Some interesting history. I purchased the car from Mike King, North East Region SCCA. He would periododically road race with Paul Newman (Same region). On Paul's 79 birthday (He always raced his age as his number) he asked Mike to retire his number for the year. First event in 2011 netted us a first place in Concord, NC.
