Le Mans test weekend

Le Mans, April 10/11th. In order to give entrants a chance to prepare new cars for the 24-hour race at Le Mans, the circuit of the Sarthe was made available, for two days, and a fair proportion of the entry took advantage of the opportunity.

Clark Wins Seventh World Championship Race East London, Saturday, December 28th, 1963. Once again the final race in the World Championship series of Formula One events took place at East London on the warm sunny South East coast of Africa.

1990 British Grand Prix race report - Decline and Fall

  Hard enough to get to the top of any activity, especially Grand Prix racing, but it is even harder to stay at the top, because once there no-one will help you stay there, everyone tries to pull you off your pedestal from all sides. In his book The Racer, Hans Ruesch described the problem of the man at the top when he said: "When you are on a pedestal you must always look down, for there will be...

French Grand Prix

Matra one hundred per cent. Clermont-Ferrand, France, July 6th. Unlike the Monaco, Dutch, German and Italian Grand Prix races the French Grand Prix seems undecided as to where its real home is, so that it has flitted about from one circuit to another.

The Reims 12-Hour Race

A Nice French Event Reims, France, June 24/25th.  Coming only two weeks after the Le Mans 24-Hour Race, the Reims meeting could have suffered from a poor entry, but as it turned out it was a highly successful gathering of private owners and small factory entries that provided a most interesting race. The start was at midnight on Saturday, in the brightly lit pit area, with the 34 starters lined...

Red Bull set to lose out in engine mapping ban

Red Bull set to lose out in engine mapping ban The FIA's clampdown on the use of engine mapping in conjunction with blown diffusers could see a shift in the balance of power among Formula l's top teams.
