The Grand Prix

A non-(championship) event As the 1984 Grand Prix season for the World Championships was not due to start until March 25th with the Brazilian GP, and all the important teams were ready and raring to go by the end of January, the FOCA supreme organised a non-championship race to give them a pre-season try-out. Unfortunately the only country prepared to take this non-event was behind the Iron...

Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

Reluctant hero

He pulled Niki Lauda from the wreckage of his blazing Ferrari, fought in Vietnam and now pilots humanitarian flights for seriously ill children, but Brett Lunger plays down his many achievements… Writer Andrew Marriott Brett Lunger has always been understated, self-analytical, supremely fit and serious. That was his manner back in the 1970s when I handled his public relations in Europe and now,...

"Imagine being protested by your own team..."

In an extract from John Surtees’ new book, we look back at the 1963 and ’64 seasons. The Englishman might have become the first racer to take world titles on two wheels and four, but it wasn’t all plain sailing The option of going back to Italy had been hard to resist, but before this I took part in the six-race Tasman series, starting off the season well with two wins and a second place in the...

Thirtysomething

Penske Racing's car-building offshoot in Poole may be run on deadly efficient lines, but the man in charge is also one of the great motor sport enthusiasts It has been said of Nick Goozée that you can see all four seasons in a day on his face, but the fact that he's the one saying it tells you a lot about the man. "I guess I am lucky, because I probably struck right at the period of time. If you...

Sweet but unsung sixteen

A last gasp for Britain’s premier engine maker – and it went almost unheard The late, great Frank Gardner famously likened turbocharged racing engines to sounding “like ducks farting through long grass”. We have two ducks who regularly colonise our pond, but while I have never detected the auditory effect Frank cited it’s plain what he meant, and it is a concern in F1 that this year’s GP2 cars...

Clash of the Titans

When Indy 500 entrant Andy Granatelli teamed up with Colin Chapman, sparks were inevitable Andy Granatelli’s death on December 29 closed a remarkable chapter in motor racing history. The 90-year-old’s exploits and impact upon American track racing as would-be driver turned promoter, constructor, entrant and all-round entrepreneur had tremendous resonance upon the British audience during the 1960s...

Compliments of the racing season

For half a century motoring artist Michael Turner has welcomed Christmas with a special set of paintings you can send to your friends For the past 50 years, motor racing fans have enjoyed a particular Christmas tradition of their own – the publication each year by Michael Turner of his greetings card sets. It goes without saying that these do not feature snowmen, robins, Father Christmas or holly...

The rest of the Silverstone circus

Not content with the Grand Prix there was a fiesta of fun and sport for the spectators. The day opened with the 25-lap Sports-Car Race, in which Flockhart ran right away from the field in the Coombs' 2-litre Cooper-Monaco after Dickson's Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco had retired from the lead with transmission failure. Ashdown's 1,100 Lola made all the big cars look ridiculous by holding second...

Fighting chance

Years of hard-won knowledge, 'I can do better' Chutzpah and driver determined to get up off the floor, were the ingredients of this knockout win. By Nick Phillips Think Boxer and you probably think pugilist, perhaps dog, or maybe even Rebellion. But in racing circles early in 1977, it could mean only one thing the car which had, in Brian Henton's hands, pulled one of the most unexpected F2 wins...
