Panoz GT-WC at Motorsports Ranch Houston: Clockwise
Panoz GT-WC at Motorsports Ranch Houston: Clockwise direction (backwards).
This was my first day in the car and first time running the track in this
direction, which is lots of fun and maybe even more fun than
Harris Hill Road (H2R) in a Panoz GTRA
A couple of laps in the Panoz at the Harris Hill Road track in San Marcos,
TX (between Austin and San Antonio). I have a bunch of cleaner laps than
these, but they tend to make boring videos, so here are the laps with a few
The Panoz GTRA is a tube-chassis race car developed by the Panoz folk at
Road Atlanta (hence the RA in GTRA). Pretty much an early 90s Mustang drivetrain (302 + Tremec + 9"
rear-end) in a chassis that likes corners, with a fiberglass body. It
weighs about 2600lbs, and puts out about 230 HP, so it's a lot like a Miata
with an Adam's Apple - more chassis than horsepower.
Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans
I film the all-new, limited edition Panoz Abruzzi Spirit Of Le Mans at it's
North American debut during the 2010 Petit Le Mans endurance race at Road
Atlanta. Besides possibly being the most evil-looking production car ever,
it is also a technological marvel. I am pleased to present the first full
video of this car on youtube.
The Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans consists of only 81 examples, which in 2013
represents the number of 24 Hours of Le Mans races since the event's
inception in 1923. All of the Spirit of Le Mans editions will be sold in
Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The Corvette ZR1's V8 engine is used to
produce over 600 hp in the Abruzzi, which, like every other Panoz, is
handbuilt in Hoschton, Georgia. In addition to the mammoth power and torque
from the LS9, the car is super light and super strong, being the first road
car built with the new REAMS material, which is stronger and lighter than
carbon fiber. I could go on about all of the incredible details
incorporated into this car, but I'll let the car speak for itself. :)

Very rare Panoz Esperante GT1 & others
The only road-legal prototype in the world. Only two were ever made. The
Esperante GT1 is the road legal version of the GTR-1, and was made to meet
Behind the GT1 you can see a GTR-1.
Thanks for watching.
