Vic Elford racing the Shadow at Mid-Ohio in 1970
In 1970 Don Nichols, founder of Advanced Vehicules Systenes (AVS) master-minded the AVS Shadow Mk1. Although the conventional “Chevy” big block engine was used everything else on the car was innovative. The fundamental design approach was to reduce aerodynamic drag hence increased velocity would be available. The minimal frontal area was achieved by using 17″ front tires making the car very distinctive. Unfortunately it struggled with handling, braking (smaller tires meant smaller brake rotors) and overheating problems. Depicted is the fast and experienced Vic Elford driving the car at Mid-Ohio in 1970
