GP Tens: Team Jesperson Transport Lorry & Triple Axle Special


During the fall Europe circuit races, Team Jesperson used this eight wheel, triple-axle transporter for hauling car and equipment from track to track all the way from Scotland down to Tunisia. While the driver, owner, and high level staff traveled by train, the mechanics and support staff packed gear and did the driving. The truck had the world's first mobile "outhouse," something of a luxury at the time for more remote racing venues. There was also a small private nap cabin for the driver to recharge after an exhausting event. The following season, after seeing the benefit of speed and organization of mobility, most well-funded teams followed suit with their own team transports.

  2. Nice! I really wish these GP Ten series were like toys or some kind of an animated short just to see them in action.

  4. Thank you MaPY! This size works good when your desk is covered with clutter. One needs only to clear away a few inches to work.
