Race Report: Jyllandsring, 5 August 1973


This race was held at the Danish circuit of Jyllandsring on the same day as the Forward Trust round at Thruxton so entries were mostly limited to Scandinavian drivers with one notable exception, Randy Lewis in his Wranglers Brabham BT41, this was probably because the race was the Wrangler Grand Prix of Denmark. The event was held over two races with aggregate times deciding the final result.

Hakan Dahlqvist took pole position in his Merlyn from the March of Conny Andersson and Lewis’ Brabham. Lewis won the first heat by 1.2 seconds from Andersson with Ulf Svensson in third after a great drive from the back of the grid. Andersson jumped the lights twice at the start of heat 2 causing both starts to be aborted but third time lucky and this time Andersson got it right and took the lead he would hold for the rest of the race. Lewis tailed the Swede for the whole of the race finishing 0.7 seconds down at the finish to take the overall win by 0.5 seconds with Svensson again in third.
