1983 March 832

The March 832 was created in 1983 and used in Formula 2 competition. Power was provided by BMW and the design was courtesy of Ralph Bellamy. A few of the cars were later converted into CanAm cars for competition in the under 2-liter category.

For the 1983 Formula 2 season, Onyx Racing finished third in points with Bepe Gabbiani driving. Fellow Onyx teammates, Christian Danner, Thierry Tassin, and Dave Scott finished in 5th, 7th and 17th respectively.

SAR finished in 20, 22, and 23 with their March.

The Onyx team was formed by Mike Earle and Jo Chamberlain, which began racing in Formula 2 and later to Formula 3000 and eventually switched to Formula One. While in F2, they took over the factory works team for March near the close of the formula's existence. They were in Formula 3000 for a short time before they were able to secure funding to field a Alan Jenkins designed car powered by a Cosworth engine. During the teams F1 endeavors, they participated in 26 Grand Prix races, each time fielding two cars for a total of 52 entries. Stefan Johansson was able to score one podium finish and earned 6 championship points.
