Paul Fearnley's off the line

Green Issues Nobody had worn British Racing Green with greater pride — or more success — than Team Lotus. Impressed by the glitz and glamour of Indianapolis, Chapman had added that longitudinal yellow stripe, but that was all. Until Esso and Firestone withdrew their support — and ex-Lotus mechanic Dave Lazenby happened to mention to Andrew Ferguson, the man whose job it was to keep the team's...

Delirium tremens

Farewell to a straight shooterWhen it comes to telling things as they are, Fl can ill afford to lose men of the calibre of Goodyear's Lee Gaug "A lot of them are spoiled, overpaid kids who are not responsible. They're good, but as people they're not as good as they ought to be. They don't appreciate where their pay cheques come from." You could never accuse Lee Gaug of being bird-mouthed. He has...

Nigel Roebuck

Legends At the end of lunch in Goodwood House, I felt I should apologise to Luciano Burti, seated on my right, having spent an hour talking to the man on my left. Burti, Jaguar's test driver, is a personable fellow, and if I ignored him, it was only from a reluctance to miss the chance, after too long, of catching up with Jacky Ickx. Strange how some people barely change over the years. Ickx is...

How quick was Jim Clark?

Sir, I appreciated very much your December issue and Matthew Franey's analysis of the elements which make some drivers great and different from others; of course, Jimmy Clark was one of them. One of the examples about Clark, apart from being a testimony of his ability to be quick right from the start, may remind us that accuracy, in motor racing history, may be sometimes difficult to attain.

Surtees on Clark

John Surtees says that ‘team-mate’ is a misnomer. Mateyness simply isn’t part of the relationship between drivers in a team, but he and exact contemporary Jimmy Clark came close to it This is a difficult choice for John Surtees. He has raced alongside so many of the great names. He sits behind his desk, surrounded by books and papers, and thinks long and hard. He’s looking at me. I think I know...

American Comment

Most of the last eight weeks have been spent following the Canadian-American Challenge Cup and a number of the United States Auto Club's championship events, so since this is my first American Comment I thought it would be interesting to give a brief background to the motor-racing scene on this side of the water. In the United States the governing body for the sport is A.C.C.U.S., the Automobile...

Lunch with Paddy Hopkirk

The PM, Brucie, The Beatles… They all wanted to know this Belfast boy after his Mini win in Monte Carlo. But that was just one of his many successes In the UK at least, the frenzy surrounding Lewis Hamilton’s World Championship win last November spread far beyond Formula 1’s normal audience, and for a few days his name was on the lips of politicians, comedians, media pundits, even the priest on...

An American abroad

Texan Jim Hall twice made waves in Europe - first in a promising but short-lived F1 career, then as a team owner in sports cars with his innovative ChaparralsBy Gordon Kirby If there is one thing that Jim Hall is renowned for, it's his revolutionary Chaparral Can-Am cars. For the best part of a decade, between 1963 70, a mind-blowing series of Chaparrals rewrote the book on closed-wheel sports...
