I've been searching high and low for F1 cars in 1/87.
Shape ways.com makes the F1 cars from 1976 but you have to paint them and make decals if you can't paint the logos. I have a friend who could do it for €20 for each car, so that would be too expensive, so the search went on.
Here at bgg I found another F1 game called Racing Simulator RS18....and it has 1/87 metal F1 cars.....wouw, and for €54 plus postage you get 18 (!) cars without buying the whole game!
And you can get 'decals' from the 2014 and 2015 for free - just download it from the website. And 2016 should come right after the first race in Australia.
Website: http://racingsimulator.votreboutiquepro.net/racing-simulator...

Now I just need to find someone with a 3D printer who can make some drivers for the cars.

I assume you are purchasing two for the RS 9 Packs. I wonder how their game system is?

I wrote to them and asked for 9 teams with two cars each without buying the game. I have so many racing games that I didn't feel like buying another that would only stay on a shelf.
There are some videos on their website but sadly it's in French and I only know jambon, fromage, baguette from my Le Mams trips.
But you can download the rules in English on the website r here at bgg.

Yes, but that's not 6 teams with two cars each.

Got my 18 F1 cars (1/87 scale) today......
Actually they are keyrings....but still perfect for our enlarged circuits as you can see!





Just need to figure out how I can get a driver in the cockpit and then add some decals!

Did some more work on the Farrari's
I printed the decals on a piece of paper, cut them to size and glue them on the cars.

WIP - my first six F1 teams coming along just fine


Front row from left: Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull
Back row from left: Williams, Toro Rosso and Haas

Just need to do three more teams - Renault (yellow), McLaren (black) and Sauber (blue). Not sure if I need to make the Force India team or the Manor team.

Either with Green Stuff or with a 3D pen I've just bought.

I'm surprised to see you haven't cut the key chain loops off.

I thought about it, but 1) they are metal and 2) I recon I could use it for a color code for the robots and to mark ones team cars, so players know which car they control and which is their team mate.
And I think the device holds the rear wing in place.

Did some 'drivers' with Milliput (Green stuff).
Not bad even though they don't have the same size or height.

I like the idea of putting a marker in the hole in the back to note the type of robot in play.

Yes, a pin marker in the color black, yellow or purple, so we know how far to move the robots.
Could also do color codes for each player and his car, like red, blue, white, green and so on.
The team mate robot just gets the black or yellow after hat we decide.
I've bought a 3D pen, so perhaps I can use it to make the markers.

No, they are too big.
They are 1/87 scale approx.
Yes, You need to upscale the circuits for these cars.
But that's no problem, files have been provided for this.

Right now my group are using 1/87 DTM metal cars.
You can find pictures in my gallery or in this thread: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/22362736#22362736
