WEC, SIlverstone

“I tell you what,” said Mark Webber with a smile. “We’re going to have some good races this year.” His first taste of the World Endurance Championship had been the tonic he’d hoped for after the grind of Formula 1, but after a debut podium in the new Porsche 919 Hybrid shared with Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley his prediction can surely be judged a wry Aussie understatement. As this month’s...

Le Mans 24 Hours

In a sparkling new era of fuel efficiency and high technology, how fitting that Le Mans should be the scene of a 24 Hours that harked back to how it used to be. We’ve taken astounding levels of reliability for granted in recent years, as top-line drivers select sprint mode for the great enduro, despite the length, duration and grind that awaits them. But this time, each of the ‘big three’ proved...

Events of the Month

WEC: Spa 6 Hours Eau Rouge is easier now than it used to be thanks to Tarmac run-offs replacing gravel, and flat kerbs giving drivers a wider exit strategy as they pop over the top of Raidillon. But the sanitisation of motor racing's favourite bit of track hasn't made it any less spectacular as the prime place to witness aces on the limit. And when it comes to the World Endurance Championship,...

Events of the month

Wales Rally GB Not so much an event of the month, this, as one of the finest of 2013. Its success, though, was founded on the clamour surrounding the stages rather than anything that happened within.
