Gugelmin Clinches F3 Championship

Formula 3000

Red flags, black marks TS Eliot once contended that "April is the cruellest month". He was wrong. August is worse. For the European Formula 3000 Championship, August 1988 was the blackest period since records began in March 1985. There were two races. Both were in Britain, both were a complete farce, and a total of four drivers were taken to hospital, two with serious injuries. Indeed, the latest...

City slickers

Street racing in Britain has been to Motorsport what Holland has been to Downhill skiing, but the vision of one man gave it a foothold. Had it received a vital leg-up at the right time, it might still be with us. David Malsher recalls the rise and of fall of Birmingham's Superprix For those living outside Birmingham, the Superprix erupted out of nowhere. Even readers of the specialist Motorsport...

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...

After the first few rounds of the 1985 ETC Championship, it seemed that nothing could stop the TWR Rover team and that this series, which last year provided some of the most interesting racing in Europe, would degenerate into an ARG walkover. At Bmo, however, the Volvo 240Ts came into their own with the car of Anders Olafsson / Ulf Granberg leading that of Gianfranco Brancatelli / Thomas...

History from the heart of England It finally happened. After years of effort and disappointment, Birmingham had its race. Motor racing has been with us for ninety years but we, in mainland Britain, had never before been able to see it take place on the streets of a city.

Modena's Latest Thoroughbred

If ever there was a racing driver who ought to be in F1 on the strength of his name, it is Stefano Modena. The 23-year old Italian even comes from the city with which he shares the name, not so far from the Ferrari factory at Maranello. He first came to my attention a couple of years back at Monaco, where he pulled a Formula Three overtaking manoeuvre into La Rascasse hairpin in such an audacious...

A Brazilian Proving a Point

Roberto the racehorse had a successful career, capped by a 1972 Derby success with assistance from Lester Piggott.

Since the formula introduced a "B" class for year-old cars in 1984, and went 'flat bottomed' last year, it has gone from strength to strength. Twenty nine runners started at Thruxton, there were a further seven entries who...
