The Birth of a Race Car

We apologize for the time it takes to load these pictures, but it IS a photo gallery, so we have to be patient!

 

 

Inside the R2K as it's being stripped and fitted with roll cage and seat.

Many thanks to Gene and Jimmy Self of Leslie, GA for their excellent work in safety and strength for our car!  Never ending thanks to John's brother Banks for his assistance, his patience and his elbow grease!  Banks also races at the Cordele Motor Speedway, in the Mini Stock Class, car #2.

 

Every good race car deserves a good paint job, and this is just the beginning for R2K. 

From a sanded gray to a fresh white coat, the little Volkswagen still had his street tires for the first race or two.
