Events of the month

BTCC Brands Hatch The crowd at Brands Hatch experienced something unusual during the BTCC finale: it wasn’t raining. Well, not for the first few hours, anyway. Not since 2011 had there been a dry championship decider, which has added to the excitement – or stress, depending on which side of the paddock fence you sit. But the track was dry as the grid lined up for race one, championship leader...

Little cars, big grids

Sir, I can only marvel at your dexterity in managing to compile a 10-page Historic Season Preview in the April edition of Motor Sport - without more than the briefest passing reference to the 2003 Historic Championship of the Year. I am speaking of Historic Formula Junior, in which one can - quite literally - race every weekend between April and October, and which has a pool of over 200 cars...

Matters of moment

I’ll be honest with you. Sam Posey was not the first person I asked to write an appreciation of the extraordinary Mark Donohue.

Two in a Row

Bob Berridge made it two in a row when he scored victory in the fourth round of the MOTOR SPORT-supported FIA Cup for Thoroughbred Grand Prix Cars at Nurburgring on June 23. However, in contrast to his dominant victory at Anderstorp two weeks before, the Geordie driver had to work very hard for this one with Martin Stretton (Tyrell 005) and Geoff Farmer (Tyrell 012) in very close attendance...
