CANADIAN GRAND PRIX
SHOTS THROUGH THE SPRAY.—The conditions at Mosport Park caused the Canadian Grand Prix to be fore-shortened. The main excitement was the battle for the lead between Jackie Stewart’s Tyrrell and Ronnie Peterson in the red SIP-March. Some, like Helmut Marko (BRM P153—No. 31), were caught out by the terrible conditions, opposite-lock slides were the order of the day, note Beltoise in Matra No. 21, while HuIme in McLaren No. 9 drove up the field to fourth place. Before he crashed Beltoise held a strong third place and is pictured leading Donohue’s McLaren, Fittipaldi’s Lotus and Cevert’s Tyrrell, while further down the field Jo Siffert lost all chance of victory when he damaged the nose in a first lap incident. He leads tail-enders Marko, Eaton and several March 711s but had to make a pit stop. The race was the first appearance of a Formula One McLaren in the colours of Roger Penske Racing and in his first Fl event Mark Donohue finished a commendable third.
