Carbir Race Cars joins list of approved Daytona Prototype chassis builders.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 5, 2002) -- Grand American Road Racing announced today that the Daytona Prototype chassis designs submitted by Carbir Race Cars have been approved for construction. Carbir Race Cars becomes the third constructor to have its designs approved, joining FABCAR Engineering and Doran Enterprises.

"Over the years, Carbir has been known for building very successful Sports 2000 and Formula Ford cars. We're glad to see them advance into the Rolex Sports Car Series with their Daytona Prototype designs," Daytona Prototypes Project Manager Mark Raffauf remarked.

"We are pleased to have our chassis designs approved on the first submission," noted Carbir President and Commerical Director Brian Utt. "We should begin construction of our first chassis in the next ten days and start preparing for wind tunnel work."

Utt reports that Carbir's Daytona Prototype designs are suited for any engine type, but he intends to build the first chassis to support a Chevy Corvette engine.

Carbir Race Cars was founded in 1995 by 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.
