PROSPECTS FOR THE NEW SEASON THE institution by MOTOR SPORT and Shell of an International Championship for this season's Formula Three racing has plainly provided this class of the sport with just the impetus it needs. Despite the "graduation" of last season's top four F3 performers to Formula Two, despite this being the last year of the present 1-litre regulations, and despite the complaints...

Formula Two review

Jarier scores maximum points Ford fight back Two opening rounds of the European Formula Two Championship at Mallory Park and Hockenheim were crushing victories for the combination of a March chassis, a BMW engine and the promising, if somewhat impetuous, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jarier. The two subsequent rounds of this important competition have both shaped up as further honours for Jarier but,...

Formula 2 review

The last two months have provided March Engineering with a pretty successful spell in Formula Two, for as well as their works driver Ronnie Peterson winning the European Trophy qualifiers at both Rouen and Mantorp Park, their private owners have been getting into the results as well. After Spring Bank Holiday's Crystal Palace meeting there was a two week lull before a couple of Italian non-...

Canadian Grand Prix

Revson beats the confusion Toronto, September 23rd Critics of rallying will always tell you that the trouble with that particular branch of motor sport is that often one has to wait hours to find out who won; when the result is announced it is often contested and, even then, because of timing error, or other factors, the wrong man can easily take the honours. These anti-rally people will tell you...

Car to watch: Brabham BT42

Formula 2 review

The European Formula Two season effectively came to an end at Vallelunga at the beginning of October when Ronnie Peterson secured the European Trophy with a convincing victory in the 22nd Rome Grand Prix. Thoughts that Peterson might be toppled from his domination of the Formula Two scene were high after the qualifying round at Albi in central southern France a fortnight before the Italian event...

The Argentine Grand Prix

With the first round of the 1975 World Championship taking place in Buenos Aires just three months after the chequered flag fell at Watkins Glen to end the 1974 season it could hardly be expected that many teams would turn up to the Argentine Grand Prix with many new cars. Thus, when the two freighter aircraft had finally been unloaded in South America and the cars rolled out at the circuit, the...

21st Spanish Grand Prix

—a lucky win for Lotus Montjuich Park, Barcelona, April 29th. Alternating as it does, between Madrid and Barcelona, the Spanish GP returned this year to the circuit round the Montjuich Park in the city of Barcelona. The Park, with its ornamental gardens and historic Palace, is on a hill between the docks and the southern end of the town centre and the road around the grounds provides a circuit as...

Jean Sage

"I'm primarily an enthusiast — If Renault were not in F1 I'd be quite happy to be involved in rallying. . ." Although the political side of motor racing has received a great deal of attention over the past few years, Formula One has never really been a business which attracts casual involvement. If you scratch slightly below the surface of any racing team or organisation, you will generally turn...

Notes on the cars in Spain

Although the instant reaction in the paddock at Jarama was that there was little that was near to the Grand Prix scene, closer inspection revealed that far more work has been done since last season than just painting the cars in new-sponsors colours. BRM and March had newly designed 1972 cars, while Lotus, McLaren and Brabham had newly built cars developed from last year's designs and most of the...
