He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

All for one

Renault had never looked like winning Le Mans — its motorsport programme was too fragmented. That all changed in 1977, but it took another year for this revolution to take effect. Paul Fearnley explains why Judging by how far the man holding the microphone-on-a-stick jumps back as the car fires up, our fervent hope that this Le Mans-winner's turbo V6 might not bust today's noise limit has just...

A tidy prophet

The shiny decals of Rondel Racing might have caused a few sniggers in F2 paddocks 40 years ago, but Ron Dennis and Neil Trundle set new standards in team image – and they had the last laugh in the years to comeBy Alan Henry Forty years ago on April 17, Palm Sunday, the complexion of European motor racing took the first step towards changing forever. Two pale blue Brabham BT36 Formula 2 cars...

Ring the changes

15 minutes of fame. Motul M1: 1973 Norisring F2 Motul raced for just one season in Formula Two, in 1973. However, despite peaking with a 1-2-3-5 finish at the Norisring, boss Ron Dennis shut it down. Bruce Jones explains why It will come as no surprise that McLaren supremo Ron Dennis is not a man who takes being beaten lying down. So, when Rondel Racing, the team that he ran with Neil Trundle,...

Formula Two review

Jarier scores maximum points Ford fight back Two opening rounds of the European Formula Two Championship at Mallory Park and Hockenheim were crushing victories for the combination of a March chassis, a BMW engine and the promising, if somewhat impetuous, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jarier. The two subsequent rounds of this important competition have both shaped up as further honours for Jarier but,...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...

The Le Mans 24 Hour Race

Rondeau's rendezvous Every year, the Le Mans 24 Hours proves something special, whatever the predicament of sportscar racing as a whole. It has a lot to with the unique atmosphere of the Circuit of the Sarthe, and the magic of a race that runs twice around the clock on an ultra-fast eight and a half mile course still largely composed of normal main roads. This year, however, the ACO's Grand Prix...

Formula Two review

A fortnight after the second European Trophy round had been held at Thruxton 17 drivers made their way down to the historic French town of Pau in the Pyrenean foothills to compete on the demanding circuit round the streets.
