Henri Toivonen's 1982 F1 tests

Post by redhawkk » 2 months ago

In 1982, Henri Toivonen tested in both a McLaren and March car. In his March test, he apparently had lapped Raul Boesel by more than a second.

I have struggled to find much on either of these outside photos from his F3 career..
Have a Day!!

There's lots of F3 pictures around, but none from his F1 tests it seems...

My understanding was it was a Rothmans March.... HT was I believe at the time a Rothmans backed driver in Rallying. Dont ask me how I know or where I read about it. I havent a clue, its just something that was in a dark corner of my distant memory and may be not 100% correct. But I think so.. :blush:

*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Yup you are right. He drove the March 821 at a very wet Silverstone, which might be why there are no photos.

Toivonen/Piironen ran in 1984 with Rothmans Porsche rallies in the European Championship.

He also ran in a Rothmans backed Opel immediately prior to that
