Le Mans Obscurities

Does anyone have any pictures of the MiG-99 from 1993? Good evening all I have just discovered the forum.

Yes thanks !!!

Nice looking car, pity it did not work.

Can you wait until I have time to search photo album scan and post ?

Call back Monday evening, if not PM me a reminder. Think I have a photo of it in the pits head on. As it only done a few laps I dont think I have any of it in action though.

Wasnt that a Fulvio Ballabio creation alongside the ex-Dywa aurora F1/F300 car that became the Monaco F3000 car? Top man Fulvio - wish he'd cgot a superlicence when he went to drive for Spirit in F1 - ah well at least he drove for Merzario in F2....

Osella stands not only for the renowned F1/sportscar team, but also Organisation for Supporting Enthusiastically Largely Luckless Automobiles. Yes I know I should get out more. One day there will be a website devoted to this fantastic team, I haven't come across a good one yet. And another thing. If memory serves, did Nicola Larini not briefly hold down third place in Canada around 90-91? Documentary evidence greatly appreciated.

Yes he did but then water got in the Electrics.... In fact it was Canada 89. Osella just shade Minardi as the greatest F1 team ever.

Has anyone any knowledge of a pair of "UK Lamborghini Jotas which failed to qualify for Le Mans in 91 I think!"


Osella,

I'm having real problems trying to trace these cars, I'm interested as I had not heard of them nor seen them.

I will e mail the Eagle photo as soon as poss, the Allard as well once I have found the photo, however I think the photo I have is of the BRM not the Allard. Will that do ?

I was wrong. They're on the '95 entry list, cars 31 and 32, GT1 class, AIM/Team Lamborghini UK, Lambo Jotas, drivers Rupert Keegan, Harry Nuttal, DNA (did not attend??)http://user.tninet.se/~aiq291w/1995.htm
Any photos of anything obscure would be luvverly. Howsabout Ed Arnolds No.63 BMW M5, a no-show from '93, or the Jankel Corvette?

I don't believe any of these actually attended (or were invited to attend by the ACO) for practice. Mention was made of the Allard. I was very disappointed when that "no-showed". I've still got a picture of it snipped from Autosport somewhere.

Oh, and Rupert Keegan drove the 52 Lister Storm in '95 which went out early with transmission failure.

Of the 2 Lambo's entered only 1 arrived, it was deemed against the rules and not passed scrutineering as the engine had been turned to allow the race gearbox to be fitted. The car was only finished 1 month before LM and minor problems like siting of the engine were obviously overlooked !!

I have searched the web to get a LM photo to no avail.

Osella you have an e mail with the 1 photo I did find !

There is a pic of the No.32 Jota in this month's LeMans and Sportscar
Mag. I haven't bought it so I can't scan it for you! Apparently it was a spaceframe machine shown to the ACO at prequalifying. They had a letter of intent from Lamborghini to build roadgoing equivalents. Mike Youles was involved, apparently at the one test they did compare favourably with the Venturis, (every single one of which outqualified the McLarens in '95) so it's another case of 'what might have been!'.

are you sure?

I thought it was the Ferrari F40s that were quicker than the McLarens in 1995 qualifying? One of Venturi's did quite well in qualifying, but the Lehto McLaren was quicker. I think it was something like three F40s followed by the winning McLaren then the Venturi. The other two (?) were way back, but they were a lower spec.

Obviously this is all in the GT class and not overall.

I've found a couple of photo's of the 32 Lambo. The driver was Harry Nuttall.

I had a second look at the 95 Autosport and there is a photo in the 'Koni' advert of all places.

I'll post it later tonight.
