The Ross Brawn-designed Arrows A10B Megatron was raced by Eddie Cheever during the 1988 Formula 1 season and finished 12th in the points. It is powered by a BMW turbocharged 1.5lt four cylinder engine that was rebadged as a Megatron, in the last season of the turbocharged era of the 1970s and 1980s.
Arrows placed fifth in the 1988 Formula 1 Constructors' World Championship, and Cheever's best result of the season was a third place at the 1988 Italian Grand Prix.
The Arrows Formula 1 was formed in 1978 and was active through to 2002 although it was known at Footwork from 1991-1996. Noted drivers besides Cheever that raced for the team include Riccardo Patrese, Jochen Mass, Alan Jones, Thierry Boutsen, Gerhard Berger, Dereck Warwick, Damon Hill and Jos Verstappen.
The team's first race of 382 starts was at the Brazilian Grand Prix with the best result of one pole position and five second places, the last at the Hungary in 1997.
