Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Spa 24 hours

A British win at last July 1st 1979, that is the date the Belgian ministry of public works has set for the completion of the 7 km./4.3 miles track that will replace the current public 14.1 km./8.7 miles of public road that comprise the current Spa-Francorchamps track. With this in mind it seemed as though the July annual 24-hour race for saloon cars had bowed out on a fitting note in 1978, with...

Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport.

ADAC 1000 Kilometres

Too easy for Ferrari Nürburgring, May 27th. The annual 1,000-kilometre sports car race organised by the ADAC on the Nürburgring never fails to produce a large entry, for the organisation and the circuit can accommodate an almost limitless number and variety of cars. This year's event was open to Prototype sports cars, GT cars and Group 2 saloons and the 44 laps of the Nürburgring is a challenge...

Spa 24-hour & Zandvoort 4-hour

ETC rounds 5 and 6 to Hezemans/Quester and BMW. Toine Hezemans and Dieter Quester completed a brilliant double for the BMW works team of 3.0 CSLs, winning both the Spa 24 hr. race on July 21st-22nd and the Zandvoort 4 hr. race on August 12th. BMW thus take a 20 point lead from Ford in the European Touring Car Championship, with 110 points to 90, while Hezemans leads Brian Muir in the drivers'...

Formula 3 in retrospect

Whatever happened to the likely lads? In the late 1960s any aspiring Formula 1 ace simply had to get into Formula 3 somehow or other. These days we're used to Grand Prix drivers emerging from other categories such as Formula Atlantic or even Can-Am and the system of progression is far less predictable than it used to be. Formula 3 is currently enjoying a particularly healthy time and, in...
