All the wolds a stage... Cadwell Park, June 22: the perfect alternative to a cancelled ’Ring trip When I awoke this morning, the first thing I heard was a cuckoo…” The Historic Sports Car Club’s CEO Grahame White seemed rather pleased about his unexpected alarm call, one that perfectly summarised the appeal of Cadwell Park and its surrounding Wolds. My original weekend plan had been to attend the...

Phoenix in waiting A distinctive 1960s racer is coming under the hammer, but will need lashings of TLC I will declare an interest. I offer consultancy advice (often justifiably ignored) to auctioneer Bonhams, whose Goodwood Festival of Speed sale includes some real rarities. Among these are the (hopefully) still restorable remains of a uniquely significant ex-Jim Clark sports-racing car – the...

Lunch with... David Brodie

It gets almost all of the media coverage, almost all of the money and virtually all of the glory. A whole new generation of people who think of...

Returning to Indy, Monaco’s faded glamour, Rosberg’s guile Sometimes,” wrote Henry Manney in Road and Track half a century ago, “I wish I was in Indianapolis.
