Robert Austin in a Surtees Formula 1 car during the Masters 1966-1985 Grand Prix Cars race, Silverstone Classic, 23rd/24th/25th July 2010.
Initially covering the period between 1968 to 1978 (arrival of the 3 litre Cosworth up to the start of the ‘Ground Effect’ era), last season Masters extended the period to include the final days of the non turbo era between 1983 & 85.
After two lean years during which Carlos Pace managed to score the team’s only points for a fourth place, in 1976 Durex finance and Alan Jones arrived at Team Surtees. The controversial sponsorship deal enabled Jones to score points on 3 occasions in the new TS19, a feat repeated by Vittorio Brambilla the following season.
