Sports Round-up

Formula Two A three week gap between the Mugello round of the European Formula Two Championship and the next race in Sweden, at Karlskoga, gave March Engineering time to assemble their most ambitious challenge ever seen in this category of racing. Not only did they enter regular Championship contenders, Patrick Depailler and Hans-Joachim Stuck, but they had also persuaded Colin Chapman to lend...

Extended tuning test: The Spa 24 Hours in a Group 1 BMW CS !

If you read D.S.J.'s reports over a period of time, there comes a point when it seems you have to go and experience what he describes in his Continental travels, or be for ever damned for missing classic events that may never be held again. Strictly speaking my interests are confined to the addition of sparkle to what, for the main part, are ordinary family saloons. Occasionally there's a golden...

4 Hours of Monza

Private BMWs Sweep ETCC Opener Th 1974 European Touring Car Championship started with a closely contested yet strangely disappointing race at Monza. Neither the Ford nor the BMW works teams entered owing to their severely curtailed competition budgets, whilst the SCA Chevrolet Camaro that Frank Gardner and Brian Muir were to drive fell foul of engine problems in practice and withdrew. A strong...

Alfa Romeo takes Championship Lead

AFTER THE relatively new, modern autodromes of Mugello and Dijon, the stage scenery for the fourth and fifth rounds of the World Championship for Makes was changed to two long-established, classic circuits: Monza and Spa. Both are steeped in tradition, having an ambience that the new tracks can hardly hope to have attained yet, and both are very, very fast, even though there is now a permanent,...

Monza 4 hours ETC

Alain Peltier and Jean-Louis Lafosse won the first round of this year's European Touring Car Championship at Monza in their 3.5-litre BMW CSL. In the absence of the works teams from Munich and Cologne, it was left to privately entered BMWs to fill the first four places, the Peltier/Lafosse car entered by La Precision Liegoise winning by just over a minute after four hours. The only Ford to offer...

24 Hours de Francorchamps: a hardy perennial

Although much younger than its 24 Hours sister at Sarthe, the Spa-Francorchamps race through the equivalent of a day and a night has fast established its own traditions during 28 editions. Until 1974, when a diversionary loop around a traffic island at Malinedy was introduced, the average speeds set by the participating saloon cars were astonishing—the fastest Spa 24 Hours went to Jochen Mass/...

Spa 24-hour & Zandvoort 4-hour

ETC rounds 5 and 6 to Hezemans/Quester and BMW. Toine Hezemans and Dieter Quester completed a brilliant double for the BMW works team of 3.0 CSLs, winning both the Spa 24 hr. race on July 21st-22nd and the Zandvoort 4 hr. race on August 12th. BMW thus take a 20 point lead from Ford in the European Touring Car Championship, with 110 points to 90, while Hezemans leads Brian Muir in the drivers'...
