Indianapolis, Ind. — Indianapolis-based Key Auctioneers announced that it will be auctioning the complete assets of Panther Racing on Wednesday, July 23. The auction includes several Panther racecars and a wide selection of rolling stock, memorabilia, car parts, performance racing equipment, and shop tools.
Panther Racing was founded in 1997 by a group that included former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jim Harbaugh. The team had many notable successes over the years including two consecutive IRL championships in 2001 and 2002, and four consecutive runner-up finishes in the Indy 500. But the team has struggled in recent years. Earlier this year the team filed a lawsuit against the IRL and others alleging that bidding improprieties led to Panther losing the $17.2 million Army National Guard sponsorship to Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.
The auction will include two 2011 IndyCar racing cars, Sam Hornish's 2003 Chicago and Fontana race-winning, record-setting car, and fiberglass show cars along with the team motorhome, trailers, computers and a wide range of other equipment. The complete selection can be found on the Key Auctioneers website.
The auction will take place Wednesday, July 23 beginning at 10 a.m. at Panther's facility at 5740 Decatur Blvd, Indianapolis. Online bidding will also be available. An inspection of the items will take place on July 22 beginning at 10 a.m.
