1969, '71 & '73 Jackie Stewart

My first memory of seeing Jackie Stewart is at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting in 1964: a small trim man, talking to a pretty girl – Helen, his wife – with a scarf tied around her head. They were standing by their car, a green Mini. That day Stewart, driving Ken Tyrrell’s Cooper-BMC, won the Formula 3 race beating Chris Irwin’s Merlyn. There was at first an innocence about him – a small-town boy...

Reflections in the Monte Carlo harbour

Once the social party that surrounds the Monaco Grand Prix had dispersed and all the hired yachts had left it was possible to look into the waters of the harbour with a cool clear eye. For a moment I thought I saw a red Lancia D50 lying on the bottom, alongside a green Lotus-Climax, but I soon realised it was only my memory playing me tricks, for with the iron guard rails along the edge of the...

Elf magic

Sir, As an ex-employee of Elf Oil UK Ltd and Lotus Cars, I thought that with the impending demise of the brand we know in the UK as Elf— it's being swallowed up by Total — this might be a good time to run a feature outlining the involvement Elf has had over the past 30 years in motorsport.

Rothmans World Championships Victory Race

Brands Hatch, October 24th. When the Mexican Grand Prix was cancelled Brands Hatch's idea of holding a Formula One race on the same date to bolster up the already heavy Motor Show 200 meeting programme seemed an excellent idea.
