Description

For sale is a retired World Challenge Touring Car. This car was Jeff Altenberg's first ride at Tripoint (car 40) while his Mazda6 (car 72) was under construction. When Tri-Point finished the Mazda6 this Protégé was sold to Elder/Brenner racing where Christian Elder was the driver (car 21). When Christian moved on to Formula Mazda I purchased the car and brought it to California. I've owned the car for 3 years and because of annual deployments to the middle-east have been unable to enjoy this car. It has not seen a track since the Elders last raced it in Puerto Rico. It would be perfect for NASA TC & USTCC as well as time attack and with some tuning maybe even drag racing. Who knows, but there are lots of opportunities to race these retired machines. There is still a team racing these Protégés in SPEED World Challenge but it would require a bit of money to make this package competitive against the Tri-Point Mazda 6s. So here's the history on this car since I purchased it. Blacktrax did over $4000 of work on the motor in late 2006 and during the last week of December 07 TriPoint went over the car and I paid $3500 to tune and prep the car. It could still use some work to make it better but I've decided to instead sell or trade it because it won't stack inside my new transporter. So it's up for sale. I also have an extensive spares package for sale separately at $6K (engine long block, mazdaspeed turbo, Tilton clutches, diffs, Alcon Hawk brake pads, bearings, carbon fiber dash, new slicks & new Rota race wheels). I've already replaced this car so it needs to go so I can make room. I need & would trade it (or a MIG21 600 Mongol B) for a period correct engine package to fit a 1999 Champ Car SWIFT 010c (CART). I also need & will purchase any spares for a SWIFT 010c (shocks, springs, brakes, wheels, etc).
