Thus over the past four or five years the number of full-scale non-Championship races has dropped drastically to just the couple at the start of the season in Britain. An attempt to run a non-...

Group C cars steal International Supersports thunder

As a double-header support race to the British Touring Car Championship, the International Supersports Cup drew a disappointing field to Donington Park in late September. To bolster the grid, half a dozen Group C cars were added and, inevitably, dominated the race.

Warhorses: Lola T290, chassis number HU22

While impecunious privateers in the '70s felt momocoques were flimsy and no rugged enough, this car proved them wrong, says Marcus Pye 1290 chassis HU22 — or 'Old Faithful' as it is affectionately known to Dorset Racing's Tony Birchenhough — has the finest CV of any 2-litre Gp6 sports prototype. With five Le Mans 24 Hours starts and 25 gruelling world championship rounds on a staggering 80-plus...
