Ian, the elder brother of World Champion Jody, followed his brother to Europe in mid-1972 after winning the domestic Formula Ford series with a Merlyn. After a brief stay, during which he proved his competitiveness, Scheckter returned to South Africa to contest the national championship in a Team Gunston Chevron and attempt to break Dave Charlton's long-held stranglehold on the title.

Ian made his Grand Prix debut at Kyalami in 1974 and had a handful of Formula 1 outings over the next couple of years, but it was only after he had finally clinched the South African championship (by now for Formula Atlantic cars) in 1976 that he took up the offer of a full-time Grand Prix drive with March in 1977.

The season was an utter shambles for the bewildered Scheckter, who managed just two finishes from 13 starts, and his Formula 1 career was buried. He returned home to renew his successful association with Lexington Racing, winning the Atlantic tiles in 1977-78 and 1978-79, before switching to saloon car racing with BMW South Africa's 535L His son Jaki now follows in the family footsteps racing in junior single-seaters.
