Editorial

Motor racing 'threads' fascinate me. For instance, most research seems to lead to Len Terry at the moment. Over the past couple of years I've written articles about Dan Gurney's F1 Eagle, the 1965 Indy 500-winning Lotus (for a Ford magazine) and the BRM P126 — all of which stemmed from Len's red-hot drawing board. He tends to crop in unexpected places, too: Alpine's first streamlined Le Mans...

Editorial

My father's father went to the Donington Park grands prix of the late 1930s. They weren't his first big races, though. Whenever his business took him over to France, he always tried to fit an international event into his schedule. In this way he saw the 1925 French GP at Montlhery — it was so hot that the air-filled seat cushions in his Clyno were fit to bust! — and also spectated at a Dieppe GP...

The Channel Islands chancer

Boley Pittard was a racer renowned for his vibrant character as much as his driving skill. But in a deadly era of the sport, he was never to fulfil his potential By Paul Fearnley He was running wild by the end – and little wonder. The Nazis invaded the Channel Islands in June 1940, and stayed until May 1945. There was no résistance in the French sense, but small acts of sabotage and stubbornness...

British Motorsport under the cosh

As we went to press, British Motorsport was facing a three-way state of emergency: Silverstone was threatened with the removal of its 2002 grand prix to Paul Ricard in France. Britain's round of the World Rally Championship was being reviewed following an accident involving spectators and a competing car. And our latest world champion was embroiled in a contractual wrangle that could force him...

Book reviews

1946 And all that Guy Griffiths (Text by Anthony Pritchard) Published by Palawan Press, £125 To order: 020 7371 3060 or see www.palawan.co.uk They have done it again. From the sumptuous, embossed cover, to my favourite photograph — a grimacing Hawthorn, fingers in ears, attempting to blank out the shrill V16 BRM next to him on the grid — Palawan's latest offering is a gem. It features the work of...

Tiga economy

Although swamped by the spectacle of the factory Jaguars and Porsches slugging it out at the front, the semi-pros and the amateurs back in the pack were fighting tooth and nail for Group C2 honours in the 1980s. Paul Fearnley pays his respects to these unsung heroes. Lived in. Duncan Bain was here. So were: David Andrews, Michael Hall, Pierre Chauvet (aka Fritz Glatz), Max Cohen-Olivar, Giles...

Even though Simon Taylor’s Lunch with… features are famously lengthy, he usually struggles to cut them to fit in the magazine. That’s because over a good meal his targets relax and let themselves go – it was a mammoth four hours with Patrick Head this month. But excess material can be a blessing. When Lotus team manager Peter Warr died leaving his book unfinished, the family asked Simon to help...

It Takes Two to Targa

Both Porsche and Honda have recently released Targa versions of their rival 911 and NSX models. Which to choose? Mark Hughes was the man in the middle What a choice, eh? If only all dilemmas in life had such implications if you chose the wrong way. But there are those who would say, 'What is there to think about? A Honda or a Porsche?' Staffman Paul Fearnley found just such a person at a service...
