Silverstone return.—Jackie Stewart returned to Silverstone for the first time in two years and scored a very convincing victory in the International Trophy meeting for Team Tyrrell. Here he has just passed an unhappy Mike Hailwood (Surtees TS14) at Club Corner, while, in the background, can be seen Emerson Fittipaldi’s abandoned Lotus 72 which retired on the first lap when the flywheel sheared.

New mount.—Peter Revson drove his brand new McLaren M23 (No. 10) for the first time at the meeting and finished fourth. Here he rounds Copse with the dark threatening clouds in the background. For Mike Hailwood it was a less happy race and he fought terrific understeer in his Surtees (No. 5) and later retired.

Thrills and spills. — March Engineering Ltd.’s new Formula Three car is definitely the one to beat. In the opening round of the John Player Formula Three Championship the March 733s of Russell Wood and Ian Taylor dominated the proceedings and finished first and second. Both cars are works supported but Wood’s is sponsored by the Chequered Flag and Taylor’s by Baty Group. Becketts Corner surprised a number of competitors. Below, Brett Lunger is caught in the process of spinning away the lead of the Formula 5000 event in his Hogan Racing Lola T330. His team-mate David Hobbs is also in the picture and went on to win with Lunger recovering to finish a close second. Another Becketts spinner was Frank Gardner in the SCA Freight Chevrolet Camaro. Gardner was leading the saloon-car race but was being hard pressed by Brian Muir’s Dealer Team BMW 3.0 CSL, seen here passing the spinning American machine. Muir went on to win this exciting race.

Historic fun.—Although the JCB Historic Championship race was reduced to five laps, it still provided plenty of fun and games. The two leading contenders were Neil Corner and Willie Green, both in red Maserati 250Fs. Green in his first drive in the car showed plenty of speed but, as can be seen, failed to keep it pointing in the right direction, allowing Corner in car No. 21 to splash his way to overall victory. The over-3-litre category produced a spirited battle between two Historic sports cars, both Lister Jaguars, one sporting original bodywork while the other was a Costin-bodied car. Nick Faure in the Camel Hexagon model (No. 3) finally got the verdict, and third place overall, from Richard Bond in the Coopers Metals car (No. 2) which used to be raced by the late Jim Clark.
