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. Each Revival leaves defining images that linger, then blend in...

Fitzpatrick Racing:

from driver to owner “If I don’t drive any more, at least I can say I went out on a successful note,” commented John Fitzpatrick after announcing his new sponsorship deal with Skoal Bandit smokeless tobacco in London early in March. “I won the European Endurance race with Derek Warwick at Brands Hatch, a Can-Am race, an IMSA race, and a European Touring Car Championship trace with Jaguar, so you...

Gunnar Nilsson: a friend and a fighter

Gunnar Nilsson relied on his precocious talent to get to F1. But when he contracted cancer, he relied on motor racing friends for support as he battled the disease By Chris Witty Photo: Motorsport Images The world was a very different place back in 1978. In Great Britain the Labour Party, led by Jim Callaghan, was desperately hanging onto power with Margaret Thatcher and the Tories waiting...

Notes on the Cars at Jarama

With the Spanish GP opening the season for Formula One Championship races in Europe there was a lot of pre-race testing going on at the little Jarama circuit and some of it was useful for the race itself and some was purely experimental. Since Porsche revealed last year that they had been racing cars with solid rear axles, that is with no differential unit, relying on the distortion in the tyres...

Lunch with... Adrian Reynard

Innovator, improviser, impecunious... The founder of a famous British racing institution has been all three, but right now he's flying high once again By Simon Taylor Motor racing is dangerous: it's a truism that doesn't need repeating. And motor racing can be dangerous commercially, too. On the balance sheet as well as on the track, risk can reap huge rewards but can also result in huge crashes...

The German Grand Prix

A popular win Hockenheimring, August 8th THE great concrete stadium that forms the major part of the Hockenheimring is not the most pleasant place even when the sun is shining so when the skies are grey, and threatening rain, it is truly forbidding. The only spark of imagination in the place as far as the drivers were concerned was the very fast Ost – Kurve at the far end of the circuit, which...

Silverstone 1,000 Kms

Works Porsche lucky Two factors have conspired to reduce the apparent advantage of the factory Rothmans-Porsches this year and both were in play at Silverstone on May 13th when Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass were a shade lucky to win the World Endurance Championship 1,000 Kilometre race. The works cars are no longer appreciably lighter than the customer Porsche 956s, thanks to the new minimum weight...

Continental Notes

It now looks as though there is more than meets the eye in the "manoeuvrings" to get the German GP away from the Nurburgring. One "ministry man" involved with the Constructors Associations is clutching on to a fading document said to be "signed by all the F1 drivers" in which they unanimously agreed not to race at the Nurburgring in 1977. This was signed by those in action at the time at Monaco...

FIA Graded Drivers

With the arrival of the official FIA Yellow Book for 1979, containing all the rules and regulations for International events of all categories (see page 150), we have the list of drivers who have made the top grade. This year's elite is a bit of a mish-mash containing Grand Prix drivers, the winner of the Indianapolis 500 and those who have been successful in the rather emaciated world of Long...
