ford71 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I would have thought that Team 888 had the ability to design and build a lot, if not all, of those transporter features, rather than paying Graham Lusty Trailers

They can probably build one, but they do not have the money for ADR compliance etc. to make it road legal.

Most important thing in any business is to concentrate on your core business and do not get distracted by things you could do but are not really the best at...

And see how far the trucks have come too, the latest top line Volvos showing almost double the horsepower of this old Ford Aeromax..

There may have been 2 of them

I recall that the Carter team had their truck painted in black for the NetComm backing in the late 1980's. Cant see that they would paint it black, then back to the rainbow colours we see here.

In 1977 when it was built it was in Brian Wood Ford colours then changed when Murray changed to Mazda with a new sponsor , then black with Netcomm sponsorship then like it is now in the 1990's when he was running Nissan Pulsars in the Production car series.

If Murray's is a bit low-rent (he just announced his retirement from motorsport on FB the other day, by the way), maybe someone will be interested in the Preston Hire equipe... http://www.my105.com/ListingDetails/...68/exfeature/1
