Jabouille narrowly heads French Renault invasion

Jean-Piere Jabouille snatched the European Formula Two title neatly from the grasp of Rene Arnoux in a tense final round confrontation at Hockenheim, Germany. The tall blonde Frenchman ended a six-year stay in Formula Two by stealing the Championship in the dying moments of a tough year. His spaceframe Elf 2 edged Arnoux's Martini out of the Championship by a single point, thanks to some...

The Austrian Grand Prix

A strange affair Knittelfeld, August 13th It never ceases to amaze that the Grand Prix at the Osterreichring has become so established in such a relatively short space of time, the first GP being held in 1970.

The Dutch Grand Prix

Hunt wins through Zandvoort August 29th There seemed to be a happy atmosphere pervading the paddock on Friday morning as cars were prepared for practice.

The Spanish Grand Prix

Andretti and Lotus in form again Jarama, Madrid, May 8th After racing in South America, South Africa and on the West Coast of the United States of America the Grand Prix scene returned to Europe with the Spanish Grand Prix run over 75 laps of the "mickey-mouse" Jarama circuit.
