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).
Alternator Problem While Running Fifth Causes Wild Spin And Spoils Doran Racing's Chances Saturday at VIR
Brad Jaeger had Doran Racing's #14 Nissan NISMO 370Z up to fifth place on lap 20 in Saturday's IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at VIRginia International Raceway when a failing alternator caused him to lose control on the backstretch. The car went into a series of spins, careening sideways on the track at about 155 miles per hour right in front of traffic and then onto the grass trackside.
