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...

SWC Magny-Cours

Home fire burning The Sportscar World Championship has been a one-sided contest this year, and the result of the sixth round at Magny-Cours, in central France on September 15 put Silk Cut Jaguar well on the trail of the main title. What nobody predicted was that the gallant Peugeot Talbot Sport team would turn the tables on Jaguar and fairly dominate the race with a 1-2 result! "If you'd told...

Cotton On

Countdown to the 1991 World Sportscar Championship A new era in sportscar racing opens at Suzuka, Japan on April 14, and a new interest is expected between Silk Cut Jaguar, Mercedes and Peugeot. With luck Walter Brun may have his Judd-powered Brun Gp C car ready, and Franz Konrad is working hard on his Lamborghini-powered contender, though their sights may be set on the European part of the...

Lola's Formula One heritage

1974: Graham Hill commissions the T370 for his fledgling Embassy-backed team. Looking very F5000, this proves a disappointment. It collects just a single constructors' championship point when Hill finishes a lapped sixth in the Swedish GP at Anderstorp. This occasion also provides his team-mate Guy Edwards with his best result of the year, seventh. 1975: Hill and Rolf Stornmelen begin the year...

So farewell then, SWC...

The Sportscar World Championship came to an end at Magny-Cours, France, on October 18 when Peugeot inflicted another comprehensive defeat on Japanese rivals Toyota and Mazda. Just eight cars took part in the 500 km race, the sixth and final round in the SWC series, and two of these were in the FIA Cup category where Chamberlain Engineering's Spice SE89C maintained its unbeaten record for the...

Track visit -- La Châtre

Le Mans, Rouen, Reims, Clermont-Ferrand... France had another international circuit using public roads -- in this case into the 1980s.  Marcus Simmons takes a trip back into obscure F3 history Photography by Glenn Dunbar/LAT  Leaning over the barriers, the team personnel could hardly believe it. Ten laps into this European Formula Three round and the entire field were still swarming around in a...

Never Mind The Quantity

The Le Mans 24 Hours was, after all, a success if measured as a sporting event, though a financial failure for the Automobile Club de l'Ouest. Next year's race will not be submitted to FISA for the Sportscar World Championship, and since Jean-Marie Balestre (president of the FIA and of the French Federation) has done a complete backflip and given the ACO his support, it seems unlikely that FISA...

New age travellers

Peugeot... Toyota... Porsche. Group C cars will be battling away at Le Mans for the last time, probably, to win the 24 Hours in style. Once the race is over, the V0 powered Peugeots and Toyotas will be consigned to museums, their short, shrill and exorbitantly expensive careers done with. The Automobile Club de l'Ouest will then have to decide, and quickly, on regulations to last out the 20th...

F3000 - International Trophy

At last years Daily Express International Trophy, the first-ever F3000 race, the 110% rule was waived to boost the grid to 17 starters. Seventeen was a fairly typical field throughout 1985 and though a total of 33 drivers raced in the formula, there were only six driver-car combinations which contested every round and these finally occupied the top six places in the Championship. Silverstone on...
