Japanese measure up the Porsches

Signs that Group C racing will get stronger, and that the challenge will come from the Orient, were seen in Japan when the Fuji 1,000 Kilometre World Endurance Championship race was run early in October. While Honda involve themselves in Formula 1, both Nissan and Toyota were represented by teams with turbocharged 2.1-litre production-based engines which acquitted themselves well, the Nissan-...

Oh, and...

Formula One scene: Australian GP

The end of an era Adelaide, November 13 On the face of it, it was all just another crushing McLaren-Honda demonstration run, as Ron Dennis' machines sped to their tenth 1-2 of a season in which the team has re-written the parameters of Formula One. Alain Prost apparently cruised to his seventh win of 1988 and another nine points, which brought his total to 105, although thanks to the silly...

Formula One: Japanese GP

The Wolf at the Door In the end, the slope on Suzuka's grid worked against Alain Prost, not just once, but twice. It allowed not only Ayrton Senna to roll his stalled McLaren forward sufficiently to restart twice, but also Satoru Nakajima to do likewise. Senna, of course, was the more significant threat to the Frenchman, but the Japanese Lotus driver was also to play a significant role . . ....

Rock hard

Manfred Winkelhock never backed off in life or in racing.

Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport.

My only Grand Prix

1989 Monaco Pierre-Henri Raphanel How did you end up at Coloni for 1989? I had money from La Cinq TV channel, as well as a manager for the first time. I chose to go to Coloni because Christian Vanderpleyn and Michael Costa were moving there from AGS. It was a small team but it looked a good opportunity. Is it true that you almost didn't drive for the team at Monaco? My sponsor hadn't paid and a...
