By 1973, non-championship Formula 1 races were history and Oulton Park's feature races, the Gold Cup and traditional Good Friday meeting, turned to Formula 5000 and eventually to National F1 and F2 categories. The races attracted top national and international drivers such as Redman, Gethin, Purley, Guy Edwards and Teddy Pilette, and the racing remained as entertaining and the cars as spectacular as ever. Occasionally, the stars did come back to Oulton, the Tour of Britain bringing Graham Hill, James Hunt and rallying's Roger Clark and Billy Coleman. World champions-to-be Alan Jones, Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell honed their skills in Formula Ford, F3 and F5000, while club racing thrived. 100 superb pictures, many previously unpublished, recall this period of consolidation at the beautiful Cheshire circuit.(Legate) Cortinaa€“ Forda#39;s Bestseller (Robson) Coventry Climax Racing Engines ( Hammill) Daimler SP250 New Edition ...
