Formula Two Review

Giacomelli's Crown Italy has crowned its first European Formula Two champion. At Hockenheim, in Germany, on September 24th Bruno Giacomelli won the final round of the series in his works March-BMW 782, but the boy from Brescia had actually clinched the title nearly two months earlier at Enna Pergusa, in Sicily. Our review of the series in the August issue of Motor Sport took us up to Giacomelli's...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

The Argentine Grand Prix

A good start Buenos Aires, January 13th With Christmas and the New Year over the Formula One scene was soon in full swing and air freighters-were taking the cars to South America for the first of the 1980 races, with the drivers and team personnel soon following, clutching their Enteroviaform and Ambre Solaire, for the Argentinian food and summer, respectively. As the 1979 season ended there were...

Notes on the cars in North America

The planning of the Formula One calendar is such that the two races in North America that close the season, are arranged on consecutive weekends so that the teams can pack their cars and spares for a single round trip across the Atlantic by Cargo plane and arrive as prepared as possible for a two week stay away from base. Those teams who were involved in the Goodyear tyre-testing session at...

The years of the Rat

Niki Lauda is nothing if not a fighter. As he reaches 60, he talks to Motor Sport about some of his biggest battles in racing and in business It comes to us all, I suppose, but the notion of Niki Lauda celebrating his 60th birthday on February 22 seems just a touch difficult to believe. Three times World Champion, the Austrian ace – to use the apt title of his autobiography – has been To Hell and...

Formula Two Temporada

March again... For the first time since 1972, the European Formula Two teams returned to South America for a Temporada series in early November. Only two races were staged in Argentina after long-drawn-out negotiations, but the success of the venture, and a crowd of 50,000 spread over the races at Mendoza and Buenos Aires, has encouraged the organisers to plan a more ambitious Championship next...

What... in my backyard?

Those who thought Formula One racing at Oulton Park and Mallory Park had been consigned to the history were startled in 1978, when John Webb made this dream happen all over again. Gary Watkins describes the birth, life and death of the Aurora AFX F1 series Kids can be so greedy. Surely the spectacle of Gilles Villeneuve dragging half his Ferrari around Zandvoort and Alan Jones notching up a...

Dizzy heights: 40 seconds per lap in F1...

Lapping Mallory in 40sec in a ground-effect F1 car — 75 times — must have taken pretty high fitness levels, but that's exactly what happened in the Aurora-backed series. Emilio de Villota was the circuit's star man — he had already won a Shellsport Group Eight round in 1977 with the F1 Lyncar, and another later that year in a McLaren before adding two Aurora victories in 1980 with his RAM Racing...

Notes on the Cars at Buenos Aires

Ferrari: As with many other teams curing the winter, the Ferrari factory took three of their 1979 cars and dismantled them down to the last rivet and then built up new and redesigned cars from the bare bones. The cars they dismantled were 312T4/037, 039 and 041 and the new cars that resulted were 312T5/042, 043 and 044 of which Scheckter took the first, Villeneuve the second and third was the T-...

Objectives of Desiré

Desiré Wilson could mix it with the best in single-seaters and sportscars. Richard Heseltine charts why, given a change of luck, she could have been a Formula One star A few weeks after storming the Brickyard in May, Dan Wheldon arrived for the Indycar race at the Texas Motor Speedway wearing a T-shirt announcing, 'Actually, I won the Indy 500'. While this could be interpreted as glory-mongering...
