First-class second class

We asked versatile Frenchman Nicolas Minassian to try his hand at Group C2 – sports car racing’s finishing school when such as Porsche and Jaguar ruled the roost – and assess the formula’s enduring appeal Writer Simon Arron, photographer Howard Simmons "In my eyes it’s the best race in the world, bar none,” Nicolas Minassian says. “I’ve done Le Mans 15 times now and feel the same sense of...

Sydney's opera horse Problems with a 4wd Ferguson trigger memories of bygone engineering complexity Late on the Saturday night at Goodwood’s ‘72’ meeting, I was walking through the paddock when I happened upon a perplexed little group huddled over the fabulous four-wheel-drive Ferguson P99. Owner/driver Stuart Rolt explained that its Climax engine had subsided into silence on his first practice...

Jaguar's Revenge

Although nobody liked to admit it, Jaguar's defeat at Brno in Czechoslovakia was taken very seriously at Kidlington and in Coventry. There, for the first time in 1988, the British cars had been beaten fair and square by Sauber Mercedes, with no excuses, and fears were raised that the Swiss-German team might raise the level of competition, just as the Electramotive Nissan team has done to Jaguar's...

A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...

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...

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'...

Lunch with... Adrian Reynard

Innovator, improviser, impecunious... The founder of a famous British racing institution has been all three, but right now he's flying high once again By Simon Taylor Motor racing is dangerous: it's a truism that doesn't need repeating. And motor racing can be dangerous commercially, too. On the balance sheet as well as on the track, risk can reap huge rewards but can also result in huge crashes...

Silverstone 1,000 Kms

Works Porsche lucky Two factors have conspired to reduce the apparent advantage of the factory Rothmans-Porsches this year and both were in play at Silverstone on May 13th when Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass were a shade lucky to win the World Endurance Championship 1,000 Kilometre race. The works cars are no longer appreciably lighter than the customer Porsche 956s, thanks to the new minimum weight...
