The Ford GT-R was born in March 2006 when Doran Racing (from Grand-Am fame) designed and built a GT2 specification Ford GT. The chassis was modified with wider track, roll cage, race suspension and brakes and powered by a Roush Yates prepared 5.0 Litre engine with a six speed gearbox.
The bodywork has been replaced by carbon fibre components which include a front splitter and wide-body kit. The front and rear clip has been simplified, removing many of the shut-lines and separate panels. At the rear a large rear spoiler and Gurney Flap helps down-force.
Doran Racing built Chassis 2 for the Falken sponsored 'Black Swan Racing' team. The famous Falken livery, which started life in Japanese GT racing adorns the GT2 race-car.
