The Expendables

Despite it being a new era for global touring car competition, seven tin-top action heroes are still setting the benchmarks Remember that movie The Expendables?

2014 Goodwood Revival

You always know what you’re going to get at the Goodwood Revival. The set dressing, the clothes, the cars, the smiling drivers… it’s the same every time. So how come it still manages to surprise and make its captivated audience, many of whom return year after year, gawp and gasp in amazement? We guess some things are never tiresome.

Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far.

Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

MGB

Some people look down their noses at this prolific sports racer, but they shouldn’t: the evergreen MGB has always been a useful track tool By Richard Heseltine Oh, how we scoffed.
