HECTOR OR EMILIO?
Further to Mr Crawford’s letter in the September edition concerning who was the last privateer in Formula One, Hector Rebaque did indeed race on into 1979, eventually running his own Penske-built Rebaque HR100. I am, however, not so sure he is the last privateer in to compete in the World Championship. I have a recollection of Emilio de Villota trying to qualify a private March a couple of years later, but I can’t track this down in any reference books. Can anyone shed any light on this?
