Ecurie Espadon, which later became Scuderia Espadon, is a Swiss motor racing team founded in 1948 by driver Rudi Fischer. The team notably took part in eight Formula 1 world championship Grand Prix between 1951 and 1953. Ecurie Espadon, founded by Swiss racing driver Rudi Fischer, is made up of a group of six Swiss amateur racers. The name "stable" was used when the team was founded because most of the cars used were French, mainly Gordinis. Later when the team used Italian cars, mainly Ferraris, the team name was changed to "Scuderia".

In 1951, the team acquired two Ferraris: a Ferrari 212 (chassis 110) and a Ferrari 125. The 212 ran until 1953, the year in which the sporting adventure of Scuderia Espadon ended. In 1952, a Ferrari 500 (chassis 184) was purchased and allowed Rudi Fischer to score points in the world championship thanks to two podiums obtained in 1952 at the Swiss Grand Prix and German Grand Prix 1 .

Rudi Fischer drove the Ferrari 212 during the 1951 season, taking part in fifteen events, including several Formula 1 world championship and non-championship Grand Prix. In 1952, the regulations of the Formula 1 world championship changed in favor of Formula 2, and Scuderia Espadon took advantage of this supremacy to shine in the championship thanks to the Ferrari 500, Peter Hirt taking the wheel of the Ferrari 212. He didnt obtain at the wheel no results, the car being overtaken by the competition. Hans Stuck piloted the 212 in three events in September.

Rudi Fischer began the season with a second place for his National Grand Prix, then finished third at the Nürburgring . In Formula 2, Rudi Fischer allows Scuderia Espadon to win two events, the Eifelrennen and the Avus.
