Camel GT Pace Car

Camel GT Pace Car - SOLD

The Camel GT Pace Car was part of the Allan Robbins' collection like the other cars on this page. He sold the car to Adam Carolla, the celebrity Datsun car collector. The car was originally built by Bob Sharp to run in the IMSA GTU class in 1975 and was also used as the pace car for the series.
Sharp’s IMSA car and the pace car were essentially given the same set up. They got the same wing, huge flairs and G nose, along with a roll cage and fuel cell. The main difference was the pace car got a passenger seat for ride-alongs and they didn’t use race bushings on the suspension, so it would have a little smoother ride.

Paul Newman's 1986 Camaro started life as an Oldsmobile partial tube chassis and ran both a 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engine depending on the class it was running. The car was also driven for Newman-Sharp Racing by legendary NFL running back Walter Payton.
