Well, it can be done. Will you provide the livery and helmet? The name of the pilot?

Background:

After the success achieved by Gulf's sponsorized cars in les 24 heures du Le Mans in late 60's the brand decided to get into F1 with a revolutionary car. Using their good relationship with Ford to take advantage, they bought the 4WD project but decided to run it with a more powerful engine, so they made a partnership with Maseratti in order to include their name on the team, use the great V12 engine they had, and the most important thing, use their pro-driver, one with a top carrer during late 50's and early 60's to create the impact: THE FORMER FERRARI DRIVER DINO FALCONETTI (See picture below). With this all, Gulf decided to get into the American GP to test their car and be able to decide what to do with the real target: THE 1970 FORMULA 1 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
Here I attach some papparazzi pictures took by the CORSA magazine in the Glen weeks before the GP:

Well I don't know the name, in the VEH file says Gulf Maseratti, but any volunteer who may think of a better name is welcomed to do so. The engime in graphics is a V8 because that's how it was modeled and I have no clue about that, but in the HDV I've modified it so it has de V12 maseratti and it's ratios.

I might write some more non racing episodes before Mexico GP to announce 1970 season, as I just did for the Team Vulkan. So, if you want to be included at this time, it is the good moment to give me your plans for 1970.

For Mexican GP, entry list is already full : the same as US GP, but Andretti who is replaced by John Miles.
