Hindsight

Passion for motor sport technology, editing Racecar Engineering is surely the dream gig. I never ceased to be amazed by the access the job brought. Whether it was the chance to spend time with Gordon Murray or Adrian Newey, the opportunity to work with the likes of Peter Wright and Paul van Valkenburgh, or the friendships with writers Allan Staniforth and Carroll Smith, it was all a dream ticket. Even the engineers who work within the sport are unlikely to see behind quite so many locked doors...

Recollections By Graham

Much to my amazement, this is the 19th issue of Racecar Engineering for which I have been responsible. Even so, I am very aware of being the new kid on the block. It is impossible to have accumulated the fund of anecdotes and stories from which Que tit in and Tony can draw, given their time served with the publication, but there are a couple of events that stand out for me in the last 18 months. One such was my first visit to the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando, The initial...

Above like many of the great racecar designers, Broadley started his career behind the wheel, seen here in 1957 In one of his early 750 Motor Club excursions Right Broadley (middle right) discussing the latest in pit lane fashions In 1961 the drivers had to be able to see behind through a rear view mirror. However, the air ducts to the carburettors made it impossible to see-through the steeply raked rear window. Tony Southgate, who was working for Broadley at the time recalled, 'We had made...

Reminiscent of the Ford GT40s in 1966, Audi R8s took first, second and third on their debut at Le Mans in ZOOO what happens while you are quietly trying to get on with your life. Well, in ray case, not so quietly. One day I got a call from ray old pal 'Q' aka Qua ntm Spurring asking for my opinion. Knowing I had started run the advertisement and circulation departments on Cars and Car Conversions, Q wanted to know whether I thought launching Racecar Engineering would be a viable business...

Fng neering brand appeared for the first time, not on the front of a magazine at all but on the title verso of a book, Bamsey's Ferrari 312 amp 512 Sports Racing Cars, The Porsche Hunters. It was very much a history book, but focussed on the technology of the cars. Bamsey was using his books, published by Haynes, to develop the magazine concept. But Bamsey was not completely decided on the name, having toyed with the correct English version of Racing Car engineering. 'That just didn't sound...

The Diesel Revolution

By 2002, though, the Audi Sport engineers had their sights set on the next project - the R10 TDI, a diesel-engined successor to the R8. 'We'd been involved with discussions on the rules since the very beginning. We sat down with Daniel Poissenot and Daniel Perdrix from the ACO in January 2002 in Ingolstadt and, over a beer in the evening, talked about racing in the future and the Idea came out that we should build a diesel. That's where It started,' explained Audi's head of engine technology,...
