|Vic Elford was, and
probably still is, a very versitile driver. Rally, road, endurance,
anything with four wheels. But for many fans of American racing
he is the driver of the Chaparral 2J. Vic Elford's own web
site is here. Here he is being interviewed by Stirling Moss,
the greatest driver to race Formula 1 and never win the championaship.
||The Chaparral 2J. The
protrusions at the rear of the car are fans that forced air out
from under the car. Giving the car incredible down-force. This enabled
it to drive through the turns much faster than any car then and
probably now. The sliding Lexan skirts were said to have violated
the "moveable aerodynamic device" ban (same rule that
ended the use of wings.) Jim Hall, owner of the Chaparral team,
quit racing because of this.
