1970

The World Championship is reduced to one single event, which is allocated to Thiverval (FRA), with the aim of encouraging the participation of competitors from out of Europe. This change is marked by the presence of a Brazilian team, which brings a desired exotic touch, and 18 nations are represented. François Goldstein (BEL) is succeeded by himself and forestalls David Ferris (GBR). In the preliminary phases the fastest practice time had been achieved by Hans Heyer (DEU) and the pole-position by Keke Rosberg/FIN (future F1 World Champion, in 1982) further to the qualifying heats. Germany wins the European Nations’ Championship ahead of Switzerland and François Goldstein (BEL), the individual European Championship.
