I remember years ago, when the calendar was dominated by European circuits with only 4/5 races in South America, Australia and Japan bookending the season, ITV did a feature on the Benetton (?) team travelling by […]
I recall from one of the recent biographies about Ecclestone, there was a story about how a smaller team sold one-off rights to sponsor the car to a local brewery for one of the USGPs of the mid-1980’s. He was […]

I stayed at the camping near Les Combs in 2009 and on the Saturday we went in the car down to Stavelot. Nice little town, fairly quiet with a few nice restaurants. I was actually surprised that there wasn’t more […]
