Lunch with... David Brodie

For much of his 50 years in British racing he was a serial winner, and he rubbed shoulders with the Formula 1 crowd as wellWriter Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell As we know, Formula 1 has pretty much taken over the motor sporting world. It gets almost all of the media coverage, almost all of the money and virtually all of the glory. A whole new generation of people who think of...

The Rothmans 50,000

Brands Hatch, August 28th Early in 1971 John Webb and his band of merry helpers at the Brands Hatch racing circuit announced that they would hold a special race on August Bank Holiday 1972. It was to have two outstanding features, (1) it would be open to any type of racing vehicle, and (2) first prize would be £20,000. There were numerous other interesting details, such as the length being 118...

Continental Notes

THIS season Grand Prix races have been so full of interest and excitement that reports have tended to over-run the Editorial limits and in consequence Continental Notes has had to be omitted. It has been purely this limitation on space that has curtailed these notes, and not a limitation on activities, for the faithful Porsche, even after well over 150,000 miles, continues to be flogged around...

The ADAC 1000 Kilometres

Victory for Martini-Porsche Team Nurburgring, May 30th The ADAC 1,000-kilometre race was held only two weeks after the Targa Florio, so the Porsche teams were still licking their wounds and the Alfa Romeo team was very confident. As at the Targa Florio the Porsche factory loaned 908/03 models to their two main customers, the J.W. Automotive-Gulf team and Hans-Dieter Dechent's Martini...

The B.O.A.C. 500 at Brands Hatch

A Porsche Domination This year's B.O.A.C. 500 was the European opener in the 1969 World Sports-Car Championship and, though held in cold, windy, overcast conditions, the six-hour event proved entertaining enough to be able to live up to its reputation as a Championship qualifying round. One may argue that six hours is too long to let the teams fight it out at full stretch and too short for the...

The Sebring 12 Hours

(March 21st/22nd) FERRARI'S DRAMATIC VICTORY AS SPRING follows winter so the Sebring 12-hour race follows the Daytona 24-hour race and the field at the 12 hours is often a reflection of the earlier 24-hour race. Not quite so this year, for in addition to the three-cornered Porsche/Gulf, Ferrari and Matra challenge, there was also a full team of three Alfas. The obvious favourites after their...

The 34th German Grand Prix

Return to Sanity With the 1972 season passing its midway point Grand Prix races are happening with great rapidity, being held every alternate weekend, so that there is little time for the teams to do other than repair the ravages of the previous race before the next one is due. A very full entry arrived in the Nurburgring paddock for the German Grand Prix and they were all on time and ready to go...

European letter

[By means of which our roving European reporter keeps in touch with the editor.] Dear W.B., Last month I mentioned about the desirability of Europe being all one country and how nice it would have been had money stabilised and found equality from one country to the next, Only recently I had a classic example of this when I had to get from the Monza 1,000-kilometre race, which was held on a...

Matra team repeats the dose in North America

Watkins Glen, July 21st. A medical man would describe the Ferrari sportscar team's health as "as well as can be expected", with one round to go in the 1973 World Championship for Makes. At Watkins Glen late in July two Matras and three Ferraris fought out the 6-Hour Race on the Grand Prix circuit and the event ran true to current form: Cevert claimed pole position, was delayed early in the race...

Ferraris dominate Sebring

Sebring, March 25th. It is a strange quirk of the International calendar that two of the World Manufacturers Championship events for sports cars happen within just over a month of each other in the same state of the USA. The state is, of course, Florida and this year the second of the two races came as a welcome relief after the State Primary for the Presidential election. Indeed, the papers had...
