Lunch with... Keith Greene & Chris Craft

One was a popular saloon and sports car racer, the other a highly respected team manager.

Hockenheim F2

April 8th Following Jean-Pierre Jarier's crushing victory in the opening round of the European Formula Two Championship at Mallory Park in March, a month elapsed before round two at Hockenheim in Germany.

Canadian Grand Prix

Stewart back on top Mosport, Canada, September 24th. Jackie Stewart and Elf-Team Tyrrell will remember 1972 as a year of mixed fortunes. Stewart's season started off well enough with a win in Argentina but after that things started to go wrong. There was the ulcer that put him out of the Belgian Grand Prix and, prior to that, he had unaccountably spun at the Spanish GP which he now says was...

Formula Two review

A fortnight after the second European Trophy round had been held at Thruxton 17 drivers made their way down to the historic French town of Pau in the Pyrenean foothills to compete on the demanding circuit round the streets.

Dave Morgan: "My best day at a circuit"

"My first ever circuit race was at Mallory, and I went on to be quite successful there in my Mini Cooper S. It was always a very good circuit for me. For the F2 race I had Ed Reeves's Formula Atlantic Brabham. I'd raced it once, at the end of 1971, at Oulton Park. Then Ed said. 'How do you fancy doing F2?' He got David Wood to do an 1860cc engine far more reliable than the 2-litres but less...

Lunch with... Jo Ramirez

The personable Mexican looks back over 40 years of Formula 1 glories and struggles, friendships and tragedies By Simon Taylor The problem is, lunch isn’t long enough.
