Grand Prix, Indy and Formula 1 Cars 1960 - Present

Ernest Hemmingway is quoted as saying, "Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports ... all others are games." (I would also include rugby!) Open wheel racing is the type of racing I think he had in mind. Single seat race cars have always represented the pinnacle of motorsport and the men that posses the skill and daring to drive them fast are rare. In this part of the collection are the Grand Prix, Indy and Formula 1 cars that have helped shape racing history.

Indianapolis 500:

1960 Ken-Paul Special (Indianapolis 500 Winner): Jim Rathmann set fastest lap on his way to victory at the 44th running of the Indy 500 in 1960 in the Watson-Offenhauser powered Ken-Paul Special. The 1960 Indy was an epic battle of a race, which had 29 lead changes, 14 between Rathmann and Rodger Ward in their 2-hour battle for the win. Rathmann commissioned the car from A.J. Watson and the car was prepared for Indianapolis by Chicky Hirashima and the ledgendary Smokey Yunick.

1961 Bowes Seal Fast Special (Indianapolis 500 Winner): A.J. Foyt claimed his fist Indy 500 victory in this Offy-powered Watson roadster built by Floyd Trevis. Foyt had an epic battle for the lead with Eddie Sachs in the later stages of the race. On what was to be his last pit stop, they could not get the full load of fuel in the car. Running on a lighter fuel load, Foyt was pulling away from Sachs, but needed to make a quick stop for more fuel. Sachs took the lead, but he had to pit with three laps to go to replace a rear tire. Foyt took the lead for his first of four Indy 500 victories, averaging 139.01 mph. It was also the first of a record seven victories for chief mechanic George Bignotti.

1960's:

1960 Lotus-Climax 18: John Surtees and Innes Ireland were the Lotus team drivers for the 1960 season with Graham Hill having moved on to BRM. Clark joined the team mid-season as John Surtees departed to race motorcycles on the Isle of Man. Clark proved he was an up and coming champion, keeping his place in the team even after Surtees returned. Clark had his best 1960 F1 finish in this car at the Portugal GP, finishing 3rd.

1960 Cooper-Climax T53 (WORLD CHAMPION) & CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION: The car that continued the revolution toward rear-engine race cars. The team consisted of Bruce McLaren and Jack Brabham. Brabham became the World Champion in 1960 with 5 consecutive wins. Like Lotus, it was powered by a 2.5L Climax engine and outclassed the heavier front-engined competition. Once every Formula car manufacturer began building rear-engined racers, Cooper cars were overtaken by more sophisticated technology.

1960 Cooper-Climax T53: During Cooper's two year reign in F1, Jack Brabham and Bruce McLaren were again the principal factory drivers in the 1960 season. Stirling Moss who had great success in 1959 in the Rob Walker Cooper, jumped to a Walker Lotus for the rest the year. A host of other drivers drove private Cooper's in 1960 including Chuck Daigh, Lance Reventhlow, Ron Flockhart, Roy Salvadori, Tony Brooks and Phil Hill.

1960 Ferrari 246P: Ritchie Ginther drove this car in his F1 debut at the Monoco GP in 1960. He finished in 6th place. 1960 was the last year of the 2.5L engine formula in F1. The 246P was powered by a 2.4L V6 engine which produced 263 bhp. For 1960, Ferrari created their first mid-engine F1 car, but has many teething problems. The shinning moment was Phil Hill's win at the 1960 Italian GP, with Ginther in 2nd place.

1960 Lotus-Climax 18: Introduced for the 1960 season, the 18 was Lotus' first mid-engined car. Powered by the2.5L Coventry Climax four cylinder engine from the Lotus 16, with its light weight and excellent weight distribution and handling , it proved to be the fastest Grand Prix car built up until that time. Successful from the beginning, Stirling Moss drove the Rob Walker entered car to the 18's first F1 victory at the Monaco GP in 1960. Moss would win again at the United States GP and provide Lotus second place in the constructors championship.

1962 Lotus 24: Innes Ireland drove for the UDT Laystall Team in 1962, using the Lotus 24 powered by a Climax V8. Team Lotus also used the conventional space frame designed car until the 25 was ready later in the season. Ireland was third on the grid for the British GP in this car, but gearbox problems prevented his getting off the line at the start and finished 16th.

1962 BRM P57 WORLD CHAMPION & CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION: Graham Hill won the World Drivers Championship and the Constructors Championship for the Owens Racing Organization (BRM) in 1962. Hill won the Championship be besting Jim Clark 4 wins to 3. The 1.5LV* powered BRM also proved to be more reliable than Clark's Lotus, with Hill finishing in the points in more races and two second place finishes just behind Clark at the races end. At Monaco, Hill was not so lucky, finishing in 6th position, but still in the points. This is the Monaco GP car of Hill's from 1962. It is the early 'stack pipe' version of the P57. 1962 would be the high watermark year for BRM in F1 and its only Championship.
Model by SPARK 1/43
1963 BRM P57: Tony Rudd designed the new P57 for BRM, powered by BRM's own 1.5L V8 engine which made 200 hp, The P57 made its first appearance in the 1962 F1 season. The BRM carried Hill to the drivers title and BRM the constructor's title in '62. In 1963, Lotus dominated and Hill could only manage a win in two races, coming second to Clark for the drivers title. This is the winning USGP at Watkins Glen car from 1963.

1962 Lotus 25: The Lotus 25 was a revolutionary Colin Chapman design, being the first fully stressed monocoque chassis to appear in F1. The 25 was powered by a 1.5L Coventry Climax FWMV V8,which produced 195 bhp. Jim Clark narrowly lost an epic battle for the Drivers Championship in 1962 to Graham Hill driving for BRM. BRM proved to be the more reliable car that year. Lotus' tyrn was coming!

1963 Lotus 25: At its peak, the Lotus 25 won 13 races, set 17 pole positions and 13 fastest laps. The 25 gave Jimmy Clark his first Grand Prix victory at Spa, and he won his World Championship in a 25 in 1963 and Lotus the constuctor's title.. This car is the '63 Italian GP winner. The 25 appeared in F1 into the 1965 season in the hands of private teams.

