A few words about the car:
This yellow car with black interior was raced in
the 1990 Escort Challenge Series by Bakeracing
(Kim Baker) and normally ran as the #5 car. It has
lightweight hood and 8 point roll cage. The car has
a number of modification done for that series.
The Corvette was bought from Kim Baker at the end
of the 1990 season and brought to Asia and ran it
in the Asian Super Car Challenge - a series that was
loosely based on street cars.
Bakeracing put the interior back in to the car, reinstalled
the windows and headlights and put the passenger seat
back in to the car. It ran in two races in 1991 (Bira
Circuit in Thailand and then Macau) and at the end
of 1991 returned to the US.
During the period 1992 - 1997 It raced in Norcal
SCCA Vintage Class and also ran it in a number of
Here's a message from the current owner:
"I bought one of Kim Baker's cars at the
end of the 1990 season. I brought it to Hong Kong
(where I was living at the time) and raced it in the
Asian Super Car Challenge in 1991. I then moved back
to the US in
1992 and brought the car with me.
I raced it with Nor Cal SCCA in the Vintage class
and also drove it in many Nor Cal Shelby Club open
tracks during the period 1992 - 1997.
I moved back to Hong Kong in 1998 and the car
was put into my Mom's garage (where it still remains).
I can send you a variety of information if you
are interested as well as pictures, but can only do
so in a few days. My computer is in for service and
all the information is on that laptop. I should get
it back by the weekend.
And just as an aside, the car is available for
sale if you know of anyone interested. I did see a
listing in the forum from "Big John" and
have replied to it, but feel free to pass my name
along to anyone else."
