Riley Motorsports to build GT40 next generation.
« on: August 08, 2020, 07:09:27 AM »

No matter what we may personally feel about this venture I think it's cool and the background story of Bob Riley makes it even better.

Maybe I should read the entire article but wasn't Holman making continuation Mark IV's? What happened there?

Thought it was Kenny Thompson and Mike Teske that completed the continuation of the Mark IV's? .

It WAS at SAAC36, at VIR, as I walked around the corner from vendors row, there they were staring me in the face, a Mark II, a J car and a Mark IV. Kenny Thompson was one of the "constructors" there explaining  them.

I recsall the Mark IV was the only one that ran. The J car was a roller and the Mark II was on a trailer.

They were being offered for sale at around 995 each depending on the equipment and it was Lee Holman I was talking to about them and my C6FE aluminum427 heads and what they belonged on. So at that moment, it wasn't just limited to the MkII's.
