Competitive BMC




I seem to remember many years ago watching a Formula Two race on TV from a circuit in UK.

The main protagonists were Jim Clark, obviously in a Lotus, Graham Hill (car unknown), and Jackie Stewart, who I am fairly certain was driving a Cooper BMC.

As expected, these three dominated the race, and after the lead had changed hands a few times, Stewart took over at the front and began to pull away. Unfortunately I cannot remember the outcome, but I think the Cooper ran out of steam and retired.

If one consdiers the calibre of Stewart’s rivals, it is obvious that this was at least one occasion when the BMC engine was on full song, assuming of course that my memory is correct on this matter.

Does anyone else remember this race?
