The new turnkey GR40 Mustang series
After three years of intense design research Griggs Racing is proud to announce the release of the long anticipated GR40 Series turnkey Mustangs.
We set forth to produce a turnkey car that was true to the GR40 race winning pedigree, while putting twenty-five plus years of Mustang chassis engineering to use on a completely new vehicle.
Griggs will continue to lead the pack.
More information about the new GR40 Mustang can be found at www.gr40.com
The Ferrari Club Virginia City Hill Climb is an event the Griggs Racing staff enjoy attending each year.
The 5.2 mile course on Route 342 features breathtaking views and death defying cliffs. Ride along with John Griggs in his 660whp '98 GR40 Cobra Mustang Convertible
(daily driver/open track car with SLA upgrade) as he demonstrates the car's sure-footedness up the hill. Every performance part, from the GR40 suspension system to the convertible roll bar,
is available for purchase from Griggs Racing Products or the Griggs Racing Dealer nearest you.
To date: No Ferrari has been able to beat John. I hope they let us back next year.
GR40 Aluminum Spindle -
Griggs Racing announces a new Billet Aluminum Modular Spindle and Hub Assembly designed for use on kit cars, street rods, GR350 vintage and GR40 late model Mustangs.
It is five to six times stronger that the stock unit and, in true Griggs fashion, the entire assembly is lighter than an OEM SN95 or S-197 spindle/hub assembly.
Read about the improved performance in the GR40 Spindle Article

GR40 Mustang sets AIX track record and wins first time out
Darrell Anderson's newly constructed '04 GR40 Mustang set a new track record
and won its first race at Infineon Raceway on Saturday.
Piloted by Guy Cunningham for its inaugural event, the #45 GR40 mount was quick out of the box. \"We haven't even started development tuning of this car yet, and we did none of that this weekend," said Cunningham,
who also stated he was pleased to be racing in the prestigious American Iron Extreme class of the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) series of races.
The car is the latest SN95 based GR40RT pony to come out of the Griggs Racing livery and has been a sensation everywhere it has been shown. Anderson is to be the on-going driver; however a schedule conflict necessitated Cunningham filling in.
Of note, Bruce Griggs, Cunningham's team mate in prior years was also in the event, finishing second on Saturday in his venerable "Old Blue" '93 GR40 Mustang, the same car in the same configuration that was undefeated in 2002 AIX competition, and winning championships in 2002, 2003,
and other selected races and events in SCCA and NASA.
"The #40 car was sitting in the back of the shop since last run a year ago at the SAAC convention at Miller Motorsport Park in Utah driven by noted journalist Tom Wilson", said Griggs.
He brought it out at the last minute "to see if he could still drive." Griggs, who turns 60 this year, said, "I guess I can still do it, and I guess the old slug can still run too." This was proven by Griggs' victory the following day in Sunday's AIX race.
