About

This purpose build race car has a long racing history but it was "retired" in a racers garage for the past 3 years...I found it in a race car garage in Denver, Colorado, and fell in love with it. Had to have it. Having been a kart racer for a few years (Rotax Masters Class) it was time to move to a bigger toy, and this was just the ticket.

The car is a modified Lola (chassis and uprights). It used to be a Formula Continental or Formula Ford. It was converted to race in the DSR class (D Sports Racer). The rear engine cradle was modified to fit a 900-1000cc motorcycle engine, as dictated by this class. It is powered by a Honda 900RR engine generating approx 165hp.It has 6 speeds sequential gearbox. With the right gearing it can reach 160mph, given its light weight, approx 900lbs.

It used to have all analog gauges, but I've updated to Mychron Car 3 Plus digital data acquisition system.


I have spent considerable amount of time and money fixing up and reinforcing the body work.

This has a long standing problem of being "light" on the front at high speeds. I've had a specialist design and build the black deflector/spliter you see on the nose of the car. It totally fixed that tendency and the car sticks like clue in high speeds.

It looks and drives great now. Currently racing it at the newest track in the US, the 4.5 miles long, state of the art, Miller Motorsports Park, in Tooele (near Salt Lake City) Utah (www.millermotorsportspark.com).
