Grassroots Motorsports $2011 Challenge

From the NABMS email list:

"I went down to the Grassroots Motorsports $2011 Challenge this past weekend. I figured you guys might enjoy seeing some of the cars. For those not familiar with the event, you have to build a car for less then $2011 dollars (not including safety equipment) and run an autocross, drag run and concours. Unfortunately this year we were unable to run the drag race due to rain but 8 runs were done before the rain came including a VW Beetle which ran a 10.58 down the strip.

British cars at the GRM $2011 Challenge

The TR7 was running a Rover V8 with Nitrous, the MGB was mostly stock but with a Ford 4ltr 6 cylinder under the hood. The BMW 2002 had an E30 3-series swapped under it.

Mid-engine Toyota pickup

This pickup had a mid-engined Buick supercharged 6-cylinder

Wild Corvette

Georgia Tech's Miata

Lexus V8 with manually shifted automatic

Mid-engined Honda N600

180bhp in the middle of a 1200lb car looks a little exciting.

Winning car

BMW E30 3-series with Chevy LS motor

The Nelsen's Bug

The 10 second Bug which also got second in the autocross.

Top Finishing Car Club

The Shelby Dodge club brought this wicked little Dodge. The fender flares were made with filling cabinets.

The Concours winning car

This car may not look like much from a distance but the details were crazy. Every brakeline was polished, the paint was actually a rattle can job which had some much wet sanding it looked way better then most professional paint jobs. The judges said it could have won at Amelia Island nevermind the $2011 Challenge. It was also fast finishing 6th in the autocross.

Our team (Team Milton) finished 20th out of 42 and won the longest drive in a challenge car (most everyone else towed their cars)."
