MSM is an excellent magazine IMHO .
Agree totally, been an avid reader since the mid 60s, learnt about Mr Wheatcrofts acquisition of the historic Donington circuit for the princely sum of £100 K in 71 I remember driving from Devon, where I lived at the time, to Donington a few years later 83 I think and guess what, the gates were open and I drove my company, maroon Granada, with free petrol around the circuit unchallenged a few times, accompanied by my wife and baby daughter. A perfect day eh, those were the days.!!
Oh, and spent the night at the Royal Hotel, Ashby de la Zouch. Now closed. !!!!
Brexit, don't mention it, ffs.
My Mum and Dad bought me a 1 years subscription a couple of years ago . I have kept it going
Can't claim to be an avid reader since the mid 60's .
I was born in 65
Born 65, I was 19, bloody good year though, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Lotus cars, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Supremes. and I rode a Triumph Tiger 100 to London and back home to Devon with no crash helmet.
Feels like yesterday.
Your Mum and Dad knew what they were doing eh.
Not sure how many of you watch The Grand Tour (I know, I know, I judge myself so you don't need to), but in episode 5 of the new series they have done a brilliant brilliant biopic and tribute to Jim Clark.
I didn't know a great deal about him, but wow. That '65 season. My goodness. And the fact he managed 8 grand slams.
Really worth a watch.
when you read about Jim Clark you start to understand why some of the older generation consider him, not the greatest F1 driver of alll time, but the greatest racing driver of all time. He drove on the edge like it was a Sunday drive, any car, any surface.
Don't know if it's a repeat or not but on BBC2 tonight at 9pm Williams: Formula 1 in the blood is on.
It was made in 2017, but I have not seen it before
Could Frank Dernie like Mansell any less!!?? Coming across really bitter!
I'd like to read more. Anyone know of a decent biography, documentary, anything else?
He is coming across as a bit of an arse but a very determined one. Dodgy brm chassis numbers, fraudulently selling cars back to drivers, second hand f1 tyres.... but give him his due for his determination. I didn't realise how much Patrick Head held things together and the massive improvements he gave the car.
Will have to watch that .
Has anyone been listening to the series beyond the grid on you tube ? Very interesting I think .
Though some are better than others .
Yes, its impossible to classify who is the BEST driver of all time, I have four F1 drivers who I hold in the highest esteem but find it impossible to devise a formula that would enable the greatest to be highlighted. My four are Jim Clarke, Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna, Lewis Hamilton.
Sauber name not disappeared completely. They will have a team in F2, F3, and F4
Yes, in F1 they will be known as Alfa Romeo Racing with Kimi Raikkonen as the Primary driver having swapped places with Leclerc, interesting to see how that move develops. Goodluck to both.
The Alfa Romeo has "Sauber Engineering" written on the side. They haven't changed the name of the company, just the entry.
New 2019 Drivers , Stelvio and Guilia, stunning eh.
Internet in overdrive this morning with reports that Ted Kravitz has been sacked by Sky Sports.
Anyone know anything?
Well it looks like Karun Chandhok is working for Sky and previously he did a very similar job to Ted on C4. So I think Ted is out!
But Ted is the best one!!