1964 Lotus 25: Jim Clark was unable to repeat as World Champion in 1964, finishing third in the points. He fought a fierce season long battle with Graham Hill driving for BRM and John Surtees driving for Ferrari. The season came down to the final race, with Clark retiring on the final lap, allowing Hill & Surtees to pass him in the points race. This car is the one Clark drove to victory at Spa in the GP of Belgium.

1964 Ferrari 158: John Surtees won the 1964 Italian GP in his championship year in this car. The 158 was powered by a 1.5L V8, which produced 210 hp. Team mates Bandini and Surtees fought it out all year long with the Lotus team of Clark and Hill. The championship came down to the last race and with Bandini's help, Surtees beat Hill for the title and became the first World Champion on both two and four wheels.

1965 Honda RA272: The RA272 replaced the RA271, which ran three races in the 1964 F1 season. Honda further developed the high reving (14,000 rpm) 1.5L 48-valve V12 engine for the 1965 season, where it proved to be fast by qualifying well and leading races, but still unreliable. Honda had brought on Richie Ginther to team with Ronnie Bucknum in 1965. Ginther was a good development driver and was able to coax the maximum from the engine and chassis. He finished first at the 1965 Mexican GP, leading start to finish.
Model by EBBRO 1/43
1965 Lotus 33 Climax (WORLD CHAMPION) & (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): The Lotus 33 was an improvement on the 25 chassis. The suspension was also modifies to accept wider tires introduced in the 1965 F1 season. The 1.5L Climax V8 was tuned to produce an additional 20 bhp, to bring the total to 220 bhp. Jim Clark won six races during the '65 season, setting fastest lap in all of them and starting from the pole position in five. He won the World Drivers Championship and Lotus the Constructors Championship.
Model by RBA 1/43
1966 Honda RA273: Ritchie Ginther was back to drive for Honad in 1966, along with Ronnie Bucknum. Honda had enlarged the 1.5L V12 engine to meet the new 3.0L regulation and proved to have a powerful engine stuck in a heavy chassis. The new engine was not ready until the Italian GP and Ginther, who was a great development driver, was injured in a crash there due to tire failure. He came back for the last races and finished a solid fourth at the Mexican GP he had won the year before. Honda dveleoped a new engine and chassis for 1967.

The 3.0L Cars:

1966 BRM P261: BRM P261s won six World Championship races, in the hands of works drivers Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart, and finished second in both the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship standings in 1964 and 1965. Stewart won the Tasman Series championship in 1966, with Hill second. For the 1966 F1 season, the V8 BRM 2.0L engine used in that series, was increased to 3.0L. Jackie Stewart won at Monaco in this car, but as the season developed, the car was not as competitive as cars that had engines designed for the new 3.)L regulation such as Brabham. The P261 was the most successful BRM.
Model by SPARK 1/43
1966 Brabham Repco BT20 (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): The BT20 was powered by a Repco aluminum 3.0L V8, the BT20 only produced around 285 bhp and used a Hewland 5-speed gear box. It was however light and reliable making Jack Brabham the first driver to win a GP in a car bearing his name, Brabham won the World Drivers and Constructors Championships in 1966. This is the British GP car that Denny Hulme was the runner-up to Brabham as they finish 1-2. Brabham won the French, British, Dutch and German GP's in 1966.

1966 McLaren M2B: Designed by Robin Herd, and Gordon Coppuckthe McLaren's M2B was the first of McLaren's Formula One cars. The car suffered performance due to the weight of the 3.0L Ford Indy engine it was designed for, or the Serenissima 3.0L V8 engine used while the Ford engine was being further developed; of the four GP races it contested in 1966, Bruce McLaren finished 6th at the British Grand Prix, scoring the team its first F1 points. This is the car that ran that race and it used the Serenissima supplied M166 engine which produced 260 bhp. The car was painted in this color scheme for its staring role in the movie Grand Prix and Bruce McLarens helmet is the same as that of the main character. This was the start of a great F1 team that is a force in F1 to this day.

1966 Lola-Ford T90 (Indianapolis 500 Winner): The Lola T90 was designed to accept either the 2.8L, 4-cylinder supercharged Offenhauser engine or the 4.2-litre 4-cam Ford V8. John Mecom entered three T90's at Indy in 1966 using both types of engines. Roger Ward drove the Offenhauser powered car and Rookies Jackie Stewart and Graham Hill both drove Ford powered entries. The three cars qualified at just under 160 mph and were grided 11th (Stewart), 13th (Ward) and 15th (Hill). On 25 miles to go, Hill passed Clark for second and when Stewart went out with no oil pressure,Hill took over first place for the 1966 Indy 500 win.

1966 Lola-Ford T90: Jackie Stewart drove John Mecom's entry at Indy in 1966, which was the 50th Anniversary of the first running of the race. Starting from the middle of the fourth row, Stewart made his way to the front of the pack and was leading when his oil pressure dropped with ten laps to go, Stewart parking the car and finishing 6th (only 7 of 33 cars finished the race.) Despite his DNF, Stewart was awarded Rookie of the Year honors

1967 Coyote-Ford (Indianapolis 500 Winner): AJ Foyt drove his Sheratan Thompson Special to victory at Indy in 1967. The race was dominated by Parnelli Jones in the STP turbine car, with Jones leading 171 of the 200 laps. However, three laps from the end, the turbine car broke and Foyt inherited the lead, weaving his way through a pileup on the final lap, to win his third Indy 500 victory.
Model by SPARK 1/43
1968 Eagle Mk4-Offy (Indianapolis 500 Winner): Bobby Unser won the 1968 Indy 500, a race which for the second year in a row Andy Granatelli's STP Turbine led late in the race, but once again failed to finish. Unser actually led most of the race 127 laps in his Offy powered Eagle and took the lead for good on the 191st lap, to win his first of three Indy 500's.

1967 Lotus 33/43: For the 1966 season, the engine formula was increased to 3.0L. Lotus did not have an engine and passed up Repco for a unproven H16 unit from BRM. The engine proved too heavy and made the car which was derived from the 33 and the 38 largely uncompetitive. Clark won the USGP in 1966 and Graham Hill drove an exceptional race to place 2nd at Monoco, the last race for this car before the introduction of the 49 and its Cosworth DFV engine. A new era had begun.

