I don’t mean let’s allow Formula 1 cars to be driven from one’s organic coffee shop to the pedicurist. No, I mean let’s build more race cars that can be driven on the streets, sort like rally cars are. I’m not sure if all, but most rally cars have to be street legal because they have to be driven on public roads between the various stages of rally race event.
The above video is supposedly of James Glickenhaus driving off in the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003. There would be almost nothing unusual about that if it wasn’t for the fact that this New York plated car just got done racing 24 Hours Nürburgring. It finished ninth overall after being as high as second overall.
Let that sink in. Jim is doing a nine hour drive in a car that just finished the grueling 24-hour endurance race at the world’s craziest race track.
Like the SCG 003, those race cars I’m thinking of would be required to meet only the minimal requirements – lights, horn, license plates, etc. Just for the fun of it, they should meet emissions of some state with lax, but not none, emission laws. Drive it to the track, race it, drive it home. Imagine Kyle Busch driving home from Charlotte Motor Speedway in his Camry – how cool would that be?
