    Thumbs up

    Great vid! Look at the suspension travel of those front wheels Must be more than my 360!

    I love 70ís F1 cars with their tea-pot air intakes. Not enough archive footage of them around. Everyone seems to concentrate on the 50ís and 60ís cars. Maybe as time moves on the 70ís cars will become more classic.

    Agree Gary... 70's F1 cars are fantastic. JPS Lotus... STP March... Saudia Williams, Parmalat Alfas....Durex sponsored cars... Big wheels, big bhp, big sideburns, James Hunt, Giles Villeneurve (spelling?) a fun time.

    Great clip.

    Great video! Thanks!

    Incidentally, have you seen the onboard lap at Monaco driven by Depailler on P34? That's a great video too. I'll see if I can find it.

    Great clip Tony saw them race a few years ago at Silverstone in the historic F1 race after the GP and they battered the rest of the grid.

    If that was the year Bernie (allegedly) refused to let them share his TV equipment (wonder why...) I was there too - fantastic !

    Here it is. It's interesting to be able to see the driver's feet on the pedals.

    And here are more interesting videos.

    ahh - but the much better 6 wheeler was the Williams FW08B of 82 with four driven wheels at the back. Unfortunately the FIA banned four wheel drive. At one point Jonathan Palmer held the Goodwood FOS hill record in it. I remember seeing him do it. Awseome

    There have been various other versions of 6 wheelers including the Ferrari 312T6 (a modified T2) with twin rear wheels on the same axle.

    you can find out about all these and others at http://www.f1nutter.co.uk/tech/6wheels.php
