View Full Version : Subaru's F1 'effort'.

01-15-03, 12:12 PM
I was thinking this morning about potential engine suppliers for CART for 2005. One of the ideas floating around is trying to attract the 'rice-rocket' manufacturers. I was thinking about Subaru for a moment and remembered that they had an engine in F1. The question I would like to put out is did they use a boxer 12 or a V12?


Anyone? Bueller... Beuller..

Thanks for the link. So it was a boxer. I don't know if that engine configuration would work well in a ground effects car.

You could have put a real rocket in a Coloni and been uncompetitive.

Hmmm, too bad, it wasn't a bad looking car....
