May I suggest a running challenge and a new monthly feature for the FIA (Todt), Ecclestone...

Cobra Memorabilia

Sir I was very interested to read the article on Graham — son of Michael — Turner in April's MOTOR SPORT and in particular to see the reproduction of his painting of Phil Hill driving the Cobra at the 1964 Targa Florio. I enclose a photograph of the painting that Michael Turner did of the Hill Cobra at the same event, which is signed and dated '1964', so it would appear that Graham was...

Hooked on racing since Stirling’s Aintree win, Mike Doodson has been Team Lotus press officer and part of the BBC F1 commentary team, while earning renown as a racing journalist. It’s his friendship with Nelson Picquet that gives us real insight into the contrary Brazilian’s psyche. Writer Chas Parker started out in astronomy before diverting to motor racing, but alongside both careers he’s been...
