Continental Notes

It now looks as though there is more than meets the eye in the "manoeuvrings" to get the German GP away from the Nurburgring. One "ministry man" involved with the Constructors Associations is clutching on to a fading document said to be "signed by all the F1 drivers" in which they unanimously agreed not to race at the Nurburgring in 1977. This was signed by those in action at the time at Monaco...

The Canadian Grand Prix

Justice for Hunt Mosport Park, Toronto, October 3rd The Canadian Grand Prix re-entered the World Championship calendar in 1976 follow-a year's absence, and the general feeling amongst the Formula One teams was one of satisfaction at the prospect of competing at the picturesque 2.4-mile circuit set in colourful woodland not far from the shores of Lake Ontario.
