Fuels paradise

The opening rounds of this year's European F3000 Championship have contained several surprises, all but one of them welcome. The exception was the late decision -18 days before the race – to switch the third round of the series from Jerez to Barcelona, long after teams and other associates of the formula had committed money to non-returnable flight and hotel deposits, not to mention extensive...

Formula 3000

Allez France This time one year ago, Formula 3000 was the focus of attention for all the wrong reasons. A spell of midsummer madness led to no fewer than six stoppages in four consecutive races. Several drivers were injured and the final step on the ladder to a Grand Prix berth did not seem like a good place to be. Happily, there has been no repeat. Instead, we have been treated to a fascinating...

The month in Motor Sport

Mar 16: The Lola T92/50 F3000 car proves quick in testing. DAMS confirms a two-car order on the strength of Jean-Marc Gounon's lap times at Le Mans, the first time the chassis has run in the dry. Mar 18: Mark Kent, one of America's leading saloon car racers, loses his life in a testing accident at Sebring.

Advantage Badoer

The European F3000 Championship is looking more open than it has done for many seasons. Halfway through what should be a 10-race schedule, only nine points separated the top six in the championship, and series leader Luca Badoer, as consistent as he is fleet, has only clocked up 22 points, despite finishing every race to date in the top six. It is quite feasible, if unlikely, therefore, that the...

British Formula Three Championship

The Formula Three race supporting the Grand Prix is the twelfth in a series which has featured close and interesting racing. All the competing stars of the future will be wanting to put on a good performance in front of the Grand Prix team managers. As a protege of Keke Rosberg, Jyrki Jarvilehto (now universally nicknamed JJ Lehto) has much to live up to, but having won five of the first nine...

Far From The Madding Crowd

Even if there'd been 50 cars on the grid the result wouldn't have been any different. We would have won." Derek Warwick's post-race comment at Le Mans seemed very appropriate at the time, and would have served equally well at Donington a few weeks later. The two Peugeot 905s raced virtually nose-to-tail for three hours and fairly dominated the Toyotas, albeit by a mere 28s at the finish. Thanks...

The month in MOTOR SPORT

Dec 11: Speculation that Sauber may continue to run in the SWC is heightened when both a C11 and a C291 are seen testing at Paul Ricard. Dec 12: The latest round of F1 testing concludes in Barcelona. Riccardo Patrese emerges quickest after three rain-blighted days. Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill also go well for the Didcot team, while Martin Brundle shows well for Benetton. Aguri Suzuki has his...

Lord Luca

Shortly after the Portuguese Grand Prix, several F1 teams stayed on to conduct some serious testing. Some of them used their sojourn in Portugal to evaluate a few F1 rookies. One of these was European F3000 series leader — and soon to be champion — Luca Badoer, who was allowed 25 or so laps in one of Scuderia Italia's Dallara-Ferraris. It was one of only two glitches in Badoer's season. In the...

99 and counting

It has taken an official pre-qualifying session to whittle down an extraordinary number of Le Mans entries to a manageable level The surge of interest in the ACO's 24 Hours of Le Mans continues. Three years ago, when the event was tied to the mast of the FIA's sinking ship, it attracted a grand total of 28 entries... and production-based GT cars were strictly prohibited. This year the ACO...

Breaking the mould?

Success in the European F3000 Championship has, in the past, been excellent news for drivers . . . but a gloomy omen for teams. The statistics are quite astonishing. Since Christian Danner graduated to Grand Prix racing on the strength of his victory in the inaugural championship in 1985, each of his successors has followed suit. As yet, Danner, Ivan CapeIli, Stefano Modena, Roberto Moreno, Jean...
