Forever growing bubbles

It has often been said that the BTCC bubble would have to burst sooner or later. But that won't be happening in 1996... The newly crowned British Touring Car Champion has had his holiday – a fortnight in Australia that included finishing a Holden Commodore-mounted sixth in the 'Great Race' at Bathurst! As you read this, he will be in South Africa contesting a Kyalami invitational race for Opel....

British Grand Prix Preview -- BTCC -- Vic Lee Motorsport

Going for Broke The Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone finishes with a round of the British Touring Car Championship, and it will inevitably see another battle royale between the Vauxhall Cavaliers, the BMWs and possibly the Toyota Carinas. And although the works-backed Prodrive team can never be discounted, it seems likely that the Bavarian banner will be flown by the Vic Lee Motorsport cars of...

World Sportscar Championship: Donington 480kms

Champion's performance To capture the 1989 World Sports-Prototype Championship, the Mercedes team had to pass a Spitfire 120 times at Donington on September 3. There was a peculiar irony in the situation, even though the warplane was only a plastic replica, and no-one felt like alluding to the anniversary of the outbreak of war until Jochen Mass broke the ice, in celebration: "It's a good job we'...

no headline

The inaugural running of the Asia-Pacific touring car series was brought to a close with yet another win for Joachim Winkelhock. The German had been crowned the champion even before he'd landed in Wellington, New Zealand, due to four victories from as many starts at the Fuji and Macau rounds. In the first race `Smokin Jo' headed the field away from pole in his Schnitzer-prepared BMW 318i, with...

British Touring Car Championship

Variety show The opening shots of the 1989 national saloon racing championship have been fired with the same weapons as last year, but more of this year's gunslingers seem to have the ammunition required to beat Andy Rouse in Class A. Which, as Mark Hughes reports, makes the title ever more likely to be won in one of the lower categories. Aside from when Steve Soper and the Eggenberger team took...

Confidence Restored

It was like a dream come true for the entire Silk Cut Jaguar team as the two XJR-11s swept to victory at Silverstone on May 20th. It was 19 months since the last success, at Fuji in October 1988, and the first with the new turbocharged cars that were so troublesome in their first year. Martin Brundle and Alain Ferte took the flag a lap ahead of Jan Lammers and Andy Wallace, and so maintained...

Events of the Month

Silverstone Classic With 1100 entries for 24 races, there is no doubting the scale of the Silverstone Classic. But this is an event that extends beyond simply a race meeting, with displays, live music, parades and more. A record crowd suggests that the promoters have got the mix right, but by any measure it is a vast event. Fifty years on from his victory at Silverstone during his dominant 1963...

Le Mans 24hrs: preview

Equipes et pilotes Only a provisional list of Le Mans entries, without any confirmed drivers, was available at the time of going to press, and some of the race numbers had yet to be allocated. Traditionally this is a time for wishful thinking for some teams (though these dreams have to be backed up by a hefty non-returnable entry fee), but Mike Cotton and Ian Briggs speculate as to which machines...

Weathering the storm

Life may have looked a tad chaotic in the BTCC of late, but there are some things the critics don't take on board It s not often that a driver gets to start from pole position five times in one day! On the two occasions that the British Touring Car Championship has visited Brands Hatch this year the heavens have opened and chaos has ensued. When wet this track becomes more slippery than most,...

At the hop

The BMWs of Joachim Winkelhock and Steve Soper would squat down and catapult off the line as the lights flashed green. They would breeze past their front-wheel drive rivals, who would be consumed by wheelspin or, worse still, too much grip. Thus, weight transfer under acceleration was a vital factor in this year's hugely popular Auto Trader British Touring Car Championship; it mattered not where...
