1968 Tecno Formula 2 Roller
Serial Number: TO0288
(no chassis plate as on all Tecnos,
number stamped on the chassis)
Logbooks: FIA papers dated March 1991
Condition: restored rolling chassis
Price: 115,000 FRF (approx. 19,300 USD)
The car was restored in 1990 but only used occasionally in testing. Originally configured and homologated
with a Cosworth FVA it is offered without engine but otherwise complete.
Formed by Luciano and Gianfranco Pederzani in Bologna the Tecno concern began as a successful
producer of karts, winning numerous national and world championships. In 1965 a 250cc F4 car
was launched folowed by an Italian Formula 850. In 1966 a new F3 design placed 3rd on its first outing
and won successive championships in 1968 and 1969.
The inevitable move upmarket brought the F2 car for 1968, which contested the championship through
two teams. These were tough, chuckable cars, in the manner of karts, and complimented the character
of the men who drove them, like Reutemann and Regazzoni, who took the F2 Championship in 1970.
As with many small concerns, the final upmarket move to F1 proved the last, with the resources of the
team consumed through '72 and '73 in an unsuccessful attempt to compete at that level. The cars for
the lesser formulas, however, proved some of the best of the late 60s, winning championships in F3, F2,
and even US Formula Ford, with a works-modified F3 car at the hands of none other than Skip Barber.
This is the ex-Ron Harris Tecno which was entered in the 1968 European Formula 2 championship.
