[Peter, do we actually mean type 58]
Hi John...
yes you are absolutely right, it was the 56b.
My old dislexia is playing up again...

Also I found a site that has illustration profiles of many Lotus F1 cars including the 56b, that may be worth a gander...

www.f1-legend.com

Thanks and cheers
Peter

You are right. It is commonly reported as being banned though.
Probably Brabham pulled it before the rest ganged up and got it banned.

And I agree with the garden shed wing quip...well it looks like my old shed anyway...

And yes Williams did do a 6-wheeler, but I tink it had 4 rear wheels rather than like the tyrrell's 4 fronts.

Isn't age a wonderful thing...


Cheers...
Great thread for the ole memory box...pre-electronic paddle shift.

As I remember they didn't have to "ban" the BT-46B. It was just declared to have a movable airfoil (the fan), and movable airfoils are illegal.

How about double rear wings, some samples:

Quirky looking but relatively good car Toleman TG183B

If this car didn't have wings it would look like Formula Ford, lack of sidepods making the impression: Ligier JS21

This double wing car was disqualified later from the results of Long Beach 1982 race: Ferrari 126C2

Someone mentioned odd front wing of the March 711 car, here's Ronnie Peterson in Monaco GP with March

More conventional looking, but similar placement: Theodore TY 01

A good contribution 429CJ.

This ferrari was a prototype developed in 1969 with no intention on racing. it was merely a showcase of technology at the time SIGMA & another SIGMA2

This another odd looking Ferrari 312/B3

The Arrows A2 has to be one of my fav' looking cars of all time ARROWS
& A2 very

Hi Robert
agreed. It was classed as a movable aero device and was removed rather than an outright ban.

Also...
429CJ and IL LEONE...
Great pics. This stroll down memory lane is turning into a real route march.

It makes me miss the time designers had a lot more freedom.

Thanks.

Cheers
Peter
