We’ve known RaceRoom Racing Experience (R3E) has been working on some new old school content (oxymoron) but now the breadth of that content is starting to become clearer. The clearer picture is thanks to the unveiling of the Chevrolet Monza Dekon, coming to R3E soon.
The 1975 Chevrolet Monza competed in IMSA’s GT Series in the AAGT class. Powered by a Corvette engine and sporting body panels that were far from stock (sans windshield, rear window and roof), the Monza’s took the fight to the Porsche Carreras, dominating the 1976-1977 seasons.
The Chevrolet Monza falls into an FIA classification of cars known as Group 5. R3E currently has two Group 5 cars, the BMW 320 Turbo and Zakspeed Capri, and now have two more coming in the form of the Fabcar 935 and Chevrolet Monza Dekon. Based off of the reserved post spaces on the Group 5 forum discussion, I’m sure we’ll be seeing at least a couple more cars to create a well rounded pack.
