Formula Three review

Walker's month It is most unusual in the hard-fought category of Formula Three racing for one man to dominate the scene completely, but the 29-year-old Australian Gold Leaf-Team Lotus driver David Walker has, as we go to press, won the last four major races in a row. He has moved within one point of Bev Bond at the top of the Championship for the Motor Sport Trophy, and Colin Chapman has been so...

Lola T70

Even if you struggle to master it on track, Eric Broadley’s classic ’60s sports-racer will win you over with its looks. Prepare to fall in love… By Richard Heseltine Point of view is the crux. It’s quite simple really; the Lola T70 is the most beautiful sports-racing car ever made. Period. Anyone who thinks otherwise is, of course, quite wrong. Save perhaps the Chevron B16, nothing comes close to...

1975 British Grand Prix race report - Chaotic

  The British GP, for what it was worth, took place at Silverstone on Saturday, July 19th, in very unsettled weather conditions and had to be abandoned after 56 of the 67 laps had been run, not so much because of the torrential rain, but because there were so few of the competitors left on the track, the majority being tangled up in the catch-fences that now cover the run-off areas. Wilson...

Home Runs

From Fangio to Schumacher, some of the world's finest racers have given their all at the British Grand Prix. Simon Taylor looks back at Silverstone's greatest races and previews the 1999 event. As you'll be tired of hearing, the British Grand Prix is meant to be moving to Brands Hatch in 2002. In itself; this is nothing new: of the 52 championship rounds that have taken place on British soil, 14...

Racing round-up

Gran Premio de la Republica Argentina, January 24th. After the unfortunate Ferrari/Matra accident in the 1,000-kilometre race at Buenos Aires the Italian team withdrew completely from the Formula One race and the French team entered only one car, so that there were only ten cars on the entry list; the organisers invited three miscellaneous F5000 entries and two American Formula A entries to...

The Formula One Situation

Apart from one mild fluttering the situation in Formula One racing regarding teams, drivers and cars, was surprisingly stable when the 1975 season began in Buenos Aires on January 12th. A full three months had elapsed since the last Grand Prix race in 1974, which was at Watkins Glen on October 6th, and during that time things have been very quiet from the point of view of drivers changing teams,...

1000 KMs of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, January 9th. A respite of almost six months in the sports car championship programme gave all the leading teams some time to prepare for the 1972 season, which began in South America early in January. The latest rules have of course outlawed the 5-litre Porsches and Ferraris, and in theory at least bring the 3-litre prototypes closer together in performance by introducing minimum...

The 30th Monaco GP

A wet race Monte Carlo, May 14th With the race at Monaco taking place only two weekends after the Spanish Grand Prix there was not much time for any startling new changes to take place, so that the scene when practice started at Monaco on Thursday afternoon was very similar to that which we saw at Jarama. Those teams that had returned en bloc to their factories were back again, renewed and fresh...

1973 British Grand Prix race report - A momentous occasion

  There may be a lot of things wrong with the Silverstone airfield circuit, but one thing is definite, it is not a "Mickey-Mouse" circuit. Flat it may be, wide it may be, and fast it most certainly is, but at the lap speeds of today, it produces almost knife-edge situations and calls for a finesse in driving and a skill to go with bravery that sorts out the top Grand Prix drivers. If you are...

Running Order

Running order Sir, Thanks for a marvellous July issue, particularly the stunning Le Mans colour photos. The parting shot of the 1973 Monaco GP brought back fond memories, although I'd like to point out a slight error. The car following Hulme's Yardley-M23 and Amon's Martini-Tecno up the hill to Casino Square is not Pace's Surtees but Wilson Fittipaldi's Brabham-Ford BT42. Following further down...
