Restored Minardi hits the track

A restored 1992 Minardi F1 car completed a twenty-lap shakedown at Italy’s Cremona Circuit earlier this week.

The restoration of the V12 Lamborghini-powered M191B was done as part of Lamborghini’s Polo Storico programme, which aims to preserve the Italian marque’s history.

“Seeing the models of 25 or 30 years ago is still exciting,” commented Minardi founder, Giancarlo Minardi.

Lamborghini supplied engines to four teams between 1989 and 1993.
