Packed grid promised as DFV power comes to France


Dijon-Prenois will echo to the sound of Cosworth DFVs during the Masters Historic Formula One Championship from 14-16 June.

Round three, at the 2.362-mile circuit, will be headed by reigning champion Andrew Beaumont in his ex-Ronnie Peterson Lotus 76/1.

Stiff opposition will come in the form of Larry Kinch’s Williams FW06 and American Charles Nearburg’s newly acquired McLaren M23, which was driven in period by James Hunt.

Michel Baudoin, meanwhile, will get behind the wheel of his Olympus-liveried Hesketh 308E, while Ensign MN180s will be piloted by James Hagan and Simon Fish.

Ian Simmonds’ ex-Michele Alboreto Tyrrell 012 will lead the post-’78 category that will include Christophe D’Ansembourg (Williams FW07C), plus Frenchmen Christian Perrier (Shadow DN9) and David Ferrer (McLaren M28).

The weekend will also play host to the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship, the Masters Pre-’66 Touring Car Championship and the Pre-’66 Gentlemen Drivers GT Championship.
