Description

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.

History

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. It's period race results are listed below:
