Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey! By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Kyalami 1,000 Kms

Bell's race, Ickx's title For the first time since 1974 the Sports Car Club of South Africa was allocated a championship endurance race, the Kyalami 1,000 Kms event on December 10th being the seventh and final round of the 1983 World Endurance Championship. Run a full two months after the previous round, at Fuji, the South African event attracted a top-class entry, 25 cars from Europe including...

Formula One -- Brazilian Grand Prix

At last! After the dramatic inflation of recent months, and the manner in which most of them drive on what pass for roads in Sao Paulo, the local populace is used to scrapes and close escapes. Yet 70,000 of them held their breath throughout the closing laps of the Brazilian GP as their idol, Ayrton Senna, performed perhaps the greatest escape of them all. On seven previous occasions the McLaren...

Notes on the cars at Zandvoort

Williams: The official announcement in Austria that Frank Williams had concluded a deal with the Honda Motor Company of Tokyo to use their engines for 1984, with an experimental probe into the realms of turbo-charged power for the remainder of this season, was welcomed by everyone. It was just over a year ago that Frank Williams disappeared on the Saturday afternoon of the Dutch Grand Prix and...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Mansell Is Finally Crowned

Senna wins dramatic race, but second is enough to secure Mansell's first World Championship The first 38 laps of the Hungarian GP did not follow the script that Nigel Mansell would have wished to have signed off, but the inkling of the role that Riccardo Patrese had written in for himself had already become evident on Saturday night. After dominating each practice session, the Italian was in good...

Fears Of A Clown

One of the old guard who should move over for youth, or the finest unfulfilled talent of his generation? Mark Skewis takes a look at Johnny Herbert's F1 career. Of the ridiculously small percentage of racing drivers who make it to Formula One, precious few ever win a Grand Prix: fewer still get to achieve that feat in front of their home crowd. Which was why, when Johnny Herbert crossed the...

Brands Hatch 1,000 Kms

Fine Canon team win The 1984 World Endurance Championship events are, generally, spaced out a month apart as the teams wished, but with a fine sense of timing F1SA allowed the BRSCC organised, British Aerospace-sponsored Brands Hatch 1,000 Kms race to be held on July 29th, just a week before the Mosport 1,000 Kms. A few teams, notably John Fitzpatrick's Skoal Porsches, decided to do both but for...

Japanese measure up the Porsches

Signs that Group C racing will get stronger, and that the challenge will come from the Orient, were seen in Japan when the Fuji 1,000 Kilometre World Endurance Championship race was run early in October. While Honda involve themselves in Formula 1, both Nissan and Toyota were represented by teams with turbocharged 2.1-litre production-based engines which acquitted themselves well, the Nissan-...

World Endurance Championship: Silverstone 1,000 Kms

— a cliff-hanger Maybe Jochen Mass made the most prophetic remark after winning at Vallelunga, when he commented that the cars would get better, and the drivers would get used to driving for economy. The opening round had almost been an embarrassment as the leading cars slowed, and then slowed some more to reach the finish line on their allocation of 510 litres, 15% less than last year's 600...
