6 Wheeled F1 Cars

When you think of 6 wheeled Formula 1 cars the Tyrell P34 always comes to mind, with its iconic 4 up front wheel configuration. However a few other manufacturers had a go, but not with the front, but the rear wheels, here’s some pictures and links to a few, unfortunately the regulations in 1983 took all the fun out of it banning 4 wheel drive and soon after 6 wheeled cars-

1977 Ferrari 312T6-





1982 Williams FW08-6W-





1977 March 1-2-4-

Tyrell P34-






Unfortunately with the exception of the Tyrell the other cars seem to only have been prototypes and run only a few times as a result information on them is sketchy. They do however allow you to hark back to a time when motorsport was all about trying something outrageous and innovitive to push the boundaries of the sport, its a shame the regulations don't allow this any more.

  12. A early life dream in movement. inside the eyes of an 8-12 months-antique, a six-wheeled racing device turned into the self-styled artwork of technological know-how fiction having end up instantaneous fact. A car in contrast to anything you saw in the road, the P34 hit your brain like a ton of bricks. and then it won in Sweden, and got here 2nd there as nicely. Its beautybecame in the eye of the beholder and had to grow on you, but as a ambitious assertion of progress and modernity, it become an immediate success. northamptonmotorcentre.co.uk
