I noticed only Jackie Stewart was mentioned as a Wolf tester. But there was another one from Poland, Andrzej Jaroszewicz. He was mentioned in another thread of Nostalgia Forum.

I saw the 1995 DAMS-test mentioned previously, but here are the F1-tests Jan Lammers did apart from the regular testing he did when he was driving for Shadow, ATS, Ensign and Theodore:

1978 Shadow DN9 (Silverstone)

1979 Lotus 79 (Paul Ricard)

1980 Brabham BT49 (Donington)

1983 Renault RE40 (Paul Ricard)

1984 Toleman TG184 (Estoril)

1992 March CG191 (Zandvoort and Estoril)

If i'm not totally wrong this is not a picture from a test. It's Rebaque during the 1983 "Race of Champions" at Brands Hatch.

:wave:

You're totally correct. I know because I took that photo :)

Is this late-1972 Kyalami photo of any interest?

Posted Image

I thought it worthy of inclusion here as a) it's John Surtees driving, some two years after he'd retired and b) it's one of the very first runs of the Surtees TS16, which of course only ever appeared during 1973 GPs in either blue & white or all-white livery.

:)


TS16 or TS14, the sidepods are certainly different from how they appeared in '73. It was these of course the mucked up "Big John's" '73 season, as he had designed well in advance for the deformable structure reg's, only for them to be relaxed slightly

South African driver, most known for sportscar exploits. A number of good finishes au Mans, I seem to remember he first raced there as a teenager. Perhaps the Jordan thing was due to the Sasol sponsorship?

I've just realised that you could have adapted this succinct post to answer both the 'Lauda's last race...' thread and the Gregor Foitek one! Impressive! :up:

A few pints of anything normally induces rambling, so succinct, in this case, is even more impressive! Succinct and accurate...

And are there yet pictures of Pirelli tyre testing from this week?

I don't know. There are strange sponsors on the cockpit and engine cover. I don't know the helmet too.

Judging by the sponsors logos it could be the Leyton House now owned by Kiwi Ken Smith, possibly taken at the annual Whittakers classic meet at Manfeild, NZ.

I spoke to Gabriele Tarquini last weekend, and he told me that the car was equipped with a BMW Turbo engine. Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone have times from this testing? And when did it take place actually? (I beleive after the 1985 season had finished.)

Any details what car?

I believe Nabil Karam drove an A1GP car or possibly GP2 , not F1.

I've read an interview with him somewhere where he mentioned that he had a F1 test. I suppose it's not with a F1 team but an older F1 car (2-3 years old) some years ago.

1988 Scott Pruett Lola Larrouse Lamborghini - Estoril trackjv13r5.jpg

Wow, this really blows me away!

Scott told me about this test a year on, and I've long envisioned what his helmet in an F1 looked like. He said he was 1.8s off the team's best time of the day, with a signed driver (Dalmas or Alliot) in two sessions of about 10 laps each, which seemed awesome for a guy in that position. If I'm not mistaken, I think it was his first time in a single-seater!

Pardon the pedantry, but the number of injection trumpets and small oval decal below the BP decal would strongly suggest this car is Ford DFZ powered and the absence of hump backed tobacco sponsorship would point to this being the LC87 model :wave:
