1976 Austrian Grand Prix


1-DVD (100 Minutes)

The complete 1976 Austrian Grand Prix with German commentary.


Held on August 15th 1976 at the Österreichring circuit in Austria, this would be the only major
F1 and European victory for Penske Racing, as British driver (from Northern Ireland) John Watson takes the victory.
It was a poignant win for the Penske team, coming a year after the death of their former driver Mark Donohue at the
same circuit the previous season. Roger Penske withdrew the team at the end of year to refocus on Champ Car racing.

Though John Watson had a comfortable lead, positions 2-4 were tight, with Jacques Laffite,
Gunnar Nilsson, and James Hunt battling till the end. Also in the race were legends
Mario Andretti (5th), Hans Stuck (who is interviewed after he crashes), and Ronnie Peterson (6th).

This was the last race where a Ferrari would not be entered, and current points leader
Niki Lauda was not on the grid. Also seen in this race are the two controversial
Tyrrell P34 Six-Wheelers, driven by Jody Scheckter and Patrick DePailler.
Both cars suffered suspension failures before lap 15, and were out of the race.
