Briggs could be viewed as one of the “young lions” of road racing.
His first competition came in 1974 behind the wheel of the same
Lola T332 which carried the Briggs & Fodge Racing colors in
three 1975 Formula 5000 Championship events. Although his
only F/5000 finish in 1975 was 17th at Laguna Seca, John Briggs
foresees a bright future and will foster his Formula One
aspirations by competing in the full 1976 Formula 5000
Championship series. In his first full year of competition, Briggs
captured the San Francisco Region Formula A (5000)
championship with one victory and second-place finish.
