A brand new class of cars for the 2016 season, these spectacular Group 5 racing cars are produced by a company known as Racer under the brand name of Racers Sideways. The range of Group 5 cars available to buy includes Porsche, B.M.W, Ferrari, Ford Capri and Lancia with some of those being available in different liveries and configurations.|
The cars are run in more or less 'out of the box' condition, with almost no modifications being allowed. Tyres are issued from a store held at our clubroom and returned by each driver at the end of the evening.
In a departure from our normal two classes per night routine, we plan to run much longer heats with these cars with the heat length being determined by the number of members attending on any given night. The first time we raced these cars the heats were 8 minutes in length and the winning driver on the night complete just over 200 laps in the 32 minutes.
Here is a January 2018 picture showing that club members have become much more adventurous with their choice of cars and liveries.
