Formula One

The Season of Firsts The 1967 Formula One season was, in many ways, a season of firsts. Jim Clark won the Dutch Grand Prix racing the Lotus 49—a car he was driving for the first time—in its very first outing. Dan Gurney became the first (and only) American driver to win a Grand Prix in a car of American construction with his victory at the Belgian Grand Prix at the Spa Franchorchamp circuit. Honda became a first-time winner at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza with John Surtees aboard. And Pedro Rodriguez won the first race of the season in South Africa at the Kylami track in, perhaps, the only Grand Prix season when every full-time constructor except Ferrari and BRM won a championship race. Coincidentally, it was also the last season before the introduction of aero elements to the sport.

Despite all of the engineering innovations on display that season, the Formula One championship went to Jack Brabham in his BT24, a car notable for its lack of sophistication (compared to other constructor’s cars), demonstrating that durability matters, especially in racing. My 1967 Formula One illustrations feature a background that includes a graphic adapted from the event poster for the race the car won, as well as each track.

Gurney Eagle Weslake


Twelve cylinders of screaming power topped by what might be the most beautiful set of exhaust headers ever made. A highly successful motor racing driver in many disciplines, Dan Gurney had been driving in Formula One since the late 1950s. While driving for the Brabham works team, he joined with a group of prominent motor racing figures and financial backers in the United States, including Carroll Shelby, to found All American Racers. AAR’s first major race win came in the 1967 Race of Champions at Brands Hatch, with Gurney taking the aluminium-chassised 102 to victory in this prestigious non-Championship season opener. 104 was introduced at Zandvoort, the Netherlands, early in 1967; the lightest and fastest of the Eagle Mk1 vehicles, it was with this car that Gurney scored the team’s only Championship victory: the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix held at Spa-Francorchamps.
