HISTORICS Six-wheeler races at last

Six-wheeler races at last Thirty-five years after it was created by the March Grand Prix team, the six-wheeled March 2-4-0 had its debut race at the Silverstone Classic. After two tests in 1976 the project was abandoned, but the car has been rebuilt over two years by Tony Smith, who unearthed the four wheel-drive system for the back end. His son Jeremy raced the car (below). The March completed...

The Old Man and the Kiwi

By Doug Nye In 1987 I found myself seated on one side of an imposing desk in a spacious, but modestly furnished, office at Maranello. Seated at one end of the desk was the genial and ever-helpful Dr Franco Gozzi. And on the other side of it, looking at me rather dismissively like a great Test batsman regarding a novice schoolboy bowler sat the living legend himself, Enzo Ferrari. I was...

Events of the Month

WEC: Spa 6 Hours Eau Rouge is easier now than it used to be thanks to Tarmac run-offs replacing gravel, and flat kerbs giving drivers a wider exit strategy as they pop over the top of Raidillon. But the sanitisation of motor racing's favourite bit of track hasn't made it any less spectacular as the prime place to witness aces on the limit. And when it comes to the World Endurance Championship,...

VSCC Mallory Park

The VSCC was graced with a fabulous summer's day for its annual visit to Mallory Park, attracting what was probably the largest crowd since the Williams Trophy meeting has found its home in Leicestershire. All events produced healthy grids, assisted by the expedient of combining some categories, which resulted in some interesting variety, and a number of cars not regularly seen in VSCC racing....

German premier

The 23rd AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nurburgring retained its place as the premier historic racing event in Continental Europe, with a successful four-day meeting on August 10-13, for which the organisers claimed an attendance of 61,000.

We are, I hope with some justification, quite proud that, for some reason or other, drivers seem happy not simply to talk to us but also to be frank about experiences which cannot be in the least bit comfortable to recall. You will have read Alain Prost on the subject of Ayrton Senna and, next month, Tony Brooks will explain why victory in what he regards as his greatest race was achieved at an...

The rub of the Green

Picture the scene: on the southern slope of the Sussex Downs a Ferrari GTO races through a right-hander shortly after the start, the corner lined with straw bales, while the crowd cranes forward from behind tapes and paling fencing, basking beneath a clear, blue sky. Shortly afterwards, it is followed by another GTO, this time in the livery of Maranello Concessionaires, which wails off into the...
