Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler Jody Scheckter SCX Scalextric Exin

Unless you have been enclose your whole life you must have seen this wonderful car at least once. Here it is, the Tyrrell P34 better known as “The Six-Wheeler“, considered  the most recognizable design in motorsport world of all times. Together with Brabham BT46b, P34 was one of the most radical entries.

The Six-Wheeler raced the whole 1976 and 1977 seasons even achieving a magnificent victory and a dozen of podiums, raising Tyrrell Team to third step of 1976 Constructors Championship.

The P34 project came from search of a better drag coefficient or air penetration coefficient, and improve of  braking capabilities by increasing tyre surface in contact with asphalt. Although we have seen another six wheels cars in F1, no one even was used in competition, however this one further won in hands of South African driver Jody Scheckter the 1976 Swedish GP. What a success!
