Spire GTR

 

 

Paul Heavey purchased the Spire GTR in 2008, primarily as a track day car but also for use during sponsor events. He went so far as to race the car in the Phoenix Park races and All Comers events at Mondello Park, in which he recorded the cars first Irish win.

 

The chassis kit was supplied by Spire Sportscars, a UK manufacturer and is eligible for the 750 Motor Clubs Road Going Bike engined (RGB) class. That's correct, stick a set of lights, reg plate and insurance on this car and it can be driven on the road!
