entertaining blend of racing, both ancient and modern. Guests included Ferrari F1 technical director Ross Brawn, Sir Stirling Moss and three times world champion Sir Jack Brabham. Of particular note...

15th Grand Prix of Siracusa

Ferrari has a try-out—and wins Siracusa, Sicily, May 1st. Unlike certain British racing circuits, the Ente Autonomo Circuit Siracusa was undeterred as putting on the first Grand Prix in Europe for the new Formula One and ran their traditional 56-lap (308 kilometres) race, inviting an entry of 14 cars. Ferrari sent John Suttees with the new 3-litre V12-cylinder car and Lorenzo Bandini with the car...

Legends - Rob Walker

The scene: the Glen Motor Inn, Watkins Glen. The date: September 1979. I am sitting at a table with a couple of colleagues, and studying the menu, unable to make up my mind. From across the room, another diner offers advice: "Nigel, don't have the fish, I beg of you!" In the days after Rob Walker's death, all who knew him spent hours on the phone, simply reminiscing. It was impossible not to be...

Six.wheel Tyrrell stars at Paul Ricard

The stunning debut of Simon Bull's six-wheeled Tyrrell P3 - driven by Martin Stretton at France's Paul Ricard circuit over Easter - suggests champion Bob Berridge will not have an easy ride in the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship. Despite minimal test mileage on Avon's experimental 10in front tyres, 1996 champion Stretton qualified the ex-Ronnie Peterson car within 0.19sec of Berridge's...

The Aintree 200 — April 18th

This year's Aintree 200 race differed from last year's in being increased in distance from 200 kilometres to 200 miles, and the field was augmented by the inclusion of a section for Formula Two cars, as used to be the case in the days of the 2½-litre F.1 and 1½-litre F.2. For a change Aintree was bathed in sunshine on race day and despite a brisk breeze a reputed 50,000 crowd filled the stands to...

Looking Back with Bruce Halford

Looking Back with Bruce Halford WHEN CONSIDERING the astronomic sums of money which several current Grand Prix teams state is necessary to maintain and operate their cars throughout a full Formula One season it becomes quickly evident just why there are very few privateers around trying to race in this exalted category. If they do try to compete, it is frequently with outdated and uncompetitive...

mclaren international

McLaren International 1984 WHEN Bruce McLaren left the Cooper team and started his own company, called Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Limited, his main interest was Formula One racing, and though his team made a good name for itself at Indianapolis and in Can-Am racing, Bruce always insisted on Formula One being its major activity. He could see that technically Formula One was ahead of any other sort...
