Following the untimely death of our first Maserati BiTurbo it was time for Best Bad Idea 2.0!

Watkins Glen has lots of walls.

The new car, also a 1987, lived a previous life as a show car. It also came with a few period-correct modifications that should help us be more competitive. Plus, it looks pretty rad
