Racecars from work: the GTO World Challenge GT cars

Recommended Posts

Time to liven up this forum...

Back in 2006-2008, my Employers, the Scarallo family, raced in the SCCA Speed World Challenge GT series as a privateer team. Joey Scarallo Jr drove the GTO, and hung with the best in the series, and even beat them. But SCCA kept adding weight to their GTO, and little by little, he wasn't competitive anymore. Factory teams don't keep silent about a privately funded small race team spanking their unlimited budget GT cars. By 2008 he wasn't even a top five car anymore, and they were losing money, so they pulled out of the series. They had two GTOs, one left alone (retired) and one modified for an unlimited GT class after getting out of the WCGT series (Circuit Battles)

The retired GTO.

It's three piece Fiske wheels, six pot Alcon TA6 calipers out front, MB4 Alcon four pots out back.

The sister unlimited car, currently getting work. New steering rack, new LSx race motor rated at 780HP according to the engine shop, new front splitter, and new sets of Hooser slicks for the red/black Fiske three piece wheels (MASSIVE width)

Little update on the black GTO:

The new LSx motor is in, and the splitter is just about done. The new rack is in as well.

Better look at the Alcon TA6 six pot brakes and two piece rotors. 13" rotors IIRC. Big bastards.

Let me know if there is anything for the GTO floating around that I can snag up. :D

Not much to scrounge, Mark. :lol: these tube frame GTOs only look like the road cars. Maybe engine parts, because I know those race heads do work with an LS2 with supporting mods (cam, headers, tune, etc) but you're talking $2K for a set. :lol:

I have the LS1, but if you guys get any 243 heads (stock on the LS2) sitting around that you'll end up getting rid of, let me know, they work great on the LS1. :D

They do sell off parts they don't need on eBay all the time. They also have a bunch of OEM wheels lying around from cars they flipped from auctions. There's a set of 17" OEM GTO wheels in black in the shop from that silver GTO.

Also, car pr0n tiem:

The GTO's engine is all hooked up, and 90% of the fluids are in.

Today, just minor things. I'm actually busy making it pretty again (I'm on lunch now :lol:)

The other car they're bringing, their C6 WCGT car, not making as much power as the GTO, but still a quick GT car.

Like the GTO, its body is all 100% carbon fiber. Every panel is paper light.
