Survival of the fittest

Last March the All-American Racers Toyota Eagle Mk3 won the Sebring 12 Hours, but doubts remained that the little 2.1-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine could last around the clock. It did so admirably at Daytona on January 30/31 as PJ Jones, Mark Dismore and Rocky Moran won the Rolex 24 Hours with ease, despite a 74-minute pit stop on Sunday morning while the transaxle was changed. Anyone...

Kenseth and Roush return to form

Matt Kenseth’s victory in this year’s Daytona 500 was very fulfilling for both the driver and Jack Roush’s Roush Fenway Ford team. It was the first win at Daytona for the 2003 NASCAR champion and Roush’s long-standing squad, which is looking like a championship contender once more this year, especially after Kenseth won again in California the following weekend. Roush Fenway fields no fewer than...

When the chips are up

He had success behind the wheel, but Chip Ganassi has really won big as a team owner In recent years Chip Ganassi has emerged as the only American team owner to rival the wide breadth of Roger Penske's achievements in motor racing. That may be presumptuous to say because Penske has long set the standard for American racing, not only in preparation and presentation, but also by winning many races...

IMSA -- Daytona 24-Hours

The Perfectionist The Daytona 24-Hour race began as a test of speed and ended as a feat of endurance won, not unexpectedly, by Porsche. With the factory teams of Jaguar, Nissan and Toyota out of contention on Sunday morning it was left to Reinhold Joest, the perfectionist, to orchestrate the success. . . . the 18th Porsche win at Daytona since 1968, and perhaps the hardest to achieve. The drivers...

Gordon Kirby – The US Scene

Toyota: the cars in front Kyle Busch has emerged this year as the man to beat in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series. The 23-year-old won five of the season’s first 16 NASCAR races and has taken a strong lead in the championship, more than 200 points clear of his closest rivals. In his fourth year in NASCAR’s premier division and his first with Joe Gibbs’ Toyota team, Busch has been a contender to win...

Daytona 500

This year's Daytona 500 was an epic, delayed by rain for a day and a half and finally run on a Monday evening. Just before the 400-mile mark a bizarre accident occurred under a yellow flag when Juan Pablo Montoya's car suffered a transmission failure resulting in Montoya slewing into a jet fuel-powered track-drying truck. The collision destroyed Montoya's car and caused the dryer, containing...

Edwards racks up the race wins

Through the final half-dozen NASCAR Sprint Cup races of 2008, Jimmie Johnson’s biggest challengers were the Roush Fenway Fords driven by Carl Edwards (above) and Greg Biffle. Jack Roush’s operation runs no fewer than five cars and won the championship with Matt Kenseth in 2003 and Kurt Busch in ’04. These days, Roush Fenway is Ford’s only front-running team. Edwards began to challenge Kyle Busch...

The best of his era

Gordon Kirby In mid-summer, after 18 of 36 SPRINT Cup races, five-time champion Jimmie Johnson held a strong if not commanding lead in this year’s NASCAR championship. Johnson had won four times and led more than 1000 laps, demonstrating his dominance many times and proving a factor in most events. No other form of motor racing enjoys the tremendous depth of competition boasted by NASCAR and you...

Letters

Sir, John Barnard is rightly credited with the first carbon-fibre monocoque for the Chaparral 2K, but it is hardly surprising that this marque should have been receptive to the material when Jim Hall and Hap Sharp had built a complete glassfibre chassis for their mid-engine Chaparral 2 sports car in 1963. The company had first run a chin spoiler on the Chaparral 1 in the 1962 season and used one...
