In the hot seat -- Gerry Marshall

Britain's club racing hero Gerry Marshall on 623 wins, beating Roger Clark at his own game and why the Goodwood marshals bowed down to Baby Bertha Was Big Bertha really as evil to drive as people make out? -- Mike Trotter, Aberdeen Well, I didn't know any better at the time — I was delighted with it. The biggest problem was its weight — it was beautifully built, having started out as a show car...

Where is saloon car racing going?

Where is saloon car racing going? "BUT, but, I thought saloons were rather dull production things like Broadspeed Triumph Dolomite Sprints, or Toyota Celicas or Hillman Avengers ?" Doubtless you recognised the quotation from D.S.J., who was commenting on the inventively engineered super saloons at Silverstone for the supporting race to the farcical Grand Prix. Unfortunately these products of...

Simon Taylor's Notebook

Tony Southgate has gone from the 750 Motor Club to Formula One glory and Le Mans, and then back again The 750 Motor Club has always served as a nursery for budding designers. The first Lotus to race was Colin Chapman's Austin 7-based MkIII, which dominated the 750 Formula in 1951, and led to some of the most innovative and successful F1 cars of all time. Eric Broadley's first Lola was a homebuilt...

Roofs of the world

These iconic saloon cars went to tin-top war in the late 1980s. But which is better: Sierra RS500 or BMW M3? Ian Flux decides... The old Abbey on the old Silverstone had always been easy flat. Until now. Approaching at more than 150mph, perched in a repmobile teetering on skinny tyres, this left kink suddenly required all my concentration. And a lift. And a dab. Nobody had told me that touring...

Putting it on the line

When ‘old muckers’ Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell teamed up for the Daytona 24 Hours it was a chance to prove they still have what it takes – and perhaps humble a few of their younger rivals By Damien Smith There's no point saying they had nothing to prove. They knew as soon as they signed up that we'd all be asking the question because, hell, they wanted to know themselves. Could they still...

1994 French Grand Prix race report - two into three won't go

  Damon Hill and prodigal Nigel Mansell dominated qualifying for Williams, but come the race smart tactics made it business as usual for Michael Schumacher and that Benetton.   If ever a 1994 race must have made Max Mosley rub his hands with glee and say 'I told you refuelling would create some great race strategies,' then the French GP at Magny-Cours was it. Of the front runners, nobody spent...

European Touring Car Championship, round one

Brands Hatch, March 18th. The opening round of the European Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch on March 19th proved one thing at least. Even though the series had diminished in stature since the demise of the works Jaguars, a Group a race could still produce a very exciting finish, even when it was in effect only a two-car race.

Sixth sense

After watching Alfa Romeo rack up five straight wins, Paul Radisich finally broke Italy's winning streak at Silverstone . . . Well, now I know what it feels like to lead an Alfa Romeo! We've had problems with the Mondeo this year. We were struggling to get temperature into the tyres quickly which was making it difficult to qualify, because to get the best out of the tyres is to push them hard...

The Death of Innocence

It is common practice not to award number 13 in the start list for any form of motorsport. On the Tour of Corsica, there has been no number four since 1986. Twice running, the driver of car number four - a Lancia on both occasions, as it happened had been killed. Rallying went about its business after the death of poor Attilio Bettega, but the demise of Henri Toivonen and his codriver, Sergio...
