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.

1968 Belgian Grand Prix: A First for McLaren

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...]
