RAM Racing was a Formula One racing team which competed during the racing seasons of 1976 to 1985. The team entered other manufacturers’ chassis from 1976 to 1980, then ran March’s team from 1981 to 1983, only entering a car entirely their own in 1984 and 1985.
1983 saw the RAM name make itself onto the chassis for the first time, with Dave Kelly’s RAM March 01 design. Salazar returned to drive the main entry, while a second car for Jean-Louis Schlesser was fielded at the French Grand Prix as a one-off. Salazar scored a 15th place in the season opener.
