funformula should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Sorry to create some more confusion.

I had a look in the German January 2002 issue of "F1-Magazine". There is an article about the Arrows A2.
The article says that the car shown in the pictures it is A2-1 only driven by Patrese in seven GPīs in 1979. The pictures show the car with the modified roll-hoop, No.30 on it and with Massīs name written on both sides. It is not mentioned in the article why it is not in Patrese outfit any more.

There is a statement from Jackie Oliver telling about the history of the A2. He said that there were two cars built, the one in the pictures and one he still ownes (in 2002).

That suggests that Oliver owned A2-2, or is there maybe a fault in the translation for the German issue? Does anybody have the English issue of F1-Racing to check this?

Arrows A2

I can confirm that there was indeed a third, unraced, chassis. My late brother, Ken Wells, obtained it from Arrows. When he sadly died in 1992 it was sold and shipped to Tokyo.

I have many pics, somewhere, as proof.

I got on very well with your late brother and we corresponded on a number of issues in the 1980s. He never did show me pictures of the A3 and I'd be very interested to see them. My email is allen@oldracingcars.com if you'd be willing to share a few.

Very interesting that it went to Japan. I had always wondered where his cars went.
