Ronnie Peterson in Italy

F1 wizard Gordon Murray reinterpreted the 2J's innovation for one race in the 1978 season with the Brabham BT46B. A huge fan driven off the gearbox sucked the car to the ground and allowed drivers to corner at virtually any speed they wanted.

Whenever we see No. 3 slapped on the side of a Formula 1 car, it's the 1976 Swedish Grand Prix that comes to mind. Though he hated the car (and quit Tyrrell after the season), Jody Scheckter became the only driver to win a GP piloting a six-wheel car. One of motorsport's truly bizarre moments and one of our favorites.
