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 offered from G-force. With it's dihedral style sweep in the tops of the side pods, and signature triangular air box, it was easy to spot a G-force i na 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 lead 167 of the 200 laps. An interesting trivia fact is Montoya's race average was also 167 mph. Robby Buhl, driving the Purex car, also managed a race win in 2000, the first face of the year at Walt Disney in Orlando. While the G-Force enjoyed a good record for 2000, it was Buddy Lazier in a Dallara chassis who won the Season Championship.
This kit contains resin and white metal detail parts, a detailed cockpit and trans-axle, and decals for the 1999 500 winning car and the #24 car.
