Chaparral 2J @ 2005 Monterey Historics
Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005 Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the bass note of the Chevy V8. Phil Hill & Jim Hall are driving two of the other Chaparrals.

Brabham BT46B Fan Car in a BBC 4 Documentary About Gordon Murray
Clip from the BBC Four documentary "How to Go faster and Influence People: The Gordon Murray F1 Story" featuring Murrays Design for the Brabham BT46B Fan Car. The full documentary is here: Some more clips from older documentarties are here: From the original BBC description: "It's 1978 and the world of F1 is gathered at Anderstorp for the Swedish Grand Prix. Bernie Ecclestone's Brabham team is causing a commotion in the pit lane with its new car. Brabham's brilliant young designer Gordon Murray has stuck an eighteen inch diameter fan on the back of the car -- ostensibly to cool the engine, but with the crucial side effect of sucking the car to the road. As Murray recalls; 'The Fan Car went round hairpin bends as fast as 150 mph bends. It had a massive advantage.' Brabham's rivals, from Colin Chapman and Mario Andretti to Niki Lauda and Ronnie Peterson, are outraged -- but the Fan Car races on." Source:
