Project GTS - Future NASA Race Car for John Smith Racing


We got a new (well, 20 year old) project car, a 1996 Mustang GT with the 248A (GTS) option. The plan is to use this car to race competitively in the Camaro-Mustang Challenge Class in the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) Southern California Region. This class is designed to be one of the more inexpensive and beginner classes. We are going to document everything we do with the car and how much it actually costs to go racing.

Follow along with FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.
