TYRRELL 010 For sale
Ex Jarier and Daly from the 1980-81 seasons
Prepared to the highest specifications
Fully serviced and race ready
In 1998, Paul Stoddart, future Minardi F1 team owner, became involved with Tyrrell, and later that year, he acquired all of the team’s historic cars, including 010/3. The car passed through two other hands until it was purchased by Loic Deman. This well known collector and racer had the car totally race prepared and rebuilt by CGA to the highest specifications. No expense was spared in updating the car with a short stroke engine and AIM data system. In only two seasons ( namely 2015-2016 ).
Loic Deman really made his mark with the famous Candy-Tyrrell, notably achieving an amazing 10 victories in 16 races during the 2015 season. It also comes with an impressive inventory of spare parts with everything needed to compete at the highest level in the FIA F1 Historic Championship. It is ready to compete with a fresh engine and has been fully serviced only two races ago with all the preparation and service documents available.
In other words, this beautiful Tyrrell 010 could only be described as being a race ready car for the 2018 season and can immediately take its place on Grand Prix grids as a front runner. Along with the FIA HTP paperwork ( completed in 2015 ), the Tyrrell comes with an extensive file of ownership and technical documents, as well as an historical dossier compiled by Allen Brown, which outlines this car’s racing and ownership history.
The Tyrrell racing Organisation,founded by Ken Tyrrell experienced great success in the early seventies winning three Drivers’ Championships and one Constructors’ Championship with Jackie Stewart. Following Stewart’s retirement at the end of 1973, Ken Tyrrell’s F1 team enjoyed continued success throughout the 1970s, winning races with Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler. Sponsorship from Candy Domestic Appliances during the 1979 season gave the team a financial boost which resulted in the Tyrrell 010, designed by Maurice Philippe which was to compete in the 1980 Grand Prix season. The 010, powered by the Ford-Cosworth DFV V8 made its debut in the third race of the 1980 season, in South Africa, where it was driven by Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jarier and Irish born Derek Daly.
At the Monaco round, this car, chassis 010/3, was involved in a famous racing incident where Daly and teammate Jarier collided at the start of the race, catapulting Daly and 010/3 into the air. The car was returned to the Tyrrell workshops for repairs, where it was rebuilt,with a new monocoque. The car continued to compete through the remainder of the 1980 season and into 1981, prior to the debut of its successor, the 011.
In total, this car competed in 17 Formula One Grand Prix and was driven by the likes of Derek Daly, Jean-Pierre Jarier, Eddie Cheever and Michele Alboreto, making his début in F1. Grand Prix highlights for 010/3 include two 5th place finishes with Jarier at the British and Dutch GPs in 1980 and another pair of 5th place finishes when driven by Cheever at the Long Beach GP and the Monaco GP in 1981.
At the end of the 1981 season, 010/3 was returned to Tyrrell, where it was completely rebuilt to original specifications and used as a show car for the team. In 1986, chassis 010/3 was loaned to the Donington Museum, where it was displayed in their famous Grand Prix Collection.
