Home Rule for Mercedes

Continuing what now looks like a repeat whitewash of the World Sports Prototype Championship, the Sauber Mercedes team notched up another 1 —2 success at the Nürburgring in August. The Silk Cut Jaguars were fast and reliable, finishing in third and fourth places one lap behind, and Mark Blundell was "best of the rest" in a solo drive taking his Nissan to fifth place, three laps in arrears. It...

Under Scrutiny - Brun Technic

The Underdog Walter Brun, 1986 World Team Champion in sports car racing, will forsake Porsche in the year ahead and start the season as he means to go on, in a new car bearing his own name. The Brun, to be powered by a 3½ litre Judd EV V8 engine, is on course for testing and development well before the season opens in Suzuka. It is being constructed in Brun Motorsport's workshop in Stans,...

IMSA: Daytona 24hrs

Tom cats lick American cream As important to Jaguar as victory itself in the Daytona SunBank 24-Hour race was the psychological boost that it now has the machinery to go the full distance with reasonable reliability, at a speed to beat the Porsches. Le Mans, here we come! The opening round of the IMSA Camel GT series, was as usual a punishing contest in which the winning car was the one with...

WS-PC Season Preview

"Economy Racing" Era to End In October the Group C sports car formula will follow Formula One into the new decade, ruled by 3.5-litre normally aspirated engines. The `economy' era, dictated by the need to make 51 litres of fuel last 100 kilometres, will be ended to the delight of most drivers but the mechanism to equalise the performances of production block, racing, turbocharged and normally...

World Sportscar Championship: Norisring Cup

The Phoenix rises Eight hours into the Le Mans 24-Hours the Liqui Moly Porsche was a smoking ruin, almost destroyed by fire after an oil line severed. Nine days later the 962 was rebuilt by the Richard Lloyd/John Britten mechanics and was as good as new, and the point was proved when Jonathan Palmer and Mauro Baldi convincingly won the two-heat Norisring 360km 'sprint' race, beating a top-class...

Silverstone 1,000 Kms

Works Porsche lucky Two factors have conspired to reduce the apparent advantage of the factory Rothmans-Porsches this year and both were in play at Silverstone on May 13th when Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass were a shade lucky to win the World Endurance Championship 1,000 Kilometre race. The works cars are no longer appreciably lighter than the customer Porsche 956s, thanks to the new minimum weight...

Around and About

Sports Car Driver Shuffles As Martin Brundle returns to the Brabham Formula 1 team, his place with Silk Cut Jaguar has been taken by Derek Warwick who resigned from Lotus. Warwick, 36, was almost a founder member of the Tom Walkinshaw directed Jaguar Group C programme, having driven the XJR-6 to its first victory at Silverstone in May 1986. At the end of that season, he missed the Drivers'...

Controversy in East Midlands

Smoke pours from the vast, fat power station towers on the horizon between Nottingham and Derby, and although the gathering gloom concealed the fact at Donington Park, a smoke cloud of equal proportions rose above Tom Walkinshaw's motorhome. The Silk Cut Jaguars had been excluded from the results of the seventh round of the World Sports-Prototype Championship, on a track that might fairly be...

WEC: Hermanos Rodriguez 480kms

Schlesser takes all Even Mauro Baldi had to admit it. Jean Louis Schlesser deserved to win the 1989 World Championship for sports car drivers with a record of five wins in eight races, plus a second at Dijon and a third at Brands Hatch. His team, Sauber Mercedes, had a near perfect record of 19 starts (including Le Mans) and 17 finishes, and Mercedes' team director Jochen Neerpasch didn't mind...

Nürburgring 430 km

Derek's Day In the three months between the Silverstone 430 km race in May and the ADAC's Nürburgring event on August 17, Mercedes and Peugeot made great efforts to close the gap between themselves and Jaguar. In terms of lap times they were quite successful, narrowing a four second per lap chasm to less than one second, but their reliability factor hadn't improved at all. The two purple Silk Cut...
