The 43rd Italian Grand Prix

Deadly dull for Monza Monza, Italy, September 10th. As reported last month in Continental Notes the Monza circuit was slowed down by the introduction of two chicanes so that when the teams began testing and practising for the 43rd Italian Grand Prix there was quite a lot to learn. The wide track in front of the pits was divided in two by a line of rubber cones which kept the cars in the right-...

The Belgian Formula One Race

(Belgian Grand Prix) Nivelles-Baulers, June 4th On paper the Belgian Grand Prix took place on June 4th over 85 laps of the new Nivelles-Baulers Autodrome just south of Bruxelles in the flat industrial area near Charleroi. What happened in fact was a nice tidy race for Formula One cars on a standardised, characterless autodrome that could have been anywhere and the race could have been any race in...

2nd Brazilian Grand Prix

Another comfortable Lotus victory THERE ARE Grands Prix that are tense and closely fought with the lead see-sawing between several teams and the verdict in question until the closing few laps and there are others where the result looks almost a foregone conclusion, even in practice. But, in these cases, the unexpected sometimes happens and the cars that made the running in practice may hit...

Notes on the cars at Monte Carlo

Two notable things stood out in the line-up of cars at Monte Carlo, following the Zolder race two weeks previous, one was that Team Lotus were back to three cars after their brief moment of satisfaction with two cars for each of their drivers, and the Tyrrell team were mechanically all back to square one. Other teams had been as hard, if not harder, at work but the effect was only noticeable in...

Notes on the Cars at Mosport Park

The Canadian Grand Prix followed only two weeks after the Italian so the majority of cars had to be transported back to England and loaded up on the Tradeswinds aircraft for Canada inside ten days. This left little time for anything other than a quick wipe over and spanner check plus replacing the bent parts on those cars that had bounced off the chicanes. However, one completely new car appeared...

The Austrian Grand Prix

— A washoutOsterreichring, Knittelfeld, August 17th The entry list for the Austrian Grand Prix was very full, almost to the point of overflowing as regards drivers, but after the debacles of the British Grand Prix and the German Grand Prix there was a distinct shortage of racing cars. The McLaren team were reduced to M23/9 for Fittipaldi and M23/6 for Mass, with no spare car, and Lotus had 72/R9...

Formula 2 review: end of an era

A series of four races held in Brazil and Argentina during November brought to an end the 1,600-c.c. Formula Two which had been in effect from the start of 1967. These events, two at Sao Paulo's Interlagos track and one each at Porto Alegre and Cordoba (Argentina's single race) marked a dramatic turn in the fortunes of European Trophy victor Ronnie Peterson and March generally for they failed to...

Race of champions and surprises

Brands Hatch, March 18th. BRANDS HATCH'S Race of Champions has, for several years, started the European Formula One season but anyone looking for a pointer for the year from the results of the 1973 race can forget it—unless the lesson learned is that Formula One cars are going to be more unreliable than ever before. It turned out to be a quite extraordinary race during which the lead changed five...

Argentine Grand Prix

Lotus win a classic race BUENOS AIRES January 28th. THE 1973 Grand Prix racing season opened, despite all the recent squabbling, with a classic contest at Buenos Aires Municipal Autodrome in late January. It was the kind of battle packed with intrigue and excitement, which surely made every one of the 100,000 plus spectators resolve to come again next year. Isn't that what motoring racing is all...
