2003 Paul Tracy Forsythe Race Used IndyCar Suit
Stunning race used suit worn by popular Canadian Paul Tracy During his 2003 Champ Car Series Championship win.
Tracy made an off-season move to the?Player’s Forsythe team?for the?2003 season. He?won the first three races of a season, scoring victories in?St. Petersburg,?Monterrey, and?Long Beach. His other season victories came at?his home county tracks in Toronto and?Vancouver, then two more wins at Mid-Ohio, and?Mexico City. Tracy also earned six poles, and ten podiums on the way to his first Championship.
This Sparco suit is in the usual light/dark blue and white Player’s Forsythe colors with the ?Racing Excellence? logo to the front and ?Racing Since 1961? rounded ?logo on the back, along with having Ford and Champ Car patches attached.
What makes this suit rare is the fact that by seasons end the Tobacco Laws had kicked in meaning the team was not allowed to use the Team Players logo on the suits. Racing excellence was used for the last 2 rounds instead where Paul won the race ?in Mexico and clinched the Championship in Australia. This is the Australia suit as we had previously sold the Mexico win suit.
With Paul’s great career now in the history books, this suit is likely the most iconic one as its been photo matched to post race celebrations with the Vandebilt Cup. The photo below is from the rear of the 2003 Champ Car Autocourse book which is also included with the suit.
The suit is also personally signed and dated by Paul Tracy and comes with?full Certificate of Authenticity.
