Madrid (July 23rd)

Jim Clark has now won two of this year's Spanish Formula Two races, for he followed up his earlier Barcelona victory by winning the 116-mile race at the inaugural meeting on the new Jarama Circuit near Madrid.

The circuit has been built in a hilly and parched area to the north of the capital City. It was designed by the Dutchman Hugenholtz, who has packed eleven corners into just over two miles.
