  • For sale in Canada: Two Saab 9-3 race cars and many parts by JL Racing


    If you always wanted your own Saab race car to play around with or participate in SCCA or other motor sport events, this may be your chance. JL Racing from Ontario, Canada is offering two Saab 9-3 for sale, together with many spare parts, engines and extra car body.

    I am not an expert in this field but it seems like the $46,000 asking price is pretty reasonable. JL Racing developed these cars with sponsoring from Saab Canada. More about the race history in the last few years can be found with Google Search on trollhattansaab.net here: link

    They have a website with complete details and many pictures about the complete package offered for sale: link
    It is also listed on eBay where the bidding starts at $20K. Bid to meet the reserve or use the Buy-it-Now and it is yours. eBay auction: link
    SaabsUnited reports this package was also offered for sale last year so apparently it is not that easy to sell.

    (White car #92) This car raced 4 years with several wins in the Canadian Touring Car Championship Series. This car was professionally prepared with Saab Factory Sponsorship. It was developed and raced by JRL Racing, Toronto and was very successfully campaigned by John Lockhart with multiple podiums. These cars can comply for SCCA Club Racing, NASA, Track Days and possibly other series that are looking to fill their race series.
    This is a video of the Saab 9-3 at the the Calabogie Motorsports Park near Ottawa, Ontario.

    The website Culture Garage has an interview with driver and team principal John Lockhart of Canada's JL Racing.

    John Lockhart: We knew the 9-3 had a lot of potential. It's a very well built car and an old saying I have used in describing the 9-3 as a race car is; "to build a great race car, first start with a great road car". In the 9-3's case this is exactly what you have. The platform is well constructed and very rigid. The suspension is well thought out, and the engine, well it has got to be one of the best 4 cylinder engines in the world today with out exception!
    This is a blog entry from their website from March 2010.

    If you’re wondering what happened to JL Racing here’s the story: For the past few years JL Racing has been competing in the Saab 9-3 in the Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship. However, with the current state of Saab and the incredible rise of Hyundai, JL Racing decided to take on a new partner with Bob Attrell who had been running two Hyundai Genesis Coupes in the same series. The new partnership has been named G1 Racing and the team will compete with three Hyundai Genesis Coupes this year.
