Phoenix in waiting A distinctive 1960s racer is coming under the hammer, but will need lashings of TLC I will declare an interest. I offer consultancy advice (often justifiably ignored) to auctioneer Bonhams, whose Goodwood Festival of Speed sale includes some real rarities. Among these are the (hopefully) still restorable remains of a uniquely significant ex-Jim Clark sports-racing car – the...

The Motor Sport Month - Formula 1 News

Todt defends engine choiceJean Todt is standing by the controversial 2013 F1 turbo rules, despite opposition from Bernie Ecclestone and most of the teams.

Ferrari and McLaren: jury out on which is fastest

To no one’s great surprise Ferrari and McLaren have been the teams to beat through Formula 1 winter testing, but any real comparison was made difficult by the fact that the two teams avoided each other in early February. McLaren joined the majority of the teams at Barcelona on February 1-3 and Jerez on February 13-15, while in between Ferrari ran a pair of three-day test sessions at Bahrain with...

Portuguese Grand Prix

Brabham Yet Again Porto, August 14th This year it was the turn of the Portuguese Grand Prix to go north to the town of Porto, where the race was held in 1958, and the same 7.407-kilometre circuit was used, unchanged from two years ago. I then considered it a true road-racing circuit and I still do, being fast (over 110-mph average) and containing all the hazards of a true road race, especially...

American Comment

THE 1969 Can-Am series has been completed and despite all the dire forecasts by the prophets of doom there now seems little doubt that it was a success. It is true that the series was completely monopolised by the McLaren team, with McLaren scoring six wins to Hulme's five and the pair of them finishing first and second in all but three of the eleven races.

Racing USA

News of USAC & SCCA events The past few weeks have seen a good deal of action in three of the United States major motor racing championships. In USAC racing the third of the three big 500s was run at Ontario and Roger McCluskey scored a surprise win in his last year's McLaren when the favourites all dropped out. In the Can-Am series the L. & M. Porsche of George Follmer seems to have the...

Mexican Grand Prix

Mexico City, November 3rd, 1968. The final round of the World Championship Grand Prix season for 1968 took place at the Mexico City circuit in the outskirts of this huge city. The cars had been sent down by road from the U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen which took place four weeks earlier. The delay between the United States and Mexican Grands Prix was more than usual this year, due to the...
