Don't let me loose on here with pics of classic racing cars!

Thankfully I've still got to scan most of them - but here are 2 of my favourites :D

Ahh, the six wheel tyrrel. Nice.

The new cars do look a tad on the absolutely foo cing ugly side. That mini wing at the back and the massive wide crash structure at the front looks so imbalanced.

Mind you the recent additions to the front of the racey Hondas and McL are fugly too.

Bring back the JPS scheme I say...

you have to love the theory of the 6 wheel setup :D

a lot of inovation has been lost these days :cry:

its all about losing a fraction of a second over a number of laps , theres just no excitement to it anymore

It's still got the main bodywork to be fitted and somewhere I've got some pics of it built up and of it in the pits showing the steering mechanism for the front wheels.

This is one nice thing about classic events - you can get into the pits and look at the cars and talk to the owners and drivers. Brilliant!

Those new F1s are really fugly. First thing that came to my mind was a driveable lawnmover (the type that has the cutting device in front).
And that rear wing is just hideous.
