Notes on the Cars at Buenos Aires

Ferrari: As with many other teams curing the winter, the Ferrari factory took three of their 1979 cars and dismantled them down to the last rivet and then built up new and redesigned cars from the bare bones. The cars they dismantled were 312T4/037, 039 and 041 and the new cars that resulted were 312T5/042, 043 and 044 of which Scheckter took the first, Villeneuve the second and third was the T-...

The Formula One Scene

Normally by now the Formula One scene for the forthcoming season is signed and sealed, but this year there are still a lot of loose ends yet to be tied up, in particular with Team Lotus, Frank Williams and the Brabham team. Ferrari have no problems and their two drivers, Scheckter and Villeneuve, have been pounding round the Fiorano test-track, with the young French-Canadian consistently the...

Memorable for the Wrong Reason

History has a nasty habit of repeating itself, as the World Championship sports car teams were reminded when they went to Canada. The first and last time Group C was run in Canada, 50 races ago in August 1985, the Jaguar XJR-6 made its debut at Mosport but the occasion was overshadowed by the accident which took the life of Manfred Winkelhock. This year, in September, the Peugeot 905 made its...

Notes on the cars at Long Beach

Lotus: Team Lotus had problems with their new Type 8o so the idea of taking it to the Californian race was abandoned and they relied on their three trusty Type 79 cars, numbers 2, 4 and 5, the first for Reutemann, the second as the spare (adjusted for Andretti) and the last for Andretti to race. The teething problems with the Type 80 were not serious, but the street-racing of the United States GP...

World Sportscar Championship: Jerez 360 kms

Jaguar fiasco at Jerez Derek Warwick and Paul Frère have one thing in common: thirty years ago the talented Belgian dashed Jaguar's hopes at Le Mans by spinning his works D-type at the Esses and involving team-mate Jack Fairman, though on that occasion Ecurie Ecosse saved the day for the Coventry marque. At Jerez on August 3 Warwick made a dubious piece of history by having all three Silk Cut...

In the age before Bute

Johnny Dumfries made it to F1 and won Le Mans before returning to his duties as the Marquess of Bute. He talks to Marquess, er, Marcus Simmons Tap the name 'Johnny Dumfries' into any internet search engine and you get the grand prix encyclopaedia pages. You're told that he was born in a castle and that he is now a talented painter. So you get this image of a bloke who, either side of a racing...

Golden days (and nights) at Daytona

Florida’s sports car classic celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. Out of some great finishes during that half-century, we pick 10 stand-out races The origins of the Daytona 24 Hours can be found in the name of the track that this month celebrates the 50th birthday of the event. NASCAR founder Bill France Sr had christened the giant facility that emerged from the Florida scrub in 1958 the...

World Sportscar Championship: Spa 480kms

Half a crown Half a litre of fuel, or the lack of it, was all that prevented Jean-Louis Schlesser from leaving Spa as the World Champion sportscar driver. Perhaps due to a minor mishap in the Sauber Mercedes pit, the Parisian set off for the last part of the race with the tank not quite filled, and this led to the team's first retirement of the 1989 season. Bad luck for Schlesser, but the best...

Three's company

Weaving in and out of the bright new lights of the GT era, Peugeot and Toyota slugged it out for overall honours at Le Mans. After a fierce early struggle, there was a one-sided outcome Testing. There had been a lot of that, four or five endurance trials each for Peugeot and Toyota in recent months. The 905s and TS010s have this year covered a greater distance at the Paul Ricard circuit than in...

Toyota's own goal

Toyota will look back on the Silverstone 500 km race as a fairly spectacular own goal. Two weeks previously, the day after the Monza fiasco in fact, the BRDC proposed to reduce the British event, the second round of the Sportscar World Championship, to a mere 200 km. TOM'S Toyota objected so strongly that the race ran its full distance, and was won by Derek Warwick and Yannick Dalmas in a Peugeot...
