Past Couple Months – Updates

Wow! We have had a very busy past couple of months. 2014 is turning out to be a great year for SACC Restorations.

We started the year with the re-development of a brand new product for the Pantera.

In late May, we held the Tech Session at the Pantera Owners Club of America’s Annual Fun Rally. The turnout was great and we debuted our brand new cable short shifter for the Pantera. The cable shifter is very smooth and offers a great improvement over the stock shifter. We will be selling the product very soon and we will have more details as it gets closer to sale.

Over the past month and a half we have been making lots of progress on the ZR1 Pantera. We received the dry sump oil tank, finished the oil system, and more. For more updates on the Pantera, check out our project site, www.zr1pantera.com.

Dan Wheldon
1978-2011

Today, Indycar lost a great driver. Dan Wheldon, age 33, passed away in a horrific 15 car crash today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Out of the 34 cars starting on this 1 1/2 mile oval, Dan Wheldon was starting 34th. Randy Bernard, the CEO of Indycar Racing League, offered a $5 million bonus to him that he was going to split with one lucky fan. By lap 12 he was up to 24th when everything went downhill. The number 17 of Wade Cunningham had contact with another car which ended up causing a chain reaction. Dan Wheldon went flying over Paul Tracy and into the catch fence. He was then airlifted to University Medical Center. He later passed away from unsurvivable injuries.

The 19 cars not involved in the crash then took a 5 lap tribute to the late Dan Wheldon in his honor.

He will be remembered as a great driver, a wonderful husband, and an even better father. Our thoughts go out to the whole Wheldon family on this extremely sad day.
