Memories of Bev Bond

I was sad to read the Bev Bond obituary in last month’s issue, but it brought back memories of his career in karting during the Sixties – something that provided the impetus for his subsequent success in 1000cc F3. Bev was a top-notch driver in the Class IV gearbox category and moved up to F3 at a similar time to a number of others, like Chris Lambert, Roger Keele, Barrie Maskell and Tony Dean,...

Can-Am Races

Rounds Eight and Nine The eighth and final eastern round of the 11-race Canadian-American Challenge Cup series was held at the Michigan International Speedway circuit about 60 miles west of Detroit. Opened only last year, MIS is a multi-purpose facility which incorporates both a banked oval track (for USAC and NASCAR races) and a road circuit. The road circuit is three miles in length and is...

Road America

With only a week between the fifth and sixth rounds (and less than that to overhaul the machinery), a number of cars appeared at the Road America circuit in Wisconsin in far from perfect mechanical condition. The Shadow did not appear at all, although Elford did obtain a ride in an older but unsorted Lola T70. Another English driver making his second Can-Am appearance of the year was David Hobbs...

Sports Round-up

Formula 5000 One International formula which seems to thrive on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as in Australia and New Zealand) is the Formula 5000 single-seater category, a class of racing which took quite a long time to get off the ground but now commands a loyal following. In Europe the F5000 Championship is backed by Rothmans and, over the past month or so, Bob Evans and Peter Gethin...

20th B.R.D.C. International Trophy, Silverstone

For the 20th B.R.D.C. International Daily Express Trophy race at Silverstone, the Club amassed a small but fairly representative field of Formula One cars. Heading the entry were Hulme and McLaren in the two impeccably-prepared McLaren M7A-Cosworth V8s, which finished first and third in the Race of Champions, and Ferrari sent over two cars, one a new, slightly sleeker-chassised V12 with the...

Good Friday, Oulton Park

At Oulton Park on Good Friday, the B.R.S.C.C.'s North-Western Centre organised a most successful National Open meeting with a 37-lap combined Group 4 and 6 race and a Formula Three event to be run in two 10-lap heats and a 27-lap final. A strong entry for the sports and prototype race, the Guards Spring Cup, was headed by Sid Taylor's Lola-Chevrolet T70 Mk. Ill for Redman, Hawkins' Ford GT40, and...

A Croft original

Sir, We were sad to read about the passing of Jim Crawford. He might have been forgotten elsewhere, but certainly not with long-time Croft regulars. For us, what was most memorable was that meeting in June 1981 when Jim left his greatest mark with the faithful at the North Yorkshire circuit It was to be the last year of the track in its original incarnation, and we were miserably ticking off...

Tony Dean

Can-Am was in a McLaren rut it needed a new Challenger. Chapparal blew into town with its 'sucker' car but, as Paul Fearnley explains, was upstaged by Yorkshire common sense. They called it the 'Bruce and Denny show' with good reason. The New Zealanders' orange McLarens were untouchable. They had won 19 Can-Am races in a row. They hadn't missed out on a pole since Riverside in 1967. But they...

The Colonel's little trooper

Ferrari’s Dino-badged ‘F2 sports car’ fired Col Ronnie Hoare’s enthusiasm, but this battle was lost before it began Nissan has one. Toyota has one. Mercedes has one. Sub-brands, we call them now, where the manufacturer can create a fresh image for one section of its produce. Ferrari too had one, long before Infiniti, Lexus and Maybach were created (or revived in the latter case). Only Ferrari’s...

Daytona Six-Hours

Ferrari foremost again Daytona, Florida, February 6th. For a number of years a rather unnecessarily long 24-hour event, this year following the recent FIA ruling, the organisers of the Daytona event decided to shorten their race to a more compact six hours and consequently it did at least prove exciting in parts. This event remained as the second round of the World Manufacturers' Sports Car...
