Rothmans International races 1976-1979

After 12 seasons together, the New Zealand and Australian authorities parted company for 1976, the Kiwis running their races as the 'Peter Stuyvesant' series and the Australian races becoming the 'Rothmans International' series. The Kiwis changed to Formula Pacific (i.e. Formula Atlantic) after that initial series but the Aussies carried on for another three years.
