Ralt RT31 #719 F3 ex Roland Ratzenberger
Complete, bare-tub-up restoration of the Ratzenberger car (chassis RT31:719) was completed by the seller in late 2019, and has been actively raced since then with the Masters Historic Racing's Formula Atlantic Plus group, with CSRG (N. California) in their FA/FSV Group 7, at the Weathertech/Brian Redman Road America event last summer, and once as a FA with SF Region of SCCA (car now has an SCCA logbook!). Total running time since the restoration was completed is 16 hours, and full, pre-season prep of the car has just been completed in anticipation of the 2022 season (it IS ready to race!).
RT31:719 was owned and run by West Surrey Racing in the '87 Lucas British F3 Championship, and driven by the late Roland Ratzenberger with sponsorship from ATS Wheels. As presented, the car is exactly as it was when he raced it, with the exception of the EFI induction system being replaced with twin Weber 48DCOE carbs. The original EFI manifold, linkage, and electronics are included in the sale. The yellow color on the bodywork is the original yellow gel-coat, with one or two small pieces having been painted over the years. The restoration included x-ray inspection and re-plating in satin nickel of all the suspension, magnaflux of all uprights and new bearings in all, entirely fresh Ron Hendrix-built VW 1.8 engine with over 220hp on the Mike Pierce-rebuilt Hendrix Weber carbs, Hewland MkV 5-speed w/ spare ratios and cam-and-pawl LS diff, new shift linkage with fresh Apex joints, new top-quality Tefzel/Raychem wiring loom by Shippert Racing, original, fully functional Stack tach and complimentary (but not original) Racetech mechanical gauges, billet distributor by S. Jennings Racing w/MSD pickup, new Varley Red Top 30 battery, 2 sets original Dymag wheels re-finished/mag-chromated by Childs Motorsports, all new hydraulics with mostly-Goodridge plumbing, and 100% new AN bolts and nuts. New FIA fuel cell and Facet pump, plus much more.
This car is available at US$ 55,000 to include the spare set of uprights and all 4 corners worth of spare wishbones with it. Would also include the few spare Hewland Mk5 gearsets I have, and two complete sets of re-finished, original Dymag wheels. One EFI fuel injection manifold and original electronics for same so it could be converted back to original Euro-UK F3 spec.
Available to view in Monterey, CA.
