    Welcome to the forum, Owain.

    Looking at this question,another way - It's funny how success turns an "average looking" car into a good-looking one, isn't it?

    Indeed but you could argue that they, and of course, Jackie Stewart, laid the foundations of what would become a dominant force in the shape of Red Bull.

    Thanks chaps - it's nice to be here.

    The last Arrows cars were very neat too: the 1998 (with Arrows' own engine) was sharp in styling and jet black, while those of 1999-2002 gained an orange-and-black livery that was very striking, courtesy of their sponsor.

    I saw one on show at Gloucester rugby ground, because Tom Walkinshaw owned Gloucester RFC for a while.

    Welcome Owain. I have to agree about the Arrows cars. In am era where cars were becoming quite similar the Arrows of their later years really stood out.

    Anyhow, on the racing front, drivers using them took 1st through 5th in the 1981 IMSA Camel GT (GTO) Series. And BMW 1st, 3rd and 3rd in the '81- '83 IMSA GTO Makes Championship using them. That isn't rubbish to me.
