Events of the month

BTCC Brands Hatch The crowd at Brands Hatch experienced something unusual during the BTCC finale: it wasn’t raining. Well, not for the first few hours, anyway. Not since 2011 had there been a dry championship decider, which has added to the excitement – or stress, depending on which side of the paddock fence you sit.

Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

Spa Six Hours

Spa Six Hours NEW ZEALANDERS ROGER WILLS and Brendon Hartley were the hares for most of the 20th Spa Six Hours, but Simon Hadfield's epic final stint in Leo Voyazides' sister Ford GT40 brought him past Wills, who was grappling with gearbox problems.
