Hewland is a British engineering company, founded in 1957 by Mike Hewland, which specialises in racing-car gearboxes. Hewland employ 130 people at their Maidenhead facility and have diversified into a variety of markets being successful in electric vehicle transmission supply. Hewland are supplying into Formula 1, Formula E, DTM, LMP, RallyCross, Prototype and GT Sportscar. Mike Hewland ran a small engineering business at Maidenhead in the UK with the speciality in gear cutting. In 1959, Bob Gibson-Jarvie, the Chief Mechanic of UDT Laystall racing team running Cooper F2 cars, sought help from Hewland as gearbox troubles were experienced; the result of this request came out as six successful gearboxes being designed and built in 1959, Hewland was in the gearbox business. The first transaxle product, the Hewland Mk. I of 1960, was a minor modification of the Volkswagen Beetle 4 speed transaxle used upside-down with custom made differential housing side plates for the midship engine Lola Mk. III built for the new Formula Junior rules in 1961.
Hewland Mk. II was a similar 4 speed transaxle with more modifications for Coventry Climax engined Elva Mk. VI 1.1 litre sports racer in 1961. Hewland Mk. III of 1962 became the first product for the public, which used the magnesium alloy case of the Beetle transaxle to house 5 pairs of bespoke straight-cut constant mesh spur gears with dog rings operated by custom-made brass shift forks. Gear selector shaft was located in the nose housing, unmodified as in the Beetle set up, facing rear-ward at the tail end of the box in the front-side-back position on a midship engine racing cars; the elimination of synchromesh parts provided the space for an additional pair of gears for the 5th speed. This Mk. III became popular for small displacement formula cars and racing sports cars, was the basis on which all the products were built. Mk. IV had the tail casing made by Hewland, with the selector rod located in the right side lower position, facing forward; this made the shifter linkage design easier on the part of chassis manufacturers.
Together with its high torque version Mk. V, Mk. IV became a big seller. Mk. VI of 1965 was an improved version of Mk. IV, which established Hewland as the dominant volume production transaxle manufacturer in the small displacement midship-engine racing car market, helped by the de facto standard usage in the newly born Formula Ford series. Although Formula Ford engines displaced 1.6-litre, the capacity was not a problem as the 1.5-litre rating was for higher power racing engines as opposed to the single carburetor, production cam and compression ratio regulation of the formula. The advantages of the series were: Dog-ring gear selection made it quick shifting; the structure that enabled changing of gear ratios on the 2nd through 5th speeds possible without removing the transaxle from the vehicle, or detaching it from the engine. Upside-down usage enabled the dry sump racing engines to be mounted low on the chassis; the 3rd, 4th and the 5th gears had the same thickness and drive/driven axis distance, thus were interchangeable.
Magnesium alloy Volkswagen case made it strong and light weight. Hewland was claimed to be the first company that made racing car gearboxes, however, a transaxle housed in an aluminium alloy case for racing purpose in midship-engine configuration had been designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Horch in 1933 as a part of Auto Union Type A. Valerio Colotti had been producing gearboxes for racing purposes before 1959, his transaxle for midship-engine racing cars debuted on 10 May 1959 at Monaco Grand Prix on Behra-Porsche. Colotti 5 speed T.32 transaxle, which weighed less than 35 kg, was in use by Rob Walker in 1960. Lotus Engineering made a transaxle for front-engine Lotus 12 in 1957 designed by Richard Ansdale and Harry Mundy, this gearbox/differential unit was adopted to midship-engine use for Lotus 18 which debuted on 8 April 1960. Hewland dominated the racing scenes in the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, still is a leading company in racing transmissions with its focus shifted a bit toward custom engineering work for vehicle manufacturers.
In addition to the traditional manual transmission products covering all the racing and rallying classes, Hewland now offers a complete semi-automatic transmission components including shift actuators, throttle actuators, shift position sensors and steering wheel paddle systems. The following is the list of the smaller product range housed in Volkswagen case except for LD200. Transmission capacity is measured by the maximum output torque, the product of the input torque times overall reduction ratio. However, as the output torque is proportional to the input torque with typical gear and differential reduction ratios, as the input torque is proportional to the engine displacement, Hewland used to indicate the maximum allowable engine size, the maximum input torque measured in Lbs/ft. as the transaxle selection guide. The following is the list of larger product range up to 1981. After an approach from Richard Noble, Hewland was persuaded to design and build the AE75, a 75 bhp aero-engine for Noble ARV Super2, a 2-seater light aircraft.
