Chevrolet Montana - from a Road Car to a Racecar 2004-01-3372

The compromise for a race car can be completely different from a road car and these differences become even greater when this car is a light pickup.
The target for a race car is to cover a determined distance in the shortest time and when this distance is a thousand miles, lap time is not the only objective. The compromise must include fuel consumption, tire wear, brake wear and even driver fatigue.
This paper describes the full preparation, from the production vehicle to the final race car, which has competed successfully in the Brazilian 2004 Mil Milhas.
