The 1 Litre F3 'Screamers' - Assorted Photos of a memorable class

In the late sixties anyone interested in where the next generation of Formula One drivers were developing had to look no further than Formula Three. With thriving national series throughout Europe interspersed with occasional international events, works teams from Matra, Lotus, Cooper, Tecno, Renault Alpine, McLaren (really!) and Chevron, numerous fast privateer Brabhams plus quick cars from smaller manufacturers such as Titan, Merlyn, Pygmée, Alexis, Gemini, McNamara, BWA, Birel and De Sanctis, all with similar perfomance from the almost ubiquitous MAE downdraught 'screamer' F3 provided an almost perfect recipe for spectacular racing.
