Film Reviews

B.R.S.C.C. Midnight Film Show A popular winter motor-racing entertainment is the B.R.S.C.C. Festival of Speed and Sport, which took place last year on November 22nd. It is astonishing, even startling, proof of the popularity of motor racing that two large London cinemas were filled to capacity for this non-stop two-hour midnight film show, while other cinemas in other parts of the country drew...

Why innovation matters in F1 - and always should

Advanced technologies developed in Formula 1 have long benefited the wider world – no matter how restrictive the rules are Not all sports need to have spectator appeal. The young lad playing football for his village team is happy to play in front of a handful of friends. The amateur golfer slicing yet another ball into a water hazard is doubtless thankful there are no spectators. Even in our own...

Top Cat

What's it like to drive the XJ220C in anger? Win Percy, one of Jaguar's nine-strong Le Mans squad gave the car a victorious debut in the recent Sports GT event at Silverstone. Here, he tells us just how it feels, talks us round a lap of the Grand Prix circuit, and discusses his hopes for the weekend of June 19/20... My observations reflect how the car felt on the weekend of the Silverstone GT...

Classic Touring Cars (April 23) Mallory Park

David Howard continued his impressive start to the Classic Touring Car Racing Club season by adding a win and a second at Mallory Park. Howard romped his potent Jaguar XJ12 to victory in the Classic Group One race, but was contained in the Post Historic thrash by the nimble Escort RS2000 of Stephen Primett. French commuter Gérard Faber took his second win of the season in the Classic Thunder...

Martin Brundle Multiple hot-rod winner Brundle has been one of the anchors of F1 TV coverage since 1997. His grid walkabout is a highlight, because as a Grand Prix driver and Le Mans winner himself he can talk to an F1 driver on equal terms. His insight and crisp honesty make a welcome change from corporate-speak, so this month he joins Nigel Roebuck for a metaphorical 2008 ‘grid walk’. Martin...

A jam-packed season

Owen racing organisation BRM versus Team Lotus For the two drivers who battled out the 1962 Formula 1 World Championship to its nail-biting last-round conclusion, the year had started very differently. While Jimmy Clark was dominating a south African Formula 1 tour in baking sunshine, graham hill and his equally roustabout friend Peter Jopp were slithering down to Monaco over ice and snow in the...

Letters from readers

The cost of watching motor racing Sir, As a spectator at motor-racing events since 1954, I am now being deterred by the exorbitant admission prices. Some years ago, Entertainments Tax was lifted and a drop in admission charges was then anticipated; however, they have steadily risen —examples this season include Easter Goodwood, 10s.; Whitsun Mallory Park, £1 ; and now Bank Holiday Brands Hatch,...

Brut(e) Force

The Assistant Editor is let loose with Stuart Graham's all-conquering Camaro The needle kisses the red sector on the rev. counter in top gear at Knicker Brook approaches at the best part of 140 m.p.h. Off the throttle, on to the brakes and at least some of the 400 brake horsepower is stilled temporarily before the Holley carburetter's four chokes open with a thump to power the big Camaro across...

1960s British single seater racing

Nearly an hour of quality colour film from this era is a real treat and there is great variety here, too. Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Mallory Park and Crystal Palace are the scenes for Formula Junior, F2 and F1, all shot by film-maker David Roscoe. Typically plummy period commentary and ubiquitous ’60s newsreel music (or perhaps that should be ‘muzak’) completes the time warp. Highlights include...
