The March 84G Chevrolet is, arguably, the best of the Adrian Newey-designed March GTP Sports Prototypes of its era. Only seven 84G models were built. Chassis number '84G-05', fitted with a Chevrolet engine, was delivered new at the beginning of the 1984 season to John Kalagian in the USA. A well-known privateer, Kalagian raced the March in many events, including the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours, until mid-1985 when he sold it back to the March factory having bought a new 85G model. During this period, Kalagian scored some excellent results with '84G-05' including a 2nd overall at the Watkins Glen 500 Kilometres (see table below). 1984: 08/7: Watkins Glen 6 Hours: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 39th NR 29/7: Portland 3 Hours: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 7th 05/8: Sears Point 100 Miles: Kalagian, #15; 15th NR 26/8: Road America 500 Miles: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 21st NR 09/9: Pocono 500 Kilometres: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 23rd NR 16/9: Michigan 500 Kilometres: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 4th 30/9: Watkins Glen 500 Kilometres 2: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 2nd 26/9: Daytona Finale: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 26th NR 1985: 02-03/2: Daytona 24 Hours: Kalagian/Lloyd/Grunnah, #15; 32nd NR 24/02: Miami GP 3 Hours: Kalagian/Lloyd, #15; 5th 23/03: Sebring 12 Hours: Kalagian/Lloyd/Grunnah, #15; 27th NR '84G-05' was then acquired by another privateer, Bill McDill, and fitted with a Buick engine. McDill and Juckette competed in the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours in 1988 before putting the car in storage. Still painted in its last-race-of-1988 livery, the March was offered for sale by Jim Torres in the early 2000s and was bought by a British enthusiast. The latter brought the car to the UK where a full restoration was carried out, including the fitting of an original-type Chevrolet engine. However, it was painted in the wrong livery (like the March that was raced by Emerson Fittipaldi at the Miami GP in 1985, a different chassis). '84G-05' ran in this form at the Le Mans Classic support race in 2008. Subsequently, the March was acquired by a noted collector, who had it fully restored again in 2017 at Phil Stott Motorsport, the famous UK-based Group C specialists. The rebuild included fitting a brand new fuel injection system; a complete crack test; and installing a brand new custom-made fuel cell. Lastly, the car was repainted in its correct livery as used at the 1985 Daytona 24 Hours, when it carried competitor number '15'. '84G-05' is now ready to race again. It comes with a comprehensive spares package that includes eight spare wheels, a refuelling rig, a set of body moulds, a spare set of bodywork, and various boxes of assorted engine, suspension, and exhaust parts. Another important factor for the future owner is that '84G-05' also comes with two large folders containing numerous period documents such as letters, race programmes, photographs, etc. New FIA HTP papers have just been issued. This is a unique opportunity to acquire an affordable GTP Sports Prototype ready to be enjoyed at a variety of the most prestigious events; indeed, last year this March was invited to attend the exhibition of Adrian Newey cars at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Possessing documented in-period race history, this fully restored March 84G is an opportunity not to be missed.
