Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

Lunch with... Derek Bell

He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

Nurburgring 300

March 31st/ April 1st Yet another season of racing at the Nürburgring started on March 31st with the opening round of both the Interserie, and the European GT Championship as well as a Formula Three race. The Interserie was the main attraction, this European version of Can-Am racing entering its third year, hopefully with better grids and more exciting racing in 1973. The entry was limited...

1969 - Down to the Wyer

It should have been Porsche’s day but when Stuttgart foundered, John Wyer’s team was ready. Adam Cooper recalls what happened next The 1969 24 hours is remembered as the closest finish in the history of Le Mans and is usually mentioned in despatches whenever the greatest motor races of all time are considered. But the race has earned a place in the history books for other reasons. It marked the...

One that got away

Howden Ganley: 1975 Nürburgring 1000Km Despite owning a brace of year-old Gulf GR7 Mirages, Gelo Racing boss Georg Loos concentrated on his GT Porsches. But the Nürburgring 1000Km was different. His compatriot Willi Kauhsen, who was running year-old Alfa T33TT12s, entered three cars for the first time; Loos responded with both GR7s. His drivers were John Watson/Tom Pryce and Tim Schenken/Howden...

So far, yet so near

It was the closest finish ever at Le Mans but there still has to be a loser. The man who missed out tells his story to Adam Cooper The 1969 Le Mans 24 hours is acknowledged as one of the greatest motor races of all time, and winners Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver have retold their stories before. But what about the man who came second that year? Hans Herrmann went on to win in 1970, but his place...

Seppi's bright idea

When Jo Siffert convinced Porsche to take on Can-Am, this day-glo beast was the result. Cue a new lease of life for the great 917By Gordon Cruickshank It can be annoying when somebody muscles in on your patch. Suppose you were, say, a large wealthy country and had set up a race series between you and your neighbour which was going well and providing terrific racing, even if it was a pair of Kiwis...

(No) Lunch with... Keke Rosberg

The 1982 Word Champion puts his success down to hard work rather than talent, but there's been plenty of that in evidence too By Simon Taylor According to Keke Rosberg, getting to the top in Formula 1 requires one of two things: “A lot of talent, or a lot of hard work. Nelson Piquet, for example, never wanted to work very hard, but he did have a great talent. Ayrton Senna was special, because for...

It wasn't a bad race this year's Monaco bash — even though I can't recall a single for-position overtaking manoeuvre. What was distinctly impressive was how the top seven finishers were pretty much mistake-free. The fantastic on-board footage emphasised just how boggling the world's most famous circuit is, how its barriers beckon you at every turn. You must be inch perfect — and Montoya,...

F1 Kauhsen set for return in TGP race

Willi Kauhsen has bought back one of his Formula One chassis and plans to return it to the track at this year's Thoroughbred Grand Prix finale at Estoril in October. The car is being rebuilt by Mecauto in Belgium. Designed by Klaus Kapitza, chassis number one (of five) was one of the most striking shapes in F1 when it was first tested at Paul Ricard at the end of 1978. However, the 'signature'...