This engine, an inverted three-cylinder water-cooled two-stroke unit with dual ignition and a 2.7:1 reduction gearbox, was developed from Hewland's existing two-cylinder microlight engine. The AE75 was light at 49 kg, thereby contributing to the overall lightness of the aircraft, so that the ARV Super2 weighed 40% less than its competitor, the Cessna 152. Hewland has been involved with various track day cars. Most
Marlboro is an American brand of cigarettes owned and manufactured by Philip Morris USA within the United States, by Philip Morris International outside the United States. Richmond, Virginia, is the location of the largest Marlboro cigarette manufacturing plant. Marlboro is the global best-selling cigarette brand since 1972. Philip Morris cigarette maker, opened a New York subsidiary in 1902 to sell many of its cigarette brands; the mark "Marlboro" was registered in the United States in 1908 although no cigarette was marketed under this name until 1923. In 1924, the brand was launched, they are first marketed as "America's luxury cigarette" and were sold in hotels and resorts. Around the 1930s, it was starting to be advertised as a women's cigarette, based on the slogan "Mild As May"; the name was taken from a street in London. However, as early as 1885, a brand called "Marlborough" was being marketed as a "ladies' favorite" by Philip Morris & Co. In the 1930s, advertising for the cigarette was based on how ladylike the filter cigarette was, in an attempt to appeal to the mass market.
To this end, the filter had a printed red band around it to hide lipstick stains, calling it "Beauty Tips to Keep the Paper from Your Lips". Shortly before World War II, the brand's sales stagnated at less than 1% of tobacco sales in the US and was withdrawn from the market. After the war, Lucky Strike, Chesterfield were the only common cigarettes. After scientists published a major study linking smoking to lung cancer in the 1950s, Philip Morris repositioned Marlboro as a men's cigarette in order to fit a market niche of men who were concerned about lung cancer. At the time, filtered cigarettes were considered safer than unfiltered cigarettes, but had been until that time only marketed to women. Men at the time indicated that while they would consider switching to a filtered cigarette, they were concerned about being seen smoking a cigarette marketed to women; the red and white package was designed by the designer Frank Gianninoto. The emblem is placed on top of the pack and has the popular Latin expression Veni, vici, authored by Julius Caesar.
The repositioning of Marlboro as a men's cigarette was handled by Chicago advertiser Leo Burnett. The proposed campaign was to present a lineup of manly figures: sea captains, war correspondents, construction workers, etc; the cowboy was to have been the first in this series. While Philip Morris was concerned about the campaign, they gave the green light. Marlboro's market share rose from less than one percent to the fourth best-selling brand; this convinced Philip Morris to drop the lineup of manly figures and stick with the cowboy known as the Marlboro Man. From 1963, the television advertisements used Elmer Bernstein's theme from The Magnificent Seven. In the late 1960s, Marlboro "Longhorn 100's" were introduced. Although colour-coded with gold, they were full flavor cigarettes, not lights. In 1972, Marlboro became the best-selling brand of tobacco in the world. In order to comply with a 2006 court ruling in United States v. Philip Morris USA, Inc. et al. Philip Morris is now prevented from using words such as "Lights", "Ultra-Lights", "Medium", "Mild", or any similar designation that yields a false impression that they are safer than regular full flavour cigarettes.