1967 Cooper-Maseratti T81: The T81 was powered by Maserati Tipo 9 V12 engines of 3.0-litres. These were supplied by the Chipstead Group, Maserati's UK distributors, who had taken control of Cooper the previous April. Jo Siffert drove for Rob Walker, a long-time private customer and entrant of Cooper F1 cars. The best they could manage was two fourth place finishes and the factory cars only one win at S. Africa. The cars were just too heavy and slow in face of cars like the Lotus 49.

1968 Matra MS10: Ken Tyrrell entered cars under the Equipe Matra International banner for Jackie Stewart, as he had done in 1966 & 67 using a Matra chassis. For the 1968 F1 season, the Matra factory entered a V12 Matra-engined MS11 while Tyrrell ran Stewart in a Ford-engined MS10 with greater success. Stewart won the German GP in this car and he would rise to the top in 1969, becoming World Champion. By 1970 Tyrell was no longer able to use a Matra chassis and the next chapter begins.

1967 Brabham Repco BT24: Denny Hulme and Jack Brabham contested the 1967 World Championship down to the last race, with Hulme taking the Championship by three points and Brabham's second consecutive Constructor's Championship. This is the car in which he won the German GP. The greater reliability of the Brabham with its Repco V8 proved to be the difference in winning the 1967 Championships, when compared with the faster but breakdown prone Lotus 49.

1967 Eagle-Weslake T1G: Bruce McLaren drove for Dan Gurney's Anglo American Racers team in the '67 French GP at the new Bugatti circuit at Le Mans, his new car not being ready. He put the Eagle on the second row, but retired due to electrical problems. The Eagle, powered by a Weslake V12 engine producing 370 hp, was always fast in qualifying, but the cars suffered from engine reliability. Gurney won the Belgian GP in an Eagle, but that was the high point of these lovely F1 cars. AAR quit F1 in 1968.
Model by SPARK 1/43
1967 Eagle-Weslake T1G: Designed by Len Terry for the start of the 1966 F1 season, the Eagle T1G or Mark 1 initially had a 2.7L Coventry Climax inline 4-cylinder engine before the 3.0L Gurney Weslake engine was developed. Despite excellent qualifying results, the cars could only manage to finish two races in 1967, both podium finishes. Dan Gurney drove this car to victory at the Grand Prix of Belgium. That win in Belgium still stands as the only Formula One victory for a USA-built car.

1967 Olsonite-Eagle MkIV: All-American Racers built seven Eagles for the 1967 USAC Champ Car season with the main aim being success at Indy. In conjunction with Weslake using a production Ford engine (302 cu in V8) as the basis, the cars were plagued with engine reliability issues. For the last race of the season at Riverside,they used newly designed MkIV heads and Gurney took 1st place at the Rex Mays 300. This was also the first AAR partnership with Olsonite as a sponsor.

1967 Lotus 49: Graham Hill set held the pole position at the 1967 USGP, with teammate Jim Clark in 2nd position. Clark overtook Hill (who was having gear trouble) for the lead on lap 41. Hill hung on to 2nd place and almost beat Clark who was having suspension trouble. Hill proved in the 1967 season that on any given day he could be the equal to his teammate. Reliability in the 1967 season hampered the championship chances of both men that year, but 1968 would be Hill's year.

1967 Lotus 49: Powered by a 3.0L Ford-Cosworth DFV V8, the 49 was the evolution of the successful Lotus 33 and the first car to use the engine as a stressed chassis member. This is the private entry of the Rob Walker team, with Jo Siffert driving. They would have a modest season, but Siffert provided Walker his final F1 win at the 1968 British GP in a 49B. One of the best Porsche 917 drivers, "Seppi" was sadly killed at Brands Hatch in a BRM in 1971.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43
1967 Lotus 49: This is the car that Clark drove to victory at the '67 USGP at Watkins Glen, with Hill second. This 1-2 finish at the USGP in front of Ford brass was a great victory for Lotus and assured their preferential treatment in receiving the latest Cosworth engines. Sadly, Clark would lose his life in a racing accident early in the 1968 season. Jimmy Clark was World Champion driving for Lotus in 1963 & 65, certainly one of the best drivers ever.

Turbines and Sprouting Wings:

1967 STP-Paxton Turbocar: Designed by Ken Wallis as the STP entry for the Indianapolis 500 in 1967,using his plan for harnessing a gas turbine to a race car. Putting the Pratt & Whitney Canada ST6B-62 turbine engine on the drivers left in a mid-chassis configuration created a better weight distribution. Parnelli Jones was enlisted to drive at Indy and lead the 151 laps of the race before 3 laps from the finish, while in the lead, a failed transmission bearing ended its race. It was entered again in 1968 with Joe Leonard driving, but crashed in qualifying and never raced again. The power from the turbine engine (550 hp) drove a Ferguson 4-wheel drive system, which transmitted the power through a single speed transmission whose torque converter eliminated the need for a clutch pedal and gearshift. USAC later banned turbine powered cars and four-wheel drive, thereby eliminating these innovations after Indy in 1968.
Model by SPARK 1/43
1968 Lotus 56 Turbine: Graham Hill drove this Pratt & Whitney turbine powered car at Indianapolis in 1968. The turbine engine produced 500 bhp and powered all four wheels via a Ferguson four wheel drive system. Hill crashed on Lap 110, finishing 19th. Joe Leonard was Hill's team mate that year and he put his car on the pole, with Hil right beside him. Leonard retired a few laps from the end while leading the race, due to pump shaft failure. It was the last time a turbine and a four wheel drive car ran at Indy.

1968 Lotus 49B: At the '68 USGP, Mario Andretti gave everyone a surprise when he put his Lotus on pole position, ahead of Jackie Stewart's Matra. There was hope that he would be able to beat the F1 regulars. On lap 14 Andretti's Lotus was dragging part of the bodywork and he was forced to pit and dropped to the tail of the field. He began to fight back but eventually retired with clutch failure.Gold Leaf was the first commercial Formula 1 sponsor in 1968

1968 Lotus 49B: Graham Hill was 2nd on the grid next to Clark at the start of the '68 S. Africa GP. Holding off the competition, they began the '68 season as they had finished the prior season a 1-2 finish (Clark/Hill). It would be Clark's last F1 race before his death in April. With team leader Clark dead, Hill approached his 40th birthday by carrying the shattered Lotus team through its darkest days, and that year he won his second title against strong opposition from his former BRM teammate, Jackie Stewart.

