Park Life

Oulton park has had a chequered history since it was built by enthusiasts in 1953. For Bill Boddy, it holds many memories Although by the 1950s Britain was endowed with a number of very good motor racing circuits to compensate for the criminal loss of Brooklands, — for example, Silverstone, Donington Park, Goodwood, and the tight little Crystal Palace course —the keen members of the Mid-Cheshire...

Floridan time warp

End-to-end on Route 27, Sebring is 10 miles long. Land is cheap in Florida, and there's a typical strip of neon lights announcing gas stations (where the cheaper brands are still 99 cents per gallon), diners, motels and liquor stores. "American teams welcome here," proclaimed the illuminated billboard outside one motel, reacting against NISMO's startling success at Daytona a few weeks earlier,...

My hero

By Cliff Allison "It has to be Fangio. I took Lotus's USA representative to the 1957 French GP at Rouen and went with him to the bottom of the hill to watch something very special: Fangio plunging down there in a 250F in a 140mph four-wheel drift. On the first lap he must have seen me standing there in my race kit because the next time he went by he gave us a wave, still drifting the car at...

Track test - Reims

Reims was not the very greatest track but it still held a wealth of great races. Sadly, finds Andrew Frankel, its historic remains are rapidly crumbling to dust. Photography by Andrew Yeadon Strictly speaking, I'd never been to Reims before. But I had, like millions of others, been through Reims dozens of times. Every time I had cause to be almost anywhere in Europe in fact. It doesn't matter if...

This charming man

Fifty years on from his untimely death, Motor Sport looks back at the career of popular Englishman Peter Collins, who was more than just Hawthorn’s Mon Ami Mate By Nigel Roebuck Peter Collins was the debonair embodiment of the 1950s racing driver, a man of good looks and charm and wit. Born in 1931, he missed the war; with half a dozen years more behind him, he would surely have flown Spitfires....

Modern times

Michael Schumacher didn't have to wait until the chequered flag fell at Suzuka to be heralded around the world by various media — some well-informed, some less so — as the greatest racing driver of all time. The final race of the season finished soon after 8am in the UK, so the Sunday papers had to go to press before the race, and were on the nation's breakfast tables after any readers keen...

Olivier Gendebien Olivier Gendebien, without doubt one of the greatest sportscar racers of all time, died on October 2, aged 74. From a wealthy Belgian family, Brussels-born Gendebien came to motorsport relatively late. His colourful early life included service as a paratrooper in WW2, and a spell as a forester in the Belgian congo. Upon his return to Europe, his rally driving friend Charles...

Modern Times

I've had a minor deluge of letters and e-mails from readers wanting to know what I thought of Ferrari's tactics at the end of the Austrian Grand Prix, when Rubens Barrichello was forced to cede victory to Michael Schumacher. As luck would have it, last month's Modern Times had to go to press just before the Spielberg drama. By now, because things move pretty fast in Formula One, it all seems...

Worlds apart

Fifty years ago the Race of Two Worlds was billed as a contest between the leading F1 and Indy stars of the day around Monza’s fierce banking. In truth the event was a one-man race By Robin Miller It was a novel, if not naïve, concept: bringing 10 of the best and bravest Indycar drivers from America to Italy to compete against an equal number of Formula 1’s finest in a 500-mile race at Monza. But...
