It began with a 5-lap Scratch Race for vintage and p.v.t....

Leila Lombardi We were saddened to hear of the recent death of Leila Lombardi, who entered the record books on April 27 1975 by becoming the first woman to score a point — or at least half a point — in a World Championship F1 Grand Prix.

Renault 5 Turbo

This pocket rocket was a Group B forerunner with performance to match its outlandish looks.
