Chili-Pepper-Racing-JettaAt the time, this was the world’s only bio-diesel powered professional race car AND the first production-based diesel-powered car to race in the US. Campaigned by Austin Hatcher Foundation Chairman and co-founder Dr. Jim Osborn’s Chili Pepper Racing team during the 2007 – 2008 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge seasons, the car began its life as a production Jetta TDI sedan. Extensive modifications were required to the engine electronics and body during the adaptation to race car form. Notably, engineers marveled at the technology that was originally built into the car, as they sought to find ways to simplify its systems and lighten its weight for race conditions. This vehicle has been sold and donated back to the Foundation six times since 2008 and has raised nearly $500,000 for use in our mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer for children and families.
