Jim Craik should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Cadillac Northstar LMP

Hello,

My name is Jim Craik, a few months back, I purchased one of the six, 2000 Cadillac LMP carbon monocoques. This is chassis #00-002, one of the DAMS cars.

This chassis only ran in a few races during the 2000 season, it was one of the black Motorola cars, #4, 2000 Le Mans and was then damaged in a fire. The fire melted some of the carbon in the lower left, but per Riley & Scott, the alum core is not damaged and can be repaired.

What I have is the monocoque, with fuel cell, steering rack, master cylinders, firewall with engine mounts, shifter and all front suspention mounting brackets.

Does anyone here have have or know someone who has info/data on these cars, the other chassis and parts.

Thanks in advance, Jim

I have some photos in the Chassis History Archive section, but I cant figure out how to move them here, sorry.

Sounds like you have already been in contact with Riley & Scott. Have you contacted DAMS or any of the drivers, engineers, mechanics? Jon Fricker at Wayne Taylor Racing looks like a good person to start with. Perhaps Wayne Taylor as well.

Cool project!

Hi Racer,

I have not yet contacted Riley & Scott, the info I have is from a report made after the fire, Le Mans 2000. The team then kept 00-002 as a spare.

I have sent an email to DAMS, but I have not heard back. I also spoke to a guy in Apple Valley CA, who has 00-004.

My chassis only ran in the 2000 races and was the first body style with the large NACA ducts on each side.

As I understand most of the other cars were modified to 2001 spec, with a number of mods, including a different radiator location and slightly different bodywork.

The last ones, the 2002 cars were completely different.

Mr. Craik,

You realize that by having posted here you have now obligated yourself to posting a complete photo history of the rebuild ....

We are all eagerly awaiting news of progress on the project. Hope it is very satisfying for you and proceeds smoothly to completion.

That's a very interesting chassis you've picked up. I remember watching Le Mans on TV that year and the car catching fire very early in the race and burning for a long time. I'm really surprised the chassis is still around.

Are you planning on restoring the car to running condition? I always wonder what happens to these cars once they are retired. I see a few of them turn up at vintage racing events but I'm sure a lot of them just end up in storage for many years.

Although I live in the Silicon Valley, I'm sort of a 20th Century kind of guy.....

I have a couple of chassis photos in the Chassis History Archive section, but I can't figure out how to move them here, does anyone know the trick?
