Derek Bell – Enzo: his part in my downfall

There are few might-have-beens in this man’s distinguished career. But riding the Prancing Horse, then slipping off into sports cars might have been a mistake. Not a huge one – the lure of the red cars was irresistible, but a catch that somehow slipped through his fingers. Hindsight, though, brings clarity of vision… This is the man who started as a marshal at Goodwood, won his first ever race in...

Nurburg 1,000 kms

An eventful race Nurburgring May 29th. The last World Championship race ever to be held at the Nurburgring resulted, predictably and deservedly, in a win for Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass in a Rothmans-Porsche 956. Deservedly because the Belgian's name has been almost synonymous with the nordschleife circuit (as it is with Le Mans and Spa) since the day in 1967 when he threatened to make a mockery...

Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hours

Déjà vu Francorchamps July 26th/27th Late July and the Ardennes forest echoes once again to the night and day chatter of 80-100,000 Europeans watching the survivors of 50 starters in the 32nd annual 24-hour saloon car race. It is an event that has changed a great deal in the last three years, but the result in 1980 is the same as 1979. The same marque, prepared by the same British specialists....

50th Le Mans 24 hour race

JACKY ICKX and Derek Bell notched up another victory in the classic 24 hour race at Le Mans last month. Driving a 956 Porsche, they took over the lead in the ninth hour, but did not have things entirely their own way, suffering from a mixture problem which caused a misfire and later from a puncture which eroded their five lap lead to two. The first hours of the race were the most interesting,...

Enzo Ferrari's Magnificent Machines

A complex man, few were ever allowed much more than a glimpse into the inner persona of the enigmatic Enzo Ferrari. But to understand his character properly, it is rarely necessary to look further than the nosecone of one his cars, and essentially from behind the steering wheel. For Ferrari the car was and remains Ferrari the man. An automotive legend both enjoyed and burdened by the evocative...

Gulf swing in fortune

The one that got away David Hobbs: 1969 Le Mans 24 Hours Everyone remembers the closest racing finish at Le Mans – but it should have been for second place, David Hobbs tells Adam Cooper Le Mans of 1969 is rightly remembered for its dramatic finish, but while Jacky Ickx and Hans Herrmann were the heroes after 24 hours, many other drivers felt that the race could have been theirs. That's no...

Reflections– Will the real Schumacher please stand up?– Crazy mirrors and commonsense stewards– Jacky Ickx – one of a kind in motor racing There was a time, 30 or so years ago, when Formula 1 seemed to be very French, thanks mainly to the efforts of Elf, which was then deeply involved in motor racing and sold on the notion that Gallic drivers should proliferate. Jabouille, Arnoux, Laffite,...

REFLECTIONS Oh Canada! F1 return welcomed on all sides A roar of V8 power in tribute to Bruce McLaren Red Bull spin can't disguise driver favouritism Everyone agreed it was a delight to be back in Montreal, there having been no race in 2009, of course, after Bernie Ecclestone and the race organisers had failed to reach a financial accommodation. At the time the teams and sponsors were outraged...
