1966 French Grand Prix

The 1966 French Grand Prix was a Formula One race held at Reims-Gueux on July 3, 1966. It was the '60th Anniversary race' of Grand Prix racing, which had started with the GP of France in 1906. Qualifying was firmly in the hands of Ferrari and especially Lorenzo Bandini with a pole set at 2:07.8 in his 3-litre 312/66. After the start, Bandini duly led, with Jack Brabham in his 'Old Nail' BT19 - which had a bit less straightline speed - following in his slipstream for a while. When the Italian had to retire due to a broken throttle linkage, Brabham took 1st place at the finish.
