A Spectator's Guide to 1979 British Racing

During a winter when even Formula One sponsorship stopped being the right of every team one could be forgiven for thinking that 1979 might be a very tough season indeed for those racing primarily in Britain. In fact the opening races of the British season proved that we are likely to see some of the most entertaining and financially well-supported motor racing seasons of all. The Aurora model car...
