With a racing career spanning over 40 years, Paul Newman had many racing suits. This Sparco model R507 EN-340, however, was his very last one. Used from the 2003 racing season straight through to his last laps a month before his passing, this bore witness to some of Paul’s last great victories. Embroidered with his initials, ‘PLN’, the logo of his Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, ‘Butch’, and a small McDonald’s logo at his right shoulder – each piece represented something near and dear to him. McDonald’s was one of his great sponsors at Newman-Haas Racing, and as such Paul can often be seen wearing a McDonald’s hat or logo throughout his later years. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was the charitable foundation that he set up with his family to provide summer camp for children less fortunate – a foundation that still runs to this day with the help of the Newman Family. Lastly, ‘Butch’ referencing his iconic role as Butch Cassidy from the 1969 film. Those details aside, this suit was present for some of his last great racing moments in his 800hp GT-1 Corvette. His last race at his home track, Lime Rock Park, in the Pirelli Trans-Am Series (5th Place Finish), and his last ever professional race at Watkins Glen in 2007 where he took pole position. Outside of racing, this was the suit he used in 2007 when he took Barbera Walters around Lime Rock Park at over 100mph for what would be his last major interview, and the suit he was wearing on August 13, 2008 when he would strap into that GT-1 Corvette for the last time a month before his passing. As any serious racer would want mentioned – on that August day in 2008, he was still running laps within 9/10th of his all-time-track record.
