What's gone wrong?

In 1991, Allan McNish's hitherto meteoric racing career hit a serious stumbling block. Where does the young Scot go from here? Here is an interesting conundrum for statisticians. In 1987, after many years of karting success (thrice Scottish junior champion, once British junior champion, once British senior champion), Allan McNish celebrated his 17th birthday and immediately took up car racing. In...

Cheap freeze?

Lola's Nick Langley was looking forward to going to Spa. The company's Formula 3000 project manager has had a rum year in Europe, where not one T93/50 chassis has been sold, and he went to Belgium hoping to drum up business for 1994. When he got there, the first thing he learnt was that there will, FIA ratification pending, be a ban on new cars next season . . . This did not make his weekend. The...

Peterborough M.C. Silverstone Meeting (Sept. 19th)

Peterborough M.C. officials had a very busy day, because they had a programme comprising two half-hour high-speed trials and races totalling 82 laps. In the second trial a TC M.G. rolled over at Copse and the event had to be abandoned after 20 minutes to enable the ambulance to cross the track, the driver having received chest injuries. Then a competitor came out too late to the start in one of...

Book Reviews

"Louis Renault", by Anthony Rhodes. 235 pp. 8½ in. x 5¾ in. (Cassell and Co. Ltd., 35, Red Lion Square, London, W.C.1. 45s.) Some years ago a book was published about Renault and I complained that, interesting as it was, and fresh ground that it broke, it did not tell the story of the Renault car so much as that of the Renault brothers and the tragic end of Louis Renault. Since then Renault...

The most important being in Category C—racing cars, where groups 7, 8 and 9 have been reshuffled. For those who like to know in detail what is going on I append a complete list of the F.I.A....

Electric Storm

It's green on the outside - and the same applies beneath the skin. Meet Drayson Racing's potent, pioneering sports car By Ed Foster Lord Drayson couldn't wipe the smile off his face. He'd just got back from driving up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in his new electric Le Mans prototype and, despite the fact that it had run for the first time only three days before, it had gone without...

Profile points

Although its products won the CART and Japanese F3000 titles last season, 1991 wasn't a wholly successful year for Lola. Undeterred, the Huntingdon constructor is preparing a spectacular assault on motor racing's four major disciplines in 1993 Winter 1991 cannot have been too comfortable a time for Lola, the specialist volume racing car constructor founded by Eric Broadley in 1958. It was forced...

The 53rd Targa Florio

A Porsche Monopoly Cefalu, Sicily, May 4th. The Targa Florio is not so much a race as a state of mind and a drive down through Southern Italy and along the fantastic northern coast road of Sicily puts you well into the atmosphere that can only be Targa Florio. No matter how quietly you leave Messina, heading west for Palermo, the mountain roads soon get into your blood, as does the approaching...
