Bill Wu retired as a doctor several years ago to pursue professional rally street racing. He has raced consecutively in professional street races for the last 4 years. Traveling around the world he races in the Gum Ball 3000, the Bull Run and many other rally style street races. For the past several years Bill has been racing one of his fleet of Lamborghini Mercialgos. Then in 2005, after deciding to look for a different style of vehicle to race, he came to Predator to build a custom flat black H2 Duramax Diesel Hummer. Once the conversion on his H2 Hummer was completed, he used the vehicle as a support unit for his Lamborghini.
On the last leg of the Gumball 3000 race, his Lamborghini Mercialgo broke down. Bill Wu decided that the H2 Diesel Duramax Hummer would take him to the end of the race. Problem was, his H2 Hummer was registered in the Gum Ball 3000 as a support vehicle and therefore was not eligible to place in the actual race. Despite that issue, he jumped into the Predator built Duramax H2 support vehicle to continue on the race leaving the broken down Lamborghini on the side of the road. His Hummer went on to place 2nd overall even though the vehicle wasn’t technically in the race! Since then, Bill has consistently placed in the top 3 positions for each of the races he has competed in using the Predator H2 as his race vehicle. With a top speed of 160mph and a range of over 1200 miles between refuels, the Predator H2 Duramax Diesel Hummer is sure to win many more races! Recently, Bill just landed a position on the new reality tv show “Bull Run”, set to air this next summer. Bill’s next project with us includes a fully ground up restoration on an H1 Hummer Race Truck. Equipment includes the latest performance upgrades such as a dual ball bearing GT 42R Turbo, RapTorq High Performance Race Tune, Dual Fueler CP3 Pump Kit, Predator Stage V Transmission Upgrade Kit, High Performance Fuel Rail, and Predator RapJet Stage 3 Injectors which would allow the truck to push the 1000hp and 1900ft/lbs of torque range. Fuel economy will also be important, as Bill will be racing the Gumball 3000 race this coming year. The Gumball 3000 is a race that stretches over 3000 miles from Los Angeles, California to Miami, Florida in seven days with over 120 Race Cars. Interior options will include a full custom Blacked Out theme using the highest quality leather and suede materials available. Additionally, the vehicle will be outfitted with a CB radio, Sideband Radio, VHF Radio, full navigation system, and police scanner.Read more
