Brabhams dominate Crystal Palace B.A.R.C.Whitsun Meeting
Crystal Palace,(May 30th) Formula Two-Two Heats
The domination of Formula Two races by the works Brabham-Hondas is becoming a rule to which there are few exceptions.
With a joint fastest practice time of 55.2 sec., both Jack Brabham and Dennis Hulme occupied the front row of the grid and stormed ahead in the first heat to take first and second places in that order.
In the second heat, Rees and Rindt led from the start, but by the end of lap one Brabham had taken the lead, Hulme joining him in the next lap to eventually win by a very short head.
