Panoz vintage racing Mosport/CTMP 2020
3 short clips, 1st from Panoz AiM, 2nd from competitor's bumper-mounted GoPro, 3rd from Panoz aim. Note high torque pump gas shell 91 hydraulic roller engine performance, shifted @ 6,200 to 6,500rpm. Small aerodynamic improvements are visible at high speed. Brakes are OEM Panoz Brembo, have 2 complete sets of new unused Coleman version of Brembo discs ($250/ disc versus $1,000/disc). Panoz was smart to use Coleman parts through out the car. Have not had time to consolidate videos from championship 2021 year, too busy restoring my Mustangs.
