This is chassis #8 and was driven by Jacques Laffite and Keke Rosberg in a total of 12 Grand Prix in 1983. The car ran as high as second in Monaco with the sister car driven by Keke Rosberg making a famous win by "beating the Turbos".The car is in full running condition and has only 20 mins on a fresh Reilly rebuild.
The car was sold by Williams Grand Prix Engineering in 1985 to Ray Bellm. It was then raced/owned by John Foulston and Tony Gordon before being bought again by Ray Bellm in 1983. I bought the car from Richard Eyre in the UK in 2004. The FIA papers list all previous owners.
