The art of giving up gracefully - Jonathan Williams

For every driver who makes it to the select world of Formula One, there must be 20 who have set off down this ambitious road and failed to make the grade for one reason or another. In the mid-1960s there was a whole host of enthusiastic young British drivers contesting the 1-litre Formula 3 category, all of them hell-bent on making their names in the upper echelons of the sport. They included...

Chequered history

The Chequered Flag was among the most visible race and rally teams of the '60s and '70s. Richard Heseltine catches up with former principal and wheeler-dealer Graham Warner Well that's progress for you. Earlier this year another slice of motor racing lore slipped away unobserved and without comment: the Chequered Flag on Chiswick High Road is no more, razed to make way for an apartment block....

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...

SILVERSTONE, April 26th IT SEEMS that the great majority of Formula One entrants these days feel that the only incentive to take part in races is when there is the lure of World Championship points. Thus over the past four or five years the number of full-scale non-Championship races has dropped drastically to just the couple at the start of the season in Britain. An attempt to run a non-...

'Weld' war three

Roy Pike beat the best Formula Three had to offer in his new Titan. But then the plug was pulled after just one full season. Damien Smith explains why. Born in a pique of anger, the Titan Mk3 still turned out to be a very pretty single-seater. Not only that, it was also a winner. In the hands of Roy Pike, it became a front runner among the Brabhams, Tecnos and Lotuses during the heady excitement...

Lap record goes at Boxing Day Brands

Once again good weather blessed the opening of the B.R.S.C.C.'s Boxing Day race meeting at Brands Hatch, although snow began to fall during the journalists' race and became quite heavy by the end of the day. The first race was a 10-lapper for over 1,600-c.c. G.T. cars, which looked to be a straight fight between Ken Baker's E-type and Mike Salmon's Zagato Aston Martin as the Ferraris of Piper and...

Formula 3 in retrospect

Whatever happened to the likely lads? In the late 1960s any aspiring Formula 1 ace simply had to get into Formula 3 somehow or other. These days we're used to Grand Prix drivers emerging from other categories such as Formula Atlantic or even Can-Am and the system of progression is far less predictable than it used to be. Formula 3 is currently enjoying a particularly healthy time and, in...
