    John Morton to race 240Z in 2013 Runoffs

    The SCCA has invited all past Runoffs winners to run at this years event. Bonk Brothers Racing and LNA Enterprises are building a 240Z for John Morton to drive in E Production. John's winning of the National Championship in C Production in 1970 driving the BRE 240Z basically catapulted Datsun and the 240Z into the American sports car world. One could argue that he is at least partially responsible for the popularity of the 240Z and the existence of the Z car hobby today.

    It's expensive to build a new race car from scratch, especially from a 40-plus old car. Bonk Brothers needs everyone's help in financing the effort. Here's a link to their Facebook page, which has a link to the indiegogo fundraising site.

    Greg Ira has been keeping the Z car viable and competitive in E Production for several years. This year there will be a chance for 2 Z cars on the podium. Here's a link to the test session for the car at Road America weekend before last. The driver is Dan Meller, and his fast lap was only 3 seconds off the E Prod lap record. Not bad for a guy driving a brand new car.

    That's a sweet sounding engine.
