Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany.

Ferrari has two, its president and...

Rally Review

Monte Carlo Rally Throughout Europe in the past few years, rallying has steadily become so sophisticated that it is almost beyond comparison with the adventurous, shovel-laden journeys of pre-war and even post-war years. As rally crews have become more skilled, and professionalism more prevalent, so have the cars developed from well stocked and equipped production line models to powerful...

Morocco Rally

A combination of several circumstances resulted in a drastic reduction in the quality of the entry for this year's Morocco Rally. Normally well supported by the French manufacturers, the event only attracted Alpine-Renault this time, the Dieppe-based team running away with victory without too much effort. Citroen used to work on the principle that their cars would show up best on the rougher...

1971 British Grand Prix race report - Stewart and Tyrrell again

  Although the British Grand Prix does not have a long and venerable history, like the French Grand Prix, it does have the distinction of being held continuously since 1948, mostly at the Silverstone airfield circuit; with occasional digressions to Aintree and Brands Hatch. There were some British Grand Prix races held at Brooklands in the twenties, but they died along with any influence we had...

John Davenport looks back on the 'Rally of the Flowers' If Julius Caesar had been writing this article, he might well have started by saying that the San Remo Rally's history was divided into five parts: the Prologue, the Flowers, the Marriage, the Independence and the Asphalt.

Mexican knave

With looks you had to learn to love, and a chassis you have to learn to exploit, Ferrari’s 340 Mexico was a specialised device. Andrew Frankel relives the 1952 Carrera PanAmerica You cannot imagine what it's like in here. First of all it is appallingly hot. The air is thick with heat and the stench of oil, as it fills my lungs without fulfilling my need for oxygen. I can't open the windows, which...