1968 LDS-Repco Mk3B: Team Gunston was owned by South African John Love and from 1962-1975 he entered cars in the S. Africa GP round of the Worlds Championship. In1968, he entered a LDS Mk3 for himself and for Sam Tingle. Love finished 9th and Tingle in this car retired due to overheating. The LDS cars were built for the S. African Formula One Championship by Louis Douglas Serrurier. The Mk3B was based on the Brabham BT11 and was powered by the 3.0L aluminum block Repco V8. Love won the S. African F1 Championship series six times.

1968 McLaren M7A: Denny Hulme won the 1968 Italian GP at Monza driving this M7A, in what was an exciting race with Hulme holding on to victory. 1968 saw the first win in Formula One for McLaren Motor Racing . McLaren finished second in the Constructors Championship and Hulme third in the Drivers Championship in the 1968 season. The M7A was powered by a 3.0L Cosworth DFV V8 engine after Lotus lost its exclusive righ to use the engine.

1969 Lotus 49B: Graham Hill won the Drivers Championship and Lotus the Constructors Championship in 1968 and for the '69 season Hill sported the coveted #1 on his car. Unfortunately, this was not Lotus' season, winning only two races, yielding to Jackie Stweart and Matra. Graham Hill did manage a win at Monoco, which is always an impressive victory in any season.

1969 Lotus 49B: The death of Jim Clark in '68 left a hole in the Lotus team. For a time Jackie Oliver occupied the second car behind Hill. He finished 5th in this car at the Belgium GP. Jochen Rindt finished the season with a win in his first drive for Lotus at the United States GP. He would go on to win the Drivers title in 1970, regrettably, posthumously. Tough times in F1.

1969 Brawner Hawk MkIII (Indianapolis 500 Winner): Clint Brawner who has campainged a car at Indy every year since 1953, finally took the win in 1969 with Mario Andretti behind the wheel of the Brawner Hawk MkIII. The fiurst Hawk was built in 1965 and was the first rear engine design for Brawner and that car took Mario to 3rd place and Rookie of the Year honors. In 1968, Andretti took Indy pole position in the Hawk MkII, but Brawner lost his sponsor and sold the team to Andy Granatelli in 1969. Andretti and Granatelli were originally going to run a Lotus at Indy, but Lotus unreliability and an Andretti crash pushed the Hawk into service. Andretti led 116 of the 200 laps in the rugged and reliable Ford DOHC turbo powered car.

1969 Matra MS80: The Matra MS80 powered by the Ford Cosworth DFV (3.0L, estimated at around 420 bhp) that took Jackie Stewart to the Formula One World Championship title in 1969. Stewart drove this car to victory at the Dutch GP. Only two MS80's were assembled in 1969, a third monocoque was built but remained un-assembled. Francois Cevert would join Tyrrell full-time in 1970 and soon prove to be Stewart's equal.

1969 Matra MS80: Jackie Stewart had won four of the first five races of the 1`969 F1 season. He was favored to win the British GP at Silverstone, until he had a heavy crash in Saturday practice. He took over team mate Beltoise's car for the race and was second on the grid. He had a race-long head to tail battle with Jochen Rindt in the Lotus 49B, until Rindt had to pit for loose end plates on his cars wings and fuel towards the end of the race. Stewart went on to win with Jacky Ickx driving for Brabham in second and Bruce McLaren driving a McLaren in 3rd. For the British GP, the MS80 was run without any rear wings (high or low) for extra downforce.

1969 Matra MS80: Jean-Piere Beltoise was recruited by Ken Tyrrell to drive as team mate to Jackie Stewart fot Matra International in the 1969 F1 season. Beltoise posted three podium finishes that year, his best finish 2nd place at the French GP. This car was raced at the Spanish GP in 1969, which was the second race of the season and the cars still sported tall rear wings. Beltoise finished 3rd.

1970's:

1970 Ferrari 312B: Ferrari developed a new 3.0L flat-12 engine for 1970, which produced 445 bhp and powered the new 312B. This horizontal "boxer" layout allowed for a very low center of gravity while allowing a clear airflow beneath the rear wing. Clay Regazoni and Jackie Ickx were the teams main drivers, Ickx had six posium finishes including three wins, finishing second place in the drivers championship.

1970 Lotus 72C WORLD CHAMPION & CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION: Lotus introduced the 72 midway through the 1970 F1 season, the 72 was an improvement on the 49. Immediately successful, the 72C won its first race and three more in succession with Jochen Rindt. This is thew winning car from the French GP. Tragically, Rindt was killed at Monza and became the first and only posthumous World Champion.

1970 DeTomaso 505/38 Ford: Only finishing two races, the De Tomaso designed by Gian Paolo Dallara was important in that it helped propel Frank Williams into becoming a constructor in F1. Sadly, Piers Courage was killed at the Dutch Grand Prix in an accident that saw his 505-38 flip and catch fire. The loss deeply upset Williams; the distance the team principal now places between himself and his drivers has been attributed to this event.

1970 Brabham BT33: The BT33 was a new car for Brabham in 1970, using a Ron Tauranac designed semi-monocoque chassis and 3.0L Cosworth V8 power. The team started out on a high note, winning S. Africa, but the rest of the season was a disaster. It was Sir Jack's final season in F1 and not the way the three time World Champion wanted to retire. This is Brabham's BT33 as it ran at South Africa for its only win and Black Jack's last.

1971 McLaren Ford M19A: Successful at Indianapolis and in the CanAm and Trans Am racing series, Roger Penske turned his attention to F1. He hired the second McLaren team car for the Canadian and United States Grand Prix in 1971. Painted in sponsor Sunoco colors and driven by Penske driver and friend Mark Donohue, the M19A was to be the jumping off point for Penske in F1 racing and ultimately building his own F1 cars. The M19A was developed in the wake of the disastorous 1970 season with the M14. The 1971 season proved to be little better, although the Cosworth Ford powered M19 was fast, it was fragile. Donohue finished 3rd in this car at the Candian GP in 1971. At the USGP, David Hobbs brought the car home in 10th position.

