1967 European Formula Two Championship
Previous: none Next: 1968

The 1967 European Formula Two season was the 1st FIA European Formula Two Championship. It commenced on 24 March 1967 and ended on 8 October after ten races. Jacky Ickx won the Championship after winning the last race in Vallelunga, but the most successful driver of the season was Jochen Rindt, who won five Championship races but, as a graded driver, he was ineligible to earn points, so Ickx won the Championship. Other graded drivers, like Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart, also each won races.
