Has to the Panoz. alot of hype surrounded this effort, only for it to fail big time.
The rest either did will or we where suprised when it turned up.

I voted for the Lucchini, as it was an even crappier little spyder than the......... (no, I can't bring to myself to insult it, bearing in mind the burgeoning membership of the new fan club!).

Actually, it probably should have been the MIG, a complete waste of an entry.

Re the MIG, during Pre Q it ran well with a Lambo engine in it, but for the race it turned up with a Motori Moderi ( or some such ) that was hopeless. the car flexed so much that the drivers could not change gear!!
I quite liked it and admired the effort.
We must not forget Mr Canerys power boat engined Eagle....what a monster

Well really rd! I'm ashamed of you! Actually, our Tourists know that I christened the Debora with a new name back in 92 when I first saw it - B.A.D. - the Bloody Awful Debora.

But, of course, I've grown to love it since then.......

(By the way - I don't think it's got an 'h' on the end, has it?)

Sorry to all Aysedasi and all the Deborah fans out there, it is just my personal view and not that of the members of tentenths.com

What about the Gillete from a few years back.... Looked a bit like a hard-top seven but it made such an impact on me I can remember little else about it!

Is the Merc the CLR from '99? The one responsible for the Guerney on the wings of the prototypes and the removal of the Mulsanne hump. Got to be a contender that one!

No the CLR was from '99 and you are right they did have a bit of habit of becoming plane. The cars from '98 where know as CLK-GTR LM which were both out in the first three hours with Engine problems.

I my opioin pretty bad cars, even with the might Merc behind them.

Want a reminder on how bad or good they really were ?

Just found this remarkable site http://gto-racing.nexen.net/Nouveau_dossier/ it is in French but has photo's of just about every sportscar you can think of, except one, sorry Paul but it might be worth looking to see if I missed it.

i remember reading about the canary in ken wells book, said it was tuned by a company that made drag race engine(!) and lasted about as long as one of them!!

the MiG had a porsche road car gearbx i think, which wasnt up to the demands of the power available, hence the flexing.

dunno why they chnaged to Motori Modena (sponsorship?) they made he minardi f1 engines for a year i think, and had a habit of not working! same with their q scale rc engine.

does anyone have any pictures of the MiG cos the only one ive seen is of the cockpit, and i really want to see what this car looks like.

what about the norma w12, also in 1990. why anyone would want to use the life w12 f1 engine i dont kow, that barely lasted to the end of the pitlane in f1 guise, were the team mad to think it would last 24 hours!! also ken wells said that no one believed it actually existed as there was never any sign of it in the paddock until scrutineering, anyone got any pics of this one as well?
