British Formula Atlantic 1971
Although there was no lack of cars or engines, Formula Atlantic started slowly due to uncertainty over whether the new formula could succeed between F2 and F3. Formula Ford and F3 cars supplemented the grid at the first race and most of the cars this season were converted F2, F3 or even Formula Ford cars.
Yellow Pages sponsored the inaugural season and the championship became a battle between Vern Schuppan in the works Palliser and Cyd Williams in Graham Eden's Chevron B18C. Schuppan put together a string of first and second places and almost had the title in his pocket by September. Williams then won three on the trot but was too late the catch the Australian.
Brabhams were predictably the most numerous on the Atlantic grids and would have won any constructors title from Palliser, Chevron, March, Lotus and Royale by sheer weight of numbers.
