Chevron wins Supersports Cup and Sports prototype trophy

Chevron B19 Racer Jonas Qvarnstrom put memories of a torrid 1999 season behind him when he secured the International Supersports Cup on the French Grand Prix circuit at Magny-Cours on 1 October. The veteran Swede, who raced 1-litre F3 cars against up-and-coming compatriots Ronnie Peterson and Reine Wisell in the late 1960s, triumphed in the series' most competitive class, for 2-litre Group 6 cars...

Farmer's union with March reaps rewards

BRDC: Silverstone Marking its 75th anniversary, the BRDC added a series of quality historic races to a contemporary Formula Three/British GT meeting on the Grand Prix circuit. A rare visit from the Orwell International Supersports was the star attraction and it was BRDC member Geoff Farmer who won both races. Aboard the Dodkins Motorsport March 717, Farmer maintained his victorious Dijon form,...

As easy as 962

Group C Round-up Ralf Kelleners won both races as the Group C season concluded at Monza in October.

Six.wheel Tyrrell stars at Paul Ricard

The stunning debut of Simon Bull's six-wheeled Tyrrell P3 - driven by Martin Stretton at France's Paul Ricard circuit over Easter - suggests champion Bob Berridge will not have an easy ride in the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship. Despite minimal test mileage on Avon's experimental 10in front tyres, 1996 champion Stretton qualified the ex-Ronnie Peterson car within 0.19sec of Berridge's...

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...

Only letter of the law can stop Justin

The initiative to bring Group C cars to four rounds of the British Touring Car Championship got off to a shaky start at Brands Hatch over Easter. A slender field of around a dozen cars arrived for a 20-minute sprint race and a 40-minute feature race. Unfortunately, the late running of the meeting meant that Monday's planned two-driver enduro ran a meagre three laps before the curfew hour arrived...

Donington Historic Festival

Donington Park, Derby On only its second running the Donington Historic Festival confirmed its status as one of the best UK events of the season. Wall to wall quality, big entries and some great racing was the story of the weekend; and when the sun came out on Sunday, so did the crowds. For a man whose mainstream racing career ended half a century ago, Sir Stirling Moss remains a huge draw and on...

More race outings for ex-Clark Lotus 30

An ex-Jim Clark Lotus 30 will compete in Sports-Racing Masters events this season in the hands of Paul Whight. He hopes to use the 1965 car more regularly in 2009, having only raced it twice at Goodwood in recent times. “We’ve been trying to get it to work since I bought it three years ago,” said Whight. “It was bought on a whim; it’s an animal of a car.” Bob Dance rebuilt the car, having worked...

Group C cars steal International Supersports thunder

As a double-header support race to the British Touring Car Championship, the International Supersports Cup drew a disappointing field to Donington Park in late September. To bolster the grid, half a dozen Group C cars were added and, inevitably, dominated the race. While the Spice SE90 of Chris Randall swept clear in both races, it was Peter Hoffman who headed the older cars in his McLaren M8F....
