The Corvette Challenge race series existed for two years, started by John Power after the Corvette was banned by the SCCA showroom stock series because it won every race over a four year period. The Corvette Challenge Series offered an unheard of purse of one million dollars and that was what attracted many large name drivers and many new talents that went on to become highly successful. Because of the huge success and fans, ESPN broadcasted all 1989 races. Boris Said was the driver of car number 10, which helped him to become very successful at road racing, winning: multiple Trans-Am championships, raced at Lemans and also many times at Daytona, he is the only American to win the 24 hour at Nurburgring and also known as a Nascar ringer and Nascars favorite coach.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this Bloomington Gold Certified One of Twenty-Nine Corvette Challenge Cars produced. It is currently owned by the first registered owner of 26 years. This Vette was raced by Boris Said himself in all 12 races – he won the Mid-Ohio race and finished seventh overall in the series in this car. Was very lightly driven, the odometer shows just a tad over 8,000 miles. This extremely well done and special Corvette would make a perfect track car or a great addition to any collection. A full race conversion was done to these Corvettes, including a full roll cage, full fire system, challenge race car seats, five point seat belt setup, brake cooling ducts, competition exhaust (straight pipes with side exit), an oil cooler, Dymag magnesium wheels, and many more great specs. This is truly a can't miss opportunity for any Boris Said fan, collector of unique and exclusive vehicles, or just someone looking for a reliable and great track car, please call for the full details.
