The 1976 DSC Motorsports Team car has been released for F1 Challenge. This download require the F1-Seven 1975 and GFX 1976 mods to be installed first.



Presenting the DSC Motorsports team of 1977.


1. Driver and Owner Nicholas Cole was ever-present, leading the charge in the #60 DSC M02B-Cosworth. This car dealt with the flyaway races in the Americas at the beginning of the season. Eagle Star, an insurance company also based in Sutton, England, continue their partnership, whilst Castrol remain the team's title sponsor.

2. A high-downforce wing was introduced for Monaco, and was used at select races afterwards.

3. Introduced in time for the French grand Prix, a new nose and wing assembly helped lift performance on the faster tracks making up most of the latter season. It was with this car that Cole took a stunning 3rd in the Italian Grand Prix, a high point, but also the only points-score recorded all season for the #60.



Joining Cole were three other drivers, in the #62 M02B car.


1. Rupert Keegan competed in the first 4 races, on-loan from Hesketh Racing who skipped the races in the Americas in order to concentrate on the start of the European Season. Fast but ultimately fragile, Keegan retired in all 4 races.

2. 1976 DSC driver Bob Evans rejoined the team in Spain, and would continue to drive for the rest of the season. Whilst also suffering from reliability problems and recording 7 retirements, he also managed two 6th places, in Monaco and in Italy, capping off DSC's best race performance to date.

3. Taking the place of Bob Evans for the final race at Fuji was 1976 Japanese grand Prix standout Masahiro Hasemi. After impressing for Kojima before ultimately finishing 11th, Hasemi again proved a capable driver around the Fuji Speedway, finishing 8th.




The car can be downloaded from the Downloads Section.
