Lean on me

The British Touring Car Championship's rough and tumble season continues. The thorny question of driving standards has risen again. Where does one draw the line? The cognoscenti are beginning to grumble. So are some of the drivers. "If it carries on like this something is going to have to be done about it," explained one of BTCC's newest recruits after the support race at the British Grand Prix....

Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager. And as friends from their teens, their careers often wove togetherBy Simon Taylor I'm in a village pub, listening to two old friends reminisce about spending their entire working lives in and around motor sport. One raced his own marque of Formula 1 car, then spent 35 years as a top team manager in endurance...

Karl learns his lesson

Karl Wendlinger completed his initial apprenticeship to Mercedes' WS-PC team by sharing the laurels at Spa with tutor Jochen Mass. At the age of 21, the Austrian is the youngest winner of a World Championship race since Ricardo Rodriguez drove a Ferrari to victory in the Targa Florio in 1962, and Wendlinger certainly showed a fine blend of skill and maturity as he dealt with a distant challenge...

Track Test --- TVR

Exhilarating! I confess to being mystified by TVR products, falling totally out of touch when our Mr Gordon "GC" Cruickshank relinquished his V8 and I was no longer subject to his enthusiastic propaganda on the subject. It was therefore a total surprise when the Blackpool factory PR, James Pillar, rang and asked the writer to take over the number 1 "celebrity" car in the 1991 TVR Tuscan...

Diary

The Month in Motor Sport Sep 14: John Gray sets a new course record at Brighton Speed Trials in his Pilbeam MP58. Despite losing a sidepod during a run, his time was 14.48sec over the half-mile -- a terminal speed of 181mph. Other new class records fall to Anthony Mayman (ERA): 18.91sec, 139mph; Phil Cook (Jedi Gamma): 20.44sec, 120mph; Clive Harris (Ralt RT4): 17.65sec, 148mph. Fastest Lady:...

The worst car I ever drove - French Farce

Tim Harvey – Renault 19 Renault’s F1 domination boded well for its new touring car – but, as Tim Harvey tells Mark Hughes, there’s many a slip… Though merely a thirty-something, Tim Harvey is the longest-serving member of the British Touring Car Championship. Since making his debut in the series 11 years ago in a Rover SD1 Vitesse, he's seen it transform itself from the status of glorified club...

Pimms, soufflés and custard pies

Nissan's top brass was unimpressed. Its guests had been fed and watered at not inconsiderable expense, before gathering at the front of its hospitality marquee on the outside of Copse to watch the touring car race that followed the British Grand Prix. Seconds later, having picked gravel out of their Pimms and strawberry soufflé, they witnessed the dust settle to reveal three very bent Primeras...

Precision Timing

With a chilling precision, Mercedes took control of the Suzuka 480 Kms race in Japan and repeated last year's 1-2 result. Jean-Louis Schlesser and Mauro Baldi won the race, just as they did last year in the same C9 model, with Jochen Mass and his young Austrian protégé Karl Wendlinger 42 seconds behind. Geoff Lees started from pole position again, in the Tom's Toyota, so a casual observer might...

Luigi Chinetti

Luigi Chinetti, who passed away recently, knew Enzo Ferrari way back in the '30s, but though the former scored the first of the latter's nine victories at Le Mans with the 166 Mille Miglia Ferrari in 1949 (and owned the car that took the last of them), and though he sold countless of II Commendatore's products as North American distributor, theirs was a relationship based on ambivalence. As a...

Sensible season

I was ready. I wasn't going to be caught out. I'd heard all about it, the backhanders, the back biting more moves than the Kasparov/Short epic, they said. I bought a brand new notebook, sharpened my pencil, and waited by the 'phone for the inevitable cacophony of calls. . . Nothing. And lots of it. And I was so looking forward to silly season; it was not something I had come across in three years...
