It was 40 years ago today

Believe it or not, our Editor-in-Chief's first reporting job was at the 1971 Spanish Grand Prix. There followed a memorable season the first of many... By the spring of 1971 things were starting to get a little desperate. Since leaving school six years earlier I had worked in industry and hated every second of it, to the point that the previous summer I had resigned from my job, reasoning that...

Targa Florio

Road impressions: Vegantune Evante
