Life History & Team Record

Yet another ill-fated attempt by an Italian industrialist to become the next Enzo Ferrari!
The tiny team attempted to qualify a chassis designed in 1988 mated with a radical W12 engine design. Gary Brabham (son of World Champion, Jack Brabham) quit after 2 races.  The following 12 (unsuccessful) qualifying attempts where made by journeyman Bruno Giacomelli, including the last 2 efforts using a conventional Judd V8 engine.

The team disappeared before the end of the season.
