As exciting as getting up close to a Le Mans prototype in action can be, imagine getting the chance to race against one–in real life, too. That’s exactly the opportunity awaiting you in this year’s Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge.

What is the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge? It’s our annual no-holds-barred track competition where the only rules are that car and driver must pass a NASA safety inspection.

Here’s a closer look at this week’s selections:

Clayton Eley’s 420-horsepower 2018 Ligier JS P3 is a genuine Le Mans prototype, built specifically to compete in LMP3 championships around the world.

Previous champion Brian Faessler is back with a stripped-out 2019 Shelby GT350R with custom suspension, extra-sticky Hoosier tires a big wing out back.

I just want to come so I can stare at the Ligier.  Convince them to remove covers so I can Geek out and all that. 

Next year..  ..
