Racing on the edge as Kevin would say, Patrick Gearing lifting the inside front wheel a good six inches clear of the tarmac. (Ok so its not a transaxle, but still fun.)

Dorino Trecani in the Trepal Engineering car, this was the last GTV6 to race in Stanic Production Cars, after Group One was discontinued in 1985.
