Taking the strain

Until lap 16 of the fifth round of the European F3000 Championship, the German GP support race at Hockenheim, David Coulthard appeared to be heading for an eight-point championship lead. Six days earlier, the Scot had taken his first F3000 victory at Enna, in bizarre circumstances of a kind which are unique to the outmoded Sicilian circuit. In Germany, infused with confidence, David was driving,...

Johnny was a Bute

What a fantastic article detailing the career of Johnny Dumfries. He has long fascinated me as he not only raced in the era that I find the most interesting but has the added intrigue of being titled. For me he is exactly the sort of British driver that we never really saw the best of, and your article seems to bear that out. It brings to mind so many people from the late-70s or early-80s who had...

The Pearl Of Warwick

You have to sympathise with Jean Todt and the Peugeot Talbot Sport team. Winners of four Sportscar World Championship races this year, dominant at Le Mans, and confirmed as world champions in August, they find that paddock talk is confined to the paucity of entries, and the near certain demise of the series in October. Derek Warwick, who shares the drivers' championship with Yannick Dalmas,...

Real estate?

Almost 10 years on from its triumphant escapades in the defunct European Touring Car Championship, Volvo is coming back to the sport.The Swedish company's return is not without imagination . . . Tom Walkinshaw is not a man you'd choose as a poker opponent. The Scot, head of a vast business empire that includes motor racing preparation specialist TWR, gives little away when you're questioning him...

W.E.C.

Tom Walkinshaw's Jaguar XJR-6 sportscar team has achieved much in the space of four months, and earned its best result in Selangor, Malaysia on December 1 when Mike Thackwell, John Nielsen and Jan Lammers finished second overall, on the same lap as the Rothmans-Porsche 962C of winners Jacky lckx and Jochen Mass. Other than two or three minor setbacks during practice, usually attributable to the...

The Editor Brings Together — Two B & M Aston-Martins

The Bamford and Martin Aston-Martins were made a long time ago, in quite small numbers, but interest in them has never been greater, thanks to the research into their history by the AMOC. Justifiably, because they were hand-built sporting cars of immaculate conception that made a considerable contribution to British competition success.. Consequently, I thought it would be worthwhile to bring...

WS-PC Season Preview

"Economy Racing" Era to End In October the Group C sports car formula will follow Formula One into the new decade, ruled by 3.5-litre normally aspirated engines. The `economy' era, dictated by the need to make 51 litres of fuel last 100 kilometres, will be ended to the delight of most drivers but the mechanism to equalise the performances of production block, racing, turbocharged and normally...

Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams

With over 700 races and 250 rallies behind him, Williams continues to entertain on and off track No British race report is complete without a shot of a car ludicrously crossed up with Barrie Williams beaming through the window. Ruddyfaced, always chuckling, he seems to be everywhere at once in this, his 40th competition year. After leaving Hereford Cathedral School, he began rushing up Prescott...

Readers' Letters

Sorry for Silverstone Sir, So Bernie has finally carried out his threat and Silverstone is no longer ‘the home of British motor sport’. What a sad and dirty tale of bullying and big business this has been. For my part I am very disappointed. Living as I do within a stone’s throw of the track I have seen both what the Grand Prix has done for the region over the years, and also the huge strides...
