The March 705 was built for Formula B in 1970, and was very closely related to the Formula 3 March 703 and Formula Ford March 708. The car was well off the pace, but did lay a foundation of dealers and customers for the much more successful 1971 car.

March 702 (1970 Formula 2)

The March 702 was March's first design for Formula 2, but the spaceframe design proved both too heavy and not stiff enough for F2. The team finally gave them some attention when the build season was over, and performances improved a little.

Lola T152

Theodore TY02