Thus Marlboro and other cigarette companies must use only color-coding instead. Philip Morris responded to the popularity of Pall Mall, the number three brand, by pushing Marlboro Special Blends, a lower-priced cigarette. In 2013, Philip Morris International introduced "Marlboro 2.0". The pack design was changed; the Marlboro 2.0 packs are available in Europe and some parts of Africa and Latin America, but not in the United States, Canada and New Zealand. In 2015, Philip Morris announced they would introduce a "Firm Filter" to their Marlboro Red, Silver Blue, Ice Blast and White Menthol variants. Philip Morris managing director for the United Kingdom and Ireland, Martin Inkster, said that the Firm Filter technique was added to "offer quality you can feel, it is a cleaner way to stub out your cigarette". In the 1920s, advertising for the cigarette was based on how ladylike the filter cigarette was, in an attempt to appeal to the mass market. To this end, the filter had a printed red band around it to hide lipstick stains, calling it "Beauty Tips to Keep the Paper from Your Lips".

Brian Herman Thomas Redman, is a retired British racing driver. He was successful in sportscar racing and the World Sportscar Championship, winning the 1970 Targa Florio with a Porsche 908 and the 12 Hours of Sebring twice, in 1975 with a BMW Coupé, in 1978 with a Porsche 935 and the Spa-Francorchamps 1000km race 4 times, he was for many years associated with the Chevron marque, founded by fellow-Lancastrian Derek Bennett. He is a regular at the Monterey Historic Automobile Races at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Redman drove for Shadow Racing Cars both in Formula One, he appeared in McLaren and Alfa Romeo cars. He participated in 15 World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 1 January 1968, he achieved one podium in the 1968 Spanish Grand Prix, finishing third in a Cooper-BRM behind Graham Hill in a Lotus-Ford and Denny Hulme in a McLaren-Ford. He had an accident at the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, crashing his Cooper-BRM at Malmedy corner, he scored a total of 8 championship points in his career, with two 5th places in 1972, at the Monaco Grand Prix and the German Grand Prix driving a Yardley McLaren.
He was offered various other Formula One drives, but did not enjoy the atmosphere of F1 in the 1970s, preferring sports car racing. He achieved spectacular success in this category of racing in 1969 and 1970 as a Porsche works driver; the conservative Redman decided to retire from his dangerous profession, getting a job as a Volkswagen car dealership manager in South Africa in 1971. But this only lasted for 4 months, he didn't have a drive. After being asked by Wyer to start the race, Redman crashed his and Siffert's Porsche 908/03 20 miles into the first lap and was injured. Thinking his career was finished, he found himself signing a one-race deal to drive for Scuderia Ferrari's sportscar team at the Kyalami 9 Hours race in South Africa that year, he and Clay Regazzoni won the race, he received a full-time offer from Ferrari for the 1972 season. He won a number of races and the Ferrari team won every race in the series that year except for Le Mans, an event they did not participate in, he raced for Ferrari in 1973, winning the Nürburgring 1000km race with Jacky Ickx.
Redman moved to the United States and won the SCCA/USAC Formula 5000 Championship three times in a row from 1974 to 1976 against considerable opposition, including Mario Andretti and Al Unser, driving a Jim Hall/Carl Haas entered Lola, in 1975 and the Jackie Oliver, Shadow Dodge and Alan Jones, March 76A. But in 1977 he had a serious accident in his Lola F5000 car at the Mont-Tremblant circuit near St. Jovite, he drove one of two Group 6 World Championship 936 Porsche 2.1 turbo at Le Mans and Silverstone in 1979. In his career he achieved more success in endurance racing, winning the 1981 IMSA GT championship, his last year of professional racing was at the age of 52, driving for the works Aston Martin team in the 1989 World Sports Prototype Championship. Redman now lives in Florida and is active in historic racing, he drives a Porsche 908/03 for the Collier Collection and appears at the Goodwood Festival of Speed every year. Road America hosts The HAWK with Brian Redman for vintage cars, one of the largest and most prestigious vintage racing events in the US Redman was inducted in the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 2002 in the sports cars category.
