This car gives safety a middle finger.
I can't believe there was a Treser T1 Cup.
Very interesting. I honestly didn't know about the car at all.
Saw this car in the 'rate the vehicle above you thread.' Technically it never raced but it's probably obscure enough for ths\is thread:
This was the Holden Aventra, Australian racing legend Peter Brock's last racing car. He had planned to race it either in the 2007 or 2008 Dakar but was tragically killed during a rally in 2006. The car remained forgotten until it was revealed in 2011 and remained incomplete with no engine or transmission (and was left-hand drive).
Sadly, the car was destroyed by fire over a week ago
What was planned to be used in it? Same thing Robby Gordon had ran for years at about the same time?
Dakar rally is what it was intended for.
So sad. The car didn't move an inch, yet burned to a crisp.
Do you mean the engine? I think I read that it was meant to be a Australian V8 in it, as the engineering was meant to be an all-Australian effort
But if it's an official holden vehicle, then it would have been a GM V8, especially since Dakar is suppose to use a production engine only.
Chevron B36 Special. Competed at Le Mans in 1987.
The 80's were a great time for prototypes, so many unique designs. A personal favorite people might not know about is the Dome Zero RL:
I think it's been posted before in this thread some years ago.
Is that the first "shark fin" (don't know if it has the same name outside of F1!)?
You'd have to go a little farther back...
Not exactly as we know it today but I think it qualifies. Don't recall any pre-war cars featuring the fin either but they did start popping up in the 50's like this D-Type.
Funny how professional racers from several countries in Southeast Asia were gathered and raced dilapidated, smoking jeepneys in the Philippines last year just for fun.
