1976 March 2-4-0 Ganley

The attempt of March to build a 6-wheeler Formula 1 car resulted in the experimental 2-4-0 model with two wheels at the rear, designed by Robin Herd. The first test took place at Silverstone in late 1976 with Howden Ganley, March test driver. Unfortunately, on the initial lap the gearbox casing flexed and the gears became unmeshed. In February 1977, the car — now fitted with a stronger gearbox — ran again at Silverstone with driver Ian Scheckter at the wheel. This was the end of 2-4-0’s F1 development history.
