Two decades of the Dakar

It started as a new year’s jolly for high-living Frenchmen in the 1970s but became a high-tech showpiece in the ‘80s. Jeremy Hart looks at the most gruelling rally of them all – the Paris-Dakar January 1982. Tears at Number 10, newsreaders scrabbling for a map of north-west Africa and travel agents panicking to get News of the World scribes on the first plane to Timbuktu. Lost, for reasons still...

The 1990 Formula One Teams:

The 1990 Formula One Teams: McLaren-Honda: The Woking-based McLaren team are preparing a new series of cars, designated MP4/6, using whatever version of the Honda V10 that the Japanese firm produce.

Meanwhile Gerhard Berger has joined the...

Group C asides

Glenn Waters' TOM'S Toyota GB operation will run a two-car...

Adelaide 1986 The result at Indianapolis meant that we were denied a three-way title showdown. That's a shame, because the last time this occurred, at Adelaide 17 years ago, when Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet and Alain Prost were the protagonists, remains the most dramatic Formula One race I have ever seen. It was pouring down as we arrived in Australia. Prost looked gloomily at the skies. "I...

Formula One Preview

The 1985 season of Formula One Grand Prix racing gets under way in April after a pretty busy winter of testing by most of the teams. The only serious change in the regulations has been that the rear "wings" have been clipped, the additional side "winglets" that most people have been using have been outlawed so that rear aerofoils have now become quite tidy and neat contraptions. A major change...

Woking back to happiness

1987 British Grand Prix race report - Sunrise over Silverstone

  On Sunday, July 12 the sun rose over the Silverstone circuit with promise of a remarkable day, even though there were those who murmured "too bright, too early; not a good sign". We had survived two days of practice and qualifying for the Grand Prix, together with practice for the numerous supporting races, and some of the supporting races themselves. Nigel Mansell chases down Williams...

An almost perfect result

Once again the Williams duo ran away and hid, but just how much of their superiority was due to active suspension? It was as predictable as it was impressive, really. The second Williams 1-2 of the season, that is. There was not much that was spectacular about the motor racing at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, but as ever the undercurrents held fascination. Prior to the event Williams designer...

The Pug that flew

As Group C climaxed with its 3.5-litre regulations in the early Nineties, Peugeot developed a prototype so extreme, yet so reliable, that it could race for 24 hours at Formula One speeds. Gary Watkins tells the story of the fastest-ever sportscar Take out of the equation those pedal-to-metal laps around the old eight-mile Spa-Francorchamps or the pre-Hella Licht-S Osterreichring, and a Porsche...
