…chance doesn't exist; there's always a cause and a reason for everything – Elahi

“There were plenty of things you could do back then…”

1976 Canadian Grand Prix.Alastair Caldwell (right, with headset, talking to James Hunt at Mosport, in 1976) is our guest this week on The Racer’s Edge – which means that at last we can sit him down and talk to him in outrageous detail about those early days at McLaren, about Bruce winning his first race in a car bearing his own name – and about the tricks they used to play back in 1976, when James Hunt fought Niki Lauda all the way to the Drivers’ World Championship.  We also catch up with Charlie Kimball, the son of the former McLaren and Ferrari Design Engineer, Gordon Kimball.  Last Sunday, Charlie won his first IndyCar race (with Chip Ganassi Racing) Images: LAT Photographic; TRE Production: Knockout TV in association with F1 Racing

    WHAT FANATASTIC TIME A.C. HAD AND STILL SEEMS TO BE HAVING. ALASTER IS A TRUE RACOUNTER OF THE FIRST ORDER.
    GFREAT PROGRAMME. PETER HAVE A GREAT WEEK OFF/ CHEERS

  3. One of the best Episodes, thanks Peter and Alastair. It’s a good way to share experiences of other F1 “era” , new fans must know it. Very special surprise for me at the end , fantastic and emotional!

  4. A truly fascinating interview. Mr Caldwells honesty and openess was striking. No axe to grind, just open. The first time I have heard it suggested that Bandini was sent out to knock Hill off. Controversial! Has anyone ever put this to Surtees?

    I noticed during the interview you asked Alastair many times if he was exaggerating. Is he infamous for that or something? Were all his stories factual? They were very entertaining.

  6. It was just by way of conversation…he’s very factual.
