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.
