A few words about the car from the current owner:

1989 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ID # 1G1YY2184K5110110 1 OF 30 Made, only 27 still exist. Car # 1 from the Texas American Race Team was driven by the 1988 Corvette Challenge Series Winner, Stu Hayner. This car has the on-board computer system that was installed by GM. This car also comes with full documentation to include certificate of title, window price sheet, certification race history and other documentation. It has been restored to original race condition with correct race graphics. This car was formerly owned by Mark Martinís Classik Auto Museum, Daytona Beach Florida.

Other interesting facts:

  • The car that ran 2 races by Stu Hayner was in the Las Vegas Collection for a few years.
  • Stu Hayner won the 1988 Corvette Challenge Series running the number 98 car in that series, it was requested by the 1989 sponsors to change to #1.
  • From Walt Thurn 1/22/2007: "I think Hayner crashed his first 89 car at Dallas which is why the team built the second car. The first car was named "Flipper" by the crew because Stu ran over a tire that came off of another car and it rolled over onto the catch fence. Stu was unhurt but the team sold the car to another competitor who rebuilt it and raced it at the last race in Sebring. Peter Lockhart spun out by Al Lang field in the #11 car and "Flipper" torpedoed Lockhart in the drivers door. "Flipper" received extensive front end damage and had to be towed back to the pits."
