You’ve probably heard of the cars from Lola, March and especially Spice, but how about this one: Brun? Walter Brun had an eponymous racing team that even raced in Formula 1 as the latter half of the EuroBrun team.
When EuroBrun folded at the end of the 1990 season Brun concentrated on racing a Porsche 962 in the World Sportscar Championship with backing from Spanish oil giant Repsol. Keen to continue racing despite new rules that made the 962 obsolete, Repsol funded an in-house project to create a new car.
The result was the C91, with a high-revving 3.5-litre V8 engine from Judd in a very 962-inspired body. It was not any kind of success, never managing to finish a race in its one season of active motorsport.
Thankfully, that doesn’t mean there aren’t people who want to race a screaming Group C car with a Judd V8 engine, and so this one spends a lot of its time now in historic motorsport. As a result, we get to ride onboard with the very luck Alex Muller as he pedals the screaming C91 around Paul Ricard.
