Bino Mark I numbers 21 & 22 from Equipe Willys.
The three original and unique cars made in 1967, were a development of the Alpine A108 called Interlagos, by the winner team "Equipe Willys", made in Brazil, with stronger engines (using all the european well successful physics from the french Alpine 1300 S), and beautiful bodies, under a design of the italian Toni Bianco, who design a lot of sport cars in his brasilian life.
It was called Bino Mark I. It won almost all races that it participated in Brasil, been one of the fastest cars at that time, racing against Simca Abarth, Porsche 356/911, Alfa GTA, Lotus 47, Ford Cortina and many other small cars from that time.
The creator of Equipe Willys years before (Bino Heinz), was a famous driver called Christian Heinz (nicked name as Bino), who died in "24 Heurs du Mans du 1963", driving for the official Renault France Team (Societe Automobile Alpine), in a Alpine A210 M63, #48, when his car crashed and burned at the end of Mulsanne straight, trying to dodge a car accident with 4 other cars. He was 28 years old at that time.
The mainly Bino's drivers in Brasil, were #21 (Carlos Pace) and #22 (Wilson Fittipaldi), although these cars were raced for Team Willys by various drivers including Emerson Fittipaldi . These 3 guys become F1 drivers years later. Unfortunately Carlos Pace died in an aircraft accident whilst driving for the Brabham F1 Team but Emerson became twice F1 world champion and twice winner of Indianapolis 500.
These 3 cars were known as "Bino MKI " in honour of Christian "Bino" Heinz.
