owners as a track race car. This 911 coupe originally came from New
Jersey as a low mileage race car owned by a PCA driving
In 2010 the car was purchased by a racer from El Paso Texas. The car was very competitive and one of the best handling cars in Redline Racing’s stable. She was able to pull corners on the track at 1.6 Gs and capable of braking at 1.6 Gs. Upgrades were constantly done to the car.
The last owner Owen Gibson of T2V Racing and Restoration purchased the car from Redline Racing out of Texas in 2016. T2V Racing continued with racing the car at NASA events until it was purchased by the current owner in April 2018. Records back to 2007 show some of the build and maintenance history of this car.
In 2018 the car was brought to Redline Service where it was completely disassembled down to the bare chassis.
