#134 POLISTIL – TYRRELL 011 and WILLIAMS FW 08C (RN 21, RN 22) (1982)

As a continuation of an old entry talking about some Polistil F1s, I bring two more cars made by the Italian company at more or less the same time.
The first car is the Tyrrell 011 Benetton, that took part in the championships from 1981 to 1983. In the 1981 season it replaced the 010 after 9 races, and in 1983, it was replaced by the 012 after 10 races. This model was driven by Michele Alboreto (number 3) in 1982.

The second car in this entry is a Williams FW 08C, also from 1983. There is something wrong with this car, and is that the cast represents the model from 1983, but the race number from 1982. Number 6 was driven by Keke Rosberg in 1982. With that car, he won the championships, so the right race number would be number 1. In 1983 he didn’t that well and ended 5th.
