Goodwood Festival of Speed

Bigger than ever and glorious as always, the 22nd Festival was significantly more competitive than in recent years. The supercar shoot-out proved hugely popular with the enormous crowd, and Sébastien Loeb’s record attempt in the Pikes Peak Peugeot 208 T16 had fans cheering all the way. The nine-time world rally champion took fastest time of the weekend, but was still three seconds away from Nick...

Matters of moment

We’ve been gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response to our Time for a Formula 1 Revolution cover story, run in the April issue. We published our framework for change on the conviction that the majority of Motor Sport’s readers have become disenchanted with the artifice of modern Grand Prix racing, and judging by the feedback our instincts were on the mark. The response from the...

>>Straight-talkin’ Petty >>Prost on the present >>Double points farce A step into the obscene?The F1 field heads for Turn One at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi in 2013. When the sport returns in November, drivers will be contesting the first double-points finale in the world championship’s 65-season history – a detail that sits uncomfortably with many.

No Lunch With... Richard Petty

A quiet superman who doesn’t brag about his 200 NASCAR wins, his seven championships or his charity work for disabled childrenWriter Simon Taylor | Photographer Jessica Milligan The great perk of this job is the privilege of getting to know, often quite well, so many talented, single-minded people who have carved out great careers in the cockpit, at the drawing board or in the pits. In doing so...

As an admirer of Mark Webber, it made sense for editor-in-chief Nigel Roebuck to pay the Aussie a visit in the off-season to talk about the Grand Prix world he’s leaving behind and what awaits him at Porsche. Nigel’s Reflections special starts on page 50. Andrew Frankel brings us the cover story this month after a dream drive in the car known universally as Uhlenhaut’s coupé – another gem for his...

Long Shadow of the Man in Black

He raced hard, reaped the rewards and divided opinion. Even 10 years after his death Dale Earnhardt’s influence is still being felt in NASCAR It happened 10 years ago on the last lap of NASCAR's traditional season-opening Daytona 500.

A team is reborn The wood brothers team is one of NASCAR's most respected outfits. Founders Glen and Leonard Wood are true Virginia gentlemen who have always turned out superbly prepared cars since the team's start in 1950. They are as much a part of NASCAR's history as the Peffys and Dale Earnhardt, and through the '80s their team was one of the most successful. So there was much to celebrate at...

America's all action hero

'He truly never met a race car that he didn't like. All US racing was clamped in an AJ Foyt stranglehold' Detractors of America's all-action hero point to his rare European forays. But Joe Scalzo argues that Foyt did enough at home to be classed a true great It was a great racing civilisation that America had going for itself in the mid-1960s, and certainly its highlight was getting to watch A J...

Showmanship and Stability the key to NASCAR success

Although the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) has been an exclusively post-war development on the racing scene in the United States, it now holds a position of strength as one of the healthiest racing formulae in the World.