1971 McLaren M16 Offenhauser: Deny Hulme piloted this M16 in the 1971 Indy 500, where he quaified 4th behind Mark Donohue in the Penske McLaren entry and Peter Revson in the other McLaren team car.Revson set the fastest qualifying lap, putting the McLaren on pole for the race. With Revson and Donohue already out, Hulme retired on lap 134 due to a blown engine, allowing Al Unser in an Eagle to cruise to victory. M16 variants won Indy with Johnny Rutherford at the wheel in 1974 and 1976, giving the M16 chassis three wins at Indy.

1972 McLaren M16B Offenhauser (Indianapolis 500 Winner): The McLaren M16 is one of the most successful cars at Indy, scoring three victories and the M16 was competitive at the Brickyard up until the early 80's. This is Mark Donohue's Penske M16C in which Donohue was the 1972 Indy Winner. The M16 revolutionized Indy car design incorporating wings and down force. The M16 led to the design an development of the McLaren M23 which won two F1 championships. Powered by a turbo-charged Offy straight four engine of 2.7L, the M16 produced 750 bhp. Donohue qualified the car 3rd at 191.4 mph and had a race average speed of 162.96 mph. Donohue led the final 13 laps of the race and scored his first Indy 500 victory and also the first victory for car owner Roger Penske.

1971 Ferrari 312B2: For 1971 the cars were modified and re-designated 312B2 and used through 1972. New slightly more wedge shaped bodywork and a reconfigured rear suspension were the main changes. This car was driven by Jackie Ickx to victory at the 1971 Dutch GP. Despite setting several pole positions, the team could not overcome the dominant Tyrrell Fords.

Team Tyrrell:

1970 Tyrrell-Ford 001: In its design the first Tyrrell very much resembled the Matra MS80 used the year before, with its obvious coke-bottle shaped monocoque chassis. The most distinctive feature of the 001 was the hammerhead style front wing, which covered the radiator intake. Tyrrell was forced to develop his own chassis when Matra refused to allow the use of the Ford-Cosworth DFV engine. The 001 was introduced mid-way through the 1970 season. It proved to be qucik from its first race, but relaibility was a factor. Jackie Stewart drove this car at the USGP at Watkins Glen, retiring from the race after having qualified 2nd.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43
1971 Tyrrell-Ford 002: Francois Cevert was a very capable 2nd to teammate Jackie Stewart in 1971. Cevert pushed Stewart and often with less able equipment. At Monaco in 1971, Cevert struggled with an engine problem which eventually caused him to hit a barrier and retire after damaging the suspension. He contributed to the Tyrrell Constructors Championship in 1971 with two seconds and a win at the USGP at Watkins Glen. Tragically, he would be killed while qualifying for the USGP in 1973. Stewart did not race and the withdrawal of the team cost Tyrrell the Constructors Championship in 1972.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43
1971 Tyrrell-Ford 003 (WORLD CHAMPION) & CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION: Matra's sale to Simca in 1970 and the contractual inability to use the Ford Cosworth DFV engine in Matra under new ownership caused Ken Tyrrell to develop his own cars. The Tyrrell 001 was troduced in 1971, quickly followed by the 002 and 003. Jackie Stewart drove this car to a win at Monaco in 1971, on his way to the World Championship and Constructors Championship for Tyrrell.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43

1972 Tyrrell-Ford 003: This is Jackie Stewart's Ford-Cosworth DFV powered 1972 French GP winning car. The Tyrrell 003 won its first race in Spain and the Scotsman went on to five further victories to win his second World Championship in 1971 and Tyrrell took its first Constructors' title. Things were more difficult in 1972 with Lotus a much stronger rival and despite four wins, Stewart finished runner-up to Emerson Fittipaldi. In 1973, however, Stewart won another five victories to win his third title with the Tyrrell 005.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43
1972 Tyrrell-Ford 004: F2 star Patrick Depailler who was sponsored by French petrol giant ELF, was given a drive for the Tyrrell team in the Frech GP in 1972. He would also have another shot in 1972, finishing 7th at the USGP. It was Depailler's first F1 race. Not the most spectacular start, as he failed to finish and was not classified at the end of the race, yet he impressed Ken Tyrrell enough to secure a full time drive with the team in 1974 after Jackie Stewart's retirement.
Model by QUARTZO 1/43
1973 Tyrrell-Ford 006 (WORLD CHAMPION): Jackie Stewart won the World Drivers Championship with the 006 (a slightly reworked version of the 005) in 1973. Teamed with protégé François Cevert, Stewart scored five victories in the 1973 season and Cevert was the runner-up on six occassions. Tyrrell was poised to win the Constructors Championship, However, at the final race at Watkins Glen, Cevert was killed and the team withdrew; giving that championship to Lotus. Stewart retired from driving at the end of the season.

Team Lotus:

1972 Lotus 72D (WORLD CHAMPION) & (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): The remarkable Lotus 72D, Fittipaldi proved virtually unstoppable in 1972 as he won five of 11 races and the F1 Drivers' Championship and Lotus the Constructors' Championship. Fittipaldi became the youngest F1 champion and held that title until Lewis Hamilton took the F1 title in 2008. Fittipaldi was teamed with Dave Walker much of the 1972 season.

1973 Lotus 72D (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): Emerson Fittipaldi's winning Lotus 72D at the Argentina GP to start the '73 season. The 72D was replaced by the E part way through the season. Fittipaldi would give way to Jackie Stewart for the World Championship of Drivers, finishing 2nd, with new teammate Ronnie Petersen 3rd in points. Lotus would reclaim the Manufacturers title.

