The Beautiful South

Boxing Day at Brands Hatch or two months of winter sunshine? Gordon Cruickshank talks to some who made the Tasman Cup choice It's Derek Bell who makes the comparison: "I've just come back from the first GP Masters race in South Africa. Enthusiastic crowd starved of racing, watching big names in winter sunshine — it reminded me of the Tasman series." With 19 grands prix next year, it's hard to...

Formula One scene: Monte Carlo

The eleven year plan I sometimes wonder if I am totally out of step with the rest of the world when I read things like the Renault Press handout which says that the Monaco Grand Prix is the world's most prestigious race. I have been watching Grand Prix races round the streets of Monte Carlo for longer than I care to remember, and I can't say I have ever taken them very seriously. The idea of...

The Dutch Grand Prix

An excellent win for BRM. Zandvoort, Holland, May 20th The 1962 Dutch Grand Prix was notable for three outstanding things, it was the first round in the World Championship series, it took the title of Grand Prix of Europe, and it assembled a wealth of technical interest not seen for many a year at a Grand Prix race. The cream of the Grand Prix world were present, as well as some of the sour milk...

How 'Gentleman Jack' tamed 450 wild horses

"Aintree was a lucky circuit for me:' recalls Jack Sears."I had quite a few wins there, and so on that basis I have happy memories of it. As well as the Galaxie victories, I won there in 1960 in the Aston Martin DB4 GT run by Equipe Endeavour; in a3.8 Mk11 Jaguar in '62; and in the Cortina GT in '63.

Unique mystique

Mario Andretti’s childhood years in a refugee camp in Italy and early racing career on US dirt tracks gave him a background entirely different to those of his GP rivals – and real charisma  As I walked into the Donington Park GPLive paddock in May, a lot of folk were clustered together around somebody or something, and curiosity drew me towards them. In the middle of the crush sat a Lotus 49 in...

When racing went Caracas Maserati was on the verge of a world title – and total financial meltdown. A dramatic race in Venezuela cost it the former and guaranteed the latter If you thought the recent Japanese Grand Prix was incident-packed and chaotic, November 3 this year will mark the half-century since a really incident-packed and chaotic endurance race decided the Sports Car World...

Al mighty

Few racers have let their driving do their talking like Al Unser Snr. Despite winning the Indy 500 four times, he tends to shun publicity. But this modest hero spoke to David Malsher about his Brickyard brilliance The Penske team was in trouble.

Injection of promise

1964 German Grand Prix John Surtees (Ferrari 158) It was probably his motorcycle experiences that gave John Surtees the bravery to conquer Formula One's most fearsome circuits, the Nurburgring and Spa-Francorchamps.
