Grand Prix of United States

B.R.M. first and second with the old cars. Watkins Glen, Sunday, October 6th. The 1963 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen was freed this year from all World Championships considerations in so far that Clark and Lotus had clinched this year's Championship at Monza. This race counted for itself only, and all outside considerations could be put aside. The entry was the best yet as all teams...

Smart Rookie

It wasn't Graham Hill's first visit to Indianapolis, but it was his first crack at the race - and he won. Or did he? Joe Scalzo unravels the controversy Ray Harroun spent seven hours on the three million bricks of Indianapolis getting his bones beaten to powder winning the inaugural 500-mile sweepstakes. Called upon to say a few words for posterity, Harroun suffered a coughing fit. Then meekly...

When we were kings

Jochen Rindt and Jackie Stewart were the fastest drivers of their era -- and best friends. Stewart looks back at Rindt with Nigel Roebuck... It doesn't happen often, but just once in a while you get a race that not only lives up to its promise but actually exceeds it. Anyone who was there will tell you that the 1969 British Grand Prix was one such. Stewart versus Rindt. Matra against Lotus. The...

Abiding by the rules

Indycar racing has been making headlines for two very different reasons. There are new rules to consider, and then there’s the punishment handed out to Hélio Castroneves after his tirade against the officials at Edmonton. You’ll remember that Castroneves was stripped of his victory after being penalised for blocking his Penske team-mate Will Power and for ignoring a black flag. Having crossed the...

Cut out and keep

Thanks to Sir Jackie Stewart’s wife Helen, we now have a unique perspective on his racing careerBy Nigel Roebuck I have always loved scrapbooks. When I was a kid, I kept one devoted to the doings of Jean Behra, my great hero, and absolutely nothing got in the way of it – I would blithely, to the horror of my father, cut photographs even from Automobile Year so as to have them where they belonged...

XIX Grand Prix of Monaco

What a race ! Monte Carlo, May 14th. With no races being held in the Argentine this year the Monaco GP was the first Grande Epreuve of the season and naturally everyone wanted to be in it but, as usual, the number of cars permitted to start on the narrow and twisting 3.145-km circuit was limited to sixteen. This year a different arrangement of selection was used, in place of the previous idea of...

Clark’s last ground-breaking Lotus

Jimmy Clark's luck might have been in that day at Sneffellon as his Lotus 23 stripped first gear on the over-long stating grid, yet somehow everyone found a way past without smashing into him. We all know how the Scottish genius finally ran out of luck at Hockenheim on April 7, 1968, and I have just been reminded of it by finding a photograph of Jimmy with the last ground-breaking Lotus that he...
