Seconds out

British F3, Crystal Palace, 1970 It was the penultimate round of the Motor Sport/Shell F3 series and Dave Walker’s win should have been headline news. Should, but wasn’t… Writer Simon Arron, illustrator Guy Allen The end was nigh for Formula 3’s 1-litre era – and this was a fitting reminder of just how good the racing could be. Aussie Dave Walker (Lotus 59) was tussling with Tony Trimmer (Brabham...

F3 review

The final four rounds of the Motor Sport/Shell Formula Three Championship built up into an amazingly exciting climax which was finally decided at Brands Hatch on October 18th. An earlier Brands Hatch qualifying event, on August 31st, had been won by Gerry Birrell, who was not previously very well placed in the Championship and had shot into the ratings with the help of some new Dunlop tyres. At...

Ring the changes

15 minutes of fame. Motul M1: 1973 Norisring F2 Motul raced for just one season in Formula Two, in 1973. However, despite peaking with a 1-2-3-5 finish at the Norisring, boss Ron Dennis shut it down. Bruce Jones explains why It will come as no surprise that McLaren supremo Ron Dennis is not a man who takes being beaten lying down. So, when Rondel Racing, the team that he ran with Neil Trundle,...

PROSPECTS FOR THE NEW SEASON THE institution by MOTOR SPORT and Shell of an International Championship for this season's Formula Three racing has plainly provided this class of the sport with just the impetus it needs. Despite the "graduation" of last season's top four F3 performers to Formula Two, despite this being the last year of the present 1-litre regulations, and despite the complaints...

Formula Two review

Jarier scores maximum points Ford fight back Two opening rounds of the European Formula Two Championship at Mallory Park and Hockenheim were crushing victories for the combination of a March chassis, a BMW engine and the promising, if somewhat impetuous, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jarier. The two subsequent rounds of this important competition have both shaped up as further honours for Jarier but,...

Formula 2 review

The European Formula Two season effectively came to an end at Vallelunga at the beginning of October when Ronnie Peterson secured the European Trophy with a convincing victory in the 22nd Rome Grand Prix. Thoughts that Peterson might be toppled from his domination of the Formula Two scene were high after the qualifying round at Albi in central southern France a fortnight before the Italian event...

REFLECTIONS - Amid the excitement, DRS is a gimmick too far - It's time the Formula 1 got rid of the 'one move' rule - A joke or several courtesy of Frank Gardner You could hardly fault the Chinese Grand P • in terms of action — and this on a track rdly renowned for it.

Racing round-up

Mallory Park, March 14th Formula Two racing returned to Mallory Park, for the first time in almost four years, with a vengeance in the middle of the month despite the entry list dwindling from over 40 hopefuls down to the 19 starters on the grid. As only twenty were going to be allowed to start it didn't matter much anyway and though some F2 names were missing the field was certainly...

Race of Champions

Brands Hatch, March 21st I don't think anyone will argue when I say that Stewart is easily the best driver in Formula One racing today, and that the flat-12-cylinder Ferrari is by far the most powerful Formula One car at present. The fact that a Ferrari won the Race of Champions and Stewart was second would appear to confirm this, but it was not as simple as that. Graham Hill recorded the fastest...
