1981 March 811: Formula Vice

Brought to you by Jaeger-LeCoultre

In this week’s Made to Drive installment we are in Florida with Petrolicious’ friend and vintage motorsport enthusiast, John Campion. Joining his collection recently, this 1981 March 811 Formula 1 car represents a different era of top-level racing, wherein one could buy an engine and build a chassis to compete without spending hundreds of millions of manufacturer dollars. Though this sinister black sword of a racing car wasn’t on the same pace as that year’s world championship contenders, the Guinness-sponsored machine driven by Irishman Derek Daly was still ferociously quick in an absolute sense, and it’s a treat to see it in action on a race track so many decades later on.

Watch John interview 2017 Motorsport Ireland Young Racing Driver Of The Year and Sexton trophy winner, Jordan Dempsey: https://youtu.be/h45cBGl4DPU

    Designed by Adrian Newey. It was his 3rd car design, and according to his autobiography, his most important, because it laid down the fundamentals for all his future work.

    I think it's great that someone is willing to put miles on a classic F1 car for a photo op, don't get me wrong, but I do wish the video would've had more driving and car sounds and less talking and music. Also, if you had a young, proper racing driver in that thing, why only show us the sedate driving of a middle-aged amateur? I understand he's the owner, but to me this all feels like a big wasted opportunity.

    Okay guys, need five minutes of video of just the car on track with nobody yapping. C’mon. You did it with the Ferrari 250 GTO on that wonderful mountain road, you can publish another pure sound video like that again.

    absolute record for using word "I" in one video

  32. Post By P Kuudsk

    I watch most of these 2x the production is great. Back when racing was real and cars were built without massive rule books ,the drivers drank smoked and had women chasing them like rock stars. All the vintage racing is better to me.

    5:29 onwards, great storytelling, together with the sound it feels like im there, amazing video!

    "When you get a dollar or two.." How about "when you get enough to spare a million or two to purchase and restore a classic F1 machine with provenance…"I dislike false humility.

    Most unsuccessful f1 car ever? Only finished 4 races, no points and didn't even qualify for most.
