Back in the Saddle

When Lotus made their first tentative Formula One steps, Cliff Allison and the Nimble 12 scored the first points for this famous team. After 43 years apart, we reunited them. David Malsher reports Blip, blip, buzz — pause — clunk, sputter, sputter. This Lotus `queerbox' is in perfect condition. But it's still a sod. Next lap, into the first corner, there's a confident blip, blip, and a creamy...

RACING CARS ARE BIG BUSINESS THERE WAS a time when anyone who wanted to buy a racing car went along to see a designer laid down the general principles of the car he wanted, paid over a large sum of money, and his car (if he was lucky) was delivered to him in due course. As in so many other aspects of racing, things are different now and buying a racing car is very little more complicated than...

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...

A tale of two Renaults

Two Renault  5's came up for test last month, the sporting TS and the newly-introduced 5-Auto. There is not much need to explain the Renault 5 in general, because these splendid little cars are extremely well-known and popular. Indeed, the R5 is the World's best-selling French car, with well over two-million sold since its introduction in 1972. It is also the best-selling Renault model in Britain...

Small Is Beautiful

You know that Copse is quick, always have known it. And it became more of a challenge a few years ago, when they did away with the Silverstone short circuit beloved of slipstreaming Formula Fords (remember them arriving several abreast at the old Woodcote?), and added a few new fiddly bits suited to greater purity of racing line than the old who-can-be-last-on-the-brakes right-hander. The upshot...

Racing on the Isle of Man

—the R.A.C. disapprove LAST month I wrote about the possibility of holding the R.A.C. Tourist Trophy race on the Mountain Circuit in the Isle of Man, a circuit that is used twice a year for motorcycle racing, three weeks in June and two weeks in September. It is a circuit whose value is not only proven, but one that is fully geared to racing, as regards marshalling, control, medical facilities,...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club SceneWhat's happening in Formula Ford Formula Ford, the category of racing Introduced in 1967, continues to go from strength to strength and, if the early season races are anything to go by, 1972 could be the best year ever for these 1,600-c.c. skinny wheeled single-seaters. This season there are umpteen FF championships but the one everyone wants to win is that...
