GP2 Dallara running car, ex. Kobayashi

Following a successful GP2 Asia Series campaign in early 2008, Kobayashi secured his first GP2 Series victory in only the second race of the season. Starting strongly from pole position in the sprint race at the Circuit de Catalunya, Kobayashi crossed the finish line in first place. This victory came after a controversial incident involving defensive driving from his former Euro Series teammate Romain Grosjean following a safety car period. As Kobayashi attempted to pass Grosjean at the end of the pit straight, the Frenchman made multiple defensive moves, forcing Kobayashi to take evasive action. This led to a drive-through penalty for Grosjean, ultimately handing the win to Kobayashi.


Technical condition: The engine has approximately 3,500 kilometers of mileage and requires overhaul at 5,000 kilometers. The estimated cost for the overhaul is between EUR 35,000 and EUR 39,000.

The gearbox has been consistently overhauled with wearing parts being continuously replaced, maintaining its perfect condition. The revisions are conducted by Florian Leidinger in Wels, Austria.

The current servicing of the car amounts to EUR 7,000, for which an invoice will be provided. This servicing includes the installation of a new clutch, ensuring readiness for the entire 2024 season.
