    Ed your car is a winner.
    Wrap something around the steering wheel, cover the driver seat and remove the cig lighter before you send it off.

    Yes. I do have a belly pan on the 330GT.
    It has a scoop in the front to capture air flow which exits by a gap the rear, with the air cooling the transmission.

    The small belly pan on your car appears to have no gaps to enable air flow. Or is it just that I cannot see them from the photo?

    Lowell, you are correct, there are no air scoops on my pan, it is a two piece unit, unlike the 330 gt cars have a one piece

    there is no cooling effect on mine, but it does seal keep the wind stream separated from the engine, trans area. aerodynamic purpose?? i dont know?

    From your photos it appears that the pan does not cover the engine sump, just the transmission and a small, further distance back. I am still at a loss for its purpose.

    Lowell said:
    Is there a gap at the rear of the belly pan to exhaust air?

    So perhaps it is used to cool the transmission just like the one on a 330GT.

    Does a 250 GT/E have a belly pan as well as an E?

    If the judges have been following this thread, they should award you and the car without it even needing to be shipped there. Amazing job! Good luck!
