Pedrazza Racing Cars - New Projects for 2006
“Back To The Roots“
Beginning with his first steps into competition
in 1972, Walter Pedrazza has been involved in international motor
racing for over three decades - as a driver, team owner, and constructor
of race cars. Pedrazza’s most notable success has come on
the mountains of Europe where he was a contender for the European
Hillclimb Championship throughout the 1980s and ‘90s, and
competitive national championships such as the German series, where
he is a two-time champion. As of 1990, Pedrazza has worked with
customers through his company Pedrazza Racing Cars (PRC); this was
also the year the first PRC built to FIA Group CN regulations made
2006, after several years of successful work for customers in hillclimbing
and circuit racing, the PRC marque itself is making a step back
into international competition, with two projects. German team JB-Racing
will have PRC factory support in its bid for the 2006 German Hillclimb
Championship, with a revised version of the current CN car, with
3 liter BMW power. The experience of recent years in Sports Car
Challenge competition has found its way into this car by the way
of numerous chassis and suspension improvements.
1997, PRC built the first Group CN car with 2 liter engine, and
set the trend for what has become this class of sportscar racing,
which has seen tremendous growth in recent years. The FIA itself
has since mandated a 2 liter capacity limit for CN cars, and grids
in CN-based series enjoy steady growth and a wide variety of manufacturers.
While in the ‘90s, the Opel/Vauxhall 2 liter engine was de
rigeur, Pedrazza Racing Cars’ latest variation on this theme
has a 4 cylinder Honda engine. The factory will campaign such a
car in international events.
On the racing
circuits of Europe, PRC racecars will also be making appearances
in the French VdeV series, and in Britsports in the UK.
