That is the old Interseries at Most. It has thrown up more than its fair share of fuglies in the 90's. The car there is a Lola T89/50 and the one exiting left is a Penske PC18.

Or perhaps the Start from 1992? http://racingsportscars.t35.com:8000...-08-30-062.jpg

Anyone remember Jose Thibault's Chevron-ROC C2 at Le Mans in 1986/7 or thereabouts? A Chevron B36 chassis with bodywork that had previously seen service on the Sthemo or Isolia C2 cars, complete with all 4 wheels fully faired-in

Horrible..... (there must be a pic on the web somewhere...)

Guys....

Nothing is as Ugly as some of the madcap creations back from the original Can-Am days in the late 1960s and early 1970s...

Surf the web for pics of the original UOP Shadow to get a taste or what Ugly or Grotesque really mean when it comes to sportscars....

I'm still searching out a picture of the ugliest racecar ever (any type of major series) that date back to 1963 0r 1964...

Smokey Ynunnick build a car for the Indy 500 that literally look ed like a motorcycle side car mounted to a flat frame with a big engine sitting right next to the driver...Butt Ugly...

But I cannot find a pic of it anywhere (and it would probably be copyrighted anyway...

I have found basic mentions of it when I have searched with paramenters like

Yunnick

Side Car

Indy 500

used in the same advanced search but putting the terms into different requested search fields separately...

Look at the Can-Am prototypes though...some were just awful...

How about the Chevron based thing that ran in Can-am or IMSA in the early 80s? It had a bubble top but no doors as far as I could see.

The dutch winter endurance championship I'm one of the three witnesses who saw it made an ugly spin somewhere at Zolder on a very cold sunday.

The car in basic shape is not bad, but those skirts! Can the designer of that be sent to jail?

Peter Canary's Eagle at LM in the late 80's was not so ugly but desperately slow and stupid in conception. And the new Ford Gt 40 in race version will be ugly too.

To Zandbak:


He probably can be sent to jail for it...

Charge him with "Assaulting Racing Fans"

or possibly "Impersonating a Designer with a Clue"

or even "Aggravated Vandalism of Engineering Sensibilities"

Take a pretty open Lancia, buy some GRP and sellotape & hey presto you end up with this.....
Maybe not the worst ever looking car, but its close when you consider what it used to look like.
Big pat on back to whoever names the car, venue & year.

Lancia LC1- the Gp6 barchetta that Martini Racing ran in the first year of Group C, modified to a Gp C car by the Sivama-Grifone team (hink that's the correct name) in 1983.

Circuit looks like Silverstone- didn't Mark Thatcher drive for them at one point, or was that earlier when they ran Gp 5 Beta Monte Carlos?

As you said- how to butcher an originally pretty car in one easy lesson....
