Default Single Seaters & Sports Racing cars.

Do you have any single seater & sports racing cars out there.
If so what are they & do you have races meets for them?
Singapore stopped racing in the 70's & now it's limited to small events in the public Go - Kart ( public car park ) track.

Interesting!. Incidently what chassis are in the single seaters?

Don't think I can make it to your racing school.
I've just hit 70 - not MPH but years & handicaped - (had a stroke 3 years ago)

Still manage to drive though, although difficult to get an insurance.

Best of luck you guys & happy motoring.

I was thinking of building a race car-somthing like the atom using
the old m800 for parts and build the chassis out of steel tubing like the atom. Somthing like a formula maruti cars.

Hey thats the car from Ariel. its called the Atom. The engine is from a Honda Integra Type R supercharged pushing out 300hp. Does 0-100km/hr in 2.9 seconds. Faster around the track than a honda cbr 600rr. 20,000pounds for this insane vehicle.!
