In October of 1986, this was 1 of 3 (#3) factory sealed cars in Sweden. It was brought over to the famed Talladega Speedway in Alabama. These three cars, over the course of 20 days, set 21 world and international speed and endurance records with an average speed of 133 MPH (215 kph), covering 60,000 miles (100,000 km). This became known as ‘THE LONG RUN’. This is the actual #3 car, and Tom actually drove it on Talladega Speedway back in 2016 without escort. Tom says the first time you hit a 33 degree banked turn…Your body lets you know it!