1973 Lotus 72E (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): Ronnie Petersen teamed with Fittipaldi for the 1973 season and Petersen proceeded to win four races to Emmo's three. Early season relaibility cost Fittipaldi the Championship, but Lotus did win the Constructos Championship on the results of both drivers Powered by the 3.0L Ford-Cosworth V8, The 72 participated in 6 seasons and 74 World Championship races, with a record of 20 Grand Prix wins, 2 Drivers Championships and 3 Constructors Championship titles.

1973 Lotus 74 F2: Emmerson Fittapaldi 1973 Lotus 74 F2: Lotus campaigned F2 specification cars for Emerson Fittapaldi and Ronnie Petersen at F1 support races during the 1973 season. The cars were powered by a 2.0L Ford BDA/Lotus Novamotor. Unfortunately the cars were down on power (only 240 bhp vs. 270 bhp advertised) when they did run, but engine problems usually resulted in a quick exit in the seven races run. Hard to imagine a current day F1 driver running a support race.

1970 Lotus 69: Like many F1 drivers of the day, Graham Hill raced in the Formula 2 races when it fit their schedules. Hill raced this Lotus 69 in 1970 for Jochen Rindt racing at the Paul Richard circuit in France. He finished 5th after having started way back on the grid in 26th! Lotus Components built the 69 in 1970-71 for customers, making both Formula Ford and Formula 3 variants besides the F2 car. F2 regulations allowed 1.6L cars, and Lotus used a 4-cyl. Cosworth FVA, 16 valve negine, which produced 220 bhp. Formula 1 drivers were not allowed to compete for championship points in F2, even though they usually dominated the podium.

1971 Lotus 69 Special: Pete Lovely raced in 11 F1 events, primarily as a private entrant in a Lotus 49B and in 1971, in this car, a Lotus 69 Special. Using a Lotus 69 F2 car chassis, Lovely installed a 3.0L Ford-Cosworth DFV engine. He entered the Canadian and USGP, but was not classified at the finish of either event. I have seen Lovely race this car many times in SCCA and vintage events. Always a fan favorite, he was quite fast! Usually starting at the back of the grid and lapping everyone else to take the checkered flaq. Pete always hauled this car on a drop-side VW Pickup!

1971 March 711: March Engineering's founders were Max Mosley, Alan Rees, Graham Coaker and Robin Herd. They had Frank Costin design the 711 for the 1971 F1 season, powered by the Cosworth DFV V8 engine. Ronnie Petersen had enough successs to finish 2nd in the Drivers Championship. Niki Lauda, driving for March in F2, he bought his way into a seat for his home Austrian GP in this car, but failed to finish. A modest start for one who would become one of F1's all-time greats!

1971 BRM P160: The P160 was introduced for the 1971 F1 season and variants of the car were used by BRM in F1 through the 1974 season. Powered by a 3.0L BRM V12, the P160 suffered from reliabilty problems and poor finishes, but Jo Siffert won the Austrian GP in this car and was second at the USGP. The P160 seemed ill-fated. Pedro Rodriguez started the season as Siffert's teammate, but was killed in a sports car race during the season. Siffert had five other teammates during the season, including Howden Ganley, Vic Elford Helmut Marko and Peter Gethin; who won the Italian GP. Sadly, Siffert was killed at a non-Championship race in a P160 late in the 1971 season.

Indy Eagles:

1972 AAR Eagle 72: The Eagle 72 was the fastest Indy car of 1972, and also the most popular customer Indy car of its era. Bobby Unser placed his Eagle (Ch. #7203) on the Pole at the 1972 Indy 500, with a qualifying speed of 195.94 MPH and hit 200 MPH during qualifying. Both Indy records! Unser failed to finish the 500 due to a failed ignition rotor, finishing 30th. Powered by an AAR engineered Drake-Offy 2.6L turbo engine, which would be developed to produce 1100 hp, the Eagle 72 dominated Indy car racing in 1972 & 1973. It brought a new era of aerodynamics to Indy car racing with its innovative design.

1973 AAR Eagle 72 (Indianapolis 500 Winner): Gordon Johncock won the 1973 Indy 500 for STP/Patrick Racing in this AAR Eagle 72 (Ch. #7217). The 1973 Indy was a rain delayed, accident marred and tragic event. A major accident at the start caused the race to be postponed, and then rain delayed the race until it was finally run two days later. After the start, a major crash which eventually would take the life of Johncock's teammate Swede Savage on lap 58 was followed by a pit crew member on the STP/Patrick team being killed by an emergency vehicle racing through the pits. Mercifully, rain halted the race on Lap 133, with Johncock, who had led the most laps and was leading, was declared the winner. Johncock would win Indy again in 1982 under much happier circumstances.

1975 AAR Eagle 74 (Indianapolis 500 Winner): Bobby Unser took the second of his three Indy 500 wins at Indy in 1975, piloting the Jorgensen -Eagle 74. Dan Gurney, who finished second as a driver himself twice at Indy, won his first and only Indy 500 as an owner. On lap 174, just 26 laps from the finish of the '75 Indy 500, after a long yellow caution brought out by a major accident ton Lap 170; the skies opened up and the race was eventually red flagged and Unser pronounced the winner. He was having a fierce race with Johhny Rutherford and AJ Foyt at that point, who would have one had the race gone the distance is great for speculation. Unser won his third Indy 500 in 1981.

1973 Surtees TS14: The TS14 made its debut at the end of the 1972 season. For 1973,the car was upgraded to the TS14A and motorcycle racing great Mike Hailwood was joined by Carlos Pace and Jochen Mass(two races). Despite its Cosworth DFV engine, the TS14 was not a reliable car and the drivers had 21 retirements between them. The team only managed to have both cars running at the end of a race twice and the best finish for the team was Pace's third place at the Austrian GP. This is Mike Hailwood's car run at the 1973 Monoco GP, where he finished 8th.

1973 McLaren M23: 1973 was the first F1 season for the M23, with variants competing in F1 over five seasons where it would win 16 Grand Prix, two drivers' and one constructors' world championships. Denny Hulme set pole in the very first race for the 3.0L V8 Ford Cosworth powered M23 and won the Sweden GP in this car. Hulme finished 6th in the Drivers Championship and both Hulme and teammate Peter Revson placed McLaren 3rd in the Constructors Championship in 1973.

