A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

Lunch With... Derek Warwick

He never earned the Grand Prix wins he deserved, but the man once dubbed Britain’s next World Champion isn’t worried.

Market Leader

From Mk1 prototype via F1 car, Le Mans and Indy winners, Lola found its niche as a supreme customer car-builder by the 1970s, as David Malsher (almost) discovers Show me a motor-racing fan who does not enthuse about the shape of the Lola T210/212, and I'll show you a liar.
