Gene campaigned the above car to the 1971 ARRC, finishing 2nd in the SCCA's SE Division to Jim Fitzgerald. At the ARRC he qualified the 2000 in pole position, ahead of Dave Frellsen and Bob McQueen, who finished third in SE. Duelling with McQueen, Gene span out of the race on the 4th lap, breaking the 2000's suspension.
Gene went on to greater things after his spell with the roadster. He is ranked second only to Al Holbert in Professional Road Racing, with 50 outright wins. Click here for Gene's racing record.
