1976 BRSCC Tricentrol Super Saloon Championship

Was this the very pinnacle of modified saloon racing in the UK ? The third season of the bigger-engined extreme special saloons in their own championship. Reigning Champion Gerry Marshall in Baby Bertha once again came out on top against increasingly wild and wonderful opposition in his last full season with the car.
