Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory.

Tilting at windmills

The Tulip Rally aspired to greatness in the 1950s and 1960s but was held back by lack of finance ans a failure to embrace modern methods.
