The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Formula Two review

After three rounds in what looks like being a tough year of Formula Two, there have been three different winners, in three different makes of car and using three different types of engine. The European championship was predictably being led by the little Frenchman Rene Arnoux in his Martini Renault but a number of very promising young newcomers to the FIA championship have emerged. These drivers...

The Le Mans 24 Hour Race

Rondeau's rendezvous Every year, the Le Mans 24 Hours proves something special, whatever the predicament of sportscar racing as a whole. It has a lot to with the unique atmosphere of the Circuit of the Sarthe, and the magic of a race that runs twice around the clock on an ultra-fast eight and a half mile course still largely composed of normal main roads. This year, however, the ACO's Grand Prix...

Jabouille narrowly heads French Renault invasion

Jean-Piere Jabouille snatched the European Formula Two title neatly from the grasp of Rene Arnoux in a tense final round confrontation at Hockenheim, Germany. The tall blonde Frenchman ended a six-year stay in Formula Two by stealing the Championship in the dying moments of a tough year. His spaceframe Elf 2 edged Arnoux's Martini out of the Championship by a single point, thanks to some...

F2 Review

Stuck the unbeatable The European Formula Two Championship which started at the splendid Montjuich Park circuit at Barcelona on March 24th looks like being dominated yet again by the Anglo-German alliance of the March chassis and BMW engines. The works car, driven by 23-year-old Hans Stuck, was unbeatable in the opening round in Spain, and the impressive young German followed up his first single-...

The British Players Grand Prix

A Motoring JamboreeSilverstone, July 19th An evening out at the circus is always pleasant, a full day at the circus is really enjoyable, but three whole days of circus is almost more than anyone can stand. The Royal Automobile Club and the British Racing Drivers' Club combined with Silverstone Circuits Ltd. and put on the greatest spectacular of all time. With practically every motor club in the...

Formula Two review

In June we predicted that this year's European Formula Two Championship would be a straight fight between the British works March team, with their German-built BMW engines, and the Elf-backed teams using French-built chassis and the powerful 300 b.h.p. Renault V6 engine. As the championship reached mid-season point that is exactly what happened and after seven races the tussle for supremacy...

South African Grand Prix

A retrospective view Kyalami, March 6th Although Niki Lauda won the South African Grand Prix in apparently comfortable style, this is in no way a reflection of the efforts of several other teams who rely on Cosworth's long-lived DFV 3-litre V8 for their motive power. At some points during 1975 one could almost sense that one or two teams had virtually given up the difficult task of trying to beat...
