Coupe
Chassis #: 83G-03
March built March 83G cars to GTP specifications. Three of them were purchased by Al Holbert, who ran two cars with Chevrolet V8 power and one with a turbocharged Porsche flat-six.

This March 83G competed in the IMSA GTP Class powered by a 360-cubic-inch Chevrolet engine. It is fitted with full ground effects and the 2200 pound car was clocked at 215 mph at Daytona. The car has a 31-gallon fuel capacity and can travel from zero-to-sixty mph in 3 seconds. The body consists of 5 pieces of Kevlar and carbon fibre, while the chassis is aluminum honeycomb monocoque.

Kenper Miller and David Cowart raced 'The Red Lobster' in the Camel GT Series from July 1983 through March 1985. During this span, the car had 11 top five finishes and 15 times it finished in the top 10.

For the past 10 years, the car has participated in select vintage races around the country.

Al Holbert was the original racer, with a 366 Chevy engine. It ran in red and white livery with CRC Chemicals / Red Roof Inn sponsorship. In four races in 1983 IMSA he earned a 2nd at Riverside, 1st in Miami, Mid Ohio and Laguna Seca.

He sold the car to David Cowart and Kemper Miller, who were sponsored by Red Lobster.

In 1983 they were 2nd in their debut at Brainerd IMSA, 4th at Sears point, 2nd at Mosport and 4th at the Daytona finale.

In 1984 they were 2nd at Laguna Seca, Mosport and Michigan, 3rd at Riverside, 4th at Road Atlanta, 6th at Sears Point and Lime Rock.

These were remarkable results for privateers.

After its retirement from racing, Camel leased the car for two years and displayed it in malls and public places to promote the IMSA series.

It was possibly the best known car of its day due to the distinctive graphics that suited the shape of the car. IMSA went so far as to lease the car for use at promotional events.
