The Passage of Rarities

Back in the 1980s I was occasionally asked to buy classic and competition cars on behalf of the wealthy Japanese collector Yoshiyuki Hayashi. His pink Italya Trading sponsorship livery became quite familiar on assorted Group C cars, racing not only in Japan but also internationally. Those occasional commissions proved a useful avenue to my actually handling some great cars, and learning so much...

A matter of moment Carlo Abarth may have had fixed ideas about engine placement – but his cars won plenty of races Over the past few months I have been closely involved with what was Fabrizio Violati’s Maranello Rosso Collection of Ferraris and Abarths in San Marino. When former mineral water magnate Violati died in January 2010 he was the longest-term owner of any Ferrari 250GTO. Obviously in...

Lunch With... Dr Wolfgang Ullrich

Synonymous with Audi’s success in touring car and endurance racing, he’ll be chasing the company’s 13th Le Mans win in 15 years this June Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell Being a racer, and being a winner, takes many forms.

On the road with... Simon Arron

All the wolds a stage... Cadwell Park, June 22: the perfect alternative to a cancelled ’Ring trip When I awoke this morning, the first thing I heard was a cuckoo…” The Historic Sports Car Club’s CEO Grahame White seemed rather pleased about his unexpected alarm call, one that perfectly summarised the appeal of Cadwell Park and its surrounding Wolds.

Lunch with... Perry McCarthy

Formula Ford champion, F3 front-runner, Grand Prix non-qualifier, pioneering Stig, works Audi driver and perennial optimist...

Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey!By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Letters

April fuel I’ve just been reading about your article in April’s issue on your ideas for shaking up the world of F1. I was particularly interested in the use of the word ‘punkish’ to describe what the sport needs right now.
