Historic F2 takes the plaudits
Motoring racing fans were treated to this stunning March 722, which was driven by Niki Lauda in the 1972 Formula Two season. Lauda was already a regular in Formula One by 1972, but also took part in the lower formula to improve his driving skills. Powered by a Ford Cosworth V8 , the 722 was competitive and gave Lauda three podium finishes. However, in comparison, the F1 version was poor and plagued with reliability issues. Laura left March at the end of the season and took out a bank loan to buy himself a seat at BRM.
