The 1964 Formula 1 season was one of the most thrilling seasons in F1′s short history. After 1963, a year dominated by Jim Clark and the Lotus 25, the 1964 season saw a mere four constructors fight for victory every Grand Prix. At the final race of the season, three drivers from three different constructors were still in the hunt for the championship: Lotus’ Jim Clark, BRM’s Graham Hill and Ferrari’s John Surtees.
Over the course of this year, True Racing will cover the 1964 Formula 1 season as accurately as possible. Apart from season previews and reviews, every of the ten Grands Prix will be reported extensively with a Grand Prix preview, a qualifying report and a race report. The eight non-championship Grands Prix will also be reported. On top of that, two special races will also be treated: the Indy 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The articles will appear exactly 50 years after the events took place. That means that the article on the British Grand Prix, which took place on the 11th of July 1964, will be posted on 11 July 2014. The first article will be uploaded this Saturday. For updates, you can follow me on Twitter.
I hope you will enjoy the 1964 Formula 1 season!
