The only two teams I can think of named after drivers post 77 were Prost and Rebaque. Prost never drove his own car but I know Hector Rebaque built a psuedo Lotus 79 which he drove and failed to qualify in either later 78 or late 79 (I can't remember which?) So my next guess is that:
Well done C_A_T, it is indeed Hector Alonso Rebaque. He ran Lotus cars in his own team but eventually had Penske build a car for him (partly designed by John Barnard according to one article I read) which, strangely, looked a lot like the Lotus 79! It ran for 3 whole races.
