The powerhouse that Jack built

Jack Brabham was due to retire as a driver – until his astute choiceof Repco as engine builder gave him another F1 title. Paul Fearnley tells all Ferrari was the clear pre-season favourite. Team leader John Surtees wasn't so sure, however: he was less than thrilled with the new 3-litre V12, hardly enamoured of team manager Eugenio Dragoni and adamant that a Formula One season only truly began for...

Gugelmin Clinches F3 Championship

This year's Marlboro British Formula Three Championship has been the strangest in years for no one driver has emerged as the star of the series. It has also been one of the closest with the outcome being decided at the final round at Silverstone on October 13th. There, Brazilian Mauricio Gugelmin (Ralt RT30-VW) scored an emphatic win over Andy Wallace (Reynard 853-VW) so securing the title with...

Four x four by Williams

Frustrated by a lack of turbo power, Patrick Head & Co tried an extra driven axle for the FW08 instead. And it looked quick… Back in 1980-81 Renault and Ferrari put the turbocharged writing on the Formula 1 wall. The new forced-induction 1500cc engines set output levels which the naturally-aspirated 3-litre Cosworth brigade could not match. Patrick Head of Williams approached Ferrari for use...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

TUNING TEST VW-Brabham's Lighter Formula 3 JOHN JUDD, business associate of Sir Jack Brabham since 1966 and whose Rugby-based Cosworth DFV Formula I engine building activities were the subject of a MOTOR SPORT profile in 1978, enjoyed August 1982 heartily.

Beyond Midway

When we got to the halfway point of the 1988 season, even the most disinterested follower of Formula One must have realised that McLaren International had won all eight races with its Honda-powered MP4/4. Since then it has won two more and its drivers, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, have been sharing the victories between themselves, quite often finishing first and second. You may wonder what...

Greenlight for new Electroc prototype

Electric Lola-Drayson LMP machine tests the waters for 2013 FIA championship The new Lola-Drayson B12/69-EV all-electric Le Mans Prototype has been hailed as a test car to prove that electric power can be as competitive as petrol or diesel, a possible future contender at Le Mans and a showcase for future technologies.

Cape Horne

The news that Honda has found a new dancing partner for its Indy V8 engine programme should come as a relief to everyone connected with IndyCar racing. After all, while it may have given US racing's collective psyche a...

British Hill-climb Championship

As mentioned in last month's Motor Sport, mid-season favourite for the Shell/RAC Hill-Climb Championship was David Hepworth and so it came as a surprise to no one when Hepworth, driving his 4WD Hepworth FF, or Guyson Shotblast Special as it is now known in deference to its new sponsors, took the title with a second place at Prescott behind a very on form Roy Lane (McLaren M10B). Although he was...
