In the hot seat - Barrie Williams

He won in a car Jan Lammers thought too slow and could have been a rally star if he hadn't bid for the Land Speed Record. Just don't mention Roberto Moreno's grundies You were a winner in F3. Did you ever have any Fl aspirations? John Keen, Wolverhampton I suppose so, at least directly after winning in F3, but then my teammate Chris Lambert was killed at Zandvoort. That really affected me: I...

Classic encounters

There were star cars and drivers, but the Le Mans Classic also gave lesser-known machinery a chance to shine By David Addison Gulf Porsche 917, howling Matra 660, screaming Lola T280. All features of the Le Mans Classic. Saab 93? Yes, the three-cylinder 748cc car was welcomed to the event, too. In a world of historic motor racing where one can become blasé about the cars one sees regularly, the...

United States (East) Grand Prix

The Williams team gives it away Watkins Glen, October 7th As the United States (East) Grand Prix followed one week after the Canadian event in Montreal (reported elsewhere in this issue) it was a simple matter to load everything on transporters and trailers provided by the organisers and move the whole "circus" down to Watkins Glen, some 350 miles away. At the American circuit they were housed in...

Cotton on....

One leg good, two legs bad The ADAC's decision to hold the Nurburg 1000km World Championship race in two heats, each supposedly of 500km, proved extremely controversial and unpopular. The theory was good enough, to hold a race on Saturday evening running into darkness, and continuing it on Sunday afternoon, and in fine weather the format might almost have succeeded. FISA blessed the plan and the...

IMSA-Daytona 24 Hours

Justice done at Daytona For all their achievements in the past, neither Al Holbert nor Derek Bell had succeeded in winning the Daytona 24-Hours, but, with Al Unser Junior, they set the record straight on February 1st/2nd. The failure-rate of the cars was surprisingly high, only five of the 20 quickest machines reaching the finish, and none of the first six to cross the line did so without time-...

World Sportscar Championship: Nürburgring 1000kms

First win for Kouros Sauber-Mercedes The turbocharged, Mercedes V8-powered Kouros Sauber earned its first success in the World Sportscar Championship at the Nürburgring on August 24, Mike Thackwell having dominated proceedings with the help of Henri Pescarolo. Though the results reveal that Rothmans-Porsche and Silk Cut Jaguar lost all their cars it wasn't a hollow victory, for in dreadful...

Jaguar's Finest Day

The one nightmare shared by Jaguar's board members was the possibility of defeat at Le Mans. Last year the three entries were prepared beautifully, but lasted only 16 hours effectively, and even with five improved versions this time no-one could confidently predict success. If any Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-9LM was going to win, it was going to have to beat the Porsche 962C of Derek Bell, Hans Stuck and...

Jonathan Palmer's Brands top five

My first drive on a circuit: "At 17 I took myself along to Brands for an 'Initial Trial' event. I had an instructor called Syd Fox -- a big Formula Ford star to me! I still have the chit upon which he wrote. 'Too quick for first time but lots of potential'. He gave me 91 per cent." Failing scrutineering with my Sprite: "My Frogeye Sprite was run on a student grant - even the brake pads came from...

The year of the cat

Britain's soccer fans may not have created a good impression in Sardinia, but a vast army of 50,000 motor racing supporters who crossed the channel were well behaved and ecstatic with the 1-2 result achieved by the Silk Cut Jaguar team at Le Mans. They joined Tom Walkinshaw with fervour in singing the National Anthem and more than a few tears were shed... of happiness among those celebrating, of...

A foregone conclusion for Prost? - or will Schumacher spring a major surprise? Has there ever been a season in which there has been so much uncertainty even before the racing begins? Back in 1990, of course, Ayrton Senna was the bete noire of F1 after his outburst against FISA following the exclusion from victory in the Japanese GP that he always believed cost him that year's World Championship....
