RACE RESULTS - 1977 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
& NON-CHAMP RACES

Following a six year break I resumed my racing in 1977. Formula 1 cars had changed greatly during those six years so the old Scalextric Lotus 21s which formed the basis of all the cars I ran up to 1970, were no longer suitable. For the next ten years or so all my cars were built using Lexan shells made by Charlie Fitzpatrick in Southport.
