Mosler To Australia
This was a plan hatched at, or before, the Bathurst 24 Hours.

dailysportscar.comThe man managing the Rollcentre effort at that event, Ralf Rupprecht, told us then (in conversation with Martin Short): “I want to run a Mosler in the Nations Cup, but in fact we have three parties who want to run them. I want our car to be the official Mosler entry, with two others as the customer cars – but I need to talk to Mr. Mosler first! We’re pretty close to sorting out sponsors, drivers etc.”

Two months later and one Mosler is confirmed for the Nations Cup in Australia, with Dale Brede driving, entered by Rupprecht Motorsport – and a debut lined up for the opening meeting at Adelaide on March 18-21.

This is a brand new chassis, and it is expected to arrive in Australia by airfreight in the next fortnight. It was built at the Mosler facility in Florida, and is currently undergoing “detail completion” at Martin Short’s Rollcentre workshop in the UK.

Ross Palmer, Executive Chairman of Nations Cup and Bathurst 24-Hour organiser PROCAR Australia, welcomed the Mosler as another significant step in the growth of the series, which is about to start its fifth season. “Last year we had Peter Brock and two 7.0 litre Holden Monaros come into Nations Cup and now I’m very pleased to welcome Ralf Rupprecht Motorsport, Dale Brede and the fabulous Mosler MT900R.

“Ralf Rupprecht has advised PROCAR a second Mosler is a big chance,” continued Palmer, “and I’m expecting confirmation of at least two more new GT cars from other teams in the next few weeks.”

A Ferrari 550 perhaps?

“I am committed to doing everything in my power to ensure that Ralf and I give this car a winning debut season Down Under,” said Dale Brede.
