Rooms with a view

Formula 1 is poised to return to America after a five-year absence, but more than three decades have passed since the United States Grand Prix last took place at its spiritual home, Watkins Glen. It was one of the most popular races on the schedule, and a fragment of that era thrives still… By Gordon Kirby You can’t miss the Glen Motor Inn. It’s less than one mile north of Watkins Glen on the...

The Reims Grand Prix

A Battle - But Not Heated REIMS, FRANCE, July 1st. With the French Grand Prix being held at Rouen this year, the Automobile Club du Champagne stood on its own feet and held the Reims Grand Prix as a major Formula One race. Many years ago when the French Grand Prix was regularly held at Linas-Montlhéry the race at Reims was known as the Grand Prix of the Marne, and it is nice to think of it as...

Twin Peaks

Two World Championships, two racing careers – and Emerson Fittipaldi plans to break more new ground for 1996 There has always been a storied even fanciful quality to Emerson Fittipaldi's career, almost as if it's been infused with the same other-worldly spirits that are so much a part of the fabric of everyday life in his native Brazil. For example, Fittipaldi's meteoric rise from Formula Ford to...

Modern Times

So the Championship goes to the final round: down, as journalists are fond of saying, to the wire. In the Luxembourg Grand Prix, in Michael Schumacher's back yard and in front of his adoring fans, Mika Hakkinen produced the race of his life. This seesaw season swung again, and set the scene for a Suzuka show-down. Which is, of course, a major relief to the Japanese organisers, to TV moguls around...

I wish I'd designed.

Lotus 25: Tony Southgate, design consultant, Audi sport One of Britain's most prolific racing car designers who counts Formula One and Le Mans winners in his portfolio, selects a design which left him wide-eyed in admiration at its original thinking. It's a slight problem to choose a car I didn't do because I've been associated with so many over the years, much more than most I suppose [Lola,...

Will a winner take it all ?

Five years after their battle for the World Championship, such are the vagaries of F1 that while old adversaries Alain Prost and Nelson Piquet are 'retired', Nigel Mansell is focussing on his best ever chance of winning the crown. I'm leaner and meaner and more focussed now. I know the areas on which I need to concentrate." As ever at this time of a season, Nigel Mansell looks trim, athletically...

Nigel Roebuck's Legends

Zandvoort, the circuit in the sand dunes -- a great track with the best corner name in F1. 'Tarzan' is so much better that 'Turn 1'. In recent years there's been a spate of new circuits in world championship use, and I mean tracks not merely new to Formula One, but tracks new, period, built in unlikely places and paid for with government money, specifically with the intention of raising a...

The Yellow Rose

30 years on Trevor Taylor reflects contentedly on his life in Jim Clark's shadow "Even on the road, I don't drive quickly, me. I live in Yorkshire and used to pop down to Ledbury to see John Thornburn. John could do it in an hour and half; I did it in two and a half hours. I'd get up early in the morning to miss the traffic and the maximum I do is 60, 65mph. I don't know why! But I used to be a...

Innes Ireland drives brilliantly to win B.R.D.C International Trophy race for Lotus. Lotus also win F.J. race. Salvadori (Jaguar) vanquishes Moss in saloon car contest.

  The B.R.D.C. successfully put on a very full day's racing at Silverstone, but unfortunately a gloom had been cast over the meeting by the fatal accident to Harry Schell who, in the rain,  lost control of his Cooper at Abbey Curve and, hitting the marker wall as the car slid backwards, was thrown out and killed instantly. During the wet practice session Moss "lost" his Cooper as he accelerated...
