Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

WS-PC Season Preview

"Economy Racing" Era to End In October the Group C sports car formula will follow Formula One into the new decade, ruled by 3.5-litre normally aspirated engines. The `economy' era, dictated by the need to make 51 litres of fuel last 100 kilometres, will be ended to the delight of most drivers but the mechanism to equalise the performances of production block, racing, turbocharged and normally...

W.S.C. - Norisring — short and sharp

As World Sportscar Championship events go, the Norisring 200 Meilen was unique. Much against the wishes of most entrants for this round of the Drivers' Championship it was run as a single 79-lap race, all over and done with in 67 minutes, and for that afternoon's work Klaus Ludwig collected 20 points, as many as he might have garnered at Le Mans. It's Just as well that OSCAR, the entrants'...

When Mercedes turned it up to 11

Twenty years ago the marque teamed up with Sauber to produce the C11 – a car that ruled all and influenced a return to F1By Gary Watkins The first pure-bred Mercedes-Benz racer for 35 years. A World Championship winner. The car that gave us Michael Schumacher. The machine that laid the foundation stone of the German manufacturer’s graduation to F1. The Mercedes-Benz C11 can claim all those...

World Sportscar Championship: Norisring Cup

The Phoenix rises Eight hours into the Le Mans 24-Hours the Liqui Moly Porsche was a smoking ruin, almost destroyed by fire after an oil line severed. Nine days later the 962 was rebuilt by the Richard Lloyd/John Britten mechanics and was as good as new, and the point was proved when Jonathan Palmer and Mauro Baldi convincingly won the two-heat Norisring 360km 'sprint' race, beating a top-class...

World Sportscar Championship: Monza 1000kms

Big Cat-trick! It may be too soon yet to claim that Jaguar has Porsche on the run in the World Sportscar Championship, but John Watson and Jan Lammers took a faultless victory in the Monza 1000km race on April 12, and put the Jaguar company firmly at the top of the Teams' Championship. Three successes in four weeks is a marvellous start to the new season for the Silk Cut team run by Tom...

From Parity to Superiority?

The Silk Cut Jaguar team came close to winning the 1986 World Sportscar Championship despite taking the chequered flag only once, at Silverstone, and its effort will be even more effective this year. The Porsche teams will increase their strength, though, and the Kouros Sauber-Mercedes team will run a new car, or cars, in five or six races. In other words what was a good, if rather short World...

WSC -- Le Mans 24 Hours

The writing was on the wall. Thousands of British enthusiasts made the ritual visit to the famous Restaurant des Hunaudieres, to find that this bastion of French cuisine, right alongside the fastest Part of the Le Mans circuit, had a new sign over the door: Shanghai les 24-Heures. The Orientals had arrived, and by Sunday evening they'd conquered. Mercedes were the pace-makers, running in...

World Sportscar Championship: Spa 480kms

Half a crown Half a litre of fuel, or the lack of it, was all that prevented Jean-Louis Schlesser from leaving Spa as the World Champion sportscar driver. Perhaps due to a minor mishap in the Sauber Mercedes pit, the Parisian set off for the last part of the race with the tank not quite filled, and this led to the team's first retirement of the 1989 season. Bad luck for Schlesser, but the best...

Jaguar's Finest Day

The one nightmare shared by Jaguar's board members was the possibility of defeat at Le Mans. Last year the three entries were prepared beautifully, but lasted only 16 hours effectively, and even with five improved versions this time no-one could confidently predict success. If any Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-9LM was going to win, it was going to have to beat the Porsche 962C of Derek Bell, Hans Stuck and...
