Lunch with Eddie Jordan

He’s the racer-turned-team boss whose wheeling and dealing helped him scale the heights of Formula 1 – and bring a sense of fun to the grid It’s safe to assume that we will never again see the like of Jordan Grand Prix. As the financial and political qualifications for entry into Formula 1 become ever tougher, and the paddock becomes more and more serious and straight-faced, so the possibility of...

Legends - Ken Tyrrell

"In a time when motor racing was conducted with integrity and passion, one unique character graced the stage of Formula One. His name was Ken Tyrrell." The narrator's opening words set the tone of a fine new film about a man whose achievements, it seems to me, have always been curiously under-documented. It has been made by Mark Stewart Productions, and no company could be better placed for such...

The hares and the tortoise

A late regulation change led to the Porsche factory withdrawing from the Daytona 24 Hours in something of a huff. It didn’t prevent Stuttgart winning in the face of a fierce Ferrari armada, however… Unbeknown to the organisers, IMSA's 24-hour Daytona enduro was scripted in Hollywood. Actor Paul Newman, just turned 70, teams up with NASCAR ace Mark Martin to drive a Jack Roush Ford Mustang which...

Brian Henton

At thirty-six-years old, Brian Henton can probably best be described as one of international motor racing's eternal optimists. Over the past 12 years he has won championships in Formula Vee, Super Vee, F3 and F2, but always seems to have been thwarted in his efforts to establish himself in Formula One. Last year, as Michele Alboreto's partner in the Tyrrell line-up, he demonstrated a solid...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

— An air of foreboding Zolder, May 9th WITH the Imola "strikers" returned to the lucrative world of Formula One, the Belgian entry was full to overflowing, but their union shop-steward made it clear that he and his men intended to employ "disruptive methods" and protest against anything and everything. Consequently, although the entire entry was ready to go on Friday morning a lot of people were...

My greatest race: Rene Arnoux

United States Grand Prix (Dallas), 1984 A terrible car, crumbling track and starting in last place gave Rene Arnoux the perfect motivation to put on the performance of a lifetime. Really, I don't have a best race. for me, the greatest thing was just 11 years in Formula One, being able to do what I did, with good people, especially the mechanics. I felt a special bond with them because that's how...

Enzo Ferrari's right-hand woman

In the tightly-knit world of F1 everyone knows who Brenda Vernor is: from 1978 until his death in 1988, this native of Croydon was Enzo Ferrari's right-hand woman as well as 'mother figure' to the racing team . . . We recently had the chance to reminisce with her. Photo: Motorsport Images Enzo Ferrari has always been regarded as an institution in Italy. In fact, someone once suggested that first...

The worst car I ever drove - A dream in ruins...

The chance to drive for Ferrari was his dream job. Little was he to know how badly it would turn out. Adam Cooper reports. Most of the drivers who've related the tale of their 'Worst Racing Car' can now look back on the experience with a smile. It may have been awful at the time, but at least it gave them an amusing story on which they've been able to dine out over the years. For Ivan CapeIli,...

Matters of moment

Endurance racing It was intended that this season should see a renaissance of endurance racing, but with the opening rounds at Brands Hatch and Mugello cancelled because of lack of sufficient entries (the race at Monza on April 18th was scheduled to happen after we closed for press) the prospects have been depressing. We must hope for a recovery in time for this month's BRDC Six-Hour race at...

Showdown in Hockenheim

As a circuit the Hockenheimring will never replace the old Nürburgring, where the German Grand Prix was held for so many years, but it has developed a sort of negative character of its own. While the twisty bit inside the huge stadium is not as exciting as Mallory Park or the Club Circuit at Brands Hatch, the long curving sections out to the Ostkurve and back are fast, making for an average speed...
