In 1967, as in 1966 and 1969, the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring was held simultaneously for Formula One and Formula Two cars. Both classes were running together with the common starting field, but with separate classification. Many F2 entries which were not seen in other World Championship races were recorded at Nurburgring. In 1967 one of these F2-only cars was Protos, entered by Ron Harris Racing Team. The car, designed by Frank Costin, featured slippery aerodynamics, a streamlined semi-closed transparent hood in front of the driver’s head (the first time such a design was used in formula cars), and was powered by F2 standard Ford Cosworth FVA 1600 cc engine. The drivers were British Brian Hart, who later became known as the F1 engines designer, and German Kurt Ahrens. Hart finished the race in the last position being not classified in 3 laps behind the winner, while Ahrens retired after 4 laps.
