In its prime, the IROC (International Race of Champions) series was white hot, thanks in no small part to heavy promotion gained by Chevrolet’s introduction of the IROC-Z Camaro in 1985. Twenty-three years later, IROC is no more, a reality that was foreshadowed last year when its series sponsor pulled out and no races were run.
All of the organization’s assets are being liquidated at an auction on March 7 at the IROC shop in Tinton Falls, N.J. Tools, shop equipment, parts, 15 race cars and IROC memorabilia will cross the block starting at 10 a.m. A pre-auction inspection is scheduled for 8 a.m.
The sale will be a good opportunity for enthusiasts to bid on a piece of racing history. For retrospective photos and information, visit www.irocracing.com, or for photos and lists of items to be auctioned, go to www.auctionlistservices.com.
