used to accurately
describe the Panoz DP01 car used by an obscure insignificant club racing series
funded by its owners known as the Champ Car World Series
. Said car frequently broke down, suffered
leaks, and injured Paul Tracy when it barely tapped a wall at only 30 mph. So destructive were these cars that the series
within a year
and teams had to be given
cars and money to be able
to continue racing. Only one such machine is known to be in running order.
A small, annoying band of masochistic, hermit racing fans
of the failed venture choose to erroneously
apply to Indycars, which by comparison are faster, safer, and more entertaining.
