This car was a new build about 8 years ago but was only raced twice by Rick Lofgren in Norcal. I rented this car last minute for Thunderhill in the 2017 NASA Western States Championships and finished 3rd after starting last.

The car was then purchased by me and a group of fellow PCA drivers to race in Luckydog endurance races in California. With a group of rookie drivers we had 4 podiums and 2 wins in Luckydog. We had one DFN at a 24 hour race at Buttonwillow but still finished 4th overall and 2nd in class. We lead overall for many hours during that race.

This car has proven to be very reliable and fast. Hands down has the best brakes I have ever seen in a spec car.
