2012 Boss 302 Mustang Being Raffled by International Motor Racing Research Center

Watkins Glen, is an amazing track in New York. This is the track where the Ford Mustang debuted to the public as concept in 1962. This track is also home to the International Motor Racing Research Center, a world class, motorsports archival museum that have chosen the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 as the prize for this year's raffle.

The 1962 Mustang stole the show at the 1962 US Grand Prix with Dan Gurney taking it around the track and, an injured, Stirling Moss starting the race. The 1962 model featured a V4 engine that was mounted midship, behind the 2-seater cabin. This concept had front-wheel discs, a roll-bar, magnesium wheels and front-wheel discs. The press said Ford was dipping a toe into the world of racing which was true at the time time since the GT40 was still two years away and Hank the Deuce was still negotiating with Enzo Ferrari to make the Italian automaker part fo Ford.

One year later the 1963 concept was unveiled at US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen and in 1964 a car virtually identical to the actual 1964.5 production car was there for race weekend.

The Center is supported entirely through donations and receives no government funding. The annual raffle is an important source of income for the center. The draw is December 1st for the Boss and only 1,962 tickets are available. They are priced at $60 for one or $100 for two.
