Six wheel racing cars attracted tremendous attention and interests
towards the end of the 1970s. The theory of the 6 wheel March was
that on conventional racing cars the large wheels at the back of
the car disturb the airflow around the rear of the car and create
'drag'. However, to reduce them in size would mean less tyre surface
in contact with the track and a corresponding reduction in road
holding and car control. March did reduce the wheels in size and
compensated for loss in tyre surface by having four rear wheels
instead of two!
