Pacific Grand Prix constructed the first car, PR01 (where PR stands for Pacific Racing) in 1993 and planned to enter the “big circus” that season. But due to financial problems the debut was postponed until 1994. The car was designed by Paul Brown, was powered by Mercedes-affiliated Ilmor, and was a hopeless outsider of the season. Bertran Gachot, driver number one, was unable to qualify in 11 races and retired in all 5 Grand Prix were he squeezed through a qualification sieve. Paul Belmondo’s performace was even worse: 14 DNQ and 2 retirements.
