1977 Wolf WR1

Fielded by Walter Wolf Racing, which was founded by Canadian businessman Walter Wolf, the WR1 made its debut at the 1977 Argentina Grand Prix – and it sensationally won the race. This was a historic result, as it was the first time ever that new team won its debut race with a new car.

The WR1 was designed by Harvey Postlethwaite, and it featured a light and considerably compact design. With Jody Scheckter at the wheel, the WR1 also went on to win the Monaco and Canadian GPs. At the end of the season, Scheckter finished second in the driver standings while the team finished a respectable fourth in the constructor standings despite fielding only one car. The WR1remained in Walter Wolf’s ownership until it was sold in 2017.
