Bob Berridge scored a dominant win in his RAM 01 in 1he third round of the FIA Cup for Thoroughbred Grand Prix Cars on June 9 at Anderstorp, Sweden, in front of a very enthusiastic 14,000-strong crowd who really appreciated seeing F1 cars racing at the circuit for the first time since 1979. His overheating problems now cured, Bob’s only hitch on the way to pole position and a dominant lights-to-flag victory was a failed clutch after first qualifying. Mike Wrigley (Shadow DN9) and Steve Hitchins (Lotus 78) engaged in a titanic scrap for second place in the sweltering 30-degree heat, which seemed to have been decided in Hitchins’ favour until he was sidelined by engine failure a few laps from home.

Michael Schryver (Lotus 72) therefore mounted the podium for the second race in a row and another Class A victory stretched his Championship lead still further. Jan Landgaard, the only Swede in the race, drove extremely well in the unique Chevron B41, now resplendent in its correct Durex livery. He wrested a Class B lead from Andrew Wareing (Williams FW06) in a daring move at the first corner, only to have a seemingly certain class win snatched away from him when he was the innocent victim in a contretemps between Errmanno Ronchi’s Brabham and Steve Pontin-Warltier’s chasing Arrows A5. Ronchi and Lundgaard were both stranded in the gravel, whilst the Arrows escaped to finish fourth overall. Wareing and Graham North (Lotus 92) made up the top six, with a disappointed Joaquin Folch (Lotus 87) behind. Folch had run extremely strongly in the early stages but was delayed by a pitstop to change a punctured tyre.
