March 772

My brother has a March 772 ex N.Z. that is giving us a lot of problems sorting out history and Ken Smith can't seem to assist. Can you, if I give you details??

I believe we have started a new thread.

If Ken Smith cant id it for you it must be a hard one then.I'm sure less than a handful of 77's ever came here.A 772 would be unusual because most of them were 77Bs or 773s with the narrow sidepods that were used here.Does your 772 have the wide F2 sidepods?.The Marches weren't overly sucessfull here against the Chevrons and Ralts.It wasn't until Fabi came here with the 78B in 1979 they won some races.

I have pretty good histories of 772s in period for the first couple of years of their lives and might be able to throw some light.

My brother will contact soon re. his March which is 772-5, but in N.Z. was always known as 77B; talk about a can of worms.

But didn't Brett run that car in UK. Did he then take it back to NZ after the 77 British Atlantic season?

From the on the Missing March Sprint and Hillclimb Cars of the 70s thread.

This one's a bit tricky as Williams starts the season in his 752; then his upgraded 752/772; then the 772 and quite possibly a 772/782 before the end of the year - although I haven't found the last part yet.

I've tried to pinpoint where he first drives the 772 and Autosport kindly obliges (22 June 1978 p57) with a "first time out in his F2 March" remark. So that would imply that he had been in the 752/772 at Curborough 4 June, not the 772 as it says on BritishSprint.org.

I can't find any reference to it having 782 mods in 1978 so I'm going to change the specification on ORC to 772-Hart 420R for that season.

Edit: Also flicked through 1979 and Autosport keeps calling his mount a 772. I'm be fairly confident then that the 772P that you have for him at Talbenny 16 Sep 1979 would be that same 772-6.

Allen, I will have to check back on the Curborough event. In the Black Book it says it is the 752 however it is riddled with inaccuracies. I do have Williams in the 752 at the start of the season. Also at which event in 22 June 1978Autosport is the comment about this being his first time out in the 772?

Finally on my version of the database I have Williams in the 772/782 for the 1979 Talbenny event so I have instigated a cross check between my version and the on-line version.

Thanks.

driftwood has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Why not ask Ted directly? No I do not have a contact for him but he will be in the book, under motorhomes!

Your use or is it mis-use of CAPITALS (Sorted - see above! - JT) is quiet tiresome! Reading your posts is a trial in itself.

Are you implying that Ted Williams runs a Motorhome Mechanics business?

It was a very minor club event - not a RAC round or a BARC.

Have you ever got anywhere with the Rodney Eyles 772 in 1985? He suddenly appears out of nowhere with a highly competitive car and Autosport says nothing.

As I tell her, INDOORS- get over it (Well Steve might, but I won't, so be prepared to get beaten by my editing stick - JT)
Yes, motorhomes; he is in the Bristol area. I had a tel # for him years ago, but that was then, and this is now!

If that is the case then I suspect the reporter may have been inferring that it was the first time at that venue or even the first time he had seen the car!

In the meantime when I have some time to check I will go back to my records and see what I can turn up.
