WTAC 2024: 30TH - 31ST AUGUST

Sebastien Bourdais' 950HP Gold Coast Indy Winner confirmed for WTAC 2024!

Gearheads, history buffs, and racing aficionados, prepare to be transported back to a golden age of open-wheel racing! WTAC 2024 is thrilled to unveil a legendary machine that rewrote the record books – Sebastien Bourdais' championship-winning 2005 Champ Car, the awe-inspiring Newman-Haas Racing Lola B05/00. See it in action over both days at WTAC!

This isn't just a car; it's a time capsule of pure dominance. This very machine carried Bourdais to victory in 2005, etching his name into Champ Car history. Imagine the roar of the monstrous turbocharged 2.65L V8 engine, unleashing up to a staggering 950HP in earlier qualifying specifications. See the iconic red, white, and yellow livery streak past, a living testament to Bourdais' relentless pursuit of glory.

The B05/00's engineering prowess goes beyond mere dominance. This machine, considered the most highly developed Lola-era Champ Car chassis ever built, enjoyed an extended 14-month competition career. During that time, it racked up an impressive tally of 7 pole positions and 7 victories across the 2005 and 2006 seasons. A true champion, this car was the one that crossed the finish line first at the 2005 Lexmark Indy 300 Gold Coast race, a moment forever immortalized in Australian motorsport history.

Now, courtesy of Australian collector Jordan Roddy (@bespokemotorcars) and his passion for sharing these icons with enthusiasts, you have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to stand mere feet away from a legend for its brief visit to Australia before it returns to the US. Witness the technical marvel that powered Bourdais to an unforgettable championship run. Imagine the feeling of that engine reverberating through your chest as you get up close and personal with the car that left competitors in the dust.

The 2005 Champ Car B05/00 isn't just a car on display; it's a chance to walk through history alongside open-wheel racing legends. Don't miss this opportunity! Secure your tickets to WTAC 2024 today – they're going faster than a Bourdais qualifying lap! GET YOUR TICKETS HERE NOW!
