Questions, questions

”Is crash. Is frightening. Is fast. Is funny." Giampiero Simoni's grasp of English may be marginal but no one bettered the young Alfa Romeo driver's summation of the British Touring Car Championship. It may not be motorsport for the purist, but I defy anyone to dismiss it as being dull 40,000 spectators at OuIton Park and nine participating manufacturers can't all be wrong. True, the series has...

After the thorny question of 'what car should I buy?', the oldest motoring debate is that concerning the merits of front- and rear-wheel drive. In purist racing formulae there is no question about the winning pedigree of the latter, especially when run in alliance with an engine mounted amidships.
