Each year, the International Motor Racing Research Center raffles a significant car as a major fundraiser. Over the years, many of the vehicles have been donated by generous friends of the Center.
This year’s raffle car was a 2017 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works. The winning ticket was drawn on Sept. 10 at Watkins Glen International. The winner was Larry Kessler of Webster, NY. We sincerely thank everyone who supported the work of the Center by purchasing raffle tickets.
Past raffle cars have included a 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi, 2013 Boss Mustang 302, 1967 Bullitt Mustang, Cobra replica, 1967 E-type Jag Series 1, 1981 Porsche 911SC and 2001 Porsche Carrera 4 Cabriolet. The 2015 raffle car was a 2015 Toyota Camry XSE V-6, donated to the Center by Toyota North America. The 2016 raffle car was a Mazda MX-5 Miata Club, donated by Mazda North American Operations.
The 2013 raffle of a 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi caught the attention of The New York Times. Read the story here.
