A fitting memorial

Sir, What more fitting memorial to the late Tom Wheatcroft could there be than to see the Donington Park circuit return to the control of more competent leaseholders who will return the circuit to its previous glory. I well remember years of discomfort in the 1960s and early ’70s spectating at Silverstone, Snetterton, Mallory Park, and Oulton Park, etc. The delight to attend a circuit where it...

European F3000 Championship

Keeping it in the family When Emerson Fittipaldi clinched the 1974 World Championship at Watkins Glen, his McLaren was powered by an engine similar in performance to that which carried his nephew Christian to the 1991 European Formula 3000 crown. While Uncle Emerson continues to ply his trade successfully in CART, the family name has this year returned to the forefront of European motor racing,...

Showdown in Hockenheim

As a circuit the Hockenheimring will never replace the old Nürburgring, where the German Grand Prix was held for so many years, but it has developed a sort of negative character of its own. While the twisty bit inside the huge stadium is not as exciting as Mallory Park or the Club Circuit at Brands Hatch, the long curving sections out to the Ostkurve and back are fast, making for an average speed...

The B.R.S.C.C. Festival Of Speed And Sport

The Festival of Speed and Sport organised by the British Racing and Sports Car Club, in aid of the British Motor Racing Relief Fund, was billed for November 30th but, in fact, took place on December 1st last year, as it commenced just after midnight, at the Odeon, Leicester Square. Practically everyone who matters in British motor sport and who was in this country seemed to be present, and many...

Lola's Bid for CanAm Domination

Lola's Bid for CanAm Domination THE Canadian-American Challenge Series, CanAm fee short, fl. never enjoyed much of a reputation outside North America, especially since it was relaunched in 1977 to a slightly emasculated formula after a three year gap. Vol the huge CanAm cars are exciting in the extreme, attract top-rate drivers (Jacky 1cItx won the 1979 Championship) and traditionally the Series...

But then, as is his way, forthright Frank Gardner threw this into the melting pot: "The fastest driver I ever sat with was Pete Ryan."

Forty years ago, Canada held its inagural Grand Prix. Stirling Moss took part, but the race was won by a 21-year-old hero. Less than 12 months later, Peter Ryan was dead. Paul Fearnley tells a what-if tale Canadian. Young. Quick. Fearless. Quality skier, too. Jacques Villeneuve, right? It could be, except it's not. The description instead refers to a man killed nine years before the 1997 champion...

Simon Taylor's notebook

HSCC Roadsports is one way you can go historic racing without a millionaire's budget, or a trailer The generally accepted wisdom is that if you go motor racing it will cost you, and if you go motor racing in an old car it will cost you a lot. At the major historic meetings, priceless cars arrive in huge transporters operated by hired hands who maintain and mend. The owner just turns up to drive,...

Letter to readers

Vans! Dear Reader, The first time I saw a racing car being unloaded from a van in the paddock for a Speed Trial, I was fascinated, because up to that time racing cars were things I had only seen in photographs, racing on circuits. It had never occurred to me to consider how the racing car got to the circuit. Vans with the name of a well-known tuning establishment, or racing driver, on the side...

By E-Type To Monaco

A tough Continental test of the fastest model in the Jaguar range When the Jaguar E-type was announced at last year's Geneva Show it aroused World-wide admiration and was an immediate success. So naturally, everyone wanted to try it. But, apart from brief acquaintance with an early specimen down M1 it and up A5, we had to exhibit patience, partly because certain teething troubles required sorting...

Formula Two

The Situation When the latest regulations for Formula Two came into force in January, 1967, the Motor Circuit Developments group, which controls Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Mallory Park and Oulton Park, suggested that everyone should call this new class of racing "European Formula", for rather obscure reasons. Come 1968 and they dropped the Formula from their meetings, but the nickname they had...
