1975 March 751

The 1974 March 741 was a logical refinement of designer Robin Herd's idea to marry his dominant straight-forward F2 chassis with the Cosworth DFV for F1. It was a theme which proved very aerodynamically efficient and would be continued through 1976.

The March 751 was designed by Robin Herd and used during the 1975 Formula One season. The five (or six) examples produced were powered by a Ford Cosworth DFV V8 engine mated to a Hewland transmission. They were used by the Beta Team March, Lavazza March, and Penske Cars teams with drivers including Mark Donohue, Lella Lombardi, Vittorio Brambilla, and Hans-Joachim Stuck.

At Sweden, the 751 was position on pole, but retired early due to transmission issues. Its best outing was at the Austria Grand Prix where it finished first overall. Plagued by accidents and reliability issues, the Beta Team would finished the season in 8th place, having achieved 8 points, just one point behind the John Player Team Lotus team and two behind the UOP Shadow Racing Team.
