Warwick Brown was not a well-kown race driver when he first came to the U.S. late in 1974, but after competing in the final three races of the SCCA/USAC Formula 5000 Championship series he left little doubt of his potential. His 1974 finishes in third, fifth and 11th put him seventh in the final point standings that year. In 1975, Brown started off his racing season by capturing the Peter Stuyvesant Tasman Cup Championship in Australia/New Zealand. He led all but one of the eight races in his LolaT332, scored two victories and twice placed second for his best finishes. He also won the final race in the Tasman series in 1974. That victory culminated a 12-month battle of recovery from an accident in 1973 in which both of Brown’s legs were broken. He is a director of a family road building business after climbing his way up from digging ditches. Brown finished seventh in the 1975 Formula 5000 Championship series after finding it difficult to come to grips with a Jack McCormack-built Talon. His best finish of the year was a third at Mosport Park, the second race of the series. He scored a fourth at Watkins Glen and two sixth-place finishes at Mid-Ohio and Long Beach. This year(1976), Brown is behind the wheel of a Lola T332-C entered by Bob Bay of Bay Racing.
