Carbir Race Cars Daytona Prototype bodywork approved for construction.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 9, 2002) -- Grand America Road Racing Association announced today that the bodywork designs submitted by Carbir Race Cars have been approved for construction. Carbir Race Cars becomes the fourth Daytona Prototype constructor to have its bodywork designs approved, joining FABCAR Engineering, Crawford Race Cars and Picchio SpA.

"Carbir was one of the first constructors to submit chassis designs for approval, and we're happy to see them take the next step with the introduction of their bodywork plans," Daytona Prototype Project Manager Mark Raffauf remarked. "With Carbir's past success in Sports 2000 and Formula Ford, it's good to see them advancing into the Rolex Series with their Daytona Prototype."

Carbir Race Cars had its Daytona Prototype chassis designs approved for construction in May.

Carbir Race Cars was founded in 1995 by Brian Utt and Carl Seaberg, who successfully introduced their Carbir CS2 to Sports 2000 competition. The car dominated the American City Racing League (ACRL) in 1997 and continues to do so today, finding its way to victory lane at nine of the 14 ACRL events last season. Carbir's DS3 Formula Ford 2000 has also claimed victory in the U.S. F2000 series, as well as back-to-back American Continental championships.
