The B.O.A.C. 500 at Brands Hatch

A Porsche Domination This year's B.O.A.C. 500 was the European opener in the 1969 World Sports-Car Championship and, though held in cold, windy, overcast conditions, the six-hour event proved entertaining enough to be able to live up to its reputation as a Championship qualifying round. One may argue that six hours is too long to let the teams fight it out at full stretch and too short for the...

XXI Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. sweeps the board Monte Carlo, May 26th. This year it was the turn of the Monaco Grand Prix to be called the Grand Prix of Europe, but more important it was the first Grande Epreuve of the 1963 season. This was unfortunate in some ways because it did not encourage anyone with a new design to try it out, the accident hazard on the street circuit being rather formidable. However, some new...

German Grand Prix

Some Man's Motor Racing Nurburgring, Germany, August 3rd. After the 1,000-kilometre race in June, when Siffert set the fastest lap of the Nürburgring in practice at 8 min. 00.2 sec. with a Porsche 908, and Amon did 8 min. 00.3 sec. with the Ferrari 312P, I remarked that no self-respecting Grand Prix driver would be content with a lap sit over 8 minutes if practice for the Grand Prix would be held...

IV Mexican Grand Prix - Honda Win

Mexico City, October 24th This year's Mexican Grand Prix contrasted drastically from last year in so far as in the last race for 1964 the Championship was not decided, while far 1965 the Championship had been clinched back in August at the German Grand Prix. Of the three drivers whose fortunes were in the balance until the last lap drama 12 months ago, the champion was unable to return this year...

Continental Notes

IN spite of all the fuss and furore that the English raised over the past two years about the 1961-64 Formula for Grand Prix racing, it has now begun and is with us for the next four years. Various manufacturers who said "We won't support it" and drivers who said "We won't drive 11/2-litre cars " are still with us I am happy to say, and the racing scene is quite unchanged and is just as fast and...

Lunch with... Chris Amon

He didn’t achieve the results that his enormous talent merited, but no matter: F1’s ‘unluckiest driver’ is just glad to have lived to tell the taleBy Simon Taylor Today’s media like to give our heroes convenient labels. Stirling Moss is “the greatest driver never to win the World Championship” – a glib line which says nothing about The Boy’s unrivalled versatility, or his racer’s heart. In the...

XX Grand Prix of Monaco

A race of decimation Monte Carlo, June 3rd. Due to a shuffling of the calendar this year the Monaco G.P. was not the first Grande Epreuve, the Dutch G.P. already having been held, so that everyone arrived in the Principality ready to do battle, this year's form having been indicated at Zandvoort, where B.R.M. ran away with the race. Once again the entry of 16 cars for the Monaco race was decided...

XXI Belgian Grand Prix

A fine win for Lotus Spa, Belgium, June 17th. The wonderful 14.1-kilometre circuit that runs between Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot, in the hills near Spa, needs little introduction to followers of Grand Prix racing, and this year everyone was looking forward to the Belgian G.P. with keen anticipation as it was to be the first time that the new British Grand Prix V8 engines could be wound up...

36th Italian Grand Prix

That Apprentice from Scotland Monza, Italy, September 12th With no major Grand Prix race since the German Grand Prix at the beginning of August, the factory teams had plenty of time to prepare themselves for the annual high-speed race at Monza, on the 5.75-kilometre road circuit. A very full entry was received and Lotus, Brabham, Ferrari and Centro-Sud fielded three-car teams, the Ferrari one...
