Sector111 unveiled the first US-built BAC Mono at Saturday’s Cars and Coffee in Irvine, California. The car was built from a knock-down kit, and Sectior111 says the company’s allocation of 2012 Mono units has completely sold out. It’s currently taking orders for 2013 models. The single-seat, street-legal racer tips the scales at a mere 1,190 pounds, and gets around your favorite track thanks to thrust from a 280-horsepower 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine worked up by the minds at Cosworth.
“The BAC Mono is a purist sports car that looks stunning in person,” stated Shinoo Mapleton, President of Sector111. “Cars&Coffee is a casual event attended by real car fanatics so I am excited to host the first USA unveiling with this crowd of enthusiasts.”
A little over a year ago, BAC announced it was partnering with Sector111 to bring its heathen machine to our shores, albeit in very low numbers. The company shipped just 12 knockdown kits to the states. Check out the BAC Mono video review from the UK below.

A Main was a very fun race with the amazing Russ McGrane leading the pack. Russ took the jump off the rolling start and pulled away from the rest of the pack. The real excitement was between Kevin and Michael fighting for that 2nd spot. Going around the teardrop on track 2, Kevin motored his way past Michael to claim that 2nd position. A lot of new faces to the 2013 GP Season.
B Main got off to a rocky start with two drivers spinning out on lap 3. Nick, Randy, and Tony after the restart were untouchable, pulling away from the entire pack taking the podium finishes. A lot of great talent here. We look forward to the upcoming events to see how their talents progressed.
