1986 Arrows A8 Surer

The Arrows A8 was designed by Dave Wass and competed in the 1985 and 1986 Formula One seasons. Unlike 1985 A7, it was a purpose-designed turbo car, powered by the BMW M12 turbocharged engine. The driver pairing of the season was strong – the season was started by Marc Surer and Thierry Boutsen. Surer suffered the serious accident at the 1986 ADAC Hessen-Rallye in his Ford RS200 severely injured him and killed his co-driver and friend Michel Wyder, and  retired from Formula One halfway through the season. Christian Danner replaced Swiss driver in the team and scored the only Arrows point that season for sixth place at the 1986 Austrian Grand Prix.
