Originally built as a March 813, chassis 4, it was sold to Paolo Pavanello’s Euroracing team in Italy and taken to the 1981 European title by Mauro Baldi. For the 1982 season, with March abandoning volume car production, Pavanello rebuilt his two 1981 cars into Euroracing 101, to be driven by Oscar Rubén Larrauri and Emanuele Pirro. Chassis 2 was assigned to Larrauri and he took the car to the 1982 European title.
