Lunch With... Paul Tracy

This ever-determined, hard-charging Indycar driver didn’t always mind his Ps and Qs but invariably gave his all in the cockpit Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer Michael McNamara These days your average professional racing driver tends to be slight and slender. He is unfailingly polite to team personnel, to sponsors and to rivals, and speaks to the media in unexceptional sound-bites while a PR...

States school

And so the Nigel Mansell express was derailed at Mid-Ohio. Like Alain Prost, Mansell started the weekend of September 12 poised to clinch a championship. Unlike Prost, however, Mansell knew almost instantly on that Sunday that he'd have to wait at least another weekend (the Nazareth round took place as this issue of Motor Sport was being printed) before being crowned 1993 champion. With Mansells...

A new broom sweeps in

By Gordon Kirby Over the past 30 years Indycar racing has gone through a dizzying number of regimes and management teams. Most of these went badly and the debilitating effect of the 14-year CART/IRL civil war left Indycar racing as a dumbed-down spec formula with dwindling crowds, tiny TV ratings and an impoverished sponsorship market. Now comes a new regime led by accomplished sports promotion...

Different Class

While the Indy Racing League stumbles uncertainly into life, David Phillips contends that things have never looked better for the CART/PPG World Series How times change. For years critics of IndyCar have lambasted the PPG Indy Car Series for courting casual fans at temporary circuits while real fans and permanent race tracks withered on the vine. Last month, the new Indy Racing League, conceived...

British Grand Prix Preview -- Judd

At the Heart Engine Developments Limited is the racing engine manufacturing company of John Judd, and, like many first generation firms, the imprint of the founder is very much present on the cornpany and its products. John Judd is an Englishman, and few firms are more English in character than Engine Developments. The products of the firm also display English virtues: Judd's engines embody years...

That's entertainment?

And so the 77th running of the Indianapolis 500, the self-proclaimed 'Greatest Spectacle in Racing', is history. It was a remarkable race for any number of reasons, ranging from Emerson Fittitpaldi single-handedly slaying the Ford/Cosworth hordes to Nigel Mansell's splendid speedway baptism by fire and the astonishing facts that the top six cars were covered by six seconds at the finish, four...

Full credit available

At the risk of being branded a heretic, I'd like humbly to suggest that observers of IndyCar racing have been a tad harsh in criticising Championship Auto Racing Teams over the years. True, the restless team owners reversed their field once again last month in Indianapolis when they tossed out the five-vote/seven-man Board of Directors in favour of the "one-franchise/one-vote" Board system that...

Nissan takes charge

The Japanese advanced on Le Mans, scaled the walls and conquered the 24 Hours. After that, Daytona was a doddle! Nissan's NISMO team ran a comprehensive test on the steep, 220 mph bankings last year but withdrew their entries on account of the Gulf war. All the data was checked exhaustively and the R91CP was perfectly prepared for this year's race, enabling the all-Japanese crew to dominate the...
