APM Volunteer Rex Yoakam, with help from Cliff Hatz, is making rapid progress on his original design called simply, the "Racer".

It is a single place low wing monoplane that is powered by a Ranger V-12 engine. It definitely has the look of a 1930's style pylon polisher and with the V-12 should be an impressive performer.

Rex and Cliff are currently finishing up the extensive amount of sheet metal work on the fuselage.
