car description

Description: We have the pleasure to offer for sale the ex-Riccardo Patrese 1980 Arrows A3 chassis #3. The Arrows Grand Prix International team, based in Milton Keynes (UK), was founded in 1977 by Italian financier Franco Ambrosio, Jackie Oliver, Dave Wass and Tony Southgate (from whose surnames' initials the team took its name) when Rees, Oliver, Wass and Southgate left the Shadow team together with young and up-coming Italian driver Riccardo Patrese . In chassis #3 Riccardo did the entire 1980 and 1981 F1 seasons and achieved the best ever race results for the Arrows team including (amongst others) 2nd overall at the 1980 US West GP, fastest lap at the Monaco GP and pole position at the 1981 Long Beach Grand Prix. During the 1980 season, A3/3 ran in its well known and fabulous looking gold Warsteiner livery (with Penthouse and Rizla as additional sponsors) while – for the 1981 season – a sponsorship deal was struck with Italian Ceramiche Ragno and Utili Beta of Milan. When Arrows moved on to the A4 design for the 1982 season, they sold three of the A3s to wheeler-dealer John harper and retained Patrese's car #3 for display at the factory. When Arrows was sold, the A3 passed into
