Formed as 'Tecnokart' by brothers Luciano and Gianfranco Pederzani in 1962, the Italian firm built karts at first before diversifying into larger types of open-wheel racing cars and eventually Formula 1. Tecno arrived on the international stage in 1966 as a manufacturer of Formula 3 cars, which were characterised by a short wheelbase and forward driving position. Within a couple of years the Tecno was the car to beat in Formula 3, achieving 32 victories out of 65 major international races in 1968, while in 1969 Ronnie Peterson, driving a Novamotor-engined example, won 14 races including the prestigious support race at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Tecno's first move away from karts was with a car for Formula 4. The latter was one of the many low-cost formulae dreamt up in the mid-1960s, and catered for cars powered by 250cc production motorcycle engines. Tecno's effort, the K250, usually came with a 250cc Ducati engine installed and we understand that the car offered here was one such. A 500cc Maico engine is currently fitted to the Tecno, which has been in the current owner's hands for the past 12 years. Not run for the past five years, it will require re-commissioning before further use.
