CRL Historic Race Sim Developments Proudly announces the release of the Shadow DN-6 Formula 5000 race car.

Designed by Tony Southgate, the new Shadow DN6 was very similar to the team's F1 cars of the day. The front half of the monocoque chassis could be carried over but a separate subframe had to added as the production-based V8 could not be used as a fully stressed member. At the start of the 1975 season, the F5000-specification of the Dodge V8 was not quite ready yet, so instead the first DN6 was fitted with a Chevy small-block. 1974 Can-Am Champion, Jackie Oliver raced a Shadow DN6 to second at the Road America round. For the final races of the year, the heavy but very powerful Dodge V8 was finally ready. The lengthy development showed as the Dodge-powered DN6 was instantly competitive. Oliver ended the year sixth in the championship.

The original model is based on the Shadow DN-5 1975 Formula 1 car, as was Don Nichols' original design. We used the Team CREW, DN-5 model converted for Assetto Corsa, and the engine from the Assetto Cora converted Team CREW Formula 5000 mod.

A huge thanks to Team CREW: BigFelix, Patjer, Slayer10, 3D Vince, T-Man and RichWard. Without your hard work none of these cars would be possible! Thanks to Bazza, Reutemann, Chiefwiggwum, and Dave Purdy for making it available for Assetto Corsa. Many thanks to the current owner of these cars Jim Bartel for putting on an amazing show at Road America for the Shadow 50th Anniversary inspiring this and all the Shadow projects from CRL in the coming months. A big shout out to Pete Lyons, whose book “SHADOW-The Magnificent Machines of a Man of Mystery” supplied an incredible resource for the history behind the cars.
