Fitzpatrick Racing:

from driver to owner “If I don’t drive any more, at least I can say I went out on a successful note,” commented John Fitzpatrick after announcing his new sponsorship deal with Skoal Bandit smokeless tobacco in London early in March. “I won the European Endurance race with Derek Warwick at Brands Hatch, a Can-Am race, an IMSA race, and a European Touring Car Championship trace with Jaguar, so you...

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...

French resistance

AGS emerged from behind Henri Julien’s garage in the south of France, made the grade in Formula 2, flowered briefly in F1, and was gone By Johnny Tipler When the boules clack under the plane trees in sleepy Gonfaron I won’t look at those old boys by the fountain in quite the same way again. One of them has quaffed champagne with Alain Prost and tasted international success in Formula 2. He’s...

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 . . ....

Tyrrell's Trophy

Ken Tyrrell's Formula One team now has an unassailable points lead in the Colin Chapman Cup for non-turbo cars, its Cosworth DFZ-engined machines having scored 102 points by the end of the Hungarian GP in the hands of Jonathan Palmer and Philippe Streiff. The only other cars contesting this category in 1987 are the March 871 of Ivan Capelli, the Lola LC87 of Philippe Alliot and the AGS of Pascal...

Formula One: Belgian GP

Near disaster After the race at Imola, in Italy, the "circus" moved north to Belgium for the next round in the Formula One Championship series. Unlike a true travelling circus the teams did not move en bloc, but all sped back to their homes in Italy, Germany. France and England where rebuilding, development, testing, and experiment continued, together with analysis and reckoning on the results of...

A Welcome Return

Montreal, June 12 The Canadian Grand Prix was cancelled last year, mainly due to a dispute between the two big Canadian breweries, Labatt and Molson, as to who should sponsor the event. The decision finally went to Molson's Breweries, but only after the closing date for FIA/FISA acceptance, and in addition to this big-business wrangle there was also the question of the pits and paddock...

Formula One: San Marino GP

A miracle Miracles do happen in motor racing. We saw one at Imola during the San Marino Grand Prix. It may not have been quite the sort of miracle the tifosi had in mind for Ferrari once they'd seen the times the McLaren-Hondas turned in during testing and again in qualifying, but it was a solid, 99-carat, bona fide miracle all the same. Not so many years ago, we'd now have been talking of...

Formula One: Portuguese GP

End of entente? Alain Prost will always have good reason to remember the Portuguese Grand Prix. He started it from pole position and he turned it into his 33rd career victory, but there was more. He was delighted with a success that was a vital step back in the direction of his third World Championship, but it was also the race in which he felt his team-mate Ayrton Senna had come within inches of...

Interview: Roberto Moreno

Third time around When all eyes are focused on the front row of the grid at Silverstone, and most likely on Ayrton Senna in particular, spare a thought for one of his compatriots who had a taste of the big time when Senna was in Formula Ford but who is only now having a second bite of the apple. It was as a 22-year-old Formula Three driver that Roberto Moreno was offered a Lotus test-drive. Who...