During the season he impressed Ferrari and both drivers joined them for the 1974 season as BRM's star was fading. The P160 went through several variations trying to recapture the success of 1971. The chassis was good, but the BRM V-12 was no longer keeping pace with the competition. In two years he would be champion! Lauda placed 5th at Belgium in this car.

1974 Lola T370: Graham Hill left Brabham in 1972 and started his own team, Embassy Hill, using Shadow chassis for the 1973 season; and then the Lola T370 for 1974 before their own chassis was ready for 1975. Hill had his best finish for the 1974 season in this car at the Swedish GP, finish 6th after starting 15th. 1974 was to be Hill's final full season in F1 after a long and spectacular career. He quit to take on full-time team ownership duties in 1975 , but sadly was killed in a plane crash in 1976 before the team could show its full potential.

1974 Lotus 76: The Lotus 76 was a unusual step in the wrong direction for Team Lotus. Intended to replace the 72, the 76 which used the Cosworth DFV engine and had modified aerodynamics, a lighter chassis, longer wheelbase and a narrower, lower monocoque. Initially it also had a "bi-plane" rear wing. Rather than being a more advanced version of the 72, the car was discarded in favor of the older 72 after three races due to poor handling, gaerbox and electronic problems. For the German GP, the revised 76B was entered and Ronnie Petersen finished 4th in this car. It was the only race the 76 finished and it was abandoned at the end of the season.

1974 312B3: Ferrari hired Niki Lauda and Clay Regazzoni from BRM to help rebuild their struggling F1 team after Ickx's departure. The 312B3 held promise with Lauda on pole 9 times, but poor handling resulted in only 3 wins between the two drivers. Regazzoni winning one race, and finishing on the podium enough times, was tied for the championship with Fittipaldi going into the last race. Handling gremlins in that race (USGP) caused Regazzoni to lose the championship by only 3 points.

1975 312T: The 312T is powered by a 3000cc Flat-12 producing 510bhp. The T in the name stood for 'transverse', as the gearbox was mounted in this way, improving the car's handling characteristics, helped by the lightweight aluminium monocoque chassis. Lauda was able to overcome life threatening burns suffered in a 1976 crash, where he not only came back that season to narrowly lose the championship, but to dominate F1 in 1977.

1975 Hesketh 308C: The 308C chassis was used by Hesketh in the late part of the 1975 season at Itallian and USA GP's. Driven by James Hunt, the 308C was a continuation of the 308B which had given Hunt his first GP victory at the Dutch GP in 1975. The 308 chassis was introduced as a replacement for the March chassis the team had been using prior to 1974. Designed by Harvey Postlethwaite, the car was powered by a3.0L Ford-Cosworth DFV engine. The car was competitive but unreliable. The team folded up at the end of the 1975 season, as Lord Hesketh could not afford to keep financing his unsponsored team, and Hunt moved to McLaren for 1976. The rest as they say, is history.

1976 March 761: During the 1976 F1 season, four teams used the 761, with March Engineering fielding an entry for Ronnie Peterson. Beta was the other noteable team that fielded a 761, driven by Vittorio Brambila. Using the 3.0L Cosworth-Ford DFV engine, the cars were fast, always qualifying near the front, but highly unreliable. However, when they held together they were formidible. Ronnie Petersen won the Italian GP, which rewarded his perserverence with the team. Petersen moved on to Tyrrell in 1977, with a couple of independent teams trying to field 761's without success.

1976 Brabham Alfa-Romeo BT45A: The Gordon Murray designed BT45 was the first Brabham to use the 500 hp Alfa Romeo flat 12-cylinder engine, an engine layout which had been quite successful for Ferrari. The team drivers for the 1976 season were Carlos Pace and Carlos Reutemann. The team suffered engine reliability problems throughout the season and the best they could do was three fourth place finishes. Variations of the BT45 appeared over the next two seasons with better luck as the engine was sorted out. John Watson and Hans-Joachim Stuck captured three podium finishes in 1977, with Niki Lauda finishing 2nd and 3rd at the start of the 1978 season before the BT45 was retired.

1976 Surtees TS19: The TS19 was a Cosworth-Ford powered F1 car used by Team Surtees during the 1976, 77 & 78 F1 seasons. For 1976, the team had regular drivers Brett Lunger and future World Champion Alan Jones. The team struggled at the back of the grid, the best finish being Jones' 4th place finish in this car at the controversial rain soaked Japan GP, where Niki Lauda basically handed the Championship to James Hunt when he refused to race in the dangerous conditions. The Durex condoms sponsorship of Jones' car was also highly controversial for the time. At the Japan GP, the car would also be sponsored by Teddy Yip, who would enter F1 as a team owner in 1977.

1976 McLaren M23C (WORLD CHAMPION): Powered by the venerable Ford-Cosworth DFV 3.0L engine, the M23 was first introduced for the 1973 F1 season and was developed from the McLaren M16 Indy car. Emerson Fittipaldi played a big part in the cars development, winning the Drivers Championship in 1974. During the 1976 season, James Hunt had his epic battle with Niki Lauda for the Drivers Champoinship, with Hunt scoring one point more than Lauda to take the title, albeit among a great deal of controversy.

1976-77 McLaren M23C: Problems with development of the M26 required McLaren to use the M23 in the first part of the 1977 F1 season. The best James Hunt could do was a second in Brazil. Things would get better at McLaren as they developed the M26 which could clearly keep up with Ferrari. Hunt would win three races in the later half of the season with the M26. He was unable to regain his championship form from the year before, critics saying he no longer had the fight in him. I think his racing talent peaked at the same time the M23 did.

1977 McLaren M26: The M26 replaced the M23 in mid-season 1977, powered by the 3.0L Ford-Cosworth DFV V8 engine and producing 485 hp. Unfortunately, it was too little too late for McLaren. Reliability and accidents took their toll among flashes of former brilliance. McLaren finished third in the constructors championship, just behind Lotus, but Ferrari dominated the season.. A young Giles Villenueve started his F1 career with McLaren in 1977. James Hunt drove one more year for McLaren in 1978, but there were no wins and it would be his last full season before retiring from F1.

