Return of the Turbine

Turbine powered race cars have played a short and dramatic, yet impressive part in the history of motorsports. Two years in a row, a turbine car was leading the Indy 500, only to falter in the final few laps. The 1967 STP-Paxton and the 1968 Lotus 56 would never win a trophy: directed by fearful but politically influential opposition, regulatory restrictions ensured a quick death of the turbine.

Now the turbine returns with the T1 Turbine Concept. Unhampered by regulations, this car will race in its own arena.
