History

 
 

In 1976, Frank Williams joined Walter Wolf to run their Wolf Formula 1 team. By the end of the year they had a falling out and Frank Williams started a new Formula One team called Williams Grand Prix Engineering.

Williams Grand Prix Engineering purchased March 761-7 to campaign the 1977 Formula One season. Designer Patrick Head became involved and made some chassis stiffening improvements to the car. It was driven for Williams by Belgian driver Patrick Neve. The March was sponsored by the Belgian Belle-Vue brewery. The car’s best finish was 7th in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, as set forth in the results report below.

In that same year, Hall sold the car to Robert Marsland. Marsland went on to hill climb the car a couple of times. The car was finally sold to its current owner in 1995.
