Dragon Sr1 DSR/Bmod Solo
This Is where the Dragon’s all began. After racing a Legrand 25 for a few years Bill Gendron decided to improve the car with major chassis, drivetrain and aero changes. He campaigned the new car in Solo and on the track from 1994 through 2001, winning the Bmod National Championship in 1997.
The name? For those who like Science Fiction, you may have read Anne McCaffery’s novels about a society where humans have a symbiotic relationship with dragons. Ruth is the name of a special White Dragon (the only one ever hatched). He is small in stature but large in accomplishment. All Ms. McCaffery’s dragons have names ending in “th”, so do all Dragon cars.

Ruth was sold in 2002 to my good friend, the late Tommy Saunders who drove it exclusively in Solo and along with his co drivers won an additional 7 National Solo Championships. It is still running solo and is always one of the cars to beat.
