Jim Hall is a Texan and hall of fame *wildcatter* in the racing car fields. Now 76 years old, he is the famed builder of the winged Chaparral race cars, a former Indy-car owner, pioneering aerodynamicist, and wayback in the day even an F1 driver for Lotus.

Hall’s Chaparral series of cars, whether prototypes or Indy cars, were so outside of the box, many of his designs ended up being banned. Too revolutionary! 

Saturday, March 21 at the 12 hours of Sebring, his son, Jim Hall Jr., will power up the Chaparral 2… 50 years after winning at Sebring in 1965. If you can be there to witness this event, please share the joy by sending us your smartphone video at hello@automotive-art.com

We’ll post it right here!
