NASA Great Lakes 2014 Performance Touring C Championship Winner
Track Records: Road America PTC 2.41.87 Pitt Race PTC 1.08.09
History: This car was built in 2005 in California for NASA CMC1 competition. It raced one partial season in CA and then was sold in 2008 to an HPDE driver in the Washington DC area where it saw only one HPDE weekend’s use. It then sat from 2008-2013. In 2013, I purchased the car and completely restored and rebuilt – no item was left untouched; every part on the car is new in 2013 or 2014. Additional upgrades and improvements made over 2014 winter.
Bill of Sale only – no title for a race car. Have Bill of Sale history that goes with car.
