Formula Two review

Tragedy and disorganisation at Rouen The annual Formula Two race at the impressive Rouen Les Essarts road circuit has always been a favourite. The track itself is fast and extremely challenging, the surroundings are extremely pleasant and the meeting has always had a relaxed air. This year it was rather different and a shadow was placed over the whole proceedings by the death in practice of the...

Notes on the cars in Austria

There was quite a lot of detail development work taking place during the Austrian Grand Prix practice periods, and on the day prior to official practice beginning. The 1972 Tyrrell, number 005, had been undergoing some stress testing in England and the chassis had been found wanting, so in order to relieve the situation temporarily the inboard-mounted front brakes had been discarded and...

Past, present, future

Lola is about to produce a new run of the beautiful T70. So we thought it would be nice to whet Ian Flux's appetite with an ex-Bonnier car. Flux is right of course. It really is beautiful. In your mind's eye, this is how a sports-prototype should look, all beefy and curvaceous: none of that geometric, square-cut nonsense. A car that was conceived with the aid of nothing more exotic than a vivid...

1975 Dutch Grand Prix report

An Englishman wins Zandvoort, June 22nd Everyone went to the seaside circuit in Holland resigned to the fact that the Dutch Grand Prix would be another Ferrari walk-over. Memories of the way Lauda and Regazzoni had dominated the 1974 race still lingered uncomfortably in the minds of the Cosworth V8 users, even though the massacre was avenged later in the season. The 1975 Ferraris, with their ever...

"The first 7000 miles were surprisingly simple..."

Forza Argentina

After designing and building a 3-litre V8 racing engine in less than a year, Oreste Berta dreamed of his self-built F1 car starting a grand prix. Dauntless isn’t the word for him… By Tony Watson At Buenos Aires in 1975, the Copersucar of Wilson Fittipaldi became the first Formula One car designed and built in South America to start a grand prix. Indeed, his marque remains that continent’s only GP...

The 34th German Grand Prix

Return to Sanity With the 1972 season passing its midway point Grand Prix races are happening with great rapidity, being held every alternate weekend, so that there is little time for the teams to do other than repair the ravages of the previous race before the next one is due. A very full entry arrived in the Nurburgring paddock for the German Grand Prix and they were all on time and ready to go...

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Notes on the cars in Argentina

OF THE twenty cars in the spacious garages of Buenos Aires Autodrome, five were brand new but none of them were to designs not previously seen in public. But there were some pretty significant modifications in some camps, particularly in the Elf Team Tyrrell corner. They had brought along the two Mk. 2 versions, 005 for Stewart and 006 for Cevert, and both cars were fitted with inboard front...

Rally review

The cockpit of his E-Type Jaguar, the garden of a Routier between Sarthe and Milan, a restaurant table on a cross-Channel ferry and the transit lounge at Orly are all places where one can imagine D.S.J. having sat down to write his monthly "European Letter". We have all been compelled many times to begin writing in odd places, but the one in which I now find myself beginning these words must take...
