The cars are based on a Holden Commodore VE chassis, as you may know there are many variants of this same chassis in different countries for example here in the UK they are Vauxhall VXR8’s. The cars were originally built for a single make championship in Bahrain, they ran for a few seasons then put into storage. They were then shipped to the UK in 2014. This particular car, in yellow, was raced in the Britcar series for 3 rounds and won a race in its class. The season is planned to consist of 7 race meetings with two or three races over a weekend. The car is ready to race in the UK V8 Series which starts this year on May 1st at Brands Hatch.
The final format is yet to be decided still but the idea being is that the championship will focus on having identical cars and will be strictly scrutineered to ensure fairness for all and to allow for driver talent to prevail, the way that racing should be in the eyes of the Series organiser. It is powered by a mighty 6.2 litre Chevrolet producing around 360 bhp.
An exciting opportunity to acquire a “ fire spitting” V8 race car which is on the button and can be used in a proper Series this year or as a very exciting track day car – whichever is more suited to your needs. Absolutely stunning and at a very reasonable price considering its pedigree.
