Legends - Ken Tyrrell

"In a time when motor racing was conducted with integrity and passion, one unique character graced the stage of Formula One. His name was Ken Tyrrell." The narrator's opening words set the tone of a fine new film about a man whose achievements, it seems to me, have always been curiously under-documented. It has been made by Mark Stewart Productions, and no company could be better placed for such...

Veteran to classic -- HSCC Donington

F1 in the Park 1966, the year of the Stones' Paint it Black, the year of Clint Eastwood's third spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and the year that Graham Hill won the Indy 500. It was also the year that saw a change in regulations governing Formula 1, when the 1-1/2-litre engines gave way to 3 litres and, incidentally, allowed for the reintroduction of supercharged engines into...

1970s

New ideas proliferate on track but the driver toll continues. Tyrrell is blue riband, Lotus goes black and gold and Hunt hits his purple patchBy Alan Henry There was a certain contradictory symbolism about Jack Brabham winning the opening round of 1970, the South African Grand Prix at Kyalami. It was as if the 44-year-old Aussie’s victory run in the Brabham BT33 had been the final full-stop which...

Goodwood Festival of Speed: Pictorial Review

The sight and sound of the sole surviving V16 Auto Union mountain climb car, a great silver fish of a machine which slithered and growled under expert control, twin rear wheels scrabbling for grip in the omni-present rain, was as unforgettable to the 100,000 people who watched, entranced, at the fifth Goodwood Festival of Speed, as it was to its driver, Hans-Joachim Stuck. As if the clock was...

Water Wolf Racing

Almost exactly a year ago we were being introduced to the new Wolf racing car and the new team. Walter Wolf had financed the Frank Williams team in 1976, with the Harvey Postlethwaite-designed rubber-spring car, with a variety of second-class drivers. This had got Wolf into the Formula One world, but he wasn't content to be at the back of the field, he wanted his team to win. Buying out the...

Matters of moment

Given all the fuss about Rolls-Royce and Bentley right now, you'd be forgiven for not noticing that automotive GBH is already being committed on the name of one of our most proud and innovative marques. Have you seen the brand new Rover-BRM? If not you should know that it is neither gas-turbine powered nor likely to be competing at Le Mans any time soon. This Rover-BRM is an entirely unremarkable...

7th South African Grand Prix

Controversial Stewart victory KYALAMI, March 3rd. JACKIE STEWART will remember his win in the 1973 South African Grand Prix for a long time.

Enzo Ferrari's right-hand woman

In the tightly-knit world of F1 everyone knows who Brenda Vernor is: from 1978 until his death in 1988, this native of Croydon was Enzo Ferrari's right-hand woman as well as 'mother figure' to the racing team . . . We recently had the chance to reminisce with her. Enzo Ferrari has always been regarded as an institution in Italy. In fact, someone once suggested that first comes the Pope, then...
