So far, we know that this car:


had wings,
was not made by any mainstream car maker,
was never driven by a World Champion driver,
used a turbocharged engine,
raced in an Australian Grand Prix,
was not British,
and did not win any races.


And we also know that this team

still exists today as a racing team, but not necessarily in F1.

Did the team design & manufacture it's own engines?

Edit:

I'll have a punt on the Zakspeed 861

And your punt is right.

The Zakspeed 861, the second car made by the small German race team for the F1 World Championship, driven by Jonathan Palmer and Huub Rothengatter in the 1986 season, plus for two more races in 1987.

Schweeeeet!!!

It was the still existing clue that got me to Zakspeed and the Australian GP - the 841 didnt make it to Adelaide in 1985, the 861 did in 1986 :) Your photo of the 861 is even taken in Adelaide too :D (my home town!!)

You would have also had the 871 and 881 as options. Although only one 881 raced in 1988.

And the clues up to that point could have also led you towards the Osella team.


Remind me, because of this, to go mid-pack instead of ultra-succesful and ultra-obscure.

Yeah I know that it could have been the other ones... but I figured I'd have a punt as the timezones don't work well for me in Oz :)

I looked at Osella too - but figured Zakspeed were the better choice.

Yeah midpack cars of the 80's & 90's could be a winning formula - just don't give it away!

Thanks for pointing out the mistakes, however. It sure helps a lot.
