Protoform LTC-R signals the End of an Era?

Protoform LTC-R signals the End of an Era?

Protoform were in contact to inform us of a milestone event that happened at last months Reedy Race of Champions in California. For approximately 10 years now every winner of every world class electric sedan event has seen the A-Main winning car donning some sort of Dodge Stratus or Mazda 6 style of race body. This decade old winning streak seems to have finally ended as Ronald Volker not only TQ’ed but won the RROC using a body that looked more like that of a Lexus IS-F. This year’s Reedy USA event was the first major event for the recently introduced Protoform LTC-R race body. Hupo Honigl backed up the bodies performance by finishing an excellent 4th place overall. Ronald’s big win at the Reedy Race is in fact something that’s starting to look like a bit of a tradition when it comes to the debuting of all-new Protoform sedan bodies. Barry Baker debuted the game changing Protoform Mazda 6 at the Reedy Race in Thailand with a win in 2004 and a couple of years later Craig Drescher won the Reedy Race in southern California while debuting the then all-new Protoform Dodge Stratus 3.0 race body.
