Every student’s ‘learning laboratory’ is an authentic 5.0-liter race car…a high-performance Panoz GT-RA!
Climb into the cockpit of your 5-liter learning lab. The Panoz GT-RA is an authentic REAL race car in all respects and the only purpose-built GT racing sports car being used in a racing school anywhere in the world.
By learning and actually racing the Panoz GT-RA in both school competition and advanced instruction, students experience the thrill of real-life challenges presented by today’s competition courses.
The Panoz GT-RA takes its inspiration from the Panoz world racing experience (La Mans and American Le Mans Series) as well as the Panoz Esperante Coupe, Panoz GTR-1 and Panoz LMP class Roadster S.
This is not a converted-from-production model. The 2500-pound, two-seat Panoz GT-RA was built from the ground-up to be a legitimate, competitive race car.
Panoz GT-RA technical features *(detailed in the chart below) include a tube-frame with full race suspension and specially prepared, 250 hp, 5.0-liter Ford V8 powerplant, double A-arm front suspension, coil-over shocks and live-axle Ford rearend with four-link suspension.
Every student’s car is prepared by Panoz Racing School technicians.