1976 Lotus 77: Like the Lotus 74 which preceded it, the Lotus 77 offered featured improved aerodynamics and repositioned radiators to aid better cooling than its predecessor and the now obsolete Lotus 72. Ronnie Petersen left Lotus for March after the first race, leaving Mario Andretti to do most of the development work. After a slow start for the 1976 F1 season, the 77 gradually became better, but a long ways from Ferrari, McLaren and Tyrrell that season. After retiring at Brazil in this car, Andretti managed two third place finishes at the Dutch and Canadian GP's. He finished the 1976 season winning the rain soaked Japan GP. The Lotus 78 would bring the Lotus back to prominence the following season.

1977 Tyrrell P34B: The Tyrrell P34, otherwise known as the "six-wheeler", was designed by Derek Gardner and powered by the 3.0L Ford-Cosworth DFV. The unique feature of the P34, was the use of four 10" diameter wheels at the front to lessen the lift caused by two larger front wheels, thereby improving frontal downforce. Ronnie Petersen and Patrick Depailler were the Tyrrell tem drivers in 1977. After the car proved itself to be competitive in the previous season, they struggled with tire, engine and brake overheating issues. Ronnie Petersen drove this car in the 1977 Brazilian GP. He was unable to avoid catch fencing thrown out on the track when another car spun on lap 13, and his race ended.

1977 Tyrrell P34B: The P34B was wider and heavier than the P34,and while still promising, was not as competitive as the year before. Much of the lack of success was mostly due to Goodyear's failure to properly develop the small front tyres. That is what had lead Jody Scheckter to leave Tyrrell for Wolf at the end of the 1976 season. Ronnie Petersen was an established F1 star, but the P34 did not match his driving style as he could not see the front wheels to place himself in corners. At the Belgian GP, he showed his driving talents and mastery of even the Tyrrell. In the rain soaked race at Zolder, Petersen held off some of the best talent in F1 to finish 3rd. Because of a lack of tire development, the P34 project ended with the 1977 season.

1978 Tyrrell 008: Tyrrell replaced the six-wheel P34 with this chassis for the `1978 season. Patrick Depaillier took his first F1 victory at Monaco and had a second place finish in the season opening South African GP and second place in the Austrian GP. Two third palace finished during the season earned him 4th place in the Drivers Championship. The 008 was powered by a 3.0L DFV Cosworth Ford, which produced 485 bhp.

Ground Effects Era:

1978 Brabham BT46B: Designed by Gordon Murray for the Brabham team, then owned by current FI supremo Bernie Ecclestone for the 1978 season, the BT46 used a flat-12 Alfa Romeo engine. The BT46B known as the "fan car" generated an immense level of downforce by means of a fan, claimed to be for increased cooling, but which also extracted air from beneath the car. Driven by Niki Lauda to its only win (and appearance) at the Swedish GP, before through regulation change and politics it was banned. It may have been short lived anyway, as Lauda described the car as being unpleasant to drive due to the lateral loads and reliance on aerodynamics over driver skill.

1978 Lotus 79 (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): Ronnie Petersen drove this Lotus 79 to victory at the Austrian GP in 1978. Petersen finished second to Mario Andretti in the Drivers Championship that year. Sadly, the loveable Swede who died following complications from injuries received on an opening lap accident at the Italian GP at Monza would likely have won the championship from his teammate if the accident had never happened.

2000's:

2000 Jaguar R1: Jaguar Racing was formed in 2000 after the purchase of Jackie Stewart's Grand Prix team. Launched to much excitement and anticipation, the team could not produce the results, though not for a lack of trying by its drivers. Eddie Irvine (1999 world championship runner up with Ferrari) was the lead team driver, and he scored the teams only two podium finishes.
Model by HOTWHEELS 1/43

Model by HOT WHEELS 1/43
2001 Jaguar R2: Jaguar struggled to make the new Cosworth CR3 V10 engine competitive. Irvine scored nine points for the team during a season marked by internal turmoil and a lack of funds and experience to compete technically with the top teams in F1. Moments of brilliant promise, enough to keep the hopes of fans like me looking for the miracle that never came.
Model by HOTWHEELS 1/43

2002 Jaguar R3: Jaguar started the 2002 F1 season with hopes of building on the previous season. Eddie Irvine was again the team's principal driver, with Pedro de la Rosa in the second car. After an initial fourth in Australia, everything started to spiral downward due to poor reliability and a lack of horsepower. Some late season adjustments allowed Irvine to take 3rd place Monza.
Model by HOTWHEELS (modified) 1/43
2003 Jaguar R4: The 2002 season was a disaster for the team, with both cars only finishing two races. Mark Webber joined the team for '03 and the team stabilized in the results, but usually finished outside the points. Ford was not happy that it was not getting a better return on its investment and began to shrink team resources even further. The end was near.

2004 Ferrari F2004 (WORLD CHAMPION) & (CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPION): Ferrari has had many great F1 champions through the years. None have rivaled the success of Michael Schumacher with his 7 titles and one of his greatest in the F2004.

2004 Williams FW26 F1: Designed for the 2004 Formula One season, by Patrick Head, Gavin Fisher and Antonia Terzi. It was driven by Ralf Schumacher and Juan-Pablo Montoya and proved to be one of the most attention grabing cars of the season. The FW26 was powered by a BMW 3.0 V10 engine, one of the most powerful in F1 at the time. The car did not live up to expectations, only taking one win and one pole during the season.
Model by SCALEXTRIC 1/32

Down to 2.4L:

2004 Jaguar R5: Mark Webber was able to qualify the car near the front and it showed great promise, but overall results had not significantly improved. To rise to the top of F1 in four years was an unrealistic expectation given the highly technical nature of F1 and level of competition. Regardless, Ford declined to invest more and brought the curtain down by selling both Cosworth and the F1 team at the end of '04 season.
Model by HOTWHEELS 1/18
2005 Ferrari F2005: The difference a season makes! After 6 straight seasons of Ferrari winning the constructors championship, and five straight drivers championships, the F2005 was not a successful car, and Ferrari scored their lowest result in the constructors since 1995. The general consensus was that it was due to the Bridgestone tires the team used, which were poor in comparison to the Michelin tires that were used by the majority of teams. The only win was at the USGP.
