One giant leap

The space race wasn’t limited to matters extra-terrestrial. Some of the technology was having a significant impact on race tracks around the worldWriter Paul Fearnley Jackie Stewart, his luxuriant hair and sideburns bang on-trend, won a thrilling 1969 British Grand Prix in a car devised by rocket scientists.  The next day, buzz-cut Neil Armstrong – keeper of a Chevy Corvette leased from 1960 Indy...

The Monaco Grand Prix

Gambler's luck  Monte Carlo, May 15th The planning of the 1983 Grand Prix season is not working out too well. It started off all right in Brazil, with everyone surprisingly fit and ready to race, then the scene moved to Long Beach where there was an all-pervading atmosphere of it being the last Formula One race in the Californian sea-port town. The European scene began entirely on the wrong foot...

Sir, Ref. M.G.D.'s article "Ken Tyrrell", 1955 was not the last year in which the works D-type Jaguars appeared at Le Mans. Three cars competed in 1956, Hawthorn/Bueb finishing sixth after early fuel injection bothers and Frere and Fairman both retiring, after a second lap accident, with the other two works cars. When Mr. Tyrrell mentions his test drive with Aston Martin he names one of those...

Tyrrell 019

What an amazing car this turned out to be and one that was so much better than I'd expected. I'd been rightly told before I'd even sat in it that the tyres were old and had been hot and cold dozens of times, that they came from an F3000 car and had no heaters. But I went out, and within hall a lap, I was thinking "hang on, this thing's actually got some grip." Then I drove it harder, realised it...

How the home fires were extinguished

The white BT34, its distinctive YPF logo prominent on the flat nose wing separating its two 'lobster claw' water radiators, rolled to a halt on pole position in front of the packed grandstands, beneath an unyielding sun. Nothing like this had been seen since the days of Juan Manuel Fangio and Froilan Gonzalez two decades before. "Lo-le, Lo-le!" The fans chanted Reutemann's popular nickname....

Buenos Aires, April 12th From the start of practice for the Argentine Grand Prix, held at Buenos Aires' Municipal Autodrome within the spacious Parc Alrnirante Brown, Nelson Piquet was without question the man to beat.

Continental Notes

The Formula One Constructors Under most circumstances I am in favour of dictators, providing their ideas coincide with mine, and particularly in motor racing I like dictators. Ettore Bugatti never stood any nonsense from anyone, nor did Enzo Ferrari or Tony Vandervell, neither does Colin Chapman. When things become on friendly and democratic confusion and indecision usually take over and for this...

British Grand Prix Preview -- Goodyear

DSJ has celebrated many an anniversary, the latest has been Goodyear's 250th win in Grand Prix racing..... Keeping a statistical score is a full time job for some enthusiasts, whether it be the number of pole positions gained by Ayrton Senna, the number of race wins by Alain Prost or the number of times a team has failed to finish, and the excitement usually begins at the figure 50, it being a...

Two too many

The six-wheeled Tyrrell P34 was not only one of F1's most radical innovations, it still sharply divides opinion. Was it a technical leap or a blind alley? Andrew Frankel decides "I actually had the idea back in 1968 but for a completely different application." The words belong to Derek Gardner, designer of the Tyrrell Project 34, one of the most memorable and innovative Formula One cars of all...

The 4th Canadian Grand Prix

Ferrari fast and strong Mont Tremblant—St. Jovite, Sept. 20th.
