We don't smoke . . .

The Shell/Motor Sport F3 Championship, which was won in 1971 by Dave Walker, has been won for 1972 by Roger Williamson, Bernard Wheatcroft's prodigy, driving a GRD 372. He was duly awarded the Motor Sport prize consisting of a framed self-portrait by William Sibbons. Shell have now relinquished this Championship to John Player so the Motor Sport prize will not be awarded this year.

Formula Two review

Tragedy and disorganisation at Rouen The annual Formula Two race at the impressive Rouen Les Essarts road circuit has always been a favourite. The track itself is fast and extremely challenging, the surroundings are extremely pleasant and the meeting has always had a relaxed air. This year it was rather different and a shadow was placed over the whole proceedings by the death in practice of the...

Williamson takes early lead

After the first three rounds of Shell Super Oil Formula Three Championship, the qualifying races of which count for the Motor Sport Trophy at the end of the year, the situation is rather confusing. One of the stipulations of the Shell Championship is that all contestants display decals advertising the championship if they are to score points and collect the prize money. However, before this rule...

The man who played with fire

Hockenheim brought the spectre of fire back to Grand Prix racing. In his first interview for almost two decades, former BRM chief Louis Stanley, who pioneered means of eliminating such risk, recalls the days when safety was a dirty word In his heyday on the Grand Prix circuits Louis T Stanley cut an imposing figure. Tall and corpulent, ruddy of face and silver of hair, his blue blazer and old...

Letters

Letter of the month Fear of the past? Watching coverage of the German GP qualifying session, I was struck by how poorly F1 connects with its past. The Sky team made brief mention of the old Hockenheim, Jim Clark’s death and John Surtees winning in Germany, but their focus is on the here and now. I don’t blame broadcasters for that, but F1 should do far more to connect with the history of the...

Lunch with... David Brodie

For much of his 50 years in British racing he was a serial winner, and he rubbed shoulders with the Formula 1 crowd as wellWriter Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell As we know, Formula 1 has pretty much taken over the motor sporting world. It gets almost all of the media coverage, almost all of the money and virtually all of the glory. A whole new generation of people who think of...

All work no playboy

Forty years have passed since the sport lost one of its most misunderstood – and underrated – talentsWriter Andrew Frankel I’d known about the autobiography of Peter Revson for years, but never felt inclined to read it. Revson’s was a supporting role on the global motor racing stage: not a bit part for sure, but he was certainly no superstar either. Besides, Revson only got that far thanks to...

Full and frank disclosure

There’s something about drivers from relatively humble beginnings that means they never lose sight of the bigger picture, and I class Steve Soper as one of them. Open and honest, he never finds it too difficult to tell the truth. I enjoyed seeing him in the Radbourne X1/9 – you knew he was good and would go places, much like former Anglia racer Roger Williamson. I wasn’t aware of the reason Steve...

Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Reflections in the Transvaal

Any reflections on the South African GP must of necessity be tinged with sadness and regret at the death of Tom Pryce in a stupid accident that was nothing to do with him. It is most unlikely that he even saw the accident about to happen, travelling as he was at 160 m.p.h. If a driver is killed through making a driving error, you can shrug and accept it as all part of the game of "dicing with...
