Yes, in Germany. Wasn´t it the one with the missing steering rack?


BTW missing parts: You don´t have a Tyrrell 024 headrest somewhere in the corner of your workshop? I may need one  :wave:


BTW corner of your workshop: Is the red Tyrrell in the picture the one that was converted into a Ferrari lookalike showar?


Someone in Belgium did a trade for the 026 and a road car, he didn't want the Tyrrell so I bought it for Ricardo.

It didn't have a proper steering rack just some gears so that the wheels could be turned!


No, unfortunately I've not got anything as modern as 024 parts. I'm sure you already know who is most likely to have them - Frits...


Yes the red Tyrrell is the 014 that was converted into a Ferrari show car, it's now in England looking like a Tyrrell again.

Thank you Peter for the Information  :up:


Yes, he might have all that Tyrrell 024 stuff, problem is how to get in touch.

I will do Imola Minardi Days next year, so maybe there will be a chance to talk to him   ;)

I believe Jim Richards has purchased three of the Group A touring cars that he raced from the mid-80's up to the early 90's - the JPS BMW 635 and M3, and the Nissan Skyline HR-31.
