Events of the month

BTCC Brands Hatch The crowd at Brands Hatch experienced something unusual during the BTCC finale: it wasn’t raining. Well, not for the first few hours, anyway. Not since 2011 had there been a dry championship decider, which has added to the excitement – or stress, depending on which side of the paddock fence you sit. But the track was dry as the grid lined up for race one, championship leader...

TGP, Misano

June 18 Joaquin Folch overcame a failing clutch on his Brabham BT49D to claim his second win of the season in round three of the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship at Misano. Despite the best efforts of Williams racers Peter Sowerby and Richard Eyre, Folch (left) finished 13sec up as searing temperatures marked TGP’s first race at the Italian track. Sowerby backed off when he saw smoke...

Oldtimer Grand Prix, Nürburgring

Incredibly, this was the 42nd annual running of the Nürburgring Oldtimer Grand Prix… so many of the cars entered hadn’t even been born when the event started. In the UK, historic racing leans towards the earlier days of motor sport, when the British were building cars and winning races across the globe. At this event, the Germans had a more ‘recent past’ emphasis, so British visitors were able to...

Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far. Tragically, an awful shadow was cast when Denis Welch lost his life after his Lotus 18 overturned in the HGPCA Pre-61 race on Sunday. Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

FIA Masters Historic F1, Barcelona

As Formula 1 fans discussed the merits of their sport’s new sound and quality, the FIA Masters Historic F1 Championship blasted into life with a 31-car grid in Barcelona – and it produced some tremendous racing. Steve Hartley (Arrows A4) won both parts of the Spanish double-header, his first success coming after leader Michael Lyons (Hesketh 308E) and pole qualifier Simon Fish (Ensign N180) both...

Masters Historic Festival, Brands Hatch

Excellent grids, fine racing and a fitting tribute to Sir Jack Brabham made a winning combination for the annual Masters Historic Festival on the awesome Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. As the event marked the 50th anniversary of the Kent venue’s first British Grand Prix, two Historic Grand Prix Car Association races had added prominence. To cap the Brabham celebration, John Fairley took his...

Ready, Fredy, gone!

Spaniard Jaquin Folch scored an emotional home victory when the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Car season opened at Jarama. The local man's Williams FW08 beat off the FW07 of Fredy Kumschick to record his first win in the historic Formula One series. Soaking wet conditions at Spa two weeks later made little difference to Kumschick, who dominated Round Two while Folch was away on business. After the...
