Maki History & Team Record

An ambitious F1 project that originally hoped to be an all-Japanese contender (chassis, engine and drivers). Sponsorship and development needs however led to the team using the tried and trusted Ford Cosworth DFV engine and employing European drivers. 
American Howden Ganley debuted the car at the 1974 British GP but failed to qualify the suffered a suspension failure during qualifying for the German GP (at the infamous Nurburgring) causing Ganley to have a huge accident. The team reappeared in 1975 with a revised version of the car but failed to qualify for any of the 5 races that it entered (the car did manage to race at the non-championship Swiss GP).  One final attempt was made to qualify for the 1976 Japanese GP but when this was unsuccessful the team was dissolved. Designer Masao Ono went on to design a slightly more successful car for the Kojima team.
