Nigel Roebuck’s Reflections 

 

50 years of the Porsche 911 

The most famous and familiar sports car of them all hits the half-century this year – and it remains as relevant and desirable as ever.  

 

911 pioneer  

In 1967 Vic Elford convinced Porsche to allow him to start rallying, racing – and even rallycrossing – a 911.  

 

911 events in 2013  

The big anniversary will be celebrated at a long list of events this summer. Here, we round up what should be the highlights. 

 

Racing Lives… David Purley  

Second in our new series of ‘cartoons’. This month, we look at the former marine who achieved underdog status in F1 and survived one of the sport’s biggest accidents, only to be killed in a light plane crash 

 

GP2: the next generation  

We introduce the four British drivers who are the most likely to make the step up to Formula 1 in the near future: James Calado, Sam Bird, Adrian Quaife-Hobbs and Jolyon Palmer.  

 

Audi’s sports car highlights  

As Audi heads to Le Mans in its quest to win the great race for a 12th time, we meet five of their greatest drivers to ask them for their highlights since the German manufacturer entered the sport in 1999.  

 

Ferrari test  

We drive a fabulous 1966 275GTB/C with incredible race history.  

 

GP Travel Guide: Singapore GP  

First of our at-a-glance guides to travelling to F1 races. Singapore is one of the most spectacular races of the year  

 

Lunch with… Tiff Needell  

This racing enthusiast got his big break when he won a Formula Ford in a magazine competition. Through the 1970s he worked his way up the single-seater ladder – and just made it to F1.  

 

Bernd Rosemeyer  

Profile of one of the great pre-war racing drivers. The German raced the great Auto Unions against the other heroes of the age, Tazio Nuvolari, Rudi Caracciola and Achille Varzi.  

 

Giancarlo Minardi 

Interview with the former F1 team boss who ran his little Italian team in Grands Prix through the 1980s and ’90s – always on the tightest of budgets.
