Spice Varieties

In designing the Spice Pontiac during 1985, Graham Humphrys drew heavily on his Formula One experience with Hesketh and Theodore. He produced a straightforward and classical honeycomb aluminium monocoque with great strength and rigidity, meeting the F1 safety standards at least of the early 1980s. On a trestle in the workshop in the bare chassis looks rather large for a formula car, as though it...

Around and About

Sports Car Driver Shuffles As Martin Brundle returns to the Brabham Formula 1 team, his place with Silk Cut Jaguar has been taken by Derek Warwick who resigned from Lotus. Warwick, 36, was almost a founder member of the Tom Walkinshaw directed Jaguar Group C programme, having driven the XJR-6 to its first victory at Silverstone in May 1986. At the end of that season, he missed the Drivers'...

Controversy in East Midlands

Smoke pours from the vast, fat power station towers on the horizon between Nottingham and Derby, and although the gathering gloom concealed the fact at Donington Park, a smoke cloud of equal proportions rose above Tom Walkinshaw's motorhome. The Silk Cut Jaguars had been excluded from the results of the seventh round of the World Sports-Prototype Championship, on a track that might fairly be...

IMSA GTP championship

Night and day! Derek Bell's particular blend of skill and good luck earned him his third victory at Daytona, and his eighth 24-hour race laurels in all, in the opening round of the 1989 IMSA GTP Championship. The Pagham driver's personal technique and car sympathy can only be one factor in this phenomenal record of victories; the other is to be in the right car at the right time, with co-drivers...

"Even if I had fear I still kept my foot down. That's what racing is all about"

  At his peak in the 1980s Keke Rosberg was the swashbucking buccaneer of grand prix racing. Nigel Roebuck looks back with the legendary Finn Moments from the life of Keke Rosberg. The 1982 World Champion has always been a fine story-teller — and well able to tell a tale against himself. Rosberg's sense of humour, dry and cynical, is never far from the surface, but there is also a deeply...

Jaguar's Crown

Five years of Porsche domination in Group C ended at the Nürburgring, when the Silk Cut Jaguar team recorded its sixth victory of the season and secured the 1987 Teams championship. Eddie Cheever and Raul Boesel took the flag three laps ahead of Derek Bell and Hans Stuck in the Joest Racing Porsche 962C, with Jochen Mass and Oscar Larrauri a further two laps back in a Walter Brun Porsche. Last...

Le Mans 24hrs: preview

Equipes et pilotes Only a provisional list of Le Mans entries, without any confirmed drivers, was available at the time of going to press, and some of the race numbers had yet to be allocated. Traditionally this is a time for wishful thinking for some teams (though these dreams have to be backed up by a hefty non-returnable entry fee), but Mike Cotton and Ian Briggs speculate as to which machines...

Interview; Hugh Chamberlain

In amongst the big boys Life was not easy in 1988 for anyone trying to beat Spice Engineering in the World Sports-Prototype Group C2 Championship. But then, it wasn't easy in 1987, or 1986, or1985. The team which came nearest last year was the Spice customer team run by Hugh Camberlain, a burly ex-policeman who came to world-class competitions via a happy era in Clubmans racing. In contrast to...

Cotton on....

Shambles! No self-respecting sport, other than motor racing it seems, would tolerate the shambles that its governing body "arranges" each year when publication of the calendar is due. FISA has neglected the World Sports Prototype Championship almost absolutely for many years now, except to tell the manufacturers and entrants what they cannot do, but in the midst of his extraordinary tirade at Le...

the Spice trade

Words: Gary Watkins. Photography: LAT More by accident than design, Gordon Spice lent his name to a sports car marque that delivered world championship success. A pity it couldn't last Pick a sports car race in the second half of the '80s, on either side of the Atlantic, and an image of a pack of Porsche 962s will probably spring to mind. Stuttgart's finest bulked out the grids in the world...
