What happens when a race team goes under? They sell all their stuff, of course. Think of it as an estate sale, except, instead of old sports coats and a tube TV, this sale features helmets and race cars.
When SpeedSource Race Engineering team owner Sylvain Tremblay decided to shutter the outfit, he no longer had a need for a lot of stuff. His loss is our gain, as Motorsport.com reports that an auction will take place in Florida on December 19th with some awesome stuff crossing the block.
Key Auctioneers divides everything up into categories: Race Cars and Equipment, Machine Shop Equipment, and Hospitality and Memorabilia.
You might be amazed at some of the stuff you will find scrolling through the listing. Racing helmets, pit crew clothes, TVs, lap tops, pit signs, boxes full of spare parts, whole engines... EVERYTHING is for sale. Just browsing through, here are some of our favorites:

Yes, you can straight up buy these race cars along with boxes and buckets of spare parts. Just remember that the engines are auctioned separately. So don't spend your whole budget on the chassis. That would just be embarrassing.
