Those were used pre-chicane days. They aren't as useful anymore, and slow down pitstops.

Chicanes were already up by then.

The 905B didn't have the enclosed wheels but this unraced car did.

Theres details about the car in the 1992 World Sportscar Racing annual.

It was apparently much lighter than the 905B and produced more downforce.

BTW, why do we not see front wings like these any longer, are they banned?

Lister appears to have gone the furthest with regads to a front wing type set-up. Surley a high downforce set-up is a bigger priority than low drag these days.

Getting back to the subject at hand (Lister Hybrid) finally had a look a the images over at DSC(its back on line). The front "wing" is more a front suspension cover ala Bentley LMGTP. Wings are highly regulated, at least the traditional ones (official definition being something along the lines of two non parallal arcs that meet at a leading edge and close at a trailing edge--its in the rule book which isn't in front of me at the time). Of course the "traditional" wings are pretty efficient as opposed to dive planes (call them non-traditional if you will). Anyhow, it would appear that structure extending from the nose on the Lister to the front fender is meerly a cover similar to what Bentley did with the last LMGTP. Though similar in ideology only, from the rest of the images it appears once again Lister has a very unique and intersting prototype. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

I spoke to Fiona Pearce at Spa last week and she said that it is unlikely we will see the car, in full, until it is unloaded from the transporter at Silverstone LMES. She doubts that the team will have time to paint it up either

Like the illegitimate love-child of a liaison between a Lister LMP1 and a WR LMP2 ?

U-G-L-Y you ain't got no alibi....Good on them for developing this sort of project with limited funds. But it is even uglier then the original. I hope it is faster then it looks.

Damn that is f-ugly
