Description
The ultimate classic Formula 5000
Only one of 3 ever built, the MR8 is one of Elfin's perfect creations
Raced by Garrie Cooper until 1979 when Larry Perkins took over the driving duties and promptly won the 1979 Rothmans International F5000 series. Perkins again won races the following year but the highlight came in 1980 when French F1 driver Didier Peroni drove the car to 3rd place in the 1980 Australian Grand Prix at Calder, finishing behind winner Alan Jones in a then current FW07 Williams F1and Bruno Giacomelli in a current spec Alfa Romeo F1 car. Pironi lapped all other F5000s in what was an amazing race.
The car has had extensive restoration works including an 18 month stint at K & A Engineering for major overhaul works. Dale Konecke still remembered the car from the time he ran Larry Perkins in it during the 1970's!!
Happy to facilitate an inspection and a test drive
