The CodeBlue/Tax-Whistleblower.com Racing Team competes in wheel to wheel sports car , rally, touring car and stock car racing throughout the Eastern United States. The primary events that we are currently involved with are:
We run our supercharged Lotus Elise in the Targa Newfoundland, which is a ~1400 mile long rally race on public streets around the island of Newfoundland in Canada. There are only a few events like this still being around the world (no more Targa Florio, Carrera Panamericana or Mille Miglia due to the dangers involved, only this event and the Australian Targa series survive with a non-vintage format.
Lotus Cup – Legendary sports car manufacturer Group Lotus PLC sanctions a worldwide racing series open to all Lotus owners and their Elises, Exiges, Evoras and 2-Elevens. In 2011 we were on top of the points results for the Lotus Cup USA East Coast series.
NASA Spec E30 Racing Series - In 2013 the CodeBlue/Tax-Whistleblower.com Racing Team started wheel to wheel racing in the NASA sanctioned Spec E30 Series. This series is designed to be a place for drivers to race identical 1987-1992 BMW 325is race cars so that driver skill is the most important factor in a race. The BMW Spec E30 has a nearly stock 6 cylinder power train, a 5 speed transmission, full roll cage, safety harness, fire system, racing seat, window net, kill switches, and other performance modifications that are required to wheel to wheel race in the NASA sanctioned Spec E30 racing series.
ChumpCar World Series - ChumpCar is North America's home for having fun endurance road racing equally inexpensive cars. These endurance races range from 7-hours to 25-hours long. This series is for gear-heads; for people who love driving and driving fast, but don’t care so much about how they look doing it. MAD Motorsports has built us an E30 BMW 318 for this series.
NASA Time Trials - For several years we have been traveling all over the US to compete in this National auto competition program, utilizing Regional series based on a time trial style format, with rules that establish car classifications to provide a contest of driver skill. The best part about the NASA Time Trial series is that any closed-wheel street or race car can be used to compete in this series. We are currently using our Penske NASCAR in the “TTU” class.
FARA Racing Series - We race both our Penske NASCAR and our BMW E30's with this Miami based organization that sanctions races for amateur and experienced drivers in a wide range of cars with a class structure based on engine displacement.