To date, he is the most recent inductee to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame from a country other than the US, having been inducted in 2011. "Porsche experience" interview of Brian Redman "Targa 66 club" started by Brian Redman
Frank Williams (Formula One)
Sir Francis Owen Garbett Williams is a British businessman, former racing car driver and mechanic. He is a team principal of the Williams Formula One racing team. Born in South Shields, County Durham, son of a serving RAF officer and a special education teacher, Williams was in part brought up by his maternal aunt and uncle in Jarrow when his parents' marriage broke down, he subsequently spent much of his childhood at a private, fee-paying boarding school, St Joseph's College, Dumfries, in Scotland. In the late 1950s a friend gave Williams a ride in his Jaguar XK150 and he was hooked on fast cars. After a brief career as a driver and mechanic, funded by his work as a travelling grocery salesman, Williams founded Frank Williams Racing Cars in 1966, he ran drivers including Piers Courage for several years in Formula Three. Williams purchased a Brabham Formula One chassis, which Courage drove throughout the 1969 Formula One season, twice finishing in second place. In 1970 Williams undertook a brief partnership with Alejandro de Tomaso.
After the death of Courage at the Dutch Grand Prix that year, Williams's relationship with de Tomaso ended. In 1971 he raced Henri Pescarolo with a chassis. 1972 saw the first F1 car built by the Williams works, the Politoys FX3 designed by Len Bailey, but Pescarolo crashed and destroyed it at its first race. Williams, short on cash, looked to Marlboro and Iso Rivolta, an Italian car company, for sponsorship. Though they pledged their support, they did not come through in time and in 1976 Williams took on a partner in Canadian oil magnate Walter Wolf. Though the team continued functioning, it no longer belonged to Williams and he left in 1977 along with one of his employees, engineer Patrick Head; the two acquired an empty carpet warehouse in Didcot, United Kingdom and announced the formation of Williams Grand Prix Engineering. This same team and partnership still compete in Formula One racing as ROKiT Williams Racing, they are based just outside the South Oxfordshire village of Grove near Wantage.
The team's first win came in 1979 when Clay Regazzoni drove the Cosworth-powered Williams FW07 to victory at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Their first Drivers' and Constructors' Championships both came in 1980, with Australian Alan Jones winning the Drivers' title. Between 1981 and 1997, the team won six more Drivers' Championships and eight more Constructors' Championships. On 2 March 2012, Williams announced he would be stepping down from the board of Williams F1 and would be replaced by his daughter Claire, although he would still remain with the team in the role of team principal. Williams has used a wheelchair since becoming tetraplegic after a car accident in France on 6 March 1986, he was driving with team sponsorship manager Peter Windsor in a rented Ford Sierra from the Paul Ricard Circuit to the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport when the incident happened. Williams had been at the circuit to watch the testing of the team's new F1 car, but as a keen long distance runner, he was returning to the airport following the trials because he wished to compete in a fun run in London the next day.
During the drive to the airport, Williams lost control of the rental car on a slight left hand kink in the road causing it to leave the highway. An 8 ft drop between the road and a field caused the car to roll onto the driver's side. Williams suffered a spinal fracture between the 4th and 5th vertebra after being pressed between his seat and the crushed roof. Windsor sustained only minor injuries. Frank Williams met Virginia Berry in 1967 and they married in 1974, they had two sons and Jaime and a daughter, Claire. Virginia Williams wrote an autobiographical book A Different Kind of Life that describes her experiences in the Formula One team's formative years as well as her husband's near-fatal accident in 1986, she was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and died on 7 March 2013 at the age of 66. Williams owns the Inholme Estate, Berkshire. In 1987, the Queen awarded Williams the title of CBE, he was knighted in 1999. He has been made a Chevalier of France's Legion d'honneur, this honour accorded for his work with Renault engines.
In 2008, Williams was awarded the Wheatcroft trophy. On 19 December 2010, he was awarded the Helen Rollason Award for "outstanding achievement in the face of adversity" at the BBC Sports Personality of The Year Awards. On 15 October 2012, the main road through the new Great Western Park development in Didcot was named "Sir Frank Williams Avenue" with Williams unveiling its name plate. In May 1994, following the death of Ayrton Senna in the FW16 at Imola, Williams was charged with manslaughter in accordance with Italian law, but he was acquitted after several years. Since Senna's death, all his F1 cars have carried a tribute to Senna featuring a small Senna "S" logo; every chassis since the FW17 had the logo on nearby. Rumour surfaced that it would be dropped for 2012 but was denied by Williams.

