Hawk DL18 Formel 3 von Wolfgang Dietmann

Hawke Racing Cars was set up in 1969 by ex Lotus Components manager David Lazenby to produce cars for Formula Ford and later FF2000, an early success was the ’69 Scottish Formula Ford Championship for one Tom Walkinshaw. Throughout most of the 70s Hawke produced a number successful cars especially the DL15 that helped establish Derek Warwick’s reputation. In 1974 Mike Keegan, father of Rupert Keegan and owner of British Air Ferries, took a controlling interest in the company and grandiose plans that included an Adrian Reynard designed F1 and F3 cars were announced. Although the F1 car did not appear the F3 car did, however following problems with the F3 car and with the F Ford cars becoming less successful Hawke disappeared from the scene at the end of the 70s.                     ( Quelle: www.f3history.co.uk/manufacturers/hawke)
