National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Formula Two Review

With five of the 12 rounds of this year's European Formula Two Championship run two Swedish drivers head the points table. On paper Stefan Johansson has the lead on 19 points but fellow countryman Eje Elgh (18 points) is appealing against a disqualification from the results of the Thruxton round, which cost him six points. Elgh finished runner-up to Maurer team-mate Robert Guerrero at Thruxton...

Home Rule for Mercedes

Continuing what now looks like a repeat whitewash of the World Sports Prototype Championship, the Sauber Mercedes team notched up another 1 —2 success at the Nürburgring in August. The Silk Cut Jaguars were fast and reliable, finishing in third and fourth places one lap behind, and Mark Blundell was "best of the rest" in a solo drive taking his Nissan to fifth place, three laps in arrears. It...

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

World Sportscar Championship: Dijon 480-kms

That magic ingredient What seemed like a formality for the Sauber Mercedes team at Dijon on May 21, and therefore a contest for third place, turned into a splendid success for an underdog Porsche, a Reinhold Joest 962C driven by Bob Wollek and Frank Jelinski. It might seem rather far-fetched to describe a Joest Porsche as an underdog, but it had been almost two years since a product of Weissach...

WS-PC Season Preview

"Economy Racing" Era to End In October the Group C sports car formula will follow Formula One into the new decade, ruled by 3.5-litre normally aspirated engines. The `economy' era, dictated by the need to make 51 litres of fuel last 100 kilometres, will be ended to the delight of most drivers but the mechanism to equalise the performances of production block, racing, turbocharged and normally...

Shoot for the Stars

I drove my heart out for 300 miles. I took no prisoners on the track, and then I got disqualified on a detail like that. I am totally overwhelmed". Martin Brundle was dejected and angry the day after the Donington round of the World Sports-Prototype Championship, his solo drive to third place in the Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-11 expunged from the records by the FISA stewards. The offence was to...

Omnipotence Reigns!

It was predictable, really, that the Sauber Mercedes team would return to Dijon-Prenois in a determined mood. Last year's result was the one blot on the team's record sheet, and that was motive enough. Then, Sauber had the luxury of developing and testing the C11 right through June, when all the rival teams were preparing for Le Mans and recovering from the ordeal. The result? Mercedes' third 1-2...

Interview: Eddie Jordan

"I believe. . ." Eddie Jordan is one of those Irishmen who has kissed the Blarney Stone, but the fact that he has managed to climb the greasy motor racing pole quite as quickly as he has shows he is also a tough cookie. A banker by profession, although a racer by inclination even after hanging up his own helmet in 1980 to form his own Formula Three team, he understands just what makes the world...

Star performers

Today, racing drivers chase after points in title battles. When the BRDC was young it flirted with a championship series, but soon devised a more flexible award for merit Racing is built on awards, and no drivers club could live without its own set of gongs. When the infant BRDC sat down to plan its trophy list, it took a bold line: instead of counting points it would hand out a merit award — the...
