The only camera I had back in 1979 had developed a fault so these few pictures are rather poor. Nevertheless I am including them for posterity's sake.

All the shells you see in these pictures are Charlie Fitzpatrick-made.

Why are there 2 of some cars but only one of others? Good question! Next question?

Niki Lauda has walked away so the Brabham Alfa BT.48's are driven by Nelson Piquet and Riccardo Zunino.
The brown car is the Lotus 79-copy Rebaque HR100 driven by Hector.

We see Ricardo Patrese's Arrows A.1B
and the excellent Ferrari 312T4's of Gilles Villeneuve and Jody Scheckter.

The turbo Renault RS.10's of Jean-Pierre Jabouille and Rene Arnoux.

Alan Jones and Clay Regazzoni in the very successful Williams FW.7's.
Another Lotus look-alike. This is the A.T.S D.3 of Hans Stuck.

Again, an end of season shot because Jacky Ickx has replaced Patrick Depailler in the Ligier JS.11.
In the other car is, of course, Jacques Laffite.
The other car is possibly the worst-ever McLaren - the M29 of John Watson.

Arturo Merzario built his own F.1 car. This is the A.4.
It's hard to remember works Lotuses in Martini colours but in 1979, they were.
Still running the 79 for Mario Andretti and Carlos Reutemann.

Very poor picture of yet another Lotus copy, the Tyrrell 009.
Drivers are Didier Pironi and Jumper Jarier.
Emerson Fittipaldi was still trying with the Copersucar F.6.A.
