Adrian Newey's first CAD/CAM chassis in full carbon fiber at March in 1989. Full restoration with Judd EV engine (EDL rebuild), new gearbox internals, new CWP, AP carbon clutch, new carbon brakes, air starter, many spares including nose/wing, rear wing, gearsets, wheels, uprights, wishbones, pushrods. Original Lifeline Halon fire system present, so would need update before racing. Available as a roller as well.


Last raced in 1989 at Silverstone, qualified 6th, retired in 5th place (10 laps from finish) due to gearbox. "Generally smaller than its predecessor, the CG891 sported larger side pods carrying bigger water radiators, and the new, narrow angle Judd EV, for March on an exclusive basis, Newey incorporated to improve aerodynamics by reducing frontal area. A new March longitudinal gearbox positioned ahead of the axle improved weight distribution. This enabled the design to incorporate a distinctively wide, arched diffuser panel beneath the rear wing. (paraphrase from Alan Henry's book: "MARCH - The Grand Prix & Indy Cars" 1989)
