Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey! By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

On the limit, off message

Jody Scheckter is the most misunderstood and under-appreciated Champion. He's remembered mostly via a handful of snapshot moments, but now it's time, writes David Malsher, to pull his career into focus Ferrari had romanced him. He had joined as its number one; Gilles was its number two. All seemed in order... until South Africa, of all places. The third grand prix of the 1979 season witnessed...

Double Scotch

In the first of an occasional series about great privateer race teams, Gordon Cruickshank remembers Ecurie Ecosse, the National team with International appeal and two Le Mans wins National racing teams don't usually inspire loyalties outside their own country, for obvious reasons. But the tale of Ecurie Ecosse, proudly Scottish from beginning to end, is one which inspired support right across...

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....

IMSA GTP championship

Night and day! Derek Bell's particular blend of skill and good luck earned him his third victory at Daytona, and his eighth 24-hour race laurels in all, in the opening round of the 1989 IMSA GTP Championship. The Pagham driver's personal technique and car sympathy can only be one factor in this phenomenal record of victories; the other is to be in the right car at the right time, with co-drivers...

Unlucky Jim

Brother Jackie eventually took all the plaudits, but it was Jimmy Stewart who first staked a claim to racing success. Eric Dymock recalls life with the fastest fraternity in Scotland A wintry day at Oulton Park in 1962 seemed unlikely to be the stuff of racing history. The chill wind of recession was biting. Club events had yet to feel the warmth of sponsorship and there was little prospect of...

One-hit wanderer -- Richie Ginther

Richie Ginther managed just one GP win: a decade later the American was a nomadic hippy. Richard Heseltine tells the story of a man apart Enigmatic doesn't come close. A loner, with long hair and Zapata moustache, spends a decade roaming North America, a nomad with a van and a compass but no clock as he doesn't want to be ruled by time. No provincial small-town boy here, though; he's learned,...

Jim Clark – March 4 1936 to April 7 1968

The hamlets of Chirnside and Duns nestle into the mellow countryside of Scotland's Border region, mere miles from the northernmost boundary of England. The homesteads have names such as Mill Farm, West Fouldron, New Mains. Or Jim Clark's Edington Mains. This was the haven from which the reluctant racer sallied forth on his forays to the far reaches of the motorsport world - to Zandvoort, Warwick...

Stirling qualities

Ian Stewart beat Moss – but then followed a very different career path. By Eric Dymock When Ian Stewart defeated Stirling Moss at Charterhall in the October of 1952, Bill Boddy was astonished. Both drivers were in C-type Jaguars, Moss was approaching the top of his form, and even though Stewart might have had an advantage on a familiar track, this did not as a rule bother Moss. So there had to be...

The GP Mechanics Charitable Trust

Jackie Stewart is in full flow, warming to his theme. The thrice world champion has always been known as an astute businessman in his own right, but he's quite happy to allow others the benefit of his considerable acumen. Perched in the back of the Paul Stewart Racing motorhome at Spa, his mind is on The Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable Trust, a scheme he piloted in February 1987. "The way I see...
