Swedish Formula 3 1974

Conny Andersson and Gunnar Nilsson were equipped with brand new March 743s with Novamotor's Toyota engine, but would meet stiff competition from an armada of one-year-old Brabhams and GRDs. Andersson won three races and finished third in the other two, to easily win the championship, while the other two races were won by Ulf Svensson's Brabham BT41 and Gunnar Nordström's GRD 373. A visiting Brian Henton took pole position at Knutstorp in September, and Nilsson, who was unlucky to only finish two races, was fastest qualifier at Mantorp Park.
