Pantomime horse... Ferrari stumbled ahead of the 2014 British Grand Prix, but theatrical mishaps have long been part of the team’s fabric As Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen failed to survive first qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, it became apparent that Ferrari had screwed up. It wasn’t alone: Williams got into the same muddle about which tyres to mount during a rain-...

Lunch With... Steve Soper

This serial race winner and straight talker remained a factory driver for almost 20 years. No shortage of anecdotes here, then...Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell Most of the best drivers who earn their living in sports or touring cars have at least cut their teeth in the single-seater formulae. Steve Soper is different. This man racked up a fine career over more than 20 years,...

Common Heritage

The Esso British Car Championship is like all other forms of motor sport, continually changing. This year will almost certainly be the last in which the enormously powerful and spectactular, turbocharged Group A cars such as the Ford Sierra Cosworth will be allowed to race in unrestricted form. Cars such as my Labbatt's Sierra RS500 now develop around 560 bhp, giving a top speed of over 170 mph,...

Pro-Celebrity Media Challenge

A prize worth winning Congratulations to James Evans of Bristol, who collected our 'Win a Day at Silverstone' prize (Motor Sport, September). The vast majority of a healthy number of respondents got all four questions right. For the record, John Watson's team-mate in 1981 was Andrea de Cesaris; Miki Biasion will drive for Ford in 1992; Graham Hill shared his 1972 Le Mans victory with Henri...

Consistent, persistent, insistent

Some journalists – no names, no pack drill – seem to think that the British Touring Car Championship is as good as over. It's true that Alfa Romeo stole all the early headlines and that Gabriele Tarquini put together a string of victories at the start of the season, but I'm only 30 points – which can be recouped in the course of a double-header race meeting behind him. This championship is so...

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...

Touring cars review: British and European championships

Battles Won, Wars Lost Despite the FISA axe hanging menacingly over its international future, Group A touring car racing has put on a good show this year both at home and abroad. Though the domination of their respective classes by Ford, BMW and Toyota remained unbroken, and individual race results all too predictable, championships could still be contested right down to the wire . . . The man...

Civil service

It seems that BMW can do little wrong in the public eye at present. True, the 7-series is suffering from a worldwide aversion to buying European luxury cars in the Lexus's wake, and Mercedes-Benz's 190E 2.5-16 is giving the old-style M3 a fair old pasting in Germany's mildly depleted touring car series, but the overall future for an independent BMW looks brighter than ever. BMW's US factory...
