European Grand Prix 2007 preview & TV times

The Nurburgring plays host to the only round of the championship in Germany this year. The absence of Michael Schumacher is largely responsible but, depending who gets the second Spyker seat, there could conceivably be five home drivers on the grid. But the battle for wins is likely to be between the same four drivers […]

Not the German Grand Prix

It’s not been officially announced as far as I’m aware, but this weekend’s round is not the German Grand Prix. Although it’s the only F1 race in Germany this year it won’t be called the German Grand Prix because the owners of the Hockenheimring also own the legal rights to the name.

Buy Ferrari stuff

Ferrari are auctioning a selection of authentic components from their Grand Prix cars. And no, it’s not stuff they found at Mike Coughlan’s house. Currently top of the bidding at ??????700.09 (that’s ???474.40 / $963.88) is a gear selection barrel from a 1998 Ferrari F300. Also on offer is the bevel gear crown from Michael […]

2007 drivers’ half-term report – part one

Nine races out of 17 completed – it’s time to rate how the drivers are doing. I’ll start off with the bottom half of the field today – don’t miss the top ten tomorrow. And if you don’t agree, well, that’s what the comments box is for! Last year’s list certainly generated some debate…

Debate: Bring back which track?

The European Grand Prix is at the Nurburgring this weekend. Sadly not the classic, fearsome Nurburgring Nordschleife – surely top of any F1 fan’s list of tracks they’d like to see return to the F1 calendar. It got me thinking at which old tracks should be put back on the calendar – ignoring the cost […]

BTCC Donington 1: Shedden wins in the wet

Rain-lashed Donington Park had the kind of weather we’re more used to seeing at Knockhill. So it was fitting that Dunfermline native Gordon Shedden triumphed in terrible weather in the first race. Behind him were two drivers with extraordinary tales to tell. Adam Jones finished second in a three year old Seat and Matt Neal […]

IRL Nashville: Two in a row for Dixon

Scott Dixon won his second consecutive race of 2007 – and once again it was championship leader Dario Franchitti who followed him across the line. The rain-delayed race suffered a brief interruption due to further rain but it was a largely incident-free event.

British F3 Brands Hatch 2: Narrow win for Hohenthal

Sebastian Hohenthal took a close win in the second race at Brands Hatch, chased home by Atte Mustonen and Marko Asmer. The podium finishers were covered by one second at the line. Both Asmer and Mustonen made efforts to pass Hohenthal but the Swede kept his cool. Michael Devaney scored the best result of the […]
