  • Description

    Jochen Rindt, of Austria, had a narrow victory at Snetterton today (Saturday) in the International 100 miles trophy race for cars in the new European formula two class. Rindt won by less than the length of his Repco-Brabham-Cosworth-Ford from Britain's Graham Hill in a Lotus-Cosworth-Ford.

    Rindt led from the start and for most of the race. Hill went in front twice only to be knocked back by the Austrian as he flew through the final laps to win in 59 minutes at an average of 108 miles an hour (175 kms an hour).

    In third place was another British driver, Alan Rees, driving a Repco-Brabham-Cosworth-Ford. Two New Zealanders came fourth and fifth while world champion, Jack Brabham of Australia, was sixth.

    Soon after the start two cars collided and one caught fire. British driver Chris Irwin, in a Lola-BMW, was hit by fellow-Briton Alan Fletcher in a Repco-Brabham-Cosworth-Ford. Fletcher was able to steer to safety but Irwin's car overturned and ignited. Irwin was later treated in hospital for a shoulder injury and facial cuts.
