GT Sprint Road Racer?

I AM NOT CONSIDERRING THIS CAR...just curious.

It is in serious need for some side intrusion caging, but is there anything stopping a legends car from running in sprints?

I am sure it would be a riot at Mosport, let alone Shannonville!

I don't think so. There was one running in GT Sprints a few years back, but I can't remember who was the driver.

I believe the driver's name was Cotton Mather. And he was fun to watch.

Yeah, that's him, that sucker was quick. I think he had a few reliability issues but I don't remember if he sorted them out.

Re: GT Sprint Road Racer?

great power to weight ratio...slick tires...sequential tranny...basic suspension setup in general.

pretty nimble in traffic I bet...shit we have "stock trucks" and "stock cars" out there why not a legend!

LOL...because it is a 1934 you could run it in vintage too!

Jason, Cotton`s car was modified out with a turbo V6 ran slicks and ussually showed up sundays to race and really was wicked fast when it was running right, most of his issuses were from fuel & the wrong oiling system.
