Doran Enterprises has a long tradition of excellence on and off the race
track. The Lebanon, Ohio-based company is widely regarded as one of the best
operations ever in endurance sports car racing. It has a proven history of
excellent return for its motorsports marketing partners and customers.
Doran Enterprises consists of a family of companies. Its motorsports
activities generally fall under the nameplate of Doran Enterprises (the umbrella
company), Doran Racing (a professional racing team) and Doran Designs (a race car
and race car parts fabrication and restoration business).
Doran Racing has prepared and fielded race cars in a wide variety of series
for many years, from Indy cars to NASCAR trucks. It is legendary for the many
championships and events it has won in endurance sports car racing, however.
A DORAN JE4 Daytona Prototype designed and built by Doran Designs won both
the team (Bell Motorsports) and the driver (Terry Borcheller) championships in
the Grand-Am Rolex Series in 2003. The marque finished third in the car
constructors' standings in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and fourth in 2007.
In 2002 Doran-Lista Racing won the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona with a Dallara
Judd. The team's lead driver in 2002, Didier Theys, won Grand-Am's driver
championship that year, while Doran-Lista Racing finished second in the team
standings for the third consecutive year.
Under Kevin Doran's direction, the Doran Racing-prepared MOMO Ferrari was the
first and only team in U.S. history to win the 24 Hours at Daytona, the 12
Hours of Sebring and the Watkins Glen Six-Hour race in the same year (1998).
Doran Racing Dominates at VIR But Comes Up Just 2 Minutes Short When Rolling the Dice on Fuel
The Doran Racing Nissan 370Z #14 of Brad Jaeger and B.J. Zacharias led half of Saturday's Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at VIRginia International Raceway, but the team didn't get the results they wanted when the two-and-a-half-hour race was decided by fuel mileage. There were no full-course cautions for 30 laps when the team needed one to save fuel, and although it had the two fastest cars in the 66-lap race it ended up just 2 minutes/two laps short of a victory.
