Probably some DIY racecar, can't find it's name anywhere.
A really odd looking machine. They did improve the nose over the course of the season but the whole thing is just odd. Especially those sidepods and air intakes.
K4GP throws up some, err, interesting stuff still.
That's a beautiful little machine, and no that isn't my Kei-car bias talking.
Ok maybe it is
It also throws up some gorgeous stuff too.
Ah, Charcoal. Based on an F1600 with a full carbon fibre body. Often called a cockroach.
How is this legal ?
Because without it the nose would be illegal?
The car looks like a toy.
You can see about 1/5 of it. And it just looks like a bog standard Raid car.
Posting one thread-worthy picture is much better than spamming the thread with random pictures and half-hearted attempts at Top Gear style anecdotes.
Was trying to find a full image of it buuuut...
I didn't find what I was looking for.
No idea what it is, but...
'Tis a converted March F2 car.
It's just a Nissan Terrano. Nothing ugly about it.
If it wasn't for the prongs being different sizes to each other, I reckon it would've looke pretty good
But then it wouldn't be legal.
1987 March 871
Not a fan of the semi-exposed engine bay. Weird ridges along the sidepod. The overhead airbox was a mid-season addition and makes the car look so bad.
... Someone tried to build a miniature Mclaren M8D?
I think it was an F3000 car dressed up to F1 specs; it was funny-looking, though. The 3.0L teams tried various innovations like that (airboxes weren't common then), including semi-uncovered engine bays. Ah, when cars really looked quite different than each other.
I think the following years' 881 and CG891 was one of the more lovely designs on the grid.
...No, Don Nichols formed Shadow (then AVS) in 1968, and entered the Mk1 in Can Am in 1970 - the same year the M8D was first introduced. The first design went public a whole year beforehand. The reason it's tiny is because they experimented with reduced frontal areas, which worked in a straight line (190mph at Mosport), but made cooling a nightmare. Fast enough cars, but they baked themselves.
The Mk1 Shadows also suffered from a severe weight distribution-related problems due to having to switch to a conventional, heavy big-block Chevy V8 when both cars were supposedly built around Toyota's Twin-Turbo 5 liter V8. Plus, they were built around pop-up air brakes that were banned shortly before the season started... They were quite wild little cars, but I always liked them.
BMW M1C...ew...(only clear large photo...annnnnnddddd there's a marshall's head in the way. xD )
That happens a lot
Found this one on Flickr.. no marshalls...

I'm more taken aback by what looks to be the world's largest Headrest. Its damn near half the cockpit.
The Tom Mitchell March 832.
Another look at the oddly proportioned McLaren MP4/10.
Am I the only one who thinks these new lmp3 cars looks hideous?
I quite liked the Ginetta one from this year, maybe it was just the livery that helped.
