The Tyrrell P34 (Project 34), commonly known as the “six-wheeler”, was a Formula One race car designed by Derek Gardner, Tyrrell’s chief designer. The car used four specially manufactured 10-inch diameter wheels and tyres at the front, with two ordinary-sized wheels at the back. The six-wheeled Tyrrell was one of the most radical entries ever to succeed in F1 competition and has been called the most recognizable design in the history of world motorsports.
The P34 was introduced in September 1975 and began racing in the 1976 season. It proved successful and in the hands of Jody Scheckter won the 1976 Grand Prix of Sweden leading a 1-2 finish for Tyrrell, the only victory for a six-wheeled car in Formula 1.
