1973

Terry Fullerton (GBR) manages to stand up to François Goldstein (BEL) and in Nivelles (BEL) he wins the world title on the very ground of the firm favourite. The two Drivers stand out from the other competitors; their duel starts in practice and continues in the qualifying heats. After a collision, they are even both disqualified from a heat by the Stewards. As a consequence, they start the first final from the middle of the grid only. Starting 13th, Fullerton manages to win the first round, from which Goldstein retires because of a puncture. Goldstein starts from the 22nd place in the second final and wins it but this feat nonetheless proves insufficient and he is behind Fullerton in the cumulated classifications. And Fullerton manages again to beat Goldstein in the European Championship, the final of which is held in Munich (DEU). Italy, in the ranks of which serve two future Formula One Drivers, Riccardo Patrese and Eddie Cheever, wins the Nations’ Championship. While Alain Prost (FRA) grasps the CIK Juniors’ Cup, a young Brazilian named Ayrton Senna da Silva wins at Interlagos (BRA) the very first kart race in which he takes part!
