‘Project 34’ Tyrrell P34 1976 - J.Scheckter

‘Project 34’ Tyrrell P34 1976 - Swedish Grand Prix. F1s first 6-wheeled car, initially built as a concept vehicle and one that was met with total disbelief upon its launch. Early testing of the didn’t not go well, and it was was a huge risk to commit to the 1976 season with such a radical car, especially after a string of very successful ‘00’ cars. However, the long list of early issues was slowly ironed out and the car eventually proved hugely competitive, with Jody Scheckter winning the Swedish GP amongst several other strong finishes. Despite his success Scheckter could not get used to the P34s odd driving style, and left the team at the end of the season, harshly labelling the car a ‘piece of junk’. The P34s unexpected success lead to several other teams experimenting with 6 wheels, including Ferrari, Williams & March, but none would come close to the P34s achievements.

Support Draw to Drive

Dear friends,

when we started this journey, our only goal was to build a small community of octane art lovers. Your passion made Draw to Drive community grow beyond our expectations. As you probably know Draw to Drive is a project developed, maintained and financed by team of three co-founders. With the constant growth of the community, our operating costs grew as well, together with the time needed for maintaining the current platform. Next to that, new features had to take a back seat.

We came to a point when we have to ask for your support to develop new features and keep the platform running. We have enabled a donate functionality so, if you want, you can now support us financially to build a better platform and attract more automotive enthusiasts to our community. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
