The Goodwood Festival of Speed

It's the first unmissable event of the Historic year. To whet your appetite — and to make sure you don't miss it — Paul Lawrence guides you through... Nowhere else in motorsport will you find an experience quite like it. For three days the drive of Goodwood House is converted into an arena for the great and the good of the sport to play to the gallery. This is motor racing's annual garden party....

Distance as detterence

Whilst the world's major rally teams, including those of Japanese manufacturers Toyota, Mazda and Mitsubishi, are based in Europe, it is small wonder that a great deal of heart-searching is done before any of them embark on an event which takes place at the other side of the world. To transport an entire works team from one side of the globe to the other is costly, and the expenditure is...

New peaks to conquer

He’s surely modern motor sport’s most versatile man, but endless success has not diluted Sébastien Loeb’s appetite for a challenge Writer Anthony Peacock So there it is. The end of an era, or perhaps the dawn of a new one. After more than a decade of effortless dominance of the World Rally Championship (to the extent that he won every single stage of the 2005 Tour de Corse, for instance)...

Lombard RAC Rally

It was a great shame that an event of the calibre of the RAC Rally, and final round of the World Championship, should begin with a squabble, albeit of a domestic nature and confined to just one of the competing teams. It certainly didn't affect the rally itself, but when the outcome was announced it became a general talking point, until, that is, the first car left the start ramp on the Sunday...

Matters of moment

Two weeks ago I found myself hurtling through the Karussel on the Nürburgring's legendary Nordschleife with one Porsche 956 filling my Windscreen and another in the mirrors. At first I thought it was one more variation of a recurrent dream. Cars of this calibre stopped racing around the 13-mile track over a decade ago and, even had they not, it was hard to think of circumstances to place me on...

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012

The motor manufacturers’ stands are bigger than the showrooms in most towns these days, but thankfully some things don’t change at the world’s best celebration of motor racing. There’s something heart-warming about the familiarities of the Festival of Speed: the glories of the Cathedral Paddock, the straw bales that line the hillclimb, the view on the walk back from the Rally Stage. These are the...

King Carlos

One of the reasons for New Zealand's great enchantment and fascination is its remoteness. No one ever goes there on the way to somewhere else because there's pretty well nowhere else to go. It has thus escaped most of the ravages of popular tourism. It is by no means a backward country - its cities, resources and amenities are as modern as any you will find in the world but the visitor cannot...

Reports in brief

John Burton's Chevron B26 and the Lola T222 of Peter Schleifer took a victory apiece when the Orwell Supersports Cup ran at Magny-Cours, home of the French Grand Prix, in late May. Burton won the opener by less than a second from the B19 of MSA chairman John Grant, before Schleifer won the second easily after the Chevrons tangled. * * * Porsche 911 man Dessie Nutt maintained his unbeaten run in...

Worthy Victor

When a championship series comes to a close, the customary sequel is a victory celebration, with slaps on the back for the champion, congratulatory hand shaking, autograph seeking and the popping of champagne corks. Alas, when the 1986 World Rally Championship ended with December's Olympus Rally in the USA, the champagne was decidedly flat, for even though all thirteen events had been run, no-one...

Rally Review

Criterium du Quebec Continents of such vast size as North and South America would appear to offer enormous potential to rally organisers, but the truth is that the sport is little progressed beyond infancy in the Americas and certainly attracts nothing like the public enthusiasm and support which it does in Europe and elsewhere. In North America in particular spectators are very few indeed and it...
