a classic contest of experience versus youth

Muth running of the Indianapolis 500. They are Juan Pablo Montoya, Helio Castroneves, Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, Ryan Hunter-Reay has been made of the fact that there are nine former winners in the 33 cars qualified for this weekend’s 105-Reay, Alexander Rossi, Takuma Sato, Will Power and Simon Pagenaud, who between them have 13 victories at the iconic 2.5-mile superspeedway. That’s the most winners to start the race since 10 took the green in the 1992 edition, so yes, it’s a big deal. And it looked like an even bigger deal after the first day of practice last week, when seven of those nine managed to occupy the top 11 slots. After the excitement of three new winners in the first five races of the 2021 IndyCar season, was the world’s…

treble top for allen and riley in superkarts

MALLORY PARK BRSCC 22 MAY Although the entry was low, there was no shortage of action for the opening rounds of the Motorsport UK British Superkart Championships at Mallory Park. Ross Allen (Division 1) and Tom Riley (F125 Open) were unbeaten in their respective classes, with Allen almost taking three outright Allen battled with Carl Kinsey in the opener and the lead changed on several occasions. Kinsey led until five laps from the flag when he slowed with a misfiring engine and that allowed Allen back through. Kirk Cattermole gained the upper hand over Lee Plain in the F250 National class with a decisive move at the hairpin, while Riley had an untroubled run to the flag in F125 Open and Mark Gellatly was top in F450 National. Allen then survived an excursion across the…

griffiths’ brace as f2 battle rages behind

SILVERSTONE HSCC 22-23 MAY Two magnificent drives by Miles Griffiths earned a memorable Historic Formula 2 double as the Historic Sports Car Club’s International Trophy retrospective centred on the BRDC’s European championship rounds of the 1970s. Unfeasibly charismatic cars and shrill two-litre engine notes brought Silverstone’s Grand Prix circuit alive, but it was the field’s depth and intensity of battling throughout that enthralled spectators, back for the first time in more than a year. Griffiths, Classic F3 ace Andy Smith, Historic Formula Fordster Cameron Jackson and Thundersports standout Calum Lockie – whose reactions in a savagely powerful 8.8-litre March in dry and wet conditions defied marshals’ comprehension – were among the competitors at the top of their game. Such mastery was reflected across the host club’s portfolio of grids. The quality of cars, including…

influx of mgfs helps to boost cockshoot cup grid numbers

MG CAR CLUB Nine MGFs helped boost the Cockshoot Cup to a 25-car grid at Oulton Park last weekend, its largest entry for several years, with more expected at the next round. Mark Wright debuted his ex-Ian Gibbons MGF Cup car, and ran production-spec machinery in Class F for novices Max Pittock-Holdsworth and ex-motocrosser Tom Church, while debutant Gareth Jones fielded a TF LE500. Newcomer Joe McClure is earmarked for the Gibbons car’s next outing, when it will be refitted with a VHPD powerplant after running a standard engine last weekend. Wright will return in the ex-Vince Martin Diamond Morris machine he used last year, now also restored to VHPD power, with Dave Coyne set to pedal Wright’s ex-Mark Ticehurst JHR example. They will join David Coulthard’s former Nigel Reuben car as a quartet…
