Default Daytona Prototypes

Not sure if anybody here watches U.S. Road Racing on TV.....yesterday was a Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series race at VIR. The Daytona Prototype cars had a large field and some very good fender to fender racing. This is basically the top series of road racing in the U.S.

We tried real hard to reflect the look of the Daytona Prototypes for Touring cars with our MX-P Daytona Prototype body. If anyone is interested, here are a few pictures...

I hated the DP series when it started but the last couple of years have provided some of the hardest road racing you will ever see in the states. Reminds of British TC racing. Very enjoyable, especially at VIR where the only way to pass is a banzai move.
