Description

Freshly restored with no expense spared, this car has had a very limited use in the FIA sanctioned Thoroughbred Grand Prix (TGP) series where it has been raced.

Given the fantastic results achived by Bob Berridge's sister car (chassis 01-3), winning the TGP championship in 1997, this car has got tremendous potential.

It represents fantastic value and an excellent opportunity to join the fast growing Historic Formula 1 circle in Europe or Stateside for a very reasonable price.

History

Run by John Macdonald, RAM Racing made several attemps in the seventies and early eighties at entering Formula 1, admittedly without much success. It returned in 1983 with a proprietary design in the form if the RAM-March 01 presented here. Designed by Dave Kelly, it was a straightforward car powered by a Cosworth DFV engine. 3 cars were built, driven by Eliseo Salazar, Kenny Acheson, Jonathan Palmer, Jean-Louis Schlesser and Jacques Villeneuve. 1983 was a difficult year for RAM with little success and many failures at qualifying the cars. Best placings included a 15th in the first GP of the season, driven by Salazar, and a 12th in the last GP, driven by Acheson. RAM persevered in 1984 and 1985 with 02 and 03 models now powered by Hart 415T turbo engines. Lack of sponsorship in 1986 meant the end of the road for RAM. Chassis 01-2 presented here achieved its best result in the hands of Jean-Louis Schlesser, finishing 6th overall at the Race of Champions at Brands Hatch in April 1983.

Recent Competition History

Recent results in the TGP series include a 7th overall at the Nürburgring.
