There are lots of other pics, as well as diecasts and models of this particular car. It's definitely a lot faster than a go cart. a *lot* faster.

This particular car belongs to my wife's cousin, but there were several iterations/variations built over the years. It's a 1980s vehicle. A racing buff should recognize the livery, just by this shot. If I gave you a pic of the whole car it would give away what it is.

After 24 hours this car's driver is usually shaken, pretty dirty and probably not dry.

Oh, and I take back that this car is my wife's cousins. This car appears to be #4. He owns #5 and his dad owns #6. They race them quite often in Europe and the States.

It's been to Daytona, but it is not a Daytona prototype. The cars known these days as Daytona Prototypes started in the '90s and are some of the ugliest cars ever built. The France family *ruined* the Rolex 24 when they changed the rules to have the same body, different engine.

That said, the car *is* a prototype, and I believe it has been to Daytona, considering this cousin has been to Daytona in many different cars.
