The British Racing Scene 1

Above, such is the state of development of cars conforming to the RAC's Group I regulations that lap times recorded by the fastest Capris have all but equalled those of the old Group 2 racers. Here Brian Muir and Andy Rouse take Paddock Bend at Brands Hatch side-by-side with Vince Woodman shadowing. Left, driving a highly modified Ralt the dedicated Barzilian Nelson Piquet took an easy overall...

National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Lunch With... Steve Soper

This serial race winner and straight talker remained a factory driver for almost 20 years. No shortage of anecdotes here, then...Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell Most of the best drivers who earn their living in sports or touring cars have at least cut their teeth in the single-seater formulae. Steve Soper is different. This man racked up a fine career over more than 20 years,...

Herbert heads the stars at Goodwood Revival

Johnny Herbert heads a stunning line-up of famous drivers who will contest the St Mary's Trophy saloon car race during the Goodwood Revival Meeting in September. Each star name will be partnered with an amateur racer, often the owners of the cars, which are all from the 1957-66 era. Three-time grand prix winner Herbert will lead the stars in the extended two-driver 20-lap race, racing a Mini...

Derby Days

David McKinney reports on three action-packed HSCC days at Donington The HSCC's annual FIA Historic Championships meeting at Donington Park produced the familiar pattern of some good fields and some not so good, some exciting racing and some that was positively dull. Top billing on the busy three-day programme at the August/September cusp went to the FIA Cup round for Thoroughbred GP Cars,...

BMW win, Jaguar star

BMW win, Jaguar star Silverstone, September 9th THE 48th RAC Tourist Trophy was dominated by two things, the presence of the works Jaguars and the weather. The Jaguars, always a big box office draw at home, were doubtless responsible for attracting a good proportion of a crowd of over 15,000 who came not only to see them win, but also to see Tom \Valkinshaw clinch the ETC Drivers' Championship....

Whatever happened to the British tuning business ?

It would be easy enough to write off the go-faster business as one of those outlets for British ingenuity that died with the fuel crisis. After all cars are much more expensive than they were, speed limits abound, an Abbey National deposit account comes in handy to raise the deposit on a gallon of petrol and, only a few months ago, Daniel Richmond's widow decided to sell the name in the business...

Good cause for a celebration

Motor Sport is proud to sponsor this year’s Goodwood Revival, especially as it pays tribute to a special octogenarian… By Ed Foster Only a few weeks ago we were writing the Festival of Speed review, and here we are previewing the Revival. The gap between the two events is so short, and yet once again the team at Goodwood have come up trumps. The 12th Revival, on September 18-20, promises to be...

What's Happening in Club Racing?

It is quite impossible for Motor Sport to record the antics of everyone who takes part in the increasingly popular Club-racing scene, and we leave this task to the motor sporting weeklies. But it is still true to say that Club racing is the cradle of the country's Grand Prix talent, just as it was in the days when Richard Seaman and Mike Hawthorn, to mention but two, learned their skills at the...

After the first few rounds of the 1985 ETC Championship, it seemed that nothing could stop the TWR Rover team and that this series, which last year provided some of the most interesting racing in Europe, would degenerate into an ARG walkover. At Bmo, however, the Volvo 240Ts came into their own with the car of Anders Olafsson / Ulf Granberg leading that of Gianfranco Brancatelli / Thomas...
