Marcus Pye's Diary

Opposites attract our columnist this month, from a Can-Am monster to a dainty, and obscure, Rhodesian GP winner Goodwood: Incongruous it most definitely looked against the elegant backdrop of Goodwood House, but that is precisely why the 1982 March Can-Am dinosaur was the car of last month's press day for me — and editor Simmons! It's not that I don't appreciate the intricate engineering of a...

Sebring 12 Hours – Florida

March 27th The organisers of the annual American long-distance classic made themselves rather unpopular with certain parts of Europe, by allowing unlimited capacity sports cars into the race that is normally for Prototype GT cars and homologated GT cars. However, this stand against the F.I.A paid off, for it produced an all-American win by Jim Hall and Hap Sharp in a Chevrolet-powered Chaparral...

An easy rider born to drive

Gary Hocking called a premature halt to his meteoric bike career in 1962. He felt Formula One was a safer option... Paul Fearnley recalls a talent that shone brightly, but much too briefly It was a remarkable opening lap of a remarkable circuit. Rhodesia's Gary Hocking had been drawn at six, his MV Agusta team-mate Mike Hailwood at three and his good friend, Honda's Aussie charger Tom Phillis,...

Porsche's hottest numbers

In 60 years the Stuttgart firm has produced some glorious cars. Picking the 10 best models would be tricky enough, but the 10 best individual chassis? Time to turn to a true Porsche expert… By Michael Cotton There was a time when I did not care for Porsches at all. There, heresy confessed! My school exercise books were covered in drawings of Ferrari and Maserati Grand Prix cars, beautiful front-...

Tony Maggs

South Africa’s forgotten Grand Prix aceGreg Mills South Africa isn’t blessed with a huge history of international motor sport success, but for a short while in the early ’60s it had a young hero in Tony Maggs.

Fantasy Overture

Rebuffed by the authorities, orphaned and winner only by default at Le Mans, Ferrari's 250 LM had a sticky start. Laurence Meredith recalls boyhood dreams of Maranello's misnamed missile. Most folks, if pressed, can remember one childhood Christmas that was better than all the others, and as I am no exception I fear that it is now time to make a painful confession. The plain truth of the matter...

The Italian, the Count and a swift exit from Le Mans...

One of the lesser known – and in my view rather underrated – international racing drivers of the early 1960s was the Italian Carlo Mario Abate. Driving most notably Ferraris owned and entered by the youthful Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata’s Scuderia Serenissima organisation, Abate quite regularly gave a good account of himself. Fifty years ago this season he won the over-2½-litre Gran Turismo...
