2000 G-Force GF-05 Model Car Kit, 1/25 Scale
2000 saw the introduction of the second generation of the IRL style chassis for the season. At the beginning of the year, Dallara, Riley & Scott, and G-Force all built cars. By far the most distinctive, and perhaps one of the most distinctive Indy cars in years, was the G-force GF-05. With the dihedral-style sweep of the tops of the side pods and signature triangular air box, it was easy to spot a G-force in a field of cars. It was also easy to spot Juan Montoya in the running of the 84th Indianapolis 500, particularly because he spent so much time leading the race! In fact, he led 167 of the 200 laps. (Interesting trivia fact: Montoya's race average was also 167 mph.) Robby Buhl, driving the Purex car, also managed a race win in 2000, the first race of the year at Walt Disney World in Orlando. While the G-Force enjoyed a good record for 2000, it was Buddy Lazier driving a Dallara chassis who won the Season Championship.
Kit includes resin casting and white metal detail parts, a detailed cockpit and transaxle, and decals for both the 1999 Indy 500 winning car and the #24 car.
