Hi All:

Just saw a photo of the Hypersport Exige from the 2009 PRI on Chase Cam's stand in the 3/2009 "Racecar Engineering" magazine. Is there any news on this or is it a china egg?

Hypersport's Exige should be running in the World SPEED challenge events.

Best know as McDreamy's team.

I was HELLA excited till they canceled the Detroit Grand Prix. I was hoping to see it here for the SPEED event.

News is the car is running and it undergoing final tuning to extract more power from it!

Apparently it was "only" putting out 350HP so it still needs some final tweaking. :eek: :nanner2::shift:

I'm starting to doubt this car will ever see competition... anybody know when it's proclaimed debut will be for the 2009 schedule? I'm hoping it's Long Beach so I can see it in person.

Putting a car into competition requires various things to fall into place. In the case of the Hypersport car, the car was supposed to be ready, but who is driving it? Who is paying for it?

I'm willing to give a go at driving it if you are willing to give a go at paying for it!

(the first part is a seriously bad idea lol)

I think the second part is an even worse idea if you are driving :D

I stood next to it Saturday evening. Quite an effort, sure looks muscled. About time there was a serious Lotus racing in the US.

It's undergoing final dyno tuning. For the first two races of the World Challenge Series its being used under a rental basis. After these two races Kurt will be bringing it to LOG 29 for display and the Monday HPDE. Possibly run it during the NASA race over the weekend.

Link for the race at Sebring
SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge

You will be able to see the entry list (not up yet) and also keep track of real time results.

I will be there working with SCCA and SPEED TV. Anyone need a room?
