GeeBee R-2_EA

The R-2 was built for the Bendix Trophy race (cross country racing), but it was thought that it would be a strong contender in pylon racing as well. The 1932 R-2 was powered by the very same Pratt & Whitney R985 that had powered the 1931 Model Z, rated at 535hp. The R985 engine had a diameter of 45-3/4" and a frontal area of 11.42 sq.ft. This allowed the R-2 to have a more streamlined cowling and come closer to the ideal teardrop shape.
