Standing room only

Getting a drive in Formula One is becoming harder by the year. In 1993, it's probably been tougher than ever. The recession hasn't just caught up with those teams fighting to keep up with the ever-spiralling cost of taking part, it's already overtaken several: in the recent past, we've lost AGS, March, Fondmetal, Modena-Lamborghini and Brabham. Combine this with the increased longevity of modem...

Ferruccio Lamborghini

From humble beginnings as a producer of tractors, Ferruccio Lamborghini emerged as a creative and eye-catching automotive engineer. In the mid 1960s, his 350GT (335 bhp, 0-60 mph in 6.8s and a top speed in excess of 150 mph) and 400GT were much admired, but it was the 180 mph Miura which engrained the Lamborghini name on public consciousness. Until the arrival, 10 years later, of the Countach,...

SWC Mexico City

Double and quits It took a while for the Silk Cut Jaguar team to react to the success in Mexico. Derek Warwick was heading for second place in the Sportscar World Championship encounter and made a late dash to the pits for slick tyres, all the better on a drying track to catch race leader Keke Rosberg. It was a racer's choice, not a strategist's, and the gamble failed when the Jaguar's starter...

Two Pros At Work

If Alain Prost's brilliant manoeuvre had worked at the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix's 49th lap, the Frenchman still would have been the leader of the World Championship chase after 76 gruelling laps of the tortuous Hungaroring. Instead, team-mate Ayrton Senna yet again pushed the nose of his Honda Marlboro McLaren first across the finish line, 0.529 seconds ahead of Prost. It was the team's...

Rock'n Roll'n Racing

Forget playing Wembley Arena – the stadium that Nick Mason loves best is in France, just outside a small town called Le Mans The door is open at the top of the metal staircase. Enter the large upper-floor warehouse office and you’re met by three objects which offer a perfect snapshot of the man who owns this place: on the left is a Formula 1 car that at first glance looks like a Patrick Tambay...

WSC -- Suzuka

The Lion Pounces Racing the 905 sports car only for the third time, the Peugeot-Talbot Sport team cruised to a one-lap victory at Suzuka on April 14, the first round of the World Sportscar Championship. Fittingly the reigning World Champion drivers, Mauro Baldi and Jean-Louis Schlesser, took the first two places, the Frenchman having wrung what he could out of the heavily ballasted Mercedes C11...

Salvage operation

It may not be a vintage year for endurance racing, but Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans goes ahead on June 20/21 with a very attractive grid of Group C prototypes. In theory, the race should be won by a Peugeot or a Toyota, but if none of their six 3.5-litre 'hares' should go the distance without trouble an old-fashioned 'tortoise' is likely to seize a controversial victory. Could it be a Jaguar...
