Hidden Glory, The Story of the Crosslé Car Company Alan Tyndall Other volume racing car manufacturers have cultivated higher profiles – March, Lola, Van Diemen and Reynard, to name but four – but one of the UK’s most engaging cottage industries has been ravaged by one-make myopia and many famous names have either gone to the wall or else simply faded away as custom dried up. But not Crosslé. For...

Lunch with... Perry McCarthy

Formula Ford champion, F3 front-runner, Grand Prix non-qualifier, pioneering Stig, works Audi driver and perennial optimist... Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell The road to Formula 1 is steep and stony. For every rookie who takes his place on a Grand Prix grid there’s a long queue of hopefuls who never get there. Among the ones who come closest, talent – pure talent – may not be...

Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey! By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Fast, Furious and Fun

If you haven't been to watch Formula Three this year, you have missed some of the best racing ever. Only two competitive chassis (Ralt and Reynard), three engines (Toyota, Alfa and Volkswagen), control tyres (Avon), yet more than a dozen drivers who can be within a second of each other in qualifying — and that is just out of the thirty Class A cars. In Class B, for cars of at least a year's...

Formula 3000

Red flags, black marks TS Eliot once contended that "April is the cruellest month". He was wrong. August is worse. For the European Formula 3000 Championship, August 1988 was the blackest period since records began in March 1985. There were two races. Both were in Britain, both were a complete farce, and a total of four drivers were taken to hospital, two with serious injuries. Indeed, the latest...

EUROPEAN GRAND PRIX

Schumacher moves closer. On his return from suspension the World Championship leader extends his advantage, as Mansell's comeback fizzles. The folly of Jerez as a Grand Prix track was never better illustrated than on the afternoon of Sunday, October 16. The sherry region's idea of a racetrack provided many of the safety facilities that were so conspicuously lacking when Martin Donnelly had his...

1999 - The essential guide to the season

From Coys to Goodwood, Le Mans to Monza, this season's historic calendar is packed with thrills. Marcus Pye previews the best action. From ignominious failure to heroic Formula One World Championship success, engineering folly to mechanical wizardry, the story of British Racing Motors is a compelling one. Back in 1949, when the shattering sound of the first supercharged V16 engine roused the...

Matters of moment

Safeguarding the future In an age when all-too-many motor racing headlines are created by unsavoury events both on and off the track, our spirits have been lifted by one or two recent occurrences. Firstly, it was pleasing to see Martin Donnelly making a dignified return to the cockpit of a top-line single-seater at Snetterton recently, when he drove one of Madgwick's British F2 cars. Although he...

Interview: Eddie Jordan

"I believe. . ." Eddie Jordan is one of those Irishmen who has kissed the Blarney Stone, but the fact that he has managed to climb the greasy motor racing pole quite as quickly as he has shows he is also a tough cookie. A banker by profession, although a racer by inclination even after hanging up his own helmet in 1980 to form his own Formula Three team, he understands just what makes the world...
