Grand Prix Historique, Monaco

What is it about Monaco? The high-rise apartments have trashed the old Victorian elegance, the streets and traffic are brain-fryingly chaotic and the almost palpable smell of money leaves a vulgar aftertaste. And yet no matter how many times you go back, each visit lures you in. You become transfixed. Perhaps it’s the glimpse of lives most of us can barely imagine. Mostly, at least in the month...

Le Mans phenomenon

In the mid-1980s a privateer team pulled off a remarkable feat in winning the classic Le Mans 24 Hours race two years running. Joest Racing was the team and its Porsche 956, backed by jeans company NEW MAN, proudly carried BP stickers. In 1984 the 956, driven by German star Klaus Ludwig and French legend Henri Pescarolo, took the victory. It was Pescarolo’s fourth win of four from a remarkable 34...

Lancia joins 4wd club

There can be nothing more galling than to see your design rendered obsolete before its service life has even begun, but that's the prospect facing development engineers at Austin-Rover, Mitsubishi, Citroen and, probably a few more establishments around Europe and the Far East. The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, and the Lancia Delta S4 announced a few days before Christmas, have trumped all rivals adhering...

Cotton On

Corporate Cowardice Already hard-pressed for business and profits, the world's airlines are now hit again by the Gulf war crisis. Many major international companies have forbidden their staffs to board international flights, and the first effect of this in motor racing was the absence of Olivetti's Rolando Argentero from Daytona, on the first leg of his contract to time the IMSA series. This...

Le Mans 24hrs: preview

Equipes et pilotes Only a provisional list of Le Mans entries, without any confirmed drivers, was available at the time of going to press, and some of the race numbers had yet to be allocated. Traditionally this is a time for wishful thinking for some teams (though these dreams have to be backed up by a hefty non-returnable entry fee), but Mike Cotton and Ian Briggs speculate as to which machines...

World Endurance Championship: Monza 1000kms

WEC — Round 2. Rothmans-Porsche beaten at last! The Porsche factory's sportscar team has not been beaten in a World Endurance Championship race since Derek Warwick and John Fitzpatrick trounced the Rothmans cars at Brands Hatch in September 1983, and the inevitable defeat came at Monza on April 28th. The Monza 1,000 Kms (or 800 Kms, as it turned out) was a memorable event. On Friday Hans Stuck...

Bell's fourth Le Mans success

Derek Bell became the most successful English driver ever to compete at Le Mans when he notched up his fourth victory on June 1, driving the Rothmans-Porsche 962C with Hans Stuck and Al Holbert. Three of his victories were shared with six-times winner Jacky Ickx; Olivier Gendebien and Henri Pescarolo have won four times, and four drivers have won the 24Hour race three times. The list of...

Monaco Grand Prix Historique

God Save the Queen rang out for six of the seven races at the eighth Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, as British drivers – plus Kiwi Roger Wills – stamped their mark on the prestigious biennial event. American Duncan Dayton proved the exception to the rule, thanks to a brilliant drive from the back of the grid to win the Pre-73 Formula 1 race for 3-litre cars in his Brabham BT33. Highcroft Racing...

Nurburg 1,000 kms

An eventful race Nurburgring May 29th. The last World Championship race ever to be held at the Nurburgring resulted, predictably and deservedly, in a win for Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass in a Rothmans-Porsche 956. Deservedly because the Belgian's name has been almost synonymous with the nordschleife circuit (as it is with Le Mans and Spa) since the day in 1967 when he threatened to make a mockery...

Under scrutiny: Japanese sports-car teams

Nigel Stroud, who designed the excellent honeycomb aluminium/composite materials chassis, has been retained not only to develop the 767B, but to design the 31/2-litre car for 1991 as well. The "B" which raced at Daytona, and will run in the World Championship, has improved cooling with a single water radiator and a single oil cooler, both larger than the twin units seen last year, and the exhaust...
