Ring the changes

15 minutes of fame. Motul M1: 1973 Norisring F2 Motul raced for just one season in Formula Two, in 1973. However, despite peaking with a 1-2-3-5 finish at the Norisring, boss Ron Dennis shut it down. Bruce Jones explains why It will come as no surprise that McLaren supremo Ron Dennis is not a man who takes being beaten lying down. So, when Rondel Racing, the team that he ran with Neil Trundle,...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club Scene Rondel F2 Car Announced Several months ago in this column we announced the news that the go-ahead Formula Two team, Rondel Racing, had formed an alliance with Denys Dobbie and that with his backing they would construct and race their own Formula Two car and, possibly, also a Formula One. Since then Rondel have recruited Ray Jessop from Motor Racing...

The German Grand Prix

Well done Regazzoni Nürburgring, August 4th: For what it was worth the German Grand Prix was given the title of the European Grand Prix this year, a dubious honour it last received in 1968. As long as it remains a 14 mile-per-lap drive round the Eifel mountains the Nürburgring will always remain the Nürburgring, no matter how much it is smoothed out, widened or made easier, for the better the...

Jody Scheckter - Better than trophies

Silverware doesn't mean much to me but the cars I raced through the '70s do. They are prized relics of my old life and each has a story of its own. They're not a bad investment, either By Damien Smith The past is of little relevance to Jody Scheckter. He lives in the moment, so buffalo, mozzarella and ice-cream fill most of his waking thoughts — and probably his dreams, too. Laverstoke Park, his...

The Daily Express International Trophy Meeting

A splendid motoring garden party Silverstone, April 6th/7th One good thing about British sponsors is that they expect their teams to appear at British meetings and because of this there were some hurried returns from Sunny South Africa on the part of Lotus, McLaren, Surtees and Lola and with them came Brabham, BRM and Hesketh, to take part in the 40-lap Formula One race at the annual BRDC...

The Grand Prix in Belgium

A nice little race Nivelles-Baulers, May 12th The Belgian round in the World Championship series took place on the Nivelles-Baulers Autodrome, south of Bruxelles and the scene was almost identical to that in Spain, reported in detail elsewhere in this issue. Missing from the lists was Chris Amon with his own car, while added to it was Tom Pryce with the neat Token car designed by Ray Jessop,...

1976 National Single-Seater Prospects

An abundance of British single-seaters exists in Britain —but how many categories can prosper? We may be in the depths of economic depression, but you have to dig well below the surface to discover any depression where British championship motor racing is concerned. A few months ago we discussed the prospects for saloon cars in Britain and Europe, but on this occasion we will try to restrict...

The Prince of Wales

Tom Pryce was a Welsh country boy with an amazing talent. Marcus Simmons tells the story Jansen van Vuuren is loving this. Usually he works as a booking clerk at Jan Smuts Airport, but this week the 19-year-old from Johannesburg has taken up station at the nearby Kyalami circuit for the 1977 South African Grand Prix as a fire marshal on the pit straight. Suddenly, at the end of lap 21, he has a...

The Formula One Situation

Apart from one mild fluttering the situation in Formula One racing regarding teams, drivers and cars, was surprisingly stable when the 1975 season began in Buenos Aires on January 12th. A full three months had elapsed since the last Grand Prix race in 1974, which was at Watkins Glen on October 6th, and during that time things have been very quiet from the point of view of drivers changing teams,...

More than a Token effort

He’s had tough times in F1, taken titles in F5000, and switched from sidecars to Learjets. Still racing 46 years on, Ian Ashley relishes it allBy Richard Heseltine He smiles in a manner that appears more resigned than amused. It’s clear that Ian Ashley has heard the same question in various guises all his professional life. “Ah, the ‘Crashley’ thing,” he says, raising his eyes to the ceiling. “...
