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.

1962 Monaco Grand Prix: McLaren Carries the Cooper Flag back to the Top
By the beginning of the 1962 Formula One season Jack Brabham had left Cooper to form his own racing team. It seemed the glories days of the double World Championship were well and truly behind them. However, left in Brabham's stead would be a man very akin to the Australian in so many ways.
