Nope. No race tracks down here. This is Richard & Yvonne Migliori's race car based out of Stockton California. I am building another car, but it is quite a ways out as far as turning a wheel on a track.
The new car, once completed, will be based out of another location up north where there are more tracks...unless something good materializes down here in SoCal, but that is unlikely given the current state of the economy.
We finished the car and are ready for our first test session on Friday! there is still a lot of little things to detail out, but decided to take advantage of a test day with Hooked on Driving. How many hours to build this car? I am glad you asked! I believe we just surpassed the 27,000 hour mark! ( over a five year period) In the last two weeks of preparation, we logged 810 hours of shop work! pictures to follow
Incredible work! I assume this is a track only GTM?
Yes this is a track only GTM. It is one of the first beta cars and as such was not ever really a production type GTM, but did originate with FFR. There have been a few changes made to it for safety purposes, but it still utilizes the basic FFR GTM design and platform.
Things are snow balling a bit with this car and team, and I expect you will be seeing and reading quite a bit more about it in the months to come.
