Elmer Racing in Kirkkonummi, Finland are building an Opel GT called “ER8” to compete in World Time Attack Challenge. The race car will feature a circuit racing version of their Thor billet 4.0 L inline-four and custom turbocharger making around 1,500 horsepower. The team will use their custom X-EMS One system to control the engine, transmission, and active ride height. The car will also feature a rear mounted drag transmission to handle the tremendous power levels. Currently the project is at NeniFab to receive chassis work.

    I hope they have good contact with the ruling body. WTAC has very loose rules, but I wonder if “scratchbuild engine from billed block of alu” is part of it. I mean you can’t just enter a GT3 class car on street tires either.. or can you?
