  • Description

    JACKIE STEWART, THE 29-YEAR-OLD SCOTTISH DRIVER, WON THE 36TH ITALIAN GRAND PRIX AT MONZA YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) WITH A RECORD AVERAGE SPEED OF 130.46 M.P.H. (209.964 KPH).

    BRITAIN TOOK TOP HONOURS AT THE MONZA CIRCUIT WITH A BRITISH CAR AND DRIVER WHEN JACKIE STEWART TOOK THE CHEQUERED FLAG IN ONE OF THE WORKS. V-8 B.R.M.S. GRAHAM HILL, THE 36-YEAR-OLD BRM TEAM LEADER, TOOK SECOND PLACE. THIRD PLACE WENT TO DAN GURNEY OF THE UNITED STATES IN A BRABHAM AND FOURTH PLACE TO LORENZO BANDINI OF ITALY DRIVING FERRARI.

    JIM CLARK, DRIVING A LOTUS, LED AT THE START IN A PACK OF FAST CARS THAT CONTAINED THE BRM'S STEWART AND HILL, THE FERRARIS OF BANDINI AND SURTEES AND THE BRABHAM OF DAN GURNEY. FOR LAP AFTER LAP THE LEADERS PASSED AND REPASSED EACH OTHER IN A TIGHT BUNCH WITH BARELY A SECOND BETWEEN THE LEADER AND THE SIXTH CAR IN THE BUNCH. THEN IN THE 64TH LAP CLARK HAD TO RETIRE WITH ELECTRICAL TROUBLE AND THE TWO BRMs WERE LEFT OUT IN FRONT, RUNNING AT TIMES SIDE BY SIDE. STEWART EVENTUALLY JUST BEAT HILL IN ONE OF THE CLOSEST FINISHES IN TOP CLASS RACING FOR YEARS.

    STEWART'S WIN IS HIS FIRST IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. HE BEGAN MOTOR RACING FIVE YEARS AGO AND AFTER MANY FORMULA 3 SUCCESSES HE WAS SIGNED UP BY BRM.
