And with the same driver twice in a row at the top of the timesheet, Britain’s Stuart Hall , untouchable in two McLarens: first the M19A which looked like a rocket in the D Series “Jackie Stewart“! This all-white 1971 car in Yardley cosmetics livery, completed its best lap in 1:30.096, two seconds faster than its pursuers: the Matra MS120C of Jordan Grogor, the South African based in Dubai , and the BRM P153 of Mexican Esteban Gutierrez, once driven by his legendary compatriot Pedro Rodriguez.
Same story in the E Series, since Hall, in a 1973 McLaren M23, was faster than Roberto Moreno, the former Benetton F1 driver, entered in a 1974 Lola T370. Hall got two seconds close to the best time clocked in 1973 by Denny Hulme in qualifications, the day before a Grand Prix won by Jackie Stewart (Tyrrell) ahead of Emerson Fittipaldi and Ronnie Peterson (Lotus).
