chicane   passing   start

TransXL Mini Marcos Mk. IV at Thruxton (1978)

Championship Finals Day in 1978 - Steven Roberts needed to win the class to win the Championship outright. The red Fiat X1/9 was the first race for that car with Steve Soper. The meeting was televised (there was a Formula 3 race also) with Murray Walker commentating.

The shot at the chicane is at the same meeting. Steven did win the class and finished second overall so won the ModSports Championship outright. Photos kindly supplied by Steven Roberts.
