Thinking inside the box

Massive computing power allows a British company to streamline and test cars before they’re built, and even drive them virtually By Gordon Cruickshank Success has been heading Acura’s way in the ALMS sports car series. Good news for Honda, parent of the Acura badge. But racing is always about teamwork, and Acura has a significant but unsung team-mate here in Britain. You don’t see the Wirth...

Italian Grand Prix

What a race! Monza, Italy, September 10th. As the Italian G.P. was to wind up the Championship races in Europe there was something of a do-or-die atmosphere about the paddock as the teams began to assemble at Monza prior to the first practice period on Friday afternoon. Ferrari, Cooper-Maserati and A.A.R. Eagle had already been going round in private test sessions, the Maranello team trying out...

Continental Notes

The 1969 Porsche racing programme will be concentrated on two major activities, long-distance sports/prototype racing and rallies, and for the first tune since 1963 Porsche factory cars will not be taking part in the European Mountain Hill-Climbs, though it would be no surprise to see one of the 1968 ultra-lightweight "Bergspyders" being run by a private owner.

"I was very demotivated over the last few weeks. There were a lot of things: the big crash in Estoril, then I was sick for two or three weeks. With this FISA case hanging...

2011 F1 Season Preview - Murray's view on the year ahead

Is he excited at the prospect of so many potential GP winners? Of course! If the 2010 Formula 1 season was good, 2011 has the potential to be even better. Until the cars have done two or three races and we've seen what the comparative form is, nobody knows what's going to happen.
