The March 751 was designed by Robin Herd and used during the 1975 Formula One season. The five (or six) examples produced were powered by a Ford Cosworth DFV V8 engine mated to a Hewland transmission. They were used by the Beta Team March, Lavazza March, and Penske Cars teams with drivers including Mark Donohue, Lella Lombardi, Vittorio Brambilla, and Hans-Joachim Stuck.

Lombardi debuted in Formula One in 1974 with a privately entered Brabham supported by the Italian Automobile Club but failed to qualify. In 1975 she was invited to join Vittorio Brambilla and Hans-Joachim Stuck at March and raced the full season. 1975 would prove to be an eventful season for the March Team. Brambilla scored a surprise victory in the rain-shortened 1975 Austrian Grand Prix, while Lombardi scored a Championship point in the Spanish Grand Prix. The race suffered a major tragedy after 25 laps, when the rear wing on Rolf Stommelen's Embassy Hill broke, sending him into the barrier. He bounced off it and back into the road, hitting the barrier across the way and flying over it. While trying to avoid Stommelen as he crossed the track, Carlos Pace crashed. The race continued for another four laps, during which Jochen Mass passed Jacky Ickx for the lead. On lap 29, the race was halted with Mass the winner, Ickx second and Jean-Pierre Jarier crossed the line in third position. Carlos Reutemann finished fourth ahead of Brambilla, while Lombardi finished in sixth. With the race being stopped before three-fourths of the scheduled race distance was reached, only half points were awarded.

As well as being the sole female driver to score points in Formula One (and the only driver with a career total of half a point), she is one of two who qualified for a Formula One race (the other being compatriot Maria Teresa de Filippis).
