Holley EFI Improving An Icon

The "Big Red Camaro" is like no other race car. In it's 30 year career, it has competed in the La Carrera race in Mexico, the Silver State race in Nevada, the world famous Salt Flats of Bonneville, the treacherous Pikes Peak Hill Climb in the Rocky Mountains, or the flat-out speed of the Mojave Mile to name a few. In 1989 at the age of only 19, owner and driver RJ Gottlieb had already set records at two Open Road Racing events: La Carrera Classica and the Silver State Classic Challenge which earned him the dubious title, “The Fastest Teenager in the World.” Given the cars history, Big Red might possibly be the most unique, and diverse race car out there.

 

RJ Gottlieb; " It was built for La Carrera road race, but once we beat all the exotic European cars, they banned us – that's why we started calling it an 'outlaw car' in the first place."

 

The legendary car has since been equipped with a Holley EFI system and  the crew has nothing but great things to say about it. They've recently tested it at Pikes Peak in altitudes around 11,000 feet and will soon be in the Mohave Desert hoping to achieve speeds around 260 to 265.

 

"When I was a kid, Holley was always the name in carburetors, and now it's the name for EFI. I'd always been a carb guy and always loved Holley 4-barrels, but this Holley EFI is unbelievable. It worked flawlessly, right from the beginning. It's sophisticated but it's easy to use, and it gives the car exactly what it needs at all times. "
