Chassis: 701/1
This is the first March Formula 1 car constructed and was raced exclusively in 1970 by works driver Chris Amon. The 'Kiwi' drove chassis 701/01 to victory in the International Trophy at Silverstone. Early in 1971, Derek Bell had a single outing in the car before it was retired from service. It was subsequently sold to Tom Wheatcroft and it spent several decades on the wall at his Donnington Grand Prix Collection. In 2010, the car was sold to the current owner, who appropriately hails from New Zeeland. Chassis 701/01 was restored to full running order for the 2012 Monaco Historic Grand Prix. The owner set the fastest lap in qualifying but a crash in his final flying lap prevented him from taking part of the race.
