Wolf WR1

On Display

Jody Scheckter drove this car during the 1977 Formula One season, winning races in Argentina, Monaco and Canada. Six other podium finishes were enough to secure the South African driver second place in that year’s Drivers’ World Championship and fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship for Wolf. Like many other Formula One cars of the era, it is powered by a Ford-Cosworth DFV engine coupled to a Hewland gearbox.

Austrian born, Canadian team owner Walter Wolf had previously financed the Frank Williams team. When that partnership ended in 1976 the new Walter Wolf Racing Team was established with cars designed by Harvey Postlethwaite. The success of that first season was not to be repeated. Two disappointing years followed with Walter Wolf leaving the sport at the end of 1979. The Wolf team was merged with the Fittipaldi team.
