GM Announces Customer GTO.R Details
Customer versions of the Pontiac GTO.R race cars that successfully debuted in this year's GT class of the Grand American Rolex Series are now being offered for sale by GM Racing. Identical to the #64 and #65 Pontiac GTO.Rs that TRG campaigned in the latter half of the 2005 season of the Rolex Series, the cars will be deliverable by December 16th, 2005 and will be available for the Test Days at Daytona International Speedway January 4 through 7, 2006.
"The Pontiac GTO.R has firmly established itself as a strong competitor in the GT class of the Rolex Series," said Mark Kent, director of GM Racing. "After entering the series mid-season, the two TRG cars scored four wins, three additional podium finishes and two poles in eight races.
"We're now offering this winning car to teams at prices comparable to those of other GT class race cars - which means significantly less than comparable professional standard race cars in other series," Kent said. "The Grand American Series concept and rules not only provide extremely close and competitive racing but also enable us to offer this GTO.R package as the basis of a remarkably cost-effective race season for a professional team."
A complete vehicle (excluding engine management and data system) will be offered to customer teams for $275,000 with a required spares package (suspension, body and driveline components) for an additional $100,000.
