1980 March 80A news, pictures, specifications, and information

The British racing car constructor, March Engineering, is well known for their Formula One automobiles though the company's greatest success was in other series, such as Formula 2 and Formula 3. The name 'March' was formed by its founders, Max Mosley, Alan Rees, Graham Coaker and Robin Herd. The company was formed in 1969 with their first vehicle being a Formula 3 car. A year later the 701 chassis was introduced and intended for F1 competition. Frank Costin aided in the creation of the 711 chassis which was shown a year later.

In 1980 March produced 25 examples of the 80A single-seater racer for the Formula Atlantic/B Series.

1959 German Grand Prix: Briton-Italian Dominance Amidst the Darkness
In the pages of Formula One history, the weekend of the 1959 German Grand Prix is usually remembered for a couple of incidents. One of those would see a providential escape. The other, unfortunately, would end in tragedy. Most unfortunate is the fact these two events, though very considerable in the annals of motor racing history, would largely overshadow what would end up being one of the most dominant performances by a Briton in an Italian car. Tony Brooks had proven himself, his talent, wi...[Read more...]

1997 Hungarian Grand Prix: Arrows Misses the Target and Wins

Arrows had been the consummate tail-end team, yet on this day, even though they missed the target, they would win. There have been many David versus Goliath stories; many stories of the underdog coming...[Read more...]
1968 Belgian Grand Prix: A First for McLaren
McLaren and Formula One are truly synonymous. Over the course of its history, McLaren has completed 714 races and have garnered no less than 178 victories. But while McLaren and victory in Formula One are an almost certainty, the very first would be anything but a complete surprise. In December of 1959, Jack Brabham would be leading the way in his Cooper T51 with Bruce McLaren following along not all that far behind. The final lap of the United States Grand Prix held at Sebring, Florida has j...[Read more...]
