2003 Fabcar FDSC/03
Fabcar have been engineering both parts and cars for customers since 1977. One of their largest projects included manufacturing three Indianpolis cars for Linsey Hopkins.
The first ever Daytona Prototype was finished by Fabcar Engineering in late 2002. The first official test run was held on October 30th at the Daytona Speedway. Soon afterwards the car was approved by the Grand-Am Racing Association.
For $300 00 USD, Fabcar have offered their product to available race teams. The first chassis was sold to Brumos Porsche featuring a Flat-6, Porsche engine. Later cars were sold to Cegwa Sport to receive a Toyota 4.3-liter V8. Both the Toyota-driven and Porsche-driven cars will compete in the Grand-Am series.
Specification below is for the Porsche-engined Fabcar, chassis #001.
For the 2003 season, the Grand American Road Racing Association has a new class for prototype racecars. Consisting of current Sports Racing Prototypes (SRPII) and new Daytona Prototypes, this class will represent the fastest cars in the 2003 season.
At the center of the Daytona Prototypes will be a normally aspired six or eight cylinder engine. The framework around the engine is limited to a steel or aluminum in a tubular frame or semi-monocoque setup. The engine must be unstressed. A minimum weight restriction is set from 1975 pounds to 2050 pounds based on engine displacement.
