Derek Gardner Passes Away

Project 34 – News

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to a motor racing legend

Derek Gardner died on the 7th January 2011 aged 79.

Despite not having updated this site for some time, it is my intention to keep the site, and thus Derek’s inspiration thinking alive for as long as i can.

This site has been on-line since 23rd January 2002 and has just recently had over 100,000 Hits. I hope that the site can continue to prove useful to anyone who has been similarly inspired by Derek’s out of the box thinking.

Peace to all – Jay

Project 34 – News

This Year marks the 30th anniversary of the P34 and what better weekend than the Monaco Grand Prix to remember that fact.

years ago the Tyrrall P34’s of Jody Scheckter (Car #3) and Patrick Depailler (Car #4) drove to finish on the podium in 2nd and 3rd place.

Last weekend, saw the 5th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique take place at the famous road circuit and history repeated its-self with two P34’s driven by Martin Stretton (Car #4) and Mauro Pane (Car #10) finishing on the podium !!

Martin Stretton won the 15 lap race in with a time of 30:22.44 while Mauro Pane finished in 3rd place with a gap of 1.894 seconds, just 250 thousands of a second behind Simon Hadfield in his PENSKE PC3 in 2nd place.

A most fitting tribute for the 30th anniversary of this amazing car I’m sure you will all agree.

You can find out more information on the race ( Race G ) and view some great pictures at the official Automobile Club de Monaco website :-
