THE SHELBY CAN-AM

In 1990 Shelby returned to his racing roots and designed a Dodge-powered Can-Am spec race car. The cars were designed to be an inexpensive way for people to enter the racing scene. The chassis were built by Racefab Inc. of Rusk, Texas and housed a 3.3-liter 60-degree Dodge V6 in a special racing configuration making 255hp. Originally, the plan was to produce two versions of this car, with the 255hp version for the entry circuit and a significantly more powerful 500hp model for the brave. Since all the cars were identical, the winners were to be the people with the best talent, not the team with the most funding. The engines had Shelby seals on them ensuring that they could only be repaired by Shelby and that all the engines stayed mechanically identical.

The first race was a demonstration event during the SCCA National Championship Runoffs. The Shelby Can-Am class, and a pro series were launched by the SCCA in 1991. The pro series ran for six years.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Judge DiLoreto acquired this Shelby Can-Am Racing Single Seater soon after Shelby announced the new series in 1990. As personal friend of Carroll Shelby's; DiLoreto purchased the Can-Am directly from the Shelby American Works, and requested to receive chassis number 33, his favorite racing number. The Can-Am racer is finished in a red and white livery, topped by a blue rear wing. The Dodge V6 engine was prepared by Ed Pink in the past but has not seen track time for the past decade. When considering the Shelby Can-Am's incredible power to weight ratio, it is hard to think of a more enjoyable weekend track-toy.
