François Cevert's TYRRELL 006

A tribute to a great french Driver, François Cevert. The "prince" as people used to call him. François starts his pilot carrer brillantly, winning the "volant shell" french championship in 1966. In 1968 he is Formula 3 champion in his national championship. In 1969, he beats Jackie Stewart at the F2 Granp Prix de Reims. This day, he earned the interest of Ken Tyrrell. As Johnny Servoz-Gavin, who was Tyrrell driver, decided to give up competition, Ken Tyrrell proposed François to become second driver alongside Jackie Stewart. For 1970, the car was a March 701 chassis...waiting for real Tyrrell for 1971 season. He wins his first grand-prix at Watkins Glenn in 1971...a place that would be bounded to his destiny. Whereas 1972 season was not top for him and Tyrrell, 1973 season was really good. As Jackie Stewart had decided to stop competition in 1974, François would have been the leader of the Tyrrell crew. Unfortunately, François Cevert died at Watkins Glen during practice session of USA Grand Prix, 1973, October 6th at the age of 29. It was a real trauma for the world of F1 and France lost one of her best ambassadory. Countries need heroes, positiv icones you can identify to. François was this kind of guy. Pianist, Nice looking, Clever, Driver. It was the perfect Genleman, Gentleman Driver.
About this creation











Let's chat now about the car.

This is a lego 1:8 Tyrrell Ford 006. It's my first lego F1 since....22 or 23 years.
This car features:
- Steering
- Shocks on 4 wheels
- V8 engine/ differential
- Rear suspension completely reproduced.

It's numbered 8 cause it's my 8th big scale car (should have been numbered 6 but let's consider the car enter a new championship with François Cevert within it...a way to make him alive...anyway, legend never die).
Bulding this car was kinda moving. The idea came while i was building the 1973 Ferrari 312PB. Searching for information about 1973 racing seasons (in order to "dive" in the period), i found a lot of information about Matra, Tyrrell and of course François Cevert.
I was self conviced i had to make a tribute to him.

A great build. Deceptively large - it is only when you look up close you see all the clever technical functions. I am planning a very similar build myself bu a bit smaller. Really like this.
