Automobilsport n°17 – juillet/août/septembre 2018

In our interview with Bill Warner, founder and organiser of the Amelia Island Concours, he summed up what made motorsport special in the 1960s and 1970s: ‘On the one hand, it was a very dangerous time. Too many deaths and cars that were almost criminal in their construction. On the other hand, there was diversity of design with exciting technologies such as V12s, flat 12s, V8s, turbines, monocoques, tube frames, early composites and limited aerodynamics.

In our interview with Bill Warner, founder and organiser of the Amelia Island Concours, he summed up what made motorsport special in the 1960s and 1970s: ‘On the one hand, it was a very dangerous time. Too many deaths and cars that were almost criminal in their construction. On the other hand, there was diversity of design with exciting technologies such as V12s, flat 12s, V8s, turbines, monocoques, tube frames, early composites and limited aerodynamics. Moreover, the cars had style and a purity of design.’ Warner likes to celebrate that same diversity with his concours, paying tribute to motorsport and its heroes. And he makes good on his promise: no other concours event offers such a varied field of cars in such a relaxed environment. The heroes featured in our latest issue of AUTOMOBILSPORT include Lodovico Scarfiotti and Ivan Capelli. Scarfiotti was tragically killed 50 years ago at the Roßfeld hillclimb. We look back on his life and career from Page 68 onwards. As for Capelli, he shot to prominence after his Formula 3 success at Monaco in 1984. He then drove for Tyrrell at the European Grand Prix at Brands Hatch in 1985, before heading back to Formula 3000 ahead of a return to F1 with Leyton House in 1987. Our author Ian Phillips, who back then was team manager at Leyton House, describes those first two Formula 1 seasons. For a small team, Leyton House was quite successful – particularly with a certain Adrian Newey responsible for the design of the ‘Miami blue’ cars. It’s an exciting insider story. You don’t have to be an insider to notice a slight price increase for this issue. Unfortunately, we had little choice, with rising paper and shipping costs having given us some headaches over the last few months. We’re committed to putting quality first, in every respect – paper, print, photos, articles, delivery and service – and that comes at a cost.   1 EDITORIAL 6 NEWS & EVENTS 10 TECHNOLOGY NEWS 12 INTERNATIONAL EVENTS PREVIEW 12 OBITUARY JOHN MILES 18 HAVE YOU SEEN THESE? 19 BOOKS 20 LETTERS / AUTOMOBILSPORT INSIDE 24 HEADLINES FROM 30 YEARS AGO - Compiled by Rainer Braun, presented by Bilstein 28 THE CLASSIC TRENTO-BONDONE HILLCLIMB - The Eckhard Schimpf column 34 DBR1 - Aston Martin’s first thoroughbred racing car 40 ONE FOCUS: SPORTS CARS 44 THE ACCIDENTAL WORLD CHAMPIONS 56 TECHNICAL DETAILS OF THE DBR1 — MODEL 1958 58 HIGH-FLYER - Fiat 131 Abarth Rally 68 LODOVICO SCARFIOTTI - The long journey to recognition 82 MIAMI BLUE UNDERDOGS - Leyton House F1 in 1987 and 1988 — Part 1 94 IVAN CAPELLI 106 ‘WE SHOULD CELEBRATE THE CAREERS OF OUR RACING HEROES’ - Interview with Bill Warner 114 TOP CLASS - 27th Tour Auto 120 INTERNATIONAL EVENTS 124 BACK ON TRACK - Hartmann Formel Junior 128 AUCTIONS AND MARKET 132 CLASSIFIEDS 142 PREVIEW AUTOMOBILSPORT #17 142 IMPRINT 144 SUBSCRIPTION FORM