Williams Grand Prix Engineering
Williams Grand Prix Engineering Limited racing in Formula One as ROKiT Williams Racing, is a British Formula One motor racing team and constructor. It was founded by team owner Sir Frank Williams and automotive engineer Sir Patrick Head, it is still run by Williams; the team was formed in 1977 after Frank Williams's two earlier unsuccessful F1 operations: Frank Williams Racing Cars and Wolf–Williams Racing. All of Williams F1 chassis are called "FW" a number, the FW being the initials of team owner, Frank Williams; the team's first race was the 1977 Spanish Grand Prix, where the new team ran a March chassis for Patrick Nève. Williams started manufacturing its own cars the following year, Switzerland's Clay Regazzoni won Williams's first race at the 1979 British Grand Prix. At the 1997 British Grand Prix, Canadian Jacques Villeneuve scored the team's 100th race victory, making Williams one of only three teams in Formula One, alongside Ferrari and fellow British team McLaren, to win 100 races.
Williams won nine Constructors' Championships between 1980 and 1997. This stood as a record until Ferrari surpassed it in 2000. Drivers for Williams have included Australia's Alan Jones; each of these drivers, with the exception of Senna and Button, have captured one Drivers' title with the team. Of those who have won the championship with Williams, only Jones and Villeneuve defended their title while still with the team. Piquet moved to Lotus after winning the 1987 championship, Mansell moved to the American-based Indy Cars after winning the 1992 championship, Prost retired from racing after his 4th World Championship in 1993, while Hill moved to Arrows after winning in 1996. No driver who has won a drivers' title with Williams has managed to win a title again. Williams have worked with many engine manufacturers, most with Renault, winning five of their nine Constructors' titles with the French company. Along with Ferrari, McLaren and Renault, Williams is one of a group of five teams that won every Constructors' Championship between 1979 and 2008 and every Drivers' Championship from 1984 to 2008.
Williams F1 has business interests beyond Formula One racing. Based in Grove, Oxfordshire, UK, Williams has established Williams Advanced Engineering and Williams Hybrid Power which take technology developed for Formula One and adapt it for commercial applications. In April 2014, Williams Hybrid Power were sold to GKN. Williams Advanced Engineering had a technology centre in Qatar until it was closed in 2014. Frank Williams started the current Williams team in 1977 after his previous outfit, Frank Williams Racing Cars, failed to achieve the success he desired. Despite the promise of a new owner, Canadian millionaire Walter Wolf, the team's rebranding as Wolf–Williams Racing in 1976, the cars were not competitive. Williams left the rechristened Walter Wolf Racing and moved to Didcot to rebuild his team as "Williams Grand Prix Engineering". Frank recruited young engineer Patrick Head to work for the team, creating the "Williams–Head" partnership. Reuters reported on 20 November 2009 that Williams and Patrick Head had sold a minority stake in the team to an investment company led by Austrian Toto Wolff who said that it was purely a commercial decision.
In February 2011, Williams F1 announced plans to raise capital through an initial public offering on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in March 2011, with Sir Frank Williams remaining the majority shareholder and team principal after the IPO. As of December 2017, ownership is as follows: Frank Williams. Williams entered a custom March 761 for the 1977 season. Lone driver Patrick Nève appeared at 11 races that year, starting with the Spanish Grand Prix; the new team failed to score a point. For the 1978 season, Patrick Head designed his first Williams car: the FW06. Williams signed Australian Alan Jones, who had won the Austrian Grand Prix the previous season for a devastated Shadow team following the death of their lead driver, Tom Pryce. Jones's first race for the team was the Argentine Grand Prix where he qualified the lone Williams car in 14th position, but retired after 36 laps with a fuel system failure; the team scored its first championship points two rounds at the South African Grand Prix when Jones finished fourth.
