1976 Formula 2 European Championship
Probably the most competitive year of Formula Two racing ever, with 11 chassis manufactures and 6 engine manufactures.
The engine manufactures were BMW, Renault, Hart, Lancia, Ford and Arbath. The BMW was the most developed of the engines having been used since 1973. With the 1976 rules allowing engines purely developed for racing Renualt V6 and Hart entered the championship. The Lancia (V6 from the Startos) was powerful but suffered from a lack of development. The Arbath (holbay developed) was a straight six engine and only managed to practise a Thruxton where it suffered from crankshaft problems and was not seen again in the championship. The Ford engine had been around for a few years but didn't produce enough power to be competitve, it was really only used by small privateer drivers.

For Round 6 of the 1976 Formula 2 European Championship at Hockenheim there was a record entry for the season of 45 cars with only 26 cars allowed to start. All of the races (expect Estoril) had more cars enter than could start.
