A very interesting entry into the world of F3 racing was the Viking, the car design principals were laid out by team owner Tore John Helle, drawn up by Len Terry and initially built
by CTG in Devon whilst the sponsors were Swedish.
The, for the time, very advanced aerodynamic design, came from Tore John Helle, working with SAAB Aerodynamicists in Sweden and resulted in a very distinctive and dramatic looking car. Following on from some quality issues in the early builds the entire programme was moved from CTG to Sweden. The Viking used several advanced technologies such as radio live transmitted, dynamic measurements and was one of the first F3 designs to use appreciate the importance of aerodynamic development.
just as the cars were showing promise team owner Tore John Helle ran into financial
problems and the team were disbanded although Tore John Helle allowed Ljungfeldt to keep racing his car
and he managed to keep it going for the remainder of the season by
picking up sponsorship here and there.
Terry rechristened one CTG-built car as a Technic and in 1977 it appeared just once and it was later
tested as a CTG (see entries for these manufacturers).