Williams managed their first podium position at the United States Grand Prix, where the Australian came second, some 20 seconds behind the Ferrari of future Williams driver Carlos Reutemann. Williams ended the season in tenth place in the Constructors' Championship, with a respectable 16 points, while Alan Jones finished 12th in the Drivers' Championship. Towards the end of 1978 Frank Williams recruited Frank Dernie to join Patrick Head in the design office. Head designed the FW07 for the 1979 season with Frank Dernie picking up the aerodynamic development and skirt design; this was the team's first ground effect car, a technology first introduced by Colin Chapman and Team Lotus. Williams obtained membership of the Formula One Constructors' Association which expressed a preference for teams to run two cars, so Jones was partnered by Swiss driver Clay Regazzoni, it was not until the seventh round of the championship, the Monaco Grand Prix, that they achieved a points-scoring position. Regazzoni came close to taking the team's first win but finished second, less than a second behind race winner Jody Scheckter.
The next round at Dijon is remembered for
1972 Brazilian Grand Prix
The 1972 Brazilian Grand Prix was a Formula One non-championship race held at Interlagos on 30 March 1972. This race was held because at that time the FIA regulations required a demonstration race to be held as a quality check, before a Grand Prix was admitted as a championship race.

José Carlos Pace was a racing driver from Brazil. He participated in 73 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on March 4, 1972, he won one race, achieved six podiums, scored a total of 58 championship points. He secured one pole position. Pace was a contemporary of the Fittipaldi brothers and Emerson, began racing in Brazil in the late 1960s, he travelled to Europe in 1970 and competed in British Formula 3, winning the Forward Trust championship in a Lotus car. In 1971 he did not score any points from six races, he moved up to Formula One in 1972, competing with a Williams-entered March. He finished eighteenth in the Drivers' Championship, his best result came at the non-championship Victory Race. He competed in some further F2 and Can-Am races. For 1973, Pace moved to the Surtees team and improved to eleventh place in the championship after scoring a fourth place in Germany and his first championship podium finish with third in Austria, he set the fastest lap in both of these events.
He competed in three F2 races for Surtees, but his main racing activities outside F1 were in the World Sportscar Championship, in which he drove for the works Ferrari team. Sharing a 312PB with Arturo Merzario, the duo finished second at the Nürburgring and at Le Mans, third at Watkins Glen, he remained with Surtees for 1974 and scored a fourth-place finish in Brazil, but parted company with the outfit mid-season after falling out with the founder, John Surtees. He drove a entered Brabham for Goldie Hexagon Racing at the French Grand Prix but failed to qualify, before moving to the works team alongside namesake Carlos Reutemann for the next race. After struggling with the new machinery, he finished fifth and set the fastest lap at Monza, repeated the feat on his way to second, behind Reutemann, at Watkins Glen, securing a one-two finish for Brabham; the Brabham team's BT44B chassis were competitive throughout the 1975 season, allowing Pace and Reutemann to feature at the front of the grid. Pace duly took his first and only Formula One victory in front of his home crowd at the Brazilian Grand Prix, took his first pole position at the following race in South Africa, finished on the podium at Monaco and Silverstone, ending the season sixth overall in the Drivers' Championship and helping Brabham to second in the Constructors' Championship, behind Ferrari.
He remained with Brabham for 1976, but the car was much less competitive due to a change of engine, from Ford-Cosworth to Alfa Romeo. The Italian flat 12 units were larger, less reliable and less economical than their V8 predecessors, restricting Pace to fourteenth place in the championship, whilst Reutemann left the team before the end of the season. By the start of the 1977 season, the competitiveness and durability of the Alfa engines had been much improved for Pace and his new teammate, John Watson, he demonstrated this fact by taking second position at the season opener in Argentina, running in the next two Grands Prix before suffering from mechanical trouble, but he was unable to capitalise on the improved performance for the rest of the season due to his sudden death. Pace was killed in a private light aircraft accident near São Paulo, Brazil on 18 March 1977, 13 days after fellow F1 driver Tom Pryce and marshal Jansen Van Vuuren lost their lives during the 1977 South African Grand Prix.
The Interlagos track, the scene of his only F1 win in 1975, was renamed Autódromo José Carlos Pace in his honour. Pace is buried in Cemitério do Araça, São Paulo. In the 1977 motorsport film Bobby Deerfield, the eponymous title character is represented by Pace in the racing scenes. Henry, Alan. Brabham, the Grand Prix Cars. Osprey. ISBN 0-905138-36-8.
