Wil­liams FW11B Year: 1987

Motor Sport News - - World Rallycross -

The FW11B was a de­vel­op­ment of the suc­cess­ful 1986 car that should, tyre fail­ure aside, have taken Nigel Mansell to his first world crown. It was fit­ted with Honda’s RA167-E 60 de­gree V6 turbo which was highly fuel ef­fi­cient, and cru­cially, adopted the ac­tive sus­pen­sion con­cept later in the sea­son – even though Mansell was not a fan. Mansell won six times and Pi­quet three, but it was the Brazil­ian’s con­sis­tency – with seven sec­ond places – which landed him the crown.
