The Monza 500 Mile Race

Indianapolis Brings a Breath of Fresh Air to Italy Monza, June 29th. Soon after the high-speed banked track was completed on the Monza Autodrome in August, 1955, the suggestion was made that an out-and-out track race should he held.

Targa Florio

It was more than a race: It was a passion, a passion so strong that it still burns today. Paul Fearnley is swept off his feet by it, 23 years after the final chequer. A straight.

And it's not the four-mile, aching-aim-flexing, crotch strap-readjusting, gauge-checking blind out...

Today it's news, tomorrow it's history. Formula One sensation Jenson Button is too young to have much of a history, but he has made plenty of news over the past year. What's important, though, is that he has a great and long future ahead of him.
