Autosport (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Denny Hulme (Brab­ham-repco BT20) speeds past the pits, and its ex­cel­lent ad hoc van­tage point, en route to third (al­beit two laps down) in the 1966 French Grand Prix, the last time the race was held at the Reims-gueux cir­cuit. It was won by Jack Brab­ham (Brab­ham-repco BT19) af­ter Lorenzo Ban­dini (Fer­rari 312) was forced to re­lin­quish the lead by a bro­ken throt­tle link­age. Brab­ham be­came the first driver to win a world cham­pi­onship grand prix in a car bear­ing his own name. Mike Parkes (Fer­rari 312) was an im­pres­sive se­cond on his F1 de­but for the Scud­e­ria.
