It's interesting that March hedged their bet when they introduced the March 711. Ronnie Peterson's car had a Cosworth DFV engine (pictured in Dennis' post), whilst team mate Andrea de Adamich's car had an Alfa Romeo engine.

That Scalextric body looks like a 711 with a 721X rear-end. Here are some profile drawings of the 711 / 721:

March 721X


A strange variant of the March 711 was the 1972 "Eifelland".

Gunther Henerici, a German businessman, wanted to go racing in the early 1970s and to that end he bought a March 721 and had aerodynamicist Lutz Colani play with the design. The result was the unusual looking Eifelland - named for Henerici's caravan company. Rolf Stommelen tried hard for the team and managed to finish in six out of eight attempts.





Kind regards
