Lorenzini badly damaged the 312B3 when testing it the following year at Silverstone.
Yes, it was the first time it had happened. They said it was the.most expensive grid to be assembled. First time I saw the breadvan.

Other British circuits did hold rounds during that time such as Silverstone, Mallory (!), Brands Hatch and notably Donington which held a round annually from its re-opening in 1977 to Formula Two's end in 1984.
Hehehe funnily enough I was just reading about the Mallory F2 race in 1971 (In the Niki Lauda biog).... it seems championship rounds were at Thruxton and the Palace, but there was also a non champ race with all the Euro boys running at Mallory in March 1971. The I Speed International Trophy race. It featured the likes of Lauda (his first ever F2 race, with March). Some big names on the entry list although some were no shows on race day (the Rondels for Regga and Schenken DNA'd) Pescarolo, Birrell, Brian Hart, Beuttler, Reutemann, Bell, Watson, Lauda, Siffert, Peterson, Walkinshaw, etc.etc all raced.
One of the DNA's was Graham Hill in an Ecclestone entered Lotus 69 FVA

I do have some pictures but they are35mm slides, one of my next jobs is to get a scanner & convert them to digital, but that will be when I finish decorating!

You swine RB, beat me too it!

The subject of my rummage was Pat Blakeney-Edwards, following on from RB's excellent display of the man. It illustrates just how versatile he is, and I'm sure there are more to be unearthed.

To be more specific it is the Neckar Weinsberg 500 Coupe .... it has the wraparound rear window... the Limousin had a flat rear glass with side windows. Only 3 in the UK apparently, with only one RHD.
It is also the 'luxury version'... it has a two tone bodywork and a sliding sunroof rather than a folding roof.

When it comes to Fiat 500 what a batch of pedantic specialists we are !!! Must cost an arm and a kidney for a 26 HP asmatic twin powered limo…*I owned a Nuova, a Giardiniera and a Lutece. Great moments on the highway!
