The Texaco Tour of Britain

The Texaco oil company has saved the 1976 Tour of Britain, threatened with cancellation by the withdrawal of sponsorship by Avon and Motor. The Texaco Tour, organised by the BRSCC as usual, will be longer than the three previous events and the prize fund will be larger. The BRSCC’s Peter Browning hopes for entries from several Grand Prix drivers (James Hunt is confirmed already) and Ford’s Stuart Turner has promised to combat them with rallymen Timo Makinen and Roger Clark
