Hopefully Subaru can do something like that here in the US.

Something from H&R I guess if you look at the licence plate.

Rubbish. Half of their rally wins and championships, as well as their LeMans class win was after Toyota fully bought them out, in 1993. Of course, Ove remained with Toyota even through the F1 years, though no longer running the show, up to his death.


RIP Ove

Sorry, but I'd call going from world champions to being banned from the sport going downhill and I'd say that 18 months is pretty rapid.

You may disagree, but it's hard to understand why.

It was racing in VLN (Nürburgring endurance league), the only championship where a good'ol e36 M3 shares track time with factory Audi R8s and McLarens.

Again, it's because of the VLN. All the cars have that H&R license plate (check the Seat in the background).

As for TMG, I know those chaps and they're still pretty much the best in the business. Their F1 attempts suffered mostly of lack of team coherence and leadership, not poor engineering. They showed an impressive pace at Le Mans this year and I am confident they'll continue improving.

You might think you can do the same on your FR-S for less money, but throwing branded parts on a stock car isn't all they did. They had actual chassis engineers and race drivers work on the car.

They got banned for what was termed by then FIA president as "The most ingenious thing I have seen in 30 years of motorsport."

Never mind they came back and won another world championship to prove a point. And never mind that Toyota already owned a sizeable amount of the company since the late 70's

That makes 2 of us! Anyone know where to find one or is my gut feeling right and it was most likely a custom steering wheel that they made (considering their history/size and their many partnerships)?

Found a sexy steering wheel conversion!

http://www.frsport.com/Cusco-Suede-S...Z_p_48730.html

Still waiting/wondering if Prova will be making one as well. I would assume so.

It's not cheap, but it is street legal (big +)!

Cool! Hopefully the owner puts it to more use than his other cars.
