So you want to go racing? For starters, you’re going to need a race car. Then add in a trailer, a pit vehicle and a radio for communication between team and driver.

If that sounds like a lot of things to buy separately, why not buy it all at once?

This seller on Facebook Marketplace is offering up a Mazda Miata prepped for ChampCar, plus a trailer, a gas-powered golf cart and an in-car coms system with 3 radios for the crew–meaning all you’ll need to do is provide the crew.

Located in Casselberry, Florida, the whole lot is listed at $30,000.

I’m sure I have photos of this car at Daytona.

Good luck at that price.


I just sold my race winning (overall, not class) champcar with everything including fuel jugs and an open trailer for 10k.  Took a year to sell...


I'm glad it's gonna be out of my life, but wish I could've got more monies.

That price seems like he's being told to sell it so he's "trying" but nobody will bite.

Lots like a bad deal offered by a low effort seller.

I thought it was just my perception that the price was too high, but my reaction was that it should include the truck for 30k. 

that would make it truly a turnkey operation.
