Re: The Essential GT Car List

I had to look and see, because i had never paid that much attention, but redsun1 is right about the camaro. The '69 Camaro z28 RM in the game is a '68. It's not a 67 because it don't have the little triangle windows coming off the a pillar. And it's not a 69 because it don't have the horisontal body line that follows the top of the wheel well on the front fender.

We have been complaining amongst ourselves since the game dropped, about the "combo-year Camaro RM"

Just a (somewhat) friendly reminder...

 

Anything NOT posted in the proper format will NOT be considered for the voting process.

 

(...this is now officially confirmed by SWERV, so it's no longer just "opinion"... Cat Wink...)

 

Also, please keep discussions to a minimum... Voting threads will be created for everyone to discuss what they think about this or that car. Please save the "I don't care for" and "I'd rather see a" posts for the vote threads. This thread is for car nominations for vote consideration of the cars you want to see. We do want your input, your thoughts and your wants, but PLEASE save the discussions and opinions for the voting threads.

 

Provided all goes as planned. We are possibly looking at a first round legacy vote early August, so it won't long before you can post opinions to your hearts content without any issues there. Oz makes that call, so make it easy for him... Smiley Wink

 

Thanks to everyone for understanding and keeping this thread as clean as possible for Oz to maintain.

The idea behind this was to have a lower tier open wheel class car like the GP2 or GP3 cars that most F1 drivers get their training on. The US connection was important but also the Mazda association seemed to make it fit well in the game.

Manufacturer:  Dallara

Car:  SP1, Doran Racing Dallara-Judd '02

Race Series:  Grand American Road Racing Championship

Historical Significance:  Last true prototype to win Daytona 24hr.  "Following Dallara's work in constructing the Toyota GT-One in 1998, Audi R8R in 1999, and Audi R8 in 2000, the company decided to use their expertise to develop their own Le Mans Prototype for the LMP900 class in 2001, specifically for use by customer teams as an alternative to the factory-backed efforts."  The original customer/partner in development was Chrysler, which was looking to expand their LeMans program after success with the Viper.  After Chrysler withdrew from the program, chassis #DO 001 was purchased by Doran Racing.  The Chrysler 6.0 L V8 was replaced with a Judd V10, making approx 700 bhp / 375 ft lbs.  This car met with success in the Grand Am championship, winning 4 races in 2002, including the 24 hrs of Daytona.  It has the [arguable] distinction of being the last "true" prototype to take a victory in the historic Daytona race. 

 

When rules changes in Grand Am made the car ineligible, Doran Racing turned its efforts to the American LeMans Series, which was just then coming under the dominance of Audi Team Joest Racing and the mighty R8.  The Dallara-Judd, while considered an underdog at best, was one of the few privateer run cars with the speed to potentially offer a serious challenge to the Audi factory juggernaut.  Oh sure, Cadillac offered some resistance with its Northstar LMP; but it was unspoken knowledge in the paddocks at the time that Cadillac was just not willing/able to commit the money and resources that were really needed to effectively beat the Audis.  From personal experience -  I can recall hearing one team principal [can't remember which team] in the paddocks at Petit LeMans: "Cadillac?  Those guys might as well just be throwing money in a hole."  Again, while it may not have been able to notch any victories in ALMS competition, Kevin Doran's Dallara did provide racing fans with an underdog to root for, and offer a glimmer of hope that privateer teams could [almost] stand a chance in the top echelons of American sports car racing, and run with the factory "big boys."
