Tracks are still chosen at random, and the first round was held at Anderstorp, Sweden, 1973, for 24 laps. This is the track at which, in 1978 (with a slight modification to the layout), the infamous Brabham BT47 -- known as the "fan car" -- made its one and only appearance before being banned. A giant fan had been built into the back of the car, to pull air over and under it at a higher rate of speed, increasing the aerodynamic downforce.
No worries about downforce with our simulated 1967 machinery, however...
Pictures deleted to make way for the next diary.
Next race: Monte Carlo, Monaco (1967).
