Back to the Future: URC is Can Am revisited.
No, you are not looking at an early 70's Mclaren Can Am car. The visual cues are all the, open cockpit, batwings, tall boy velocity stacks, big displacement Chevy lump but what you are looking at is a brand new spec racer.
IMSA and ALMS have announced that a new series will be part of selected race week ends, Unlimited Racing Championship (URC) is aiming to give race fans some of the flavor of the classic big displacement racing of that golden age.
The car looks like the classic beasts of the era but is built to modern safety standards along with some "conveniences" such as scalable traction control. The NeuArt Can Am is available for purchase from Southwestern Performance but also as a turnkey arrive and drive package, complete with crew.
The formula chosen, which boils down to cool looks, big motor, manual H pattern box, crappy brakes, aims to put on a good show for the crowd. We look forward to it!
