Sports Car DLM
#007: Mazda 3-rotor powered: Debuted Daytona
1996. Raced Le Mans 1996. Competed 1996-1998 by Downing/Atlanta
Racing. Currently owned by Dennis Spencer and raced by Trench
Shoring Racing. Converted to turbo Mazda 3-rotor power for
the 1999 Petit Le Mans. Severely damaged in testing at Roebling Road,
Georgia, late '99. Since rebuilt and campaigning in the Grand Am
SR2 category (now back to normally-aspirated 3-rotor power)).
#008: Buick V6: What is the official designation
of the Buick car? Dave Lynn, the car’s designer, has this to
say: “I tend to call that car a DLB (the B for Buick as opposed to the
M for Mazda) Jim [Downing] calls it a DLM-Buick”.
The Buick rear end assembly was ‘donated’ by chassis #004 (DG-2).
