The Formula One scene

There are times when I get the feeling that "big business" is trying to manipulate the sport of Grand Prix racing to further its own ends, and the recent juggling of dates on the 1980 Calendar, the acceptance of certain tracks or autodromes as suitable for Formula One and the cancellation of certain races tend to encourage these feelings. If a big petrol company, like ELF, or a serious motor...

THE 1970 season of GP racing continues to be full of mechanical interest, and brightest star on the scene is undoubtedly the Lows 72, two of which made their debut in Spain. The Lotus 72 is entirely new and also breaks new ground in current Grand Prix car design, at a time when a design-doldrum was perilously near. It is the result of knowledge gained from the Lotus 49, the Indianapolis cars and...

Phillippe in America

Motor Sport talks to the former Lotus designer behind the successful Parnelli USAC car Maurice Phillipe left Team Lotus, where he had worked elbow to elbow with Colin Chapman on some of the world's most advanced racing cars, just over a year ago. The Vel's Parnelli Racing Team, one of the top outfits in American USAC racing, had made him an offer he couldn't refuse. The 40-year-old Englishman is...

Notes on the cars at Nurburgring

The Ferrari that was damaged in the Regazzoni/Lauda mix-up at Brands Hatch, number 312T2/027, needed quite a lot of straightening out so was dropped from the team for the German GP and Regazzoni returned to his earlier car, 312T2/025. Lauda still had the latest car, 312T2/028, and his earlier car number 312T2/026 was standing by as a spare, but was not used. The specification of all three cars...

The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

All the fun of the Fair

An enthusiast visiting the USA can never fail to be enthralled by the fascinating array of different categories of racing available to the spectator. There are the big road racing events, like the Grand Prix at Watkins Glen and the Can-Am series, there is that multi-milliondollar Indianapolis attraction and countless other USAC events; one should not forget the car-shattering drag meets and, in...

American Comment

Sponsorship Clashes Hit USAC The USAC Championship Car series, which runs throughout the year in America almost entirely on oval tracks and includes such races as the Indianapolis 500, the Pocono 500, the Ontario 500 and a multitude of other smaller events, has run into sponsorship problems. During 1971 the series was sponsored by Marlboro cigarettes and thus became known as the Marlboro...

The Formula One Scene

Had I gone to Formula One races in South America instead of keeping my sense of proportion by staying in the mud, snow and ice of our winter, this article could have been entitled "Reflections in the South American Sun", and with the sun being so bright the reflections would have been even brighter. As it was I left the races in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo in the capable hands of A. H. On the...

Indianapolis 1972

The state of the art The year 1972 must be regarded as the year of the Eagle at Indianapolis, for clearly no other car had greater impact on the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway than the latest model Eagle from Dan Gurney's All American Racers in California. Although a single yard of cobblestone bricks to mark the start/finish line are all that remain of the millions that paved the original "...

Interview: Design on the Hills, translated by Mike Pilbeam

Looking at a top class hill-climb car, even with the most casual of glances, reveals that science has arrived in this formerly quiet backwater ot motor sport. The elongated cars immediately look ditterent from their circuit counterparts with their rearward extensions of the back aerofoils and bodywork devoted, through deep and graceful scallops, to developing the maximum possible downforce. The...
