Turkish Grand Prix, Istanbul, Turkey (Week 10: 1964)
After an insane race that saw just 3 cars finish, FOAC released very tight safety guidelines for next year. No new parts will be allowed for next year, and there will be mandatory pre-race inspections. "The fans are here to watch cars race, not tow trucks" said the chairman.
Lap 2: Daan barely manages a lap for the final race of the season. The Vienna driver completed just 2 of 10, but won both.
Lap 4: M. Hancock stalls out and must retire.
Lap 6: Garcia is still getting used to driving at such speeds and his engine blowing sure doesn't help.
Lap 12: Stokely undercuts a turn and the curb wrecks his underbelly. The 3rd-place driver won't win back-to-back titles.
Lap 13: Neither will B. Hancock!
Lap 16: Incident in Istanbul! A crash takes out D. Halley in his last Grand Prix. The crowd shows its gratitude to the GM pioneer and 2-time race winner in his final race. Keikel must also retire, and it seems either Morell or Fehrvar will win the Driver's championship!
Lap 18: Poor Bruno Da Silva. He falls just short of managing to get classified.
Lap 19: Disaster! Morell overheats again! He'll be classified but won't score. If Fehrvar gets a point the tie will be broken!
|DNF||B. Da Silva||Galas||-||-|
*Did not finish but completed 90% of the race.
Fehrvar clinches the title! Who would have thought that when he started as a privateer, only finishing 3/6 races, that we'd get to where we are now? Good for him! After an impressive showing from Savic in this race, Isuzu sign him full-time to partner Kujiro, and vow to work on reliability for a big constructor push next year. Communist Hungary-backed MNV win an unlikely Constructor's championship, and Fehrvar becomes the first ever double champ!

Sorry for the lack of updates. School is kicking my ass and obviously that's my #1 priority. I will update as much as I can without risking my future. Thanks for the support, and any suggestions are more than welcomed. I'll leave you with a sneak peek at a new track next season... time to leave Europe!
