Continental notes

A number of readers have expressed surprise that I do not spend the winter months chasing the motor racing to warmer climates, going to Watkins Glen as soon as the European season finishes, and then on to Mexico, California, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Such a world tour would be quite feasible, and it need not finish in Australia, for on the way back to Europe one could take in...

Trevor Taylor

Lotus Grand Prix driver Trevor Taylor has died from cancer aged 73. At the peak of his career he was team-mate to Jim Clark, sharing one victory with him and on one occasion beating him in a non-championship F1 event, but he was not a lucky driver and a number of accidents, not necessarily his fault, overshadowed his abilities. He made up for luck with Yorkshire grit, repeatedly bouncing back...

Reflections on the Monaco G.P.

I admit freely that tears of emotion welled up in my tired old eyes as I watched Jim Clark pull out a five-second lead in the first three laps of the 1964 Grand Prix of Monaco. It seemed unbelievable that anyone could go that much faster than the rest of the field when for the past three days of practice all the fast drivers had been within tenths of a second of his best time, and yet there are...

Peter Arundell

Where are they now? When Peter Arundell moved into the Lotus Grand Prix team at the start of the 1964 season, succeeding Trevor Taylor as number two to Jim Clark, his future appeared encouragingly bright. He'd mastered Formula Junior and opened his first full Formula One season with two fourth places and a third at the wheel of a Coventry Climax-powered Lotus 25. Unfortunately a terrible...

Lunch with... Lola

Lola’s founder and its saviour recall 50 years of entrepreneurial effort which has taken in almost every category of motor racing By Simon Taylor There are easier ways to make money than by building racing cars for sale. In fact, the major makers since the 1950s – the likes of Cooper, Lotus, Elva, Brabham, March, Reynard – have all, for one reason or another, hit the buffers and disappeared. The...

Lunch with... Richard Attwood

This English gentleman upset his father by racing for longer than he was supposed to, but success at Monaco and Le Mans in particular made it all worthwhileBy Simon Taylor Richard Attwood could never be anything but English.

Second to none

F1 success was slow to come, but in F2 the spectacular Jochen Rindt set the benchmark – even for Clark and Stewart By Paul Fearnley It was the ‘Summer of Shove’ – for Jim Clark at least. All-of-a-sudden Cosworth DFV shove. Most powerful engine, world’s best driver and most advanced car – the just-bolt-it-on-the-back, still-a-bit-twitchy Lotus 49: no contest. From June 4, when he dominated the...

Old Glory's Goodwood

American cars and drivers played a small but intriguing role in the history of the circuit. Paul Fearnley picks out the transatlantic highlights — and lowlights Goodwood is quintessentially British; there's nothing quite so red, white and blue as the South Downs. There is, however, a tinge of Stars and Stripes within that... It was the effervescent, Paris-born, card-carrying American (when it...
