Fangio denied Tourist Trophy win by inspired Hales

The Fangio family's Goodwood jinx returned at the sixth annual Revival Meeting. The great Juan Manuel never won at the track, but his nephew Juan Manuel II looked set to nip this trait in the bud on his first appearance there — until the last lap but one. The lightweight E-type Fangio was sharing with Gary Pearson in the one-hour TT Celebration race was initially involved in a spectacular fight...

Goodwood Revival

St Mary's Trophy(20 laps) The first eight laps of this extended, two-driver touring car race had the crowd on its feet. Once again Justin Law was proving no respecter of reputations as he set about Gerry Marshall on this occasion. The latter may need an electric buggy to get around the paddock these days, but put him behind the wheel and it all comes flooding back. The joy of his driving is that...

On the road with... Simon Arron

Dirty HurryLydden Hill, February 22: European Rallycross drivers gather for pre-season testing Lydden Circuit presents a Festival of Motor Sport: racing cars, bangers, karts and rallycross." I have the programme still, dated May 31, 1976. It was one of my earliest trips to Lydden — and the venue hasn't greatly changed during the subsequent 37 years. Back then the paddock was packed with Commer...

Veterans shine in first saloon challenge

Former Grand Prix driver and retired team boss Jackie Oliver returned to his racing roots when he drove Jim Utting's Ford Mustang to third place in the first Top Hat Endurance Challenge event at Silverstone on May 27. Oliver, 57, who won the 1969 Le Mans 24 Hours in JW Automotive's Ford GT40 and the 1974 Can-Am title for Shadow, raced a Mustang in the early '60s before turning to single-seaters...

Racing beats rain

Beautiful cars and good racing shone through at Brands as dreadful weather failed to spoil an exciting new fixture on the historic racing calendar. Paul Lawrence reports The British Bank Holiday weather did its best to wreck the Masters weekend on the Brands Hatch GP circuit, but some great cars and an encouraging crowd proved that the concept is most definitely right. On track, Richard Meins...

Editorial

We are, I hope with some justification, quite proud that, for some reason or other, drivers seem happy not simply to talk to us but also to be frank about experiences which cannot be in the least bit comfortable to recall. You will have read Alain Prost on the subject of Ayrton Senna and, next month, Tony Brooks will explain why victory in what he regards as his greatest race was achieved at an...

Fast and glorious

Goodwood Revival "This is about the passion," said Patrick Tambay wearing a broad smile. The French ace was one of the galaxy of stars competing in the fifth Goodwood Revival meeting, and his drive to victory along compatriot Henri Pescarolo in the TT Celebration race was one of many highlights of a memorable event. The TT was a thriller, with the AC Cobra of Tambay/Pescarolo taking on the Jaguar...

Sparkling races a fitting tribute to Ken Tyrrell

The annual Silverstone Historic Festival had a fresh look and feel this year, with a new date and a revised race programme that brought more recent machinery to the weekend. Inevitably, the death of former BRDC President Ken Tyrrell on the eve of the weekend cast a shadow, but three days of racing from packed grids was a fitting tribute to the man, and Jackie Stewart drove some emotional laps in...

Fan of the future

Sir, I have recently returned from the Goodwood Revival Meeting, which I visited with my seven-year-old son Alex. It was his first visit to the event. He is what I imagine the future fan of motorsport to be, and (please pay attention Mr Ecclestone) the competitive racing of the historic racing cars has won him over. Until now a fan of a certain M Schumacher et a!, he most definitely now has '...

One-hour lesson

To my amazement I found myself mentioned in your Barrie Williams 'In the Hot Seat' feature (March), alongside such big names as Andy Rouse, Tom Walkinshaw and Win Percy. I could imagine readers around the world saying, "Nick who?" At the Spa Top Hat one-hour race in September 2011 had the loan of one of Norman Grimshaw's Cooper S Minis. Barrie was in the sister car. The first 20 minutes of the...
