    The rear quarter damage was done a while back while taking part in a closed road race on the 'Isle of Man' The car had a little brush with a stone wall at high speed! :drive:

    Yep, Nadine is in a class of her own, as you say 'a very special Pilot' Last year She also drove the ORECA 92 GTSR up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    Work in progress, I dont think its going to fit due to the way the rear suspension hangs off the engine, but Im sure Nadine will reveal all soon :)

    More detail: Kudos to Nadine !

    What a great idea ! A fellow Viper owner in Tucson has installed a motorcycle engine in an ex- Champ Car roller that he bought fairly reasonably. It makes a terrific sound and sight out on the track !
