    I used a Sauro canvas to use the same measures of the model. I forgott to clean the references.

    Van Hool VHM-001

    Van Hool VHM-001 (a fake F1 project) Van Hool is a well-known coachbuilder around the world. Back in the 1970’s many big companies tried their luck, in several motorsport series. By offering drivers, sponsoring or they entered with their own team. Van Hool came in 1975 with their own Formula Two car. Alain Siccardi designed the Van Hool VHM (Van Hool Marcel) that year in Spain. Two chassis, the VHM-001 and the VHM-002, where built in the van Hool factory in Saragossa in Spain. The VHM-001 is the only chassis that made his debute in the F2. In 1976, the team debuted the VHM-001 during the Jim Clark Trophy at Hockenheim. The car was fitted with a BMW Engine and Bernard de Dryver was the driver. With a time of 2m 9.400s de Dyver didn’t manage to qualify the car for the race. The car was never seen in the F2 again. The VHM had similarities with a Formula One car from that era, and it created a couple of years ago the false rumour that Van Hool was to enter the Formula One in 1975 with the VHM. The whereabouts of both cars is unknown. The VHM-001 has done some hill climb races, and was sold to some one else. What happened with the VHM-002 is a big mystery. Probably it got sold or destroyed.

    It´s a fine artwork but I think the data are not totally precise. The Williams FW07B begun running at the Belgium GP (may, 4th, 1980) and stopped at the South Africa GP (febr. 2nd 1981). However continue with your fine artwork. It's really good.

    Could Ekström have been any team? No, it was to be born under the command of a woman, Cecilia Ekström, and her team debuted in 1986. Ekström had already worked on the marketing of other teams, but it did not work out for her. Because she was a woman, Ekström had difficulty getting sponsorships, she talked to British American Tobacco (BAT, the same one she created years later at BAR) and Fleur de Santè. As no one put faith in her project, she ended up failing, firing all the officials and even not paying the team's phone bills. It looked like the team would have finished in 1986, but she tried to buy the Haas Lola spoiler, but it did not work out and Cecilia Ekström never went back to Formula 1 again.

    At the end of 1973, we began to think big, that is, Formula 1. Nicha Cabral talks about it in her biography, even getting money transfers to London, in the sense of payments for the construction of a chassis. I think it would be Chevron to build this probably conventional chassis with the Cosworth DFV engine, as was customary in the 1970s, as it is a cheap and reliable unit. However, the military coup of April 25, 1974, which overthrew the current dictatorship, caused social unrest, leading to the nationalization of banks in March of the following year after a coup attempt. There, the project died, but two people, José Megre and "Bravo Marinho" - who graduated from Team Lotus - decided to revive the project in mid-1976 to debut in 1977 . No models, never tried to build the car. There was something that would condemn the project almost at birth: the solo effect. In 1977, models like the Lotus 78 already explored more concretely this concept and began to result. Even with such a car on the track and the project continued in 1978, they would have to build a ground-effect car as fast as possible, otherwise they would immediately fall behind as many teams did at that time ...

    For those who do not know the reason for this project, it has to go to the beginning of the 70's, when a group of enthusiasts decided to build a team to run in Endurance, with the support of a local bank called BIP - Banco Intercontinental Portuguese, founded by Jorge de Brito, who years later, between 1991 and 93, would become president of Benfica. This team, Team BIP, buys a Lola T272 and achieves outstanding results in European circuits such as Vila Real and Spa-Francochamps, piloted by people like Mario de Araujo Cabral, the popular "Nicha", Carlos Gaspar and Carlos Santos.
