F1 history

Post by Enginer »

F1 history - a suitable name for my thread,
which I will use with all my pictures in the future.


First of all a curiosity in the history of Formula One -
a Renault Megane as a safety car at the "Grand Prix of Portugal" in Estoril 1996.

Image

Image

The coupé was 1996 available in four engines, starting with 1.6 liter 90 HP and ending with 2.0 liter 16V 150 HP.
The top engine of this series was the 2.0-liter 16V with 150 hp, a maximum speed of 133.6 mph
and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.6 seconds.
Crazy idea for a safety car in Formula 1 !!

Image

Image
A "small accident in the race" deformed the right headlight a little... :(

By the way -
does anyone have some photos of the original Renault safety car from this Grand Prix in Estoril in their archive?
I found no picures in the net...

Image

Another interesting car from the historical motosport scene is the Volkswagen T1, called "Bulli",
which was used by Ecurie Francorchamps (a Belgian motor racing team).
According to model manufacturer Vitesse, the original is said to date from 1955.

Image

Image

Image

From 1950 to 1956, the T1 (not called that at the time) was built in Wolfsburg/Germany.
Like the "Beetle", the first Transporters used the 1100 Volkswagen air-cooled engine, an 1,131 cc (69.0 cu in), DIN-rated 18 kW (24 PS; 24 bhp), air-cooled flat-four-cylinder 'boxer' engine mounted in the rear.
This was upgraded to the 1200 – an 1,192 cc (72.7 cu in) 22 kW (30 PS; 30 bhp) in 1953.
A higher compression ratio became standard in 1955;
while an unusual early version of the 30 kW (41 PS; 40 bhp) engine debuted exclusively on the Type 2 in 1959.

This must be the original car

Thank you very much, Tom - it gives me great pleasure to present my models here.
I "only" have about 1500 Formula 1 cars in 1:43 -
that will probably take some time ... :lol: :D

An enjoyable theme, everything you have shown here is interesting. Matching the helmets with the cars is a nice touch.

:( Unfortunately, this is not standard at Minichamps -
the tobacco stickers supplied by PMA are not to scale and the tire decals are missing entirely
(updated by me with the TAMEO kit).

Excellent post, too many great models to list! Love the Auto Union, I think I went to the same Techno Classica where they showed that. The pictures of the Mercedes at the show also look like their hall at the Techno Classica.
