We celebrate two fine British successes with a rare green cover this week. Lewis Hamilton’s sixth win of 2016 moved him clear of Nico Rosberg in the Formula 1 title fight, helped by the fact his team-mate was unable to race his way out of trouble following a bad start, as EDD STRAW explains.
Kris Meeke was sublime on his way to winning Rally Finland, a flat-out, high-speed event that neither Colin McRae nor Richard Burns managed to win during their illustrious careers.
There was more British success at Spa, as Alexander Sims was part of the winning BMW squad in the 24 Hours. GARY WATKINS reports from Belgium, while we also bring extensive coverage of the Silverstone Classic, one of the highlights of the historic racing calendar.
