The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

Mugello, April 13th

Mugello, April 13th Fastest in practice at the serpentine, mountain girt circuit of Mugello near Florenm was a 2-litre Gp 6 Osella-BMW PA8 shared by Lela Lombardi and Vittorio Brambilla. Beaten off the line by Alborcto's Montecarlo Turbo, Brambilla fought back and powered to the head of the 26-car field before the end of lap two Once in front, he sped away into a long lead, having 70 seconds in...

Formula Two Review

That Jacques Laffite would win the French-dominated 1975 European Formula 2 championship was never really in doubt. The 31-year-old former racing mechanic had won five of the six races held when we reviewed the situation in July and, even though his successes suffered something of a surprise slump in the next few races, Laffite had wrapped up the title by the time the teams reached Silverstone on...

Monza 4-hour

ETC first round to BMW The first round of the much-publicised European Touring Car Championship battle between the Ford Germany and BMW manufacturers' teams fell in favour of BMW on the 5.75 kilometer Grand Prix circuit, without last year's chicanes, at Monza, near Milan. However, it was the private BMW 3.0 CSL entry of Bavarian tuning firm Alpina which took the honours, driven by Niki Lauda and...

The Spanish Grand Prix-Catastrophic

Barcelona, April 27th WE SHOULD have seen the writing on the wall when the transporters carrying the Formula One circus crossed the frontier into Spain with little or no trouble, unlike previous years when there had been long delays and muddles over paperwork. "Best trip we've ever had" said the UOP-Shadow crew. One man who did have a bit of bother was the driver of the Texaco "entertainment"...

Endurance Racing muddles

Attempting to sort out the sports car racing scene has grown increasingly complex over the years. In the 1950s we had cars that were recognisable as relatives to their roadgoing counterparts "progressing" into pure racing machinery that still had a relevance to the road, such as the Jaguars. Even in the 1960s the big manufacturers were interested enough to spend millions on the production of a...

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Lauda confirms Ferrari's mastery San Paulo, January 25th The 1976 Grand Prix season started on a difficult note in January in the same way as the 1975 season ended last October. Having agreed that their race would take place, the Automovil Club Argentina abruptly announced the cancellation of the Argentine Grand Prix, due to take place in Buenos Aires' Parc Almirante Brown on January 11th, thus...

Notes on the cars at Jarama

From memory I cannot recall seeing so many Formula One cars in the paddock for a Grand Prix as were seen at Jarama for the Spanish race, though whether quantity took the place of quality is not for me to say. Every race seems to produce a new make of "kit-car" as well as brand new cars from the established teams. Spain saw the debut of the Trojan-Tauranac, a one-off car designed by Ron Tauranac...

Italian Grand Prix

Stewart's Championship Monza, Italy, September 9th The Italian Grand Prix produced the first Team Lotus one-two result for some six years, but the race around Monza's famous, if "chicane" bedevilled track, will be remembered as one of Stewart's classic races. An early pit stop with a flat tyre on his Tyrrell cost him just over a minute and dropped him to 19th place. The Scot refused to accept...

The Forgotten Streets

David Phillips examines the prosperity of Trois-Rivieres, a classic street circuit which is unlikely to be foremost in European minds Trois-Rivieres, Quebec may lack the glamour of Monaco, the mountainous backdrop of Pau or the exotic atmosphere of Macau, but the annual Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres certainly ranks among the world's great street races. It's got lust about everything one could ask...
