    Background: BRANDS HATCH, UK

    Belgium's Jacky Ickx secured the World Endurance Motor racing Championship at Brands Hatch, England, on October 17 by winning the 1000 kilometre final event of the season. The race was severely affected by torrential rain. Because of a damaged barrier there was an enforced one-hour stoppage after nine plays, by which time Ickx, along with co-driver Derek Bell of Britain, held a six second lead. After the break Ricardo Patrese of Italy in his Lancia took the lead with Ickx in second place. Despite Patrese crossing the line first, Ickx, who was only 4.7 seconds behind, won the race with his six second lead at the break. The race was reduced to 887 kilometres because of darkness.
