Built by the Swiss team Rechsteiner Racing in Lausanne the Swica (SWIss CAr) raced in the 1985 French F3 Championship. Patron of the team Pierre Rechsteiner, a former F Ford driver, instigated the design of the VW powered car, the monocoque had an aluminium lower section with a carbon fibre upper section. Results weren’t good, best was a ninth at Pau for the experienced James Weaver, and the team reverted to running customer cars. For 1986 a, presumably, new design the 386 was raced in the Swiss F3 championship for at least part of the season by Jakob Bordoli. In 1987 a Swica 387 raced in the European Championship round at Silverstone in October, it finished 20th and last, it seems this was its only appearance outside the Swiss Championship.
