Formula Two Review

That Jacques Laffite would win the French-dominated 1975 European Formula 2 championship was never really in doubt.

F2 Review

Stuck the unbeatable The European Formula Two Championship which started at the splendid Montjuich Park circuit at Barcelona on March 24th looks like being dominated yet again by the Anglo-German alliance of the March chassis and BMW engines.
