BRABHAM BT52 1983 (ALL MODELS): an insight into the design engineering maintenante and operation of Brabham’s Bmw-turbo-powered F1 car

The Brabham BT52 was designed by F1 design genius Gordon Murray, with David North, for the 1983 F1 season, and took driver Nelson Piquet to his second World Championship title. The car was a radical rethink that built upon knowledge gained during the ground-effect era, and the growing potency of BMW’s 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbo engine. The distinctive ‘dart’-shaped BT52 featured two ground-breaking concepts – mid-race refuelling, and significantly rear-biased weight distribution for improved traction in the era of ever-increasing turbo power outputs. The BMW engine delivered over 1,000bhp for short periods in qualifying trim, with the aid of exotic fuels to boost power, and around 750bhp in race trim, making for an impressive sight and sound during one of F1’s most spectacular eras. A fascinating insight into one of the most spectacular and distinctive cars ever to grace the F1 grid, and a glimpse into an era when the rule book allowed for free-thinking and ground-breaking innovation.


The Lotus 79, with its classic JPS black and gold sponsorship colours, was the first F1 car to fully exploit the potential of ground-effect aerodynamics. Designed by Colin Chapman and his engineering team, the Lotus 79 dominated the 1978 World Championship, taking US driver Mario Andretti to his only F1 World Championship. Lotus's two drivers, Mario Andretti and 'Super Swede' Ronnie Peterson proved almost unbeatable, with four 1–2 finishes during the season. During its career, the Lotus 79 won 7 races, took 10 pole positions, and won the last drivers' and constructors' championships for Lotus. Featuring input from the engineers and drivers who were instrumental in the car’s success, including Peter Wright and Martin Ogilvie, this Manual includes numerous contemporary photographs, in addition to detailed images of Lotus 79 in the workshop today. A fascinating insight into an iconic F1 car.
