Lunch with... Alastair Caldwell

He rose from cleaner to team manager at McLaren, walked out on Bernie Ecclestone and then found a way to fund a passion for fine cars Writer: Simon Taylor | Photographer: James Mitchell Spending a day or even an hour with Alastair Caldwell, listening to his fund of stories about Formula 1 from the inside 40 or more years ago, is an unforgettable experience. As a callow, penniless 24-year-old,...

The Spanish Grand Prix

Not very excitingJarama, Madrid, April 29th The Grand Prix in Spain was the first in Europe for the 1979 season and inevitably it was held on the “mickey-mouse” Jarama Autodrome, as it is the only place in Spain suitable for the elite of the racing world to disport themselves. Such is the state of the art today, thanks to the Constructors’ Association, that the entry list was full and contained...

Notes on the cars at Buenos Aires

Lotus: Gone are the sleek black and gold creations from Hethel, they are now green with yellow lining. Gone too is the fatuous title "John Player Special", they are now "Martini-Lotus" (though Motor Sport has never considered a Lotus anything other than a Lotus). The reason for these changes is the end of the financial support from the John Player tobacco firm, after a long and successful...

Austrian Grand Prix

“Blow up James! No be sensible and settle for a good second place.” These were the alternating thoughts going through the mind of Shadow DN8 driver Alan Jones for much of the 54-lap Austrian Grand Prix at the Osterreichring on August 14. The 30-year-old Australian driver, son of early post-war Australian ace Stan Jones (winner of the first New Zealand Grand Prix), had moved the Shadow into second...

The Austrian Grand Prix

A Well-Earned Victory – Knittelfeld, August 14th In spite of the Osterreichring being in the middle of the country and difficult of access, from whichever direction you approach, few people miss the annual visit to the very scenic circuit. After the slow, twisty circuits like Monaco and Zolder the high-speed corners of the Osterreichring are refreshing, and after the stadium of Hockenheimring it...

Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

Formula Two review

Tragedy and disorganisation at Rouen The annual Formula Two race at the impressive Rouen Les Essarts road circuit has always been a favourite. The track itself is fast and extremely challenging, the surroundings are extremely pleasant and the meeting has always had a relaxed air. This year it was rather different and a shadow was placed over the whole proceedings by the death in practice of the...

Sydney's opera horse Problems with a 4wd Ferguson trigger memories of bygone engineering complexity Late on the Saturday night at Goodwood’s ‘72’ meeting, I was walking through the paddock when I happened upon a perplexed little group huddled over the fabulous four-wheel-drive Ferguson P99. Owner/driver Stuart Rolt explained that its Climax engine had subsided into silence on his first practice...

In Jarrot's slipstream Retracing the route of the Circuit des Ardennes, where British pioneers made their names London’s first Chinese restaurant, it appears, was opened in 1907. Now park that thought for a while. During the same year, Belgium’s last Circuit des Ardennes race took place on a 53½-mile-long public road course based upon the market town of Bastogne. The Circuit des Ardennes was the...

Sauber C9 fixed for Group C finale

Xtec Engineering has been busy repairing the car, which was damaged in a first-corner accident at Silverstone in July, for its Australian owner Rob...
