Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

The Spa 1,000 Kilometres

Surprise victory for Gulf-Mirage Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, May 6th One of the encouraging things about life is that it is never completely bad, and motor racing reflects this more every day, therefore it gave enormous pleasure to witness the running of the 1,000-kilometre sports car race on the super-fast Spa-Francorchamps circuit in the Belgian Ardennes south of Liège. The circuit was in fine...

World Sportscar Championship: Brands Hatch 1000kms

Lloyd does it again Last September Bob Wollek and Mauro Baldi won then first World Sportscar Championship race together, but there was no pleasure on their faces as they received the garlands at Spa; their Lancia had won a race shortened by the death of Stefan Bellof and celebrations were cancelled. At Brands Hatch in July there was nothing to mar the victory they achieved in the Liqui Moly...

The drivers

The drivers: we chose our particular 12 'consumers' because we think they are typical – a cross section of Cinturato enthusiasts everywhere. In age they range from 21 to 58. In cars owned from family saloons to a Ferrari 250 GT. In driving ability from the skilled family motorist to the man with a long list of rally and competition successes. What they have in common is a consistently thoughtful...

Alfa Romeo takes Championship Lead

AFTER THE relatively new, modern autodromes of Mugello and Dijon, the stage scenery for the fourth and fifth rounds of the World Championship for Makes was changed to two long-established, classic circuits: Monza and Spa. Both are steeped in tradition, having an ambience that the new tracks can hardly hope to have attained yet, and both are very, very fast, even though there is now a permanent,...

Objectives of Desiré

Desiré Wilson could mix it with the best in single-seaters and sportscars. Richard Heseltine charts why, given a change of luck, she could have been a Formula One star A few weeks after storming the Brickyard in May, Dan Wheldon arrived for the Indycar race at the Texas Motor Speedway wearing a T-shirt announcing, 'Actually, I won the Indy 500'.

The Brands Hatch Six Hour Race

Victory for Lancia on a sad occasion  The second round of the World Championship for Makes run at Brands Hatch on March 16th may not have been the most exciting long distance race ever, but at least it provided an unexpected result.
