    Historic Racing News: August 2022

    Historic Racing News: August 2022

    The idea is this: You can have any racing car you like, you can drive it on the road or track or simply look at it, BUT you can never sell it, and if you get bored with it you have to give it back. That’s the conundrum facing our ‘Corridors of Power’ panellists Paul Jurd, Joe Bradley and Peter Snowdon. Also on this edition, Martin Warner, boss of the Shere Hill Climb, Alan Strachan, who is currently building three new versions of the Andy Rouse Sierra Cosworth he built with Andy back in the day, and Nick Padmore tells us what it’s like when your car catches fire at the Le Mans Classic at 170mph

    Historic Racing News: July 2022

    Goodwood House is the backdrop for a relaxing conversation between Paul Tarsey, Paul Jurd and Peter Snowdon. They talk about the Festival of Speed (of course) and other things happening in the world of historic motor sport before PJ and Snowy go their separate ways on projects you will hear about over the next few months. Paul Tarsey talks to Andy Dee Crown who run the Historic Sports Car Club, better known as the HSCC. Andy explains how the club has a wide range of different series, catering to owners of period sports cars, through a very successful Formula Two and Atlantic series to the ubiquitous Formula Fords! ‘Corridors of Power’ features choices from PJ and Snowy plus Joe Bradley and Jim Roller. Seeking some technical input, the panellists are tasked with choosing the greatest racing of all time. There are some surprising choices! Let us know your thoughts on the choices, or anything else on the Historic Racing News Facebook page or @histracingnews #hrnrs

    Historic Racing News: Le Mans Classic preview 2022

    With the Le Mans 24 hours done and dusted, the team turns its attention to the upcoming Le Mans Classic. Paul Jurd shares some little known facts about the first-ever race held at Le Mans, and no, it wasn’t the inaugural 24 Hours in 1923, it was the French Grand Prix held on a circuit for 12 laps in 1906 ……. but each lap was 64 miles long! Jim Roller takes a look at the way the current 24 hour circuit has evolved over the years, starting with the northernmost point, the Pontlieue Hairpin, which intrepid motorsport archaeologists can still go and discover.
